The timing of the Hamas/Hezbollah flotilla of peace

Reader comment on item: "Free Gaza" Flotilla Defeats the Israel Defense Forces

Submitted by M D Anthony (Canada), Jun 1, 2010 at 01:32

The multi ship flotilla was planned several weeks ago to take place on the Memorial day weekend
The ships would have arrived at the Gaza shore on Saturday May 29 - in a direct violation of the Oslo accords

Today media reported that for unexplained reasons the flotilla was delayed two days.
We are told that Israeli soldiers attacked the flotilla killing at least 10 of the peaceful participants.
Netanyahu confidently was to have had a state dinner and News Conference with Canada's prime minister in Ottawa
The dinner and press conference were cancelled and Netanyahu is enroute back to Israel
All of this could just be another Mideast event until you consider the following;

In March word was coming from Whitehouse sources that Obama wants a regime change in Israel.

Netanyahu is shunned by Obama and treated worst than any invited leader had ever been treated while attending the Whitehouse.

A few weeks later Ehud Barak the Israeli defense chief is treated by Obama like a sitting Primeminister when he meets with him.

So who arranged for the delay of the flotilla in order that these events would prevent Netanyahu from making public statements at a joint press conference with Canada's Prime Minister?

Note: Canada's Primeminister is one of the few Leaders in the world with enough cajones to support Israel and with Jerusalem as its capital city.

Up until this event news media was even saying Canada appears to be Israel's last friend.

Ehud Barak gave the O.K for the attack on the flotilla by Israeli forces - why an attack and not a blockade?

Obama made an immediate statement (no dithering here) says he understands why Netanyahu can no longer meet at the White house as previously scheduled for June 2nd

A set up is not rocket science except that like Yitzak Rabin the last one to know is the victim.

J street supporters must love it t times like this when it appears to their minds that the elimination of the embarrassment of a Jewish homeland grows closer.

Worldnet Daily has provided the answer on who with the Whitehouse connections timed the flotilla.

Did all this kind of pull a rug from under Rahm Emanuel? Or is Emanuel there to not let a crisis go to waste?

Set ups are not rocket science.

This has more of a smell of treachery than bad military decisions
