The point of the blockade crashers was exactly this – a no win situation for Israel.
1. If Israel keeps them offshore, the press is bad because the “peace activists” (who video shows had stun grenades and other weapons and used them to attack) will be described by the press as just want to help the terrorist organization who has as its charter the destruction of Israel.
2. Let them in, weapons get to the terrorists and the terrorists are emboldened.
3. Try to board and be attacked (update: see video below) and see how it escalates.
No matter what, Israel lost – which was the point of the challenges to the blockade – and the world press will only look superficially at the situation and buy the BS that is being sold them without looking at the reasons and ramifications. And even if 99% of the idiots on the boats were innocent they were being used by the 1%. Nukes and other WMDs surround Israel and Israel is supposed to let the terrorist supporters in or get closer?
The world will eventually pay for lack of stability and vision. Neville Chamberlain should have taught us the folly of appeasement.
“Washington has told Moscow that Russian help in resolving Iran’s nuclear program would make its missile shield plans for Europe unnecessary” – March 2, 2009, 4:16pm, en.rian.ru
We should remember this day when Europe, the United States or elsewhere is hit by a missile that could have been stopped by an anti-missle shield. Never in the course of history has a madman (or madwoman) been stopped by appeasement and backing down from self-defense.
Let us hope we do not come to rue this day any time soon.

“The person on the other side is not evil — they just have a different perspective.” – Chris Mathews, NBC ‘journalist’ (Speech to political science students at the University of Toronto, November 20, 2005)
For anyone who believes that Chris Mathews ever had any credibility his statement Monday should disabused them of that belief. Purposefully killing innocent civilians is evil. It is not a “perspective.” Continue reading Different Perspectives v.s. Evil

MediaMatters.org quotes MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann finding a Family Research Council “flip-flop”. (http://mediamatters.org/items/200504260005). Unfortunately for anyone concerned with facts and truth, Olbermann ignores the ones that get in the way.
The facts missing from the article are quite illustrative of the bias of Olbermann and mediamatters.org. Continue reading MSNBC’s Olbermann’s Errors and Bias

Spain’s Recent Election
The Spanish government is following the French solution to terror: appeasement and surrender. It wasn’t enough that the voters voted their own freedoms away to the socialists, the socialist government now will surrender more freedom to terrorists. Softness encourages bullies and terrorists, and freedom once lost is rarely regained. Continue reading Spain’s Terror Solution – Appeasement and Surrender
