Repeating and Defeating

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

Submitted by Jay1 (United States), Jun 1, 2010 at 22:35

The Flotilla bears some resemblance to the problems America has with the illegals on the Mexican border .How do you protect yourself without being seen as cruel. If Im right, I think Israel said the ship could dock at Ashdod for inspection,and humanitarian supplies only, can go on to Gaza. I think Israel said that. But the Flotilla didnt want to dock in Ashdod and properly disembark. It wouldnt satisfy their hunger for anti Israeli embarrasment.

Israel should have repeated itself twenty times in print and in press. Humanitarian ships can disembark via inspection at Ashdod for Gaza. Anything else will be considered either a provocation to fan and goat anti Israel flames worldwide,or an attempt to smuggle warlike materials. And then Israel should repeat it for the twenty first time. Repeating and Defeating seems to be a Middle Eastern strategy that works. Israel's foes get away with it when theyre wrong and nuts. ...
