UPDATE: And now… Israel Cracks Down on Children’s Theater… yes, children’s theater folks.
When it comes to defending the Jewish State against unarmed civilians or peace activists, the Israeli military stands at the top of the dung heap in not only their ability to mount such operations but also in their skill to spin them afterward as “heroic”.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement congratulating troops for seizing the ship he said was involved in “a demonstration of hypocrisy” and support for Hamas, and said Israel’s actions were in accordance with international law. Reuters
Rushing out to deliver his statement, Bibi was full of pride this morning. His devoted army of Jews went forward in the night with all the technology ‘Merika! could give them and put it all to use against this band of murderous thugs.
What Bibi should have said was:
“Not since Kent State have so many heavily armed men taught such a valuable lesson to so few unarmed peaceniks!”
That at least would have been a bit more honest and in keeping with the spirit of the moment.
