Israel stops Women’s Boat to Gaza

The Israeli Navy has intercepted the Women's Boat to Gaza bout 35 nautical miles from the coast of the besieged Strip

UPDATE:

Women’s boat to Gaza has released pre-recorded SOS messages by activists on board, as communication has been lost with the Zaytouna boat suggesting it has been intercepted by the Israeli Navy.

Watch all the SOS Videos here.

UPDATE:

The Israeli Navy has intercepted the Women’s Boat to Gaza bout 35 nautical miles from the coast of the besieged Strip, Haaretz newspaper reported.

“According to a high-ranking officer, passengers on board the Zaytouna-Olivia offered no resistance when the troops took over the boat. The boat was redirected to the Israeli port city of Ashdod,” the paper said.

Communication with the Women’s Boat to Gaza has ceased leading media organisations and activists to believe Israel is jamming signal to the boat.

On it’s website, the group said: “At 1558 (CEST) on 5 October, we lost contact again with the Zaytouna-Oliva and presume that the Israeli Occupation Navy has surrounded it in International Waters (latest recorded position: Lat+31.906033 Lon+33.757630) and has forced it off its course to Gaza.”

Al Jazeera, which has a journalist and camerawoman aboard the Zaytouna, said it has been unable to reach its correspondent for over an hour leading it to believe Israel has jammed signal to boat.

According to tweets from the Women’s Boat to Gaza, the boat has been surrounded by the Israeli Navy and it is expected that the Captain, US Army Colonel Ann Wright, will be urged to turn the Zaytouna around before she enters Gaza’s Israeli occupied water and risks being intercepted by the navy and its crew detained.

The Zaytouna is currently in international waters with a crew of 13 international activists on board.

Thousands of Gazans have been waving Palestinian flags along the beach in preparation for the Zaytouna’s arrival and in solidarity with the peace activists who hoped to break the decade-long blockade on the Strip and breathe hope to those living in the enclave.

The Israeli Navy is expected to lead the Zaytouna to the port of Ashdod, north of the Gaza Strip, where the women will be handed over to authorities, questioned and deported.

The Israeli army has refused to comment on the reports saying a statement will be released in due course.

In 2010 a similar flotilla was intercepted by Israeli forces resulting in the killing of ten Turkish and American activists.

Earlier today, the group behind the flotilla released a public statement which said:

We as signatories are deeply concerned that these peaceful women activists on board the Zaytouna and their non-violent mission to break the illegal Israeli blockade, face such an unprovoked and unwarranted threat. The WBG is a solidarity mission to occupied Gaza and has no intention of entering Israel illegally.

Going on to warn of the possibility of violent assault by Israeli forces:

This humanitarian mission is in danger of being attacked, unless the international community, including the ANC-led government, steps in to prevent Israel from carrying out such crimes against humanity, crimes which it frequently commits with complete impunity.

Meet the women on-board the Zaytouna

      Anti-Semitic…..anti-semitic forsooth?

      At least they dare to fight for the truth rather than just sit in front of a computer as a keyboard warrior like you..

      • Lonny

        What’s their truth? That they hate Jews?

    • Lloyd Kennedy

      Aw diddums! Didn’t you have a better card to play than the “anti-Semitic” canard? Go and play with your Lego.

      • Aaron Martin

        so the hamas charter does not specifically call for the death of all jews…actually says to kill the last jew alive. no it does not say israeli.

        you should go play with lego Lloyd as the computer you are playing with was basically invented in Israel! if you are going to BDS then go all the way…ditch your israeli invented cell phone while you are at it!

          1- Who expelled Jews 109 times from Europe?
          2- Who performed dozens of pogroms on Jews?
          3- Who performed the ‘holocaust’?
          Not Arabs! Not Muslims! Right?
          That was done by Christian Europe. Right?

          • Barry

            Palestinians have been expelled en masse from Saudi, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Libya, and Kuwait. I guess they are pretty despicable too.

            ZIONISM = COLONIALISM

            Jabotinsky : ” “A voluntary reconciliation with the Arabs is out of the question either now or in the future. If you wish to colonize a land in which people are already living, you must provide a garrison for the land, or find some rich man or benefactor who will provide a garrison on your behalf. Or else-or else, give up your colonization, for without an armed force which will render physically impossible any attempt to destroy or prevent this colonization, colonization is impossible, not difficult, not dangerous, but IMPOSSIBLE!… Zionism is a colonization adventure and therefore it stands or falls by the question of armed force. It is important… to speak Hebrew, but, unfortunately, it is even more important to be able to shoot – or else I am through with playing at colonizing.” Vladimir Jabotinsky, founder of Revisionist Zionism (precursor of Likud), The Iron Wall, 1923 “

            One tiny country where Jews have lived for 3500 years.

            21 Arab countries.

            57 Islamic countries in Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Asia…

            But this dumb TW@T says the Jews are the colonialists!

          • Lonny

            There’s the answer to your question, tw@t. Jews were expelled from Europe because they weren’t European. They were Middle Eastern. How does that justify your racism?

        • Francie D

          Israel did not invent the cell phone or the computer. Vinod
          Dham pentium chip inventor, not israeli, not
          Jewish and not in Israel.
          Martin Cooper invented the cell phone in the US not Israeli.

      • Barry

        Why would he possibly bring up Jew hatred when they are targeting the only Jewish country on earth; the only country that is being boycotted on an international level; all while its Arab citizens have equal rights; and it treats a hostile “occupied” population with more gentleness than any Arab nation would deal with its advesaries (see Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, etc.).
        Yeah, crazy to bring up Jew hatred, Lloyd. Just nuts.

      • Lonny

        Awwww…. dipstick… don’t you have a better comment to make than to try to pretend the anti-Semite observation isn’t credible?

    • Keramat Angkasa Infiniti

  • Gettingby

    Turn them over to ISIS and let them learn through hands on experience how demented their beliefs are.

    • Keramat Angkasa Infiniti

      turn to ISIS? you mean to say ISIS and Israel got some special connection?

        Sarcasm or stupidity?

  • Keramat Angkasa Infiniti

    Coward Israeli pig

    • caliroxanne

      No, the real cowards are the ones on the boat. If they really cared about human rights, they should try this stunt in Syria or Iran.

      • Helen4Yemen

        The Syrians and the Iranians are on their own land.
        The Euro-Ashkenazi is not!
        Big difference! NO?

      • Keramat Angkasa Infiniti

        WBG is an attempt to BREAK THE SIEGE. Is there even any siege on Iran or Syria? Please refrain yourself from being stupid.

        • caliroxanne

          There is no siege. Egypt also blocks access to Gaza, but these people on these boats know that if confronted by Egypt, the consequences would be far more severe. Anyway, this doesn’t have anything to do with concern for human rights, Palestinians or whatever nonsense they claim; it’s about Jew hatred and Israel bashing. With so much Muslim-on Muslim conflict in the region where Muslims suffer imminseley at the hands of their fellow Muslims, it’s interesting to me that there is silence from you and your friends on this. I guess Muslim lives matter only when there is an opportunity to attack Israel.

      • Adnin

        Caliroxanne, u must be really dumb. smh

    • Name-calling! You just lost the argument.

    • Lonny

      Oh, look at who just got done sucking on an Israeli and is all mad that the Israeli didn’t throw him a shekel.

  • hadin

    PR stunt, and it failed. No major new sites reporting on this, not even RT is. This will pass unnoticed by anyone. Pointless.

    • George Haddad

      The fact that you and others have taken time to comment, is testament to your statement being defeated. Perhaps you should simply shut up?

      • Lonny

        Oh… just because one person on this small article makes a comment means the entire world is aware of this little PR stunt, eh?

        • George Haddad

          I am glad we agree on one thing. This is a small article. But this now makes 2 out of over 70 of you who have read, understood (or tried to understand as is in your case) and contributed to this article. Please do continue contributing as it helps support this story, it also increases on page seo and drives more traffic to this page; or perhaps you could show some dignity and shut up? Imagine the impact of a larger story… actually don’t that might kill your little heartless soul….

          • Lonny

            What a moron. 2 out of 70 means the whole world is as aware of this small bit of news as they are of the Russian actions in Syria or something.

            Perhaps you can show that you are aware of your own circumstances and go see a gastro-enterologist to have your head surgically extracted. 70 people suddenly drove this page to the top of Google searches, eh, halfwit?

          • George Haddad

            The absolute fact remains that you and I have taken time to comment on this story. Therefore this ‘small article’ as you put it, clearly is important to you and evidently others to read and comment upon.

            Secondly, thank you for taking further time to offer medial advice.. I actually suffer from a condition against heartless little souls… often instigated by zionists, racists and halfwits who tend to use the term ‘halfwit’.

          • Lonny

            The absolute fact remains is that you are an idiot trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.

            This is a small article. See if you can find some bigger ones on it instead of lying through those ludicrous teeth of yours about SEO beefing up its rankings. Show us how there is a groundswell of viewers stoking the flames of this article and causing an international pandemonium.

            And noticing that this is a small article makes me someone with common sense, not someone without a heart. So, let’s consider your condition of being a brainless liar. And thank you for the “I know you are but what am I?” response, halfwit… it demonstrates that you have the intellectual capacity of a 3-year-old.

          • George Haddad

            Since your last comment, an extra 500+ people have shared this page.

            Rather than ‘the entire world’ being made ‘aware of this little PR stunt’; surely this must be down to your unsubstantiated slander and wealth of ‘common sense’ which can be read in every nuance of every comment you have made on this page and others.

            Thank you Lonny.

          • Lonny

            Woo hoo!!!!!

            500 people! Sounds so close to the MILLIONS it would take to make it a major news story. AT the 7000/day rate, when do you think that would be? Oh, wait, think it will stay at 7000/day?

            I work with companies which get 500 shares in a few minutes, dummy… for stories which aren’t major news stories.

            You think repeating your stupidity about shares, SEO, and this not being a minor news story is “nuanced” and “substantiated”? What a clown.

          • George Haddad

            There is no expectation for Zionist owned media to cover such a stories. Unfortunately their power to some extent fails when it comes to the internet. It would not surprise me however if they paid you and others to write the wealth of ‘common sense’ on these stories that you do.

            Still Lonny, it is clear to me that people such as yourself are hired by Zionist companies to sell their heartless little souls.

            Please keep up the good work and you may be promoted to writing your own stories soon.

          • Lonny

            What a complete moron. “Zionist owned media.” Do they own the media throughout Europe and Asia as well? Was Ted Turner a Jew?

            It doesn’t surprise me that you drum up insults based on ethnic slurs… a true sign of having a low IQ. Your lack of common sense means that I’m being paid? Seriously?

            It is clear to me that you truly are a moron… but not just any moron, one who’s susceptible to extreme hallucinations. You should read up on some of the studies which were conducted which prove that racists have lower IQs than non-racists.

            Keep being a gibbering halfwit. It’s entertaining.

          • Pollyharvey

            Your abuse of someone who has a different opinion to you is appalling. Shame on you!

          • Lonny

            Oh… I have a different opinion than you, and you’re abusing me by trying to shame me, eh, hypocritical idiot?

            I insult racists, STUPID.

The only thing, again, you are playing Jenga with is the south side of your own alimentary canal, with another difference being, you are inserting your cranium instead of removing blocks.

  • caliroxanne

    If Israel really is the genocidal monster they claim it is, all the
    Jew-hating Europeans should send many of these ships to Israel to
    “rescue” the Palestinians and bring them to safety back in Europe. Perhaps
    Sweden should take the lead in this. If these fools truly cared about
    human rights, Israel is the last place in the region they should be
    going!

    • Helen4Yemen

      Don’t you think the most appropriate thing to do would be for Europe to RETRIEVE its own Euro-Jews that it dumped on Arab land as a ‘Final Solution’?

      • caliroxanne

        Sorry, but the Jews have been there long before Islam was invented. Israel is and always has been the Jewish homeland.

        • Helen4Yemen

          True or false:

          1- Sorry, but the Ashkenazi Jews have been there long before Islam was invented.

          2- Israel is and always has been the AshkenaziJewish homeland.

          • Lonny

            1) Their ancestors were, tw@t.

            2) Absolutely, tw@t. The Jews only have one homeland… Israel.

          • Aer O’Head

            Not to mention that they were hardly the only inhabitants at the time.

          • Lonny

            Not to mention, there were hardly any inhabitants at all in the mid 1800s, and the Ottomans allowed both Jews and Arabs to immigrate. But, I wouldn’t expect a Jew-hating cretin to grasp reality.

          • Helen4Yemen

            The point I was trying to make was that when they say,
            “Jews used to live there…” would be a true statement but
            when you insert the word ‘European’ or’Ashkenazi’ in front of
            the word ‘Jew’, then we know it and they know it to be false.

          • Lonny

            Not false, since the Jews who were in Europe originally came from there and the Europeans also rejected the Jews because they came from there. But why are Jewish immigrants the only people you have problems with, psycho?

            21 Arab countries.

            57 Islamic countries spread over Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Europe….

            1 tiny Jewish country where Jews have lived for 3500 years.

            But the Jews are the “colonialists.” What a moron.

          • Helen4Yemen

            Actually,they were NONE of the inhabitants at that time or ever before the stampede begun to colonize it.

          • Lonny

            So, there’s a stampede of Arabs colonizing Europe right now, right? No problem, right?

      • caliroxanne

        And where is this “Final Solution?” The Palestinian population is growing.

        • Helen4Yemen

          Europe FINALLY performed its ‘Final Solution’ by dumping its own white Ashkenazi Jews that were so hated in Europe on Arab land.
          Yes or no?

          • caliroxanne

            No. Europe has always hated Jews. That hatred escalated to violence during WWII after which the Jews went to their homeland, Israel. Even the koran acknowledges that Israel is for the Jews.

          • Helen4Yemen

            True or false:

            after which the Ashkenazi Jews went to their homeland, Israel

          • Helen4Yemen

            Now you are an expert on the Koran?
            Does the Koran speak of the Ashkenazis?

        • Helen4Yemen

          Why is it the business of foreigners how fast the Palestinian population grows on their own land? Why should a German Jew involve himself in regional matters?

          • Lonny

            Whose land are you on, tw@t?

          • caliroxanne

            I’m not German, nor am I Jewish, but I love Israel and the Jewish people. You claim there is a final solution against Palestinians. How? Where is the genocide? I guess it is the only genocide in history where the supposed targeted population keeps growing as opposed to being annihilated. Why isn’t there any outrage when Muslims kill other Muslims? Do you truly care about Muslims, or do you simply hate Jews?

          • Helen4Yemen

            In your own words, give me one good and valid reason why the German Jew is still in Palestine and not back in his own Germany?

          • Lonny

            Same reason that there are Arabs who immigrated to Europe, you stupid tw@t. The Ottomans allowed Jews to immigrate, and Jews lawfully immigrated there. Why are there 21 Arab countries and you whining about the only Jewish one?

          • caliroxanne

            What is your obsession with the German Jew? Jews are in Israel (no such place as Palestine) because it is their homeland as it has been for thousands of years before Islam was invented, like Italians in Italy, Icelanders in Iceland, Japanese in Japan, etc. In terms of Jews not being in Germany, look back to WWII. Hopefully Trump will win here in America and he will cleanse this great country of the Muslim filth!

          • Helen4Yemen

            But were any European Ashkenazi in Palestine before the stampede begun to colonize it?

    • Keramat Angkasa Infiniti

      Lol. Israel is the main reason for any chaos in the Region. ISIS wont exist if isnt because of Israel and USA

      • caliroxanne

        Actually Islam, not Israel, is the main reason for all the chaos in the world. Nothing to do with the U.S. or Israel. Why is it that everywhere there are Muslims, there are problems?

        • Keramat Angkasa Infiniti

          Let me check. Massacre of native Americans….slavery in United States…disease brought from europe to the land in the west….bombing of hiroshima and nagasaki… nope. No Islam here.

          And no. Americans and its goons is the reason for any problem in this world. Why is it when US attack the country, more problems occured? When US “support” Afghan’s Mujahideen during soviet invasion, Taliban emerge. When US “liberate” Iraq, ISIS emerge. Lol. Stop being fail.

          Good thing they lost in Vietnam. If they won, maybe Vietcong will rules South East Asia today.

          HAHAHAHAHAHA!

          • Lonny

            Let me check… You’re talking about quite some time ago. Look at all the conflicts today… and all the terror attacks in over 50 countries over the last 10 years, and try to blame Jews for it. Lame.

          • Keramat Angkasa Infiniti

            Am I blaming Jews? Where? Are you smoking too much weed?

            Anyone ever notice zionist-lovers are morons? I bet ‘Murican police shooting black people for no reason because Muslim told them to so, right?

          • Lonny

            “Am I blaming Jews?”

            “Israel is the main reason for any chaos in the Region.”

            Yep, moron. That’s you blaming Jews. You think when you blame Israel that you are blaming Arabs or Muslims?

            So, your best insult is to use mine, dippy?

            So, the Jews caused the Muslims to murder one another, stupid?

          • Keramat Angkasa Infiniti

            HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! If hating Israel means hating the Jews, then I guess Naturei Karta aren’t Jewish enough for hating israel as much as I do.

            Learn the difference between nation and religion, schmuck.

          • Lonny

            You ridiculous dumb@$$…. Naturei Karta are a small cult who have a freaky religious reason for their belief. YOU are not a Naturei Karta, so what’s YOUR excuse, moron?

            Learn the difference that Jews are an ethnic group in the context of Israel being a Jewish state, dumbshchiat… There are religious Jews and there are non-religious Jews, IDIOT.

          • Keramat Angkasa Infiniti

            Religious Jews = The Jewish who understand Torah and know Israel shouldnt exist.
            Non-religious Jews = the zionist who killed unarmed children for being Palestinian.

            OK. Hehehehehe.

          • Lonny

            A Jew-hating ahoIe telling Jews that they believe Israel shouldn’t exist? No kidding. Half of the world’s Jews live there and defend it. And that’s where most of the world’s religious Jews live.

            Sorry, ahoIe, you don’t know what Jews believe… but you’re always welcome to open your ignorant piehole again and prove to everyone that you’re a racist slob.

            The jihadi-blower’s best response is, “I know you are but what am I?” You have the mentality of a 3-year-old, you silly little sword swallower.

          • Keramat Angkasa Infiniti

            Damn. The more you reply, the more you show your creepy oral fetish. HAHAHAHAHA!

          • Lonny

            Once again, the jihadi-blower’s best response is: “I know you are but what am I?” Still showing everyone you have the feeble mind of a 3-year-old.

          • Keramat Angkasa Infiniti

            For an “old man”, you sure enjoy your talk with 3 year old. LOL keep on being salty. XD

          • Lonny

            I’m sure you do like it salty, which is why you engage in what I have pointed out. You were too stupid to understand that I noted you have the MENTALITY of a 3-year-old, eh?

          • Keramat Angkasa Infiniti

            Surely the salty one is first who response to my comment just bcoz im hitting them hard with my “anti-semitic” comment. lol. Now we know who is the childsih one.

          • Keramat Angkasa Infiniti

            Surely the salty one is the first who respond to my comment bcoz im hitting them hard with my “anti-zionist” comment. Lol. Now I see which one of us is childish.

          • Lonny

            I’m not arguing about who’s salty. I’m saying that you LIKE the salty ones… particularly when you blow them.

            And once again, your best insult is to immediately take mine and repeat it… proving my point, that your best insults are “I know you are but what am I?” … proving you have the mind of a 3-year-old.

            Now, take one of my insults and immediately puke it back at me… after you’re done swallowing, of course.

      • Lonny

        Anyone ever notice that Jew-haters are morons?

        I bet Saddam attacked and annexed Kuwait because an Israeli Jew told him to do so, right?

    • Aer O’Head

      Entirely bass-ackwards there. Put all the invading Zionists on boats back to Europe and Russia, where they originally came from. They’re the ones who invaded and occupied the lands of a peaceful people! The Zionists have evolved into what they professed to despise … militaristic, fascist, racist Nazis. And not just evolved … they’ve perfected!

      • Lonny

        Well, if you went back to where YOU came from, it would be from someone’s backside, so… you are perfectly welcome to do so.

        Jews didn’t go and occupy the lands of a peaceful people, you silly lunatic. Go grab a dose of reality somewhere.

        • Aer O’Head

          Most of them are Polish and Russian. So WTF are YOU talking about???

          • Lonny

            When are you going to whine about all the Arabs in Europe, you nutty little racist? Most Jews in Israel are actually from the Middle East. You racists are so uninformed about the objects of your racism, that it’s comical. So, when the Ottomans opened up the region to Jewish and Arab immigration in the 1850s, the Jews were supposed to say no, ahoIe?

          • Aer O’Head

            Netanyahu, Poland. Peres, Poland. Ben-Gurion, Poland. Weizman – Poland or German, I forget. Theodor Herzl, Russian …. blah blah blah …

          • Lonny

            Are Jewish immigrants the only immigrants you have problems with, you silly little tw@t? Seems like it. Sounds like you’d be okay with Europeans starting to murder large numbers of Arab immigrants, right?

          • Aer O’Head

            Always trying to deflect attention elsewhere … a favorite ploy of you hasbara types, isn’t it? Okay, let’s talk about immigrants. What’s going on in Syria is Israel’s war … everybody knows that. Don’t you think the Syrians would much rather have stayed home? But no, Israel wants all its neighbors to be weakened and fragmented because this magnifies their own regional hegemony, Did you conveniently forget the Yinon Plan? Clean Break? Yep, all those people fled because of the disease, the cancer, called ZIONISM ….bad for the world but good for the sick monsters who pretend they’re fighting in the name of religion. Yes, Zionism is perhaps the greatest disease ever to strike mankind. And cretins like you are sick, Sick, SICK.

          • Lonny

            There’s no deflection, idiot. You’re whining about where Jews came from. But Jews are the only immigrants you have problems with. Why is that?

            What’s going on in Syria is that Assad started shooting his own civilian population for engaging in public demonstrations against the government, and did so for 3 months before they started fighting back, you Jew-hating ahoIe.

            Sick is you blaming Jews for what Assad started, moron.

          • Aer O’Head

            Assad didn’t start it at all. The U.S. did … on Israel’s behalf. Just like Iraq. Just like Libya. Read The Yinon Plan and Clean Break, moron. You are utterly fact-deficient.

          • Lonny

            Yes, moron, he did. The public demonstrated for 3 months, as he was firing at their demonstrations, taking several hundred of them away into torture chambers… dropping off dead children into their villages to intimidate the villages, and finally the public, at large, got sick of it and started taking up arms. Israel had nothing to do with it, IDIOT.

          • Aer O’Head

            Keep talking. I’m sure everybody reading this thread is laughing their butts off at your childish naivete. Either naivete of the facts of the situation, or at your naivete thinking you can get other people to believe your silly nonsense.

          • Lonny

            I’m sure everyone who actually followed the current events at the time… who is aware of the public demonstrations… how Assad’s forces were firing at the demonstrators with sniper rifles… how villagers disappeared and came back dead with signs of torture to intimidate the people… are laughing their @$$e$ off at how you are denying that those things actually happened.

            You might find this on CNN from June, 2011, MORON….

            _________

            (CNN) — A second Syrian teenager has been returned to his parents — lifeless, battered and, according to activists, a victim of torture.

            A video released Thursday by activists includes a woman wailing as a body is unwrapped at the hospital in Daraa.

            “My son, it’s my son,” the voice cries out. “This scar here, I swear its my son, I stitched this cut on him when he was little.”

            The boy was identified as Tamer Mohammed al Sharey, 15, who disappeared after an April 29 demonstration.

            He was from the same village as Hamza Ali al-Khateeb, 13. Hamza’s killing has enraged, mobilized and emboldened the country’s opposition movement. Tamer was at the same demonstration Hamza attended, according to activists.

            Tamer’s body was one of 14, including those of other children, that arrived at the hospital.

            ____________

            Keep “laughing” oaf. It’s not anyone else’s fault that you are so uninformed except for your own.

          • Lonny

            Sorry, stupid. Some conspirIDIOCY theorist’s opinion doesn’t change the cold, hard news. How did Israel get the people of Syria to attend public demonstrations in spite of being shot by their own government, moron?

          • Aer O’Head

            EXACTLY, Which is why your ignorance and naivete is utterly meaningless in a serious discussion. All you’ve got is opinion, and that’s mostly just unfounded hogwash.

          • Lonny

            So, Israel did what? Went into the Syrian public’s televisions and hypnotized them to demonstrate against their own government? And Israel also caused the Syrian government to shoot its own people in your demented little feeble mind? Moron.

          • Aer O’Head

            Still playing fast and loose with the epithet MORON, not realizing how well it applies to you. I can’t help it if you’re uninformed and lack logical faculties. Go to school, little boy, read a serious book. As a troll, you’re not making it simply because you’re so ignorant of real life. The information is out there, sonny …. you need to be able to understand it and grasp it. Apparently, that’s beyond your capabilities at this point in your life. Let the adults talk, you might learn something.

            P.S. I think I’m done with you. You have NOTHING to offer in this discussion … other than calling people names. As I said, as a troll, you flunk. Pathetically

          • Lonny

            Still talking to a moron, so, I’m pointing out that fact.

            And your best insult is what? “I know you are but what am I?” Yep. You’re the moron alright… and have the emotional age of a 3-year-old.

            So, you think “logically,” that Israel was able to convince thousands of Syrians to demonstrate against their government… and the Syrian government to shoot them with sniper rifles for a few months, eh?

            Where’s the logic in that, moron?

            What are you assuming that people are supposed to grasp? That you hate Jews so much you’ve turned into a complete fool with no grasp on reality?

          • Lonny

            Sorry, dingleberry. Most of them are from the Middle East. You do know that most of them were from the nearly 1 million Jews who were expelled from Arab countries in the 1940s and 1950s, and then from Iran in the 1970s, right? Maybe you should get an education about things before you show your ignorance on the internet.

  • Helen4Yemen

    Anyone please come forward and give me one good and valid reason for the Euro-Ashkenazi Jew to still linger on stolen Arab land while he no longer faces any persecution on his own homeland in Europe?

    • Barry

      The same reason you are allowed to linger in the West, sucking up benefits and fouling its water.

      • Helen4Yemen

        You are repeating the same words of Hitler said about you?

        • Lonny

          He’s actually repeating the same racism YOU are saying, you dumb tw@t.

    • Lonny

      Tw@t can’t name one fraction of a second at any point in history when the land belonged to Palestinian Arabs. Why is tw@t lingering on Jewish websites? Why are there millions of Arabs in Europe?

    • neluroman

      Yes, I can. First off, Palestine is not Arab land, at least it is Arab land as India ‘s or Spania’s land is Arab. In all these cases Arabs conquered the land by sword and lost it by sword, in the case of India and Spain, and partially by sword in the case of Palestine, where a United Nations’ partition of Palestine between Arabs and Jews was a decisive factor in modern Israel apparition on world’s map. Before the end of WWI almost the entire Arabian Peninsula was Ottoman, non- Arabic. In the wake of Ottoman Empire collapse this region became some sort of “the land of no one,” with many groups of people reclaiming a part of this land as their own country. Among these large groups of people reclaiming a country in this land were Jews too. One of the main criteria for as a group of people to get their own country in the region was as they to have innabited uninterruptedly in this land for a few hundreds of years. And simply, Jews met this criterium, 110%.Therefore, the creation of Israel didn’t depend on whether Ashkenazi are Jews or not, but on other criteria one of which I mentioned above. And let me make it clear once for ever. It is only upon Jews themselves to decide who is Jew and who is not. It is not my business, your business or someone else non-Jew business. If they say that Ashkenazi are Jews, so be, and let’s move on.

  • Helen4Yemen

    ANTI-SEMITISM = ANTI=ASHKENAZISM

    AntiSemitism Here is one defined by an online dictionary:

    “Antisemitism is prejudice against, hatred of, or discrimination against Jews as an ethnic, religious, or racial group”

    See, see, the prejudice against Jews is supposed to be out of the blue, for no reason at all, the Jew is just minding his business and the gentile gets overcome with hatred – out of the blue, right? And what is the name of the ethnicity or race that ‘Jews’ claim to be? But when you ask ‘the Jews’ what race or ethnicity they belong to, you will never get an answer, they always run away from answering it simply because the only name of the ethnicity and race that they have in mind is: “Jewish”. But if they openly admitted to belonging to ‘the Jewish race” they know that they would be running smack into uncomfortable territory, because someone like me who is a Semite will ask how a Nigerian, Yemeni, Chinese, Russian Jews could all be the same race? Gotcha!

    • caliroxanne

      You must be the genius in your family. I’m not sure what you’re trying to say. I don’t know any Jews who say that there is a Jewish race. The Jewish race term is one that white supremacists throw around a lot, though. Islam is not a race either. There are Muslims of all races. There are Christians of all races.

      • Helen4Yemen

        What race is the German Jew?

        • caliroxanne

          I’m sure you are going to say that a German Jew’s race is Jewish, but they would say their race is Caucasian.

          • Helen4Yemen

            Yes and so is the race of the European Jew.

        • Barry

          Overwhelming majority of German Jews are from ex Soviets, a large number from Asian republics, and a substantial number from Iran (came post WW2 for work).
          German Jews in Israel have married with Mizrachim to such an extent that their nickname of Yekke is used with other nations, like YekkeYemeni.
          I know a lot of Yemeni Jews and almost everyone is married to Ashkenazim. I know a couple of Yemeni Muslims and they are very happy to be out of that hellhole.

          I know many Jewish people and they say that Judaism is their religion. The only time I’ve ever heard the term “the Jewish race” was from neo-nazi white supremacists, never from a Jew.

            Although Judaism is a religion, not a race, you clearly think otherwise, and attempting to reason with you is an exercise in futility. Trying to reason with you is like trying to play chess with a pigeon; it knocks the pieces over,
            craps on the board, and flies back to its flock to claim victory.

            3- What race is the Chinese Jew? Chinese
            4- What race is the Yemeni Jew? Yemeni

    Malcolm-X: ” Another thing to think of–in the 20th Century, the Christian Church has given us two heresies: fascism and communism. Where did fascism start? Where’s the second-largest Communist party outside of Russia? The answer to both is Italy. Where is the Vatican? But let’s not forget the Jew. Anybody that gives even a just criticism of the Jew is instantly labeled anti-Semite. The Jew cries louder than anybody else if anybody criticizes him. You can tell the truth about any minority in America, but make a true observation about the Jew, and if it doesn’t pat him on the back, then he uses his grip on the news media to label you anti-Semite.”– May, 1963

    Great job, ladies. You could have shipped the “relief” supplies along with the 500 or so trucks that enter Gaza daily from Israel (and none from Egypt). Nice statement. Did a whole lot.

  • Lonny

    Moron’s best insult turns out to be, “I know you are but what am I?” Why is that not surprising?

    You can’t erase the fact that the Syrian public started rebelling… Israel didn’t cause them to rebel, and Israel didn’t cause Assad to order that they be fired upon and kidnapped and tortured to death.

  • Lonny

    I’m sure everyone knows you’re a complete idiot for insisting that Israel caused the Syrian revolution.

    How did Israel compel the Syrian public to go and demonstrate in spite of being fired upon by snipers? Israel must offer some great falafels or something, eh?

  • Lonny

    I guess you are an idiot who thinks that if you quote from one tiny group, it justifies your own anti-Semitism.

    They have their own reason for making their claim… that the Messiah hasn’t arrived yet. However, the rest of the Jews don’t make that interpretation, ahoIe. Now, since you personally hate Jews, why are you using the Naturei Karta to justify your Jew-hate? You’re not a Naturei Karta, so you have other reasons. And there are only really 2 reasons… 1) Very low IQ… 2) Blatant racism.
