After copying my exact format above, including the times I wrote in for both the unedited and edited audio recordings, someone forgot to ping me to his exact copy of my post. I spent quite a lot of time on the format of my thread, so that's why I'm pinging you all here. Hope you find it to be of some interest.
The unedited audio transmission is well worth the five plus minutes it takes to listen.
How much clearer can it be to realize what Israel is up against?
The diplomatic measures employed with great diligence by the Israel Defense Force and Israel Navy in the interest of protecting Israeli citizens, also serve to protect the flotilla of not so peaceful protesters bringing aid to Gaza.
The Rachel Corrie Linda refused to be boarded several times.
The Israel Defense Force off-loaded the shipped aid from the flotilla onto trucks earlier this past week. Those loaded trucks have now been standing by for nearly a week because the offers from the Israel Defense Force to transport the loaded trucks into Gaza continue to be refused.
It is fairly obvious that Gaza had no need for anything from those ships.
How could any State view the cries for humanitarian aid to Gaza as anything other than a ruse to transport terrorists and weapons into Gaza?
With the exception of our own Armed Forces, would any other country's armed forces be this patient?
Clear as mud. The IDF has admitted that they have no proof that message came from the Marmara, and there are some odd features about the recording.
To any and all paranoid knuckleheads: all the folks on this thread are pro-Israel including myself. There are countless enemies who will sucker us at any expense because they hate us and the Jews and therefore Israel and anyone could have made up a tape with the same stuff on it. Helen Thomas’ interview on Jew hating and go back to Poland is real because it has her mouth moving and is video as well. What we’re saying here is we need to do a better job on PROVING something of audio is real and we can’t just take it as real because it came from the internet. I still don’t have that verification. I may be real, but like Rush or Hannity or Beck, they don’t risk their reputation and play stuff on the radio until it is bulletproof. I’m sorry if you can’t see that logic.
