Iran Revolutionary Guards ready to escort Gaza ships
Alertnet.org ^
Posted on June 6, 2010 5:59:13 AM PDT by Sub-Driver

Iran Revolutionary Guards ready to escort Gaza ships 06 Jun 2010 12:40:35 GMT Source: Reuters TEHRAN, June 6 (Reuters) - Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards are ready to provide a military escort to cargo ships trying to break Israel’s blockade of Gaza, a representative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Sunday.

“Iran’s navy forces are ready to escort the peace flotilla to Gaza with all their powers and capabilities,” Ali Shirazi, Khamenei’s representative inside the Revolutionary Guards, was quoted as saying by the semi-official Mehr news agency.

Any intervention by the Iranian military would be considered highly provocative by Israel which accuses Iran of supplying weapons to Hamas, the Islamist movement which rules Gaza.

The Guards, with their own navy, air force and command structure separate from the regular armed forces, are seen as fiercely loyal to the values of the Islamic Republic.

“If the Supreme Leader issues an order for this then the Revolutionary Guard naval forces will do their best to secure the ships,” Shirazi said. “It is Iran’s duty to defend the innocent people of Gaza.”

SNIPPET: “Hezbollah has said Sami Shehab is a member of the group who had been providing military supplies to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip with the help of up to 10 others but denied targeting Egypt.

The prosecution said the men included Egyptians, Palestinians, Lebanese and Sudanese, and that four were not in custody.”

EGYPT ARRESTS TERRORIST CELL OF 25 MEMBERS
INTERNET-HAGANAH.com ^ | July 9, 2009 | n/a
Posted on July 9, 2009 1:33:56 PM PDT by Cindy

Note: The following text is a quote:

09 July 2009 EGYPT ARRESTS TERRORIST CELL OF 25 MEMBERS CAIRO, July 9 (Xinhua)

The Egyptian authorities have arrested a terrorist cell of 25 members, 24 Egyptians and one Palestinian, for plotting to carry out terrorist attacks in Suez Canal, Egyptian Interior Ministry said in statement issued on Thursday.

According to the statement, the members of the cell who believe in Jihad (Holy War) were located in Cairo, Alexandria and Daqahlia governorates and communicated through internet with other terrorist groups outside Egypt.

The cell’s members, mostly engineers, were developing high-tech and electronic devices like mobile phones to carry out terrorist attacks against vital targets in Egypt such as Suez Canal and oil pipelines, the statement said.

They confessed of plotting to carry out car bombing and that they received money from foreign sources to fund their activities.

The cell is led by an Egyptian man called Ahmed El-Sayyed El-Sharawy, who lives in El-Marg neighborhood in northern Great Cairo.

The police seized some books calling for Jihad, a laser printer used to forge money and a gun used in killing an owner of a jewelry shop in May 2008.

And speaking of just such Egyptians, has anyone seen Layth al-Islam lately?

SNIPPET: “Hamas expressed hope on Sunday that a visit by Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa to the Gaza Strip would pave the way for the lifting of the four-year-old blockade on the area.

Moussa said upon his arrival in the Gaza Strip that the blockade must end. He said that all the Arab countries should support the Palestinians in their battle against the blockade.”

Once again this brings to mind the parallels between “Palestinians” and Sudeten Germans in the Nazi era. Netanyahu wrote about it. (The Sudeten crisis was manufactured by Hitler and he attacked with the ostensible motive of humanitarian concern for oppressed people.)
Indeed, why “invade” or “attack” — it’s so vulgar and belligerent — when you can claim to be on a humanitarian mission and have the UN cheerleading for you? If Hitler had had the UN behind him, we’d all be speaking German or not at all.

Yep. The ME finally got the traitor in the WH that they needed, so they’re going to lower the boom on Israel.

If any meaningful combination of the Iranians, Syrians, Hamas, Hezbollah and/or the PA advance on Israel while the Saudis, Egypt, Jordan and Turkey step back, I don’t see a way for Israel to not nuke them.

US: Israel’s flotilla inquiry ‘important step’
Washington welcomes naming Turkel committee to probe events of Gaza flotilla raid; while PA, Turkey reiterate demand for UN-led investigation

Yitzhak Benhorin
Latest Update: 06.14.10, 23:38 / Israel News

WASHINGTON – The United States welcomed Israel’s inquiry into its deadly raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla, calling it an “important step forward.”

The Israeli cabinet voted Monday in favor of creating of an internal committee, including two foreign observers, to probe the May naval raid, which left nine people dead.

US State Department Spokesman Philip Crowley said that Washington saw the decision as a step towards meeting the UN’s demand for an inquiry.

“I think this is an important step forward in what is called for in the UN Security Council presidential statement. That said, we’re not going to prejudge the process or the outcome,” he said.

Daughter of top CAIR official joined HAMAS caravan, met with HAMAS leaders...
THE JAWA REPORT - blog ^ | February 4, 2010 03:57 AM | By Barbarossa
Posted on February 4, 2010 5:41:23 PM PST by Cindy

“Daughter of top CAIR official joined HAMAS caravan, met with HAMAS leaders with father’s support and approval”

SNIPPET: “In late December and early January, a convoy loaded with supplies, vehicles and hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash under the banner of the group Viva Palestina, led by far-left UK politician George Galloway, wound its way through Europe, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt to its final destination - the awaiting arms of the Hamas terrorlords of Gaza. Along the way, this convoy was met by a number of Hamas leaders, including several who have been designated as global terrorists by the US government.

In early December, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA), chairman of the House Subcommittee on Terrorism, asked for both the FBI and IRS to investigate the illegal fundraising and support of Hamas by Viva Palestina in the US.

Included in this Hamas support convoy were approximately 50 US citizens.”

“Hamas and the Gaza Blockade”
by IPT News • Jun 14, 2010 at 3:11 pm

SNIPPET: “Following Israel’s interception of the “Freedom Flotilla” on the Mediterranean Sea, news outlets reported on condemnations of Israel for the ensuing violence. Some have said that the passengers on the flotilla’s IHH Mavi Marmara ship are to blame for the deaths of nine passengers after attacking Israeli commandos with clubs and knives.

No one was hurt on five other ships on which passengers peacefully surrendered.

Yet, there’s a relevant question which rarely is addressed in the news coverage of the incident: Would an end to the blockade soften the position of Hamas leaders toward peace?

In the San Francisco Chronicle on Sunday, Stanford University Professor Joel Brinkley called such a notion “utterly naïve.” He noted:

“Hamas leaders are single-minded, heedless of anything but their generational crusade. Could there be better evidence than Hamas’ refusal to accept the aid unloaded from the flotilla ships, tons of it - denying their people all of that food and medicine, preferring instead to make a political statement?”

Brinkley also called out the selective outrage that comes with any incident involving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. While the flotilla issue dominates headlines and diplomatic circles, gunmen in Pakistan killed 12 people in their hospital beds on the same day. The shooting victims had survived attacks on two mosques that killed 93 other people. The slaughter barely drew a peep in international condemnation. That prompted Brinkley to wonder:”

SNIPPET: “Israel asked EU countries to prevent flotilla vessels from leaving from their ports and to prevent their citizens from taking part, turning its attention to the diplomatic front as the wave of boats aiming for Gaza’s shores continues to grow.

The Naji el Ali is expected to arrive from Lebanon soon, and two vessels from Iran organized by the local Red Crescent with support from the regime in Tehran.

According to information obtained by the security establishment, Hamas is talking about no less than 10 flotillas by October 2010, the end of Ramadan. All the flotillas aim to take advantage of Israel’s diplomatic straits following the lethal raid on the last flotilla on May 31 in which nine activists were killed on the lead vessel. The new initiatives are based in Lebanon, Sudan and Iran as well as Britain, Norway, Turkey and other European countries.”
