Iranian Marines Set To Escort Flotilla 'To Teach Israel Lessons'
IsraelNationalNews ^ | June 13, 2010 | By Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Posted on 06/13/2010 5:47:23 AM PDT by Fennie

Two Iranian ships intended to head for Hamas-controlled Gaza are waiting for their government's approval to challenge Israel on the high seas, escorted by "volunteer marines" that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wants to send "to teach Israelis a lesson."

An Iranian Red Crescent official said the two ships are waiting for the Iranian foreign ministry to give the green light for launching, according to the French news service AFP, quoting the Iranian Mehr news service. The Red Crescent said a third ship probably would join the fleet.

Red Crescent official Mojtaba Majd also claimed that more than 100,000 Iranians have signed up to board the ships, but only those with "expertise" would be accepted. Majd did not define the area of expertise required.

Ali Shirazi, the Revolutionary Guards's spokesman for Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said it was "Iran's duty to defend the innocent people of Gaza."

I beg to differ .. it will be WWIII first .. and that will be between GOD and several other nations - Russia, Iran, and all Muslim nations.

And .. it will be fun to watch GOD beat the stuffin’ out of them all.

If you’re wondering how ..?? GOD throws rocks (it’s in the Bible - look it up).

This not quite what it seems, but it may turn out worse. Iran is concerned about possible Turkish inroads regarding Iran's control of Hizbollah and Hamas. The Israelis make a convenient foil, but the object is counteracting Turkish influence. And the Iranians know from the total collapse of opposition to their nuclear weapons efforts that no one will try to stop them.

This is extremely dangerous - this kind of brinksmanship was bad enough being played between Arab and Persian, and now we have the Turks in the mix. Were this any other administration a few quiet words concerning ejection from NATO and pulling of U.S. support for Turkish EU membership would cool the thing down a bit. The 0bama administration apparently doesn't have a clue. Foreign policy isn't really their strong suit - they have their own country to tear down.

You are so correct. Everytime an American president stood AGAINST Israel .. we had some castastrophic event.

People need to check history and see how true that is.

...Ahmadinejad wants to send "to teach Israelis a lesson."?

The only "lessons" AhmADinnerJacket could teach the Israelis is "stupid" or maybe "creepy totalitarian"... beyond that, he's got nothing...

‘To Teach Israel Lessons’

- “Learn to swim in thirty seconds”
- “’D’ isn’t just for Dramamine, it’s also for Depends!”
- “Floating Iranians absorb oil pretty well when they have holes in them”
- “Sharks eat Muslims, too”

I saw him on yesterday evening, and the interviewer interrupted him constantly. Hayworth ended with a comment like, “I will get this border under control...”, and the interviewer actually said, “Well, Senator McCain wasn’t able to be here, but I know he would say the same thing.”

Honestly, I wanted to reach through the tube and choke the guy.

I think it was Chris Wallace, but I may be mistaken. I watched a number of things on FoxNews over the last 24 hours and I may have confused the host. BTW, Hayworth was not the sole guest. I tuned in late and am not sure the exact focus of the segment.

You touch on an important point. It’s a very sore one with the both of us.

You cold simplify it even more. If you just want a coastal defense weapon, how about a super-stealthy robotic submersible? Load it with whatever weapons load is required for the mission and launch it underwater from a coastal base. Feed it continuous GPS updates on the target’s location and let it seek and destroy.

I usually watch FOX News Sunday - and I don’t remember Hayworth being on.

But .. I think it was one of the MSM - like Face the Nation or one of those. I recall seeing an ad for it.

Well .. here’s a secret I’ve learned. When a program is on the air live, you can go to “on air” on their home page and when you get inside, you can send the program an email. I’ve used it several times and it seems to work quite well.

The worst example was when one of Hannity’s usual left wing hacks made the statement, “... and Bush stole the election”.

I went ballistic .. went to the on-air email and let them have it. Names, dates, facts and facts and facts. What really totally ticked me off .. NOBODY SAID ANYTHING CONTRARY .. they just let the statement stand. I was not nice about that .. saying somebody should have called him on that outrageous lie!

Guess what .. I’VE NEVER HEARD ANYBODY MENTION THAT INFORMATION EVER SINCE.

This type of thing is just typical of the left. They just throw out their bombs and many on the right do not have the courage to challenge them. Sad.

I’ve seen the same thing, and I think your suggestion is a good one. Those stink bombs have me screaming at the screen, and the leftists just love to drop one of those particularly around the end of the program.

The show should be halted and those addressed before it continues.

Furthermore, I would led the guest know, that if they made an insupportable charge moments before the end of the show, they would be black-balled for a year after the incident unable to return.

Yeah, I agree .. but they use those issues to keep people coming back to the program. Some of them, Hannity for one, thrive on argument.

Can’t stand most of it .. I’d much rather watch Beck because he’s so informative and he rarely has objectionable or argumentative people on his program.

I’m having a hard time with Beck. I decided to give him a try. The first three shows were so good, I wanted to record them to show to others. On about the fourth (3rd or 4th), he addressed our national debt, and started ripping our expenditures on the military. He couched it with the trappings of corporate greed, and loyalty over dollars.

Look, I think we get ripped off when it comes to military spending, but taking a hatchet to programs we need is way, way, way, down my list.

Ted Kennedy could have given the same presentation.

I erased his shows and never looked back.

Projecting a strong military is the only place I am tolerant of us going over budget on. He made me so mad I wanted to yell at the screen again.

Ditto. All these people here on FR laughing it up, imagining Israel teaching Iran a thing or two. But when the smoke clears, what will happen?

Agreed. And there are just as many on the left who want Iran to teach Israel a thing or two.

The Korean peninsula is in dire straits. China, Russia, and Turkey are anxious to flex their muscles. Syrian, Hamas, and Hezbollah are emboldened. Obama is weak, distracted, and a ditherer. He's certainly no friend of Israel. Even if he feels publicly pressured to do the right thing, one false move on the part of Israel's enemies could unleash a war that would be over in a matter of hours.

Ahmadinejad is anxious to hasten the coming of the Mahdi and to unite Iran around a common cause. "Blame the Jews" is a time-honored technique.If Iran doesn't already have a nuclear bomb, of its own design or from the Norks, it can whip up a dirty bomb. It wouldn't surprise me a bit if Syria or Hezbollah already has some dirty bombs on their Iranian-supplied missiles.

This scenario does not have a pleasant ending.

Yield from a nuke the Iranians can conceivably produce would only (detonated on the surface) vaporize the people in the immediate area.

Hmmmm ..?? Didn’t have a DVR then so I missed all those programs.

I think Beck has a problem with war and his new-found religion. It’s nothing new. Most people who are new at religion have a problem with war. Maybe if (or when) we get attacked again, he’ll change his mind.

Anyway, the stuff Beck’s been teaching lately about the founding fathers is simply stunning. He found these writings that said there was a pattern to taking America down.

1. Destroy our love of the founding fathers. This was easy, the left simply stopped teaching about it in school.

2. Stop using the Constitutuion. This was also easy .. they stopped teaching about it in school .. and instead used situational ethics and the constant mantra that the Constitution was OLD, needed to change or evolve.

3. Demonize your opponents to #1 and #2. This is in full swing now.

Interesting .. huh ..?? That’s when Beck started having “Founders’ Fridays”. Every Friday on his show, he’s featuring a founding father, and he has on authors of books about the founder. It’s been so interesting - even though I was taught all this in school - the refresher is good for us all.

Then, some of his other shows were about “Crime, Inc.” - how the people connected to Obama (and Obama himself) have all invested in the “cap and tax” legislation and plan to have it make them all billionaires, while giving them complete control over all of America. This includes all the radicals which Obama has been running with for years. The 60’s generation has kept their promise .. to totally transform America.

I was left with my mouth hanging open every program.

So, put aside Beck’s new-found distaste for war and focus on the criminals in our govt who are going to make our life a living hell.

It’s becoming readily apparent that unless the GOP takes over the House and Senate, America is going to be destroyed.

I hope you have better luck than I do saving his programs. I save them to my DVR, and then suddenly they just disappear. I’ve been communicating with TWC about it .. but they don’t seem too disturbed.

What’s really frustrating, I have other programs as long ago as 4/21 .. and they’re still there .. only the Beck programs disappear.

I’m going to contact them again - and let them know that what they tried did not work. I want a new DVR.

What bothers me is this: Is there somebody purposfully erasing those programs ..?? It just seems weird that Beck is the only program I can’t seem to keep.
