Zionist aggression has backfired, as it had to and will again and again and again until they quit forever and give up the wicked, land-grabbing, racist, anti-God ideology that is the Zionism of Theodor Herzl and Ze'ev Jabatinsky, et al.
Betty Molchany: So far, Tom, it has not backfired. They are getting full support in the Congress and the Administration. They have hidden tapes, destroyed passenger's videos and computers, as they cut off lines of communication from the ships so that there could be no report of what was happening except some coverage by Al Jazeera.
Well, Betty, I disagree for the reasons I've given before. Perhaps you'll get more out of hearing some different voices.
Claire Short nails it in this video (took the words right out of my mouth in many respects):
George Galloway also echoes much the same view in this speech in Tempe, Arizona:
I was thinking about your position, and I liken it to the abortion foe who says he or she can't require anti-abortion legislation. You are a pacifist but can't require Hamas to employ non-violence. Well, I don't coerce anyone to use non-violence. I just recommend it and defend it.
Speaking of Hamas, in the 2nd part of his interview with senior Hamas leader, Usamah Hamdan, Paul Jay brought out of Hamas's position that Hamas is open to the non-violent approach as a consideration. Fatah has attempted to adopt it in large measure, but Fatah is caving in on the two-state solution. However, Hamas wants Palestine back, pre-Zionist takeover. I believe the one-state option is the best of the mundane options.
Lastly, the White House (Barack Obama) is under immense pressure (more than at any other time in the history of the post-Truman Presidency) to not completely give in to the Zionists. He has already had to go along with Turkey in the Security Council much more than that to which the US is accustomed. NATO is going to be even more critical in the near term.
Watch how Israel will have to handle the Rachel Corrie with kid gloves and continually relax the siege, which won't appease Hamas or Turkey by the way, nor should it.
Hamas is going to have to take a page from Sinn FÃ©in's book, but apparently, Hamas wants to hold out for more.
Are you so upset with the Zionists that you want to see them get their comeuppance by violent means? If so, I can't go along with you on that.
The reason why, one of many reasons why, Jesus's teachings resonate with me is because he made clear that by our own standards, no adult is undeserving of "punishment" and that it is hypocritical to call for evil, wrath, or whatever term you wish to apply here. Punishing the Zionists is what the Zionists have done to the Palestinians. As to the purity of the Palestinians, from God's perspective and from most of their own (the Muslims and Christians among them), they are not pure or perfect. Consequently, it takes forgiveness and mercy to relieve them of punishment, pain, suffering, etc. This is what they must show to the Zionists to gain the upper moral hand, which as I mentioned in my last comment reply to you, is the thing the Zionists fear most: not measuring up and with everyone knowing it.
It's a good thing to come to realize if the object is to clean up and fly right.
The Babylonian Talmudists worked overtime conjuring up some of the most ridiculous, convoluted, wholly rationalized concepts in order to "trick" themselves into believing that the character flaws they didn't want to overcome were actually sanctioned by reason of superiority, even over God in some cases (nothing more arrogant coming out from an inferiority complex than that).
This is what they don't want to come out where they will have no choice but to face it.
