Israel intercepts MV Rachel Corrie

June 5, 2010

It went much better this time thankfully. No one hurt. The Israeli’s and the Irish (the ship is an Irish flagged vessel) had previously made arrangements and it appears that there were only 20 peace activists on board not 600 or so idiots intent on causing a fight.

(h/t)

-elsewhere-

Max Blumenthal alleges that the IDF has doctored the video of them attempting to intercept the Mavi Marmara –

The IDF’s propaganda is increasingly incredulous, yet the media is enthusiastically playing along. This audio, which purports to show flotilla passengers telling the IDF to “go back to Auschwitz,” appears to have been doctored by the IDF General Press Office or someone connected to it.

(…)

Further, the IDF is claiming its “Aushwitz” audio is from the Mavi Marmara. Yet it includes a recording of Huwaida Arraf saying “we have permission from the Gaza port authority to enter.” Huwaida has confirmed to the Institute For Middle East Understanding that her voice appeared in the apparently doctored clip. Unfortunately for the IDF, Huwaida was on the Challenger One, not the Mavi Marmara. How can the IDF account for this inconvenient discrepancy?

Blumenthal is pretty well known as a smear monger so take the above for what it’s worth.

Meanwhile Helen Thomas does tell Israelis to go back to Poland or wherever –

-FMJRA stuff-

Dustbury followed up on the King County assessor and his reported plans to go back and reassess property values.

Curses! Foiled Again! linked my arguments that although Israel may have had the right to intercept the Mavi Marmara, the manner in which it was handled made the situation much worse. He disagrees (but then again so does almost everyone so I am used to it).

    Wasn’t Helen Thomas married to Mr. Slade?
