"Violent" Aid Flotilla
Rev. Ted Pike
30 May 2010
flotilla of ten ships is bringing 10,000 tons of supplies to the
people of Gaza. Scheduled to arrive Sunday, the relief vessels bristle
with dozens of parliamentarians and public officials among the 800
passengers from Turkey, Greece, Cyprus, Sweden and Ireland. They
are determined to break Israel's oppressive sea embargo and land
their supplies at Gaza. Israel has said that if they come to Ashdod
(south of Gaza), Israel will distribute the relief in Gaza. But
these floating good Samaritans are resolved to end the embargo and
help bring freedom the Gazans. Israel says it will use "limited"
force to keep them from doing so.

's Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman says, "The aid convoy
is violent propaganda against Israel, and Israel will not allow
its sovereignty to be threatened in any way, in any place - land,
air, or sea. There is no humanitarian crisis in the Gaza strip.
Despite Hamas' war crimes against Israeli citizens and the thousands
of rockets fired at Israel's towns, Israel continues to respond
in the most humane way possible."
1948, terror forces of the emergent state of Israel violently drove
800,000 Palestinians from their homes and businesses into shantytown
concentration camps in Lebanon, the West Bank, and Gaza. (See, Israel's
Founding: Miracle or Land Grab?) They did this to frustrate
imminent implementation of the United Nations’ plan to partition
Palestine into Jewish and Palestinian states. Since then, Israel's
policy has been to keep the descendants of such supremely wronged
and disenfranchised refugees in poverty so they can never ascend
to the autonomy promised by the Balfour Declaration in 1917 and
the United Nations more than 60 years ago.
refugees in Gaza have been particularly defiant. They have launched
repeated intifadas. As punishment, Gaza has been under economic
blockade for the past four years. Since Israel's 2008 invasion,
Israel has persevered in keeping the people of Gaza under harsh
military, economic, and human rights restrictions.
argues that if it allows Gazans to become economically prosperous
and politically ambitious, they will elevate Hamas to lead a Palestinian
micro-state within the Jewish state - one run by "terrorists"
(i.e. those who demand that Israel return the ancestral lands it
stole from their grandparents in 1948). Thus Israel continues its
hard line policy of keeping the people of Gaza existing under the
misery of third-world poverty - while it flourishes as an economic
leader and high-tech innovator.
however, the conscience of the world is erupting against Israel's
incarceration of 1.5 million Gazans, who are inmates in the world's
largest prison. Israel 's free-speaking newspaper, Haaretz,
confirms that Israel may be damaging itself more than the Gazans:
'Ships adorned with banners and Palestinian flags in support
of Gaza Strip residents, laden with consumer goods for a population
that has been under siege for about four years, are threatening
Israel. The Israeli government's response and its preparations
to block the "peace flotilla" give the impression that
Israel, not Gaza, is under a brutal siege. Israel is finding it
increasingly difficult to explain the rationale behind the blockade
to the rest of the world…. Moreover, the suffering that
Israel was causing 1.5 million people for this purpose is not
only inhuman, but extremely detrimental to Israel's status around
the world….Israeli goods are being boycotted while world
public opinion no longer accepts the siege. A number of people,
including diplomats and public figures, taking part in the Gaza-bound
aid flotilla, clearly shows that. Israel argues that there is
no hunger in Gaza and that vital products enter the Strip regularly.
Israel even said it was prepared to deliver the boat's content
to the Gaza Strip…. If so, this indicates that Israel is
not opposed to the aid itself, but to the demonstration of support
for Gaza's people. However, this show of support could have been
prevented from the outset had Israel lifted the pointless blockade
and allowed Gazans to live normal lives.' ("A
Blockade on Israel," May 28, 2010)
in Israel show continued overwhelming support for the blockade of
Gaza. The flotilla is a rebuke to the callousness of Israel and
its citizens. The very fact that such a multi-national effort is
necessary and the government of Israel portrays this mercy mission
as "violent" should tell us something about the heartlessness
of a regime which the American government —and most American

those new to the hate bill controversy that is the topic of most
of Rev. Pike's work, please link to the following articles:

earlier on this same page I comment:
Rev Ted Pike is completely independent from Captain May and myself
in terms of his political and religious views, the threats we
address all stem from the same corrupt power elite. I mention
in my concluding remarks below that this elite “would mobilize
us into domestic tyranny and foreign wars, while distracting us
from economic depression and the groups that brought it about.”
is the real problem, not the lack of more “hate crime”
laws. If anything, we need even more freedom of speech to speak
truth to power, sort out our problems, and develop peaceful strategies
to handle high level malefactors. This is why we urgently need
for members of Congress to not only take a principled stand and
stop all hate crime legislative initiatives, but to also roll
back all the existing hate crime laws currently on the books.
crime laws actually pose a major national security threat. They
condition Americans to feel that certain types of thought are inherently
immoral or illegal, even if they do not result in any form of violence
or infringement on the rights of others.
our articles related to false flag attacks, Capt.
Eric H. May and I have discussed strong evidence that Mossad-CIA
was behind 9-11, the mere "thought" of which would some
day be outlawed once hate crime oversight bureaucracies become firmly
implanted in America. We can expect government hate crime overwatch
entities to experience the usual cancerous growth and abuse of power

described in his classic book Why
Government Doesn't Work.
