So who and what's behind the "Peace Flotilla?"

‘[Remember] Khaybar, Khaybar, oh Jews! The army of Muhammad will return!’

Participants chanted Islamic battle cry invoking killing of Jews and called for Martyrdom

On the day before the Gaza flotilla confronted the Israeli navy, Al-Jazeera TV documented the pre-battle atmosphere created by men on board the flotilla, who chanted a well-known Islamic battle cry invoking the killing and defeat of Jews in battle:

Here is the core tragedy—there appears to be no one in power in America or Israel who understands what this war cry means. It goes to the heart of the matter—the doctrine of political Islam that comes from the Koran and Mohammed. It was 1400 years ago that Mohammed crushed the last of the free Jews in Arabia at Khaybar. It was 1400 years ago that Muslims declared war on the Jews and enslaved, exiled, murdered, raped and ethnically cleansed them. The first judenrein territory was Khaybar.

The real offense of Israel is that it is not a dhimmi state, subservient to Islam. The Jews’ very existence in the middle of the Islamic world is the core of the problem.

Although Islam has a special hatred of the Jews, based upon Mohammed’s doctrine, if every Jew in Israel were replaced by a Hindu, nothing would change. How do we know this? Look to Kashmir in India where the same battle between political Islam and kafirs (non-Muslims) is being waged.

The word Khaybar goes to the DNA of the war between Islam and all kafirs, particularly the Jews. The outcome, based upon previous reruns, is that bluster and defense will go back and forth and the real reason for the war will go unnoticed, except for all Muslims. The reason that 1.5 billion Muslims can keep a secret is that they can yell it at the top of their voices and no one can hear. More>>

Jawa Report:

“Peace protesters” and “humanitarian activists” at work

Andrew Bolt

“peace protesters” on board the Mavi Marmara prepare to welcome Israeli soldiers.

The “humanitarian activists” stun the soldiers with their kindness.

The “humanitarian activists” stun the soldiers with their kindness.

But, oddly enough, the “aid” they were bringing to the starving of Gaza seems not wanted by those victims of Zionist oppression:

Israel has attempted to deliver humanitarian aid from an international flotilla to Gaza, but Hamas – which controls the territory – has refused to accept the cargo, the Israel Defense Forces said Wednesday.

Palestinian sources confirmed that trucks that arrived from Israel at the Rafah terminal at the Israel-Gaza border were barred from delivering the aid.

And perhaps there’s more to the “peace activists” on the Mavi Marmara, too, as I explained yesterday:

Media reports in Ankara on Wednesday revealed that three out of the four Turkish citizens that were killed during the raid declared their wishes to become shahids (martyrs). Another Dutch report claimed a Dutch activist, who was arrested by the IDF is suspected of being a senior Hamas operative.

In an interview with Turkish newspaper Haber, the family members of Ali Khaider Benginin (39), resident of east Turkey’s Kurdistan region, revealed their relative’s true intentions.

“I am going to be a shahid; I dreamt I will become a shahid – I saw in a dream that I will be killed,” Benginin told his family before leaving for the sail.

In the latest peace boat developments, three Australian women who were aboard the fauxtilla are set to be deported from Israel. Among them is Sydney Morning Herald photographer Kate Geraghty.

Quality Journalism from  Bob Ellis:

Bibi thinks it will be over quickly but it will not. He has arrested Paul McGeough and silenced him but Paul will speak of what he saw if he is not killed. If he is killed, or tortured, and his video images confiscated it will prove a diplomatic difficulty. And if Paul comes home he will write of it.
