Gaza Flotilla Terrorists Set Sail Again
Canada Free Press ^ | 07/29/14 | Arnold Ahlert

Posted on 07/29/2014 5:01:54 AM PDT by Sean_Anthony

Apparently more than willing to pour gasoline on an already raging fire, an anti-Israeli Turkish relief organization, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation, is organizing a “Freedom Flotilla II” to bring “humanitarian” supplies to the Gaza strip. The IHH is the organization responsible for the last attempt to break the Israeli naval blockade of Gaza in a self-inflicted disaster that saw nine Hamas-affiliated terrorists killed by Israeli commandos, who were attacked when they attempted to board the Mavi Marmara. IHH chairman Bulent Yildrim warns that this time, the flotilla will be accompanied by Turkish Navy vessels to “protect us from any potential attack.”

Does this mean a Turkish Navy landing in Gaza?

Boats can sink. They especially have a propensity to do so when they are sent with hostile/provocative intent as part of a military move in violation of another nation’s defense perimeter. (What a little Satan Obama’s islamoNazi pal in Ankara has turned out to be... He will drag Turkey straight back to a 7th century Hell...)

The Turks enjoyed years of Israeli military assistance. Israel supplied them with avionics for their Phantoms and many other deals.

If Turkey is foolish enough to provoke Israel then her vessels will be great scuba diving relics at the bottom of the sea, off the Gaza coast.

Israel knows what the Turks have and how they use it. When will Erdoran ease off? Obama has his back and not Israel's.

If Ronald Reagan was president this wouldn’t be happening. And even if it was, Reagan would give the Turks one day to change their minds. This POTUS we have is USELESS! and anti-Semitic.

If Turkey’s navy accompanies the terrorists, Israel will face the real possibility of hostilities, but to let the flotilla through will assure a resupply line for Hamas. Erodan needs to be neutralized. Israel could help the Kurdish seperatists in Turkey or maybe find common ground with Russia since Turkey has been threatening to cut off Russian naval access from the Black Sea over Crimea. Obama will undoubtedly side with Turkey. This is a complicated mess.

It’s going to be a crying shame when the entire flotilla, including its’ Turkish Naval escorts, suddenly explodes and goes to the bottom. And I’m sure the Israelis are smart enough to use Russian, Chinese, or Iranian explosives and such. . .

Unfortunately, Turkey is part of NATO. If the Israelis attack the Turkish ships, NATO is obligated to defend them.

It certainly is not!
NATO is obligated to defend not escort offensive operations against a sovereign nation. One cannot simply attack another country and call to NATO for help.

NATO is a defensive alliance and only for the defense of Europe (and USA). NATO is not authorized to support aggressive projections of military forces like this. ( Don’t worry too much about NATO anyway — it’s too busy threatening Russia right now).

You're right BUT...I can see NATO not helping a Turkish provocation.
On the other hand, Obama is a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood and IHH. Could be tricky.

Don't forget at the end of his visit to Israel last time, Obama FORCED Netanyahu to apologize to Erdoran for the Marmara incident which was 100% the fault of Turkey.

You mean the way the U.S. was obligated to protect the Ukraine from Russian invasion in return for giving up their nukes?

Problem is, it might technically be Israeli forces “attacking” Turkish ships which would qualify as a defensive action. Look for aggressive maneuvering to force the Israels to ram or open fire.

Dunno. Obama might be a bit more enthused about attacking Israel.

Happy as I am that we’re not in the Ukraine, it is disgraceful that we did not honor our agreement.

Agreed. With that worthless jug-eared POS actively working against Israel, all of the scum know its open season to attack them.

Any ida how that matches up with the NATO adventurism into Libya just prior to Kadaffi's forced, and violent, exit?

you’ve put your finger on the problem

Obama was able to commandeer NATO and use its colors for his (mostly USA) bombing of Libya (to replace its government with a more violent IslamoNazi variety of thugs)

and so it goes. But whether Obama could get away with mis-using NATO again, is questionable. (I guess we will see...).

I think the invading military ships will just magically sink...

smile
smile
lots of boats have gone down in the great sea, after all.
nothing new to it.
boats sink.

but maybe the IDF will eliminate the threat openly and even film it and put it on youtube, to show the world what happens when a crazy man decides to send his navy hundreds of miles to invade Israel’s defense lines.

we will see.

Armed drones could easily take out the terrorist supply ship without attacking the naval escort.

Good luck with that.
Every country has the right to search ships for contraband weapons and other dangerous cargo.

Not sure why the Israelis risk lives.
Just hail the "humanitarian" ship and if they don't respond, sink them both.

Incidentally, it's worth remembering...

Gaza was never a country.
It is not now a country.
Finally, barring a miracle conversion to civilized behavior, it will never be one.
