'We can't win on this one in terms of PR,' Yigal Palmor, a foreign ministry spokesman, said.
'If we let them throw egg at us, we appear stupid with egg on our face. If we try to prevent them by force, we appear as brutes.'"
That's right! You lose just as you must because your hearts are full of darkness and not light!
The Freedom Flotilla is not resistance though. The Freedom Flotilla is being resisted by evil. The Freedom Flotilla is the real civil authority. The Zionists are engaged in illegal, violent, civil disobedience. The international law is clear and plain on this matter, and it stands with the Freedom Flotilla. That's the way of it, and there's nothing the wicked, racist, war-criminal, land-thieving Zionists can do to alter it.
The Zionist Regime must and will end. It must and will be displaced by righteousness.
Sayyeda S Ja'fri: Tom, those "brutes" have begun attacks on the boats and have killed 3 and injured over 30....It's the beginning of the end of Israel...this may be a blessing in disguise....God help them. :(
Those dead are truly martyrs for both Islam and Christianity and even the Torah Jews. All the people of faith in the world who love peace and not violence and giving and sharing and not greed and sexual harmlessness and not lewdness and excess and misplaced "lust," know that those people died for peace and love and justice. God will not reject their souls. They may not all end up in the same place together, but they will not be in the proverbial Lake of Fire experiencing pain and suffering for eternity. They will receive the standard for which they gave up the last measure of devotion. They died for their friends. They actually went to the cross in a certain sense regardless of their religions or spiritual beliefs.
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." – Jesus Christ (John 15:13)
Sayyeda S Ja'fri: Beautiful.
I wrote the above before I learned that some had fought back with any violence. That's the difference between the Gospel and Qur'an though. Of course, we don't yet know who died and whether any of the dead actually had fought back. Those who died without fighting and wouldn't have fought back regardless, go to a special place.
