Palin Speaks Truth To Power About Flotilla Incident





Because the Right has to have SOMEONE with the stones to stand up and speak the truth. Unless I’ve missed it, not one single elected Republican anywhere has made a statement anything like this.

Ok, I was caught napping. I thought the flotilla was going to be standard kabuki theater. I knew the ferry was from Turkey with hundreds aboard, and I knew it had been sponsored by “the IHH”. But I had no idea who that was or what their past has been. I didn’t put one and one together. Once the fight started, and the story hit the news, and the videos came out on YouTube, I read, looked, and quickly arrived at the conclusion that this was not a peaceful protest. That the participants were armed and were forcing a violent confrontation. And the videos show that they swung first.

Just think what could have happened had that ferry landed in Gaza and been full of armed jihadis. 600 of them. It would have been a small invasion force, sneaking in under the guise of “humanitarian aide” - a tactic used all too frequently by the Gazan terrorists, with their pretend ambulances etc. Of course Israel had to interdict the ships. And it’s an utter straw man to whine that they did it in “international waters”. My guess is that’s where the ships were in the pre-dawn hours; they may not have crossed into official Israeli waters until mid-afternoon the next day.

So who in the US government is speaking up for our #2 ally? Nobody.

Thank God we have Sarah Palin.

[...] instead of uniting behind Israel, Obama and many other countries united behind the Islamic extremists who are trying to ship arms to Hamas, and condemned Israel. After all what Obama and many countries failed to see was that the blockade is completely legal. USA has done similar blockades during the time of World War 2. Europe has done similar blockades in the past on multiple occasions. And Israel has the right to self defense, just like any other nation.

President Obama may not have come out in support of our dearest ally Israel. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have ditched Israel, when Israel needed our voice the most.

But Sarah Palin took her rifle out in defense of our greatest ally.

The media, as usual, seems to be reporting only one side of the Israeli Flotilla incident. Don’t trust the mainstream media to give you both sides of a story fairly… you must seek out fair reporting to ensure you have all the information.

As far too many in the media, and in various governments, rush to condemn Israel, we must put the recent events off Israel’s coast into the right perspective. This “relief” convoy was not about humanitarian aid, as the liberal mainstream media keeps reporting. The whole operation was designed to provoke Israel, not to provide supplies to Palestinians held hostage by Hamas terrorists in Gaza. Anyone who sees the video of Israeli commandos being attacked as they land on that ship knows the people aboard were vicious thugs, not “peace activists.” The media insults our intelligence with their outright mischaracterization of who these enemies are.

Israel delivers thousands of tons of humanitarian supplies every week to Gaza. These ships could have offloaded their cargoes at a nearby Israeli port if they really wanted to help the people of Gaza. Instead, they chose to incite confrontation and violence. Israel has a right to prevent arms shipments to Gaza that will be used to target innocent Israelis, so they were legitimately checking the cargo on the flotilla. Turkey has chosen to condemn Israel but we should be asking some serious questions about Turkey’s role in this whole affair. Why is a fellow member of NATO sponsoring such a dangerous publicity stunt? As one expert points out: “Three ships of that six-ship pro-terror convoy flew Turkish flags and were crowded with Turkish citizens. The Ankara government – led by Islamists these days – sponsored the ‘aid’ operation in a move to position itself as the new champion of the Palestinians. And Turkish decision-makers knew Israel would have to react – and were waiting to exploit the inevitable clash. The provocation was as cynical as it was carefully orchestrated.”

We can only hope the Obama Administration does not join the anti-Israel chorus in the aftermath of this staged confrontation. Please, Mr. President, we need to let Israelis know we stand with them in their fight against terrorists and those who arm and support them. America and her ally, Israel, stand by waiting for your response.

- Sarah Palin

It’s sad that Ms. Palin is 100% correct about the media. The people and organizations who earn vast amounts of money bringing us the news are merely bringing us their agenda. “All the news that fits”. If you want both sides you have to put the effort in and do your own research. That’s real work, and time consuming. So why bother to support the MSM if you only get their half of the story? I don’t. My mother gets all her info from the MSM. When we talk about news events it’s often as if we are talking about two entirely different stories. “I never heard that!” “Where did you get that?” “What? That’s not what ABC said at all!” Exactly Mom, exactly.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
