Two more genocidal warships from Iran (affectionately called "aid ships" by a media aligned with the jihad force) are making their way to Gaza in a blatant act of war. Blockade busting to what end? The blockade is against arms, arms to kill Jews. Period.
And the newly devout and Islamized Turkey was not deterred by the videotaped Jew-hating disaster of their first war convoy (affectionately called a "flotilla" by the media). They are preparing the next convoy. The blood-lusty barbarians must be dreaming of another hellfire Ottoman empire as they abandon the failed experiment of a secular Islamic state (where, in history, has it ever succeeded?) and embrace jihad.
- A Turkish humanitarian group that purportedly has ties to terrorism said it will send another flotilla to break the Gaza blockade.
Representatives of the Turkish Humanitarian Relief Foundation, or IHH, said Wednesday during a news conference at the European Parliament in Strasbourg that it will participate in another flotilla of aid and activists next month. According to IHH, which Israel and some U.S. Congress members say have ties to terrorism, it already has acquired six ships for the late July flotilla and called on others to add vessels.
Several pro-Palestinian groups are scheduled to participate in what has been dubbed the Fleet of Freedom 2, including Turkish, Greek and Swedish nongovernmental organizations, Free Gaza and the International Committee to Lift the Siege on Gaza.
All of which would not be possible without the vacuum created by the weak and feckless boulevardier in the White House.
The truly and deliberately evil men are a very small minority; it is the appeaser who unleashes them on mankind; it is the appeaser’s intellectual abdication that invites them to take over. When a culture’s dominant trend is geared to irrationality, the thugs win over the appeasers. When intellectual leaders fail to foster the best in the mixed, unformed, vacillating character of people at large, the thugs are sure to bring out the worst. When the ablest men turn into cowards, the average men turn into brutes. Ayn Rand

A spokesman for UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Tuesday that the secretary general remains "hopeful" that the world body will approve an international inquiry into the Gaza flotilla incident - on top of Israel's own domestic investigation - after it received overwhelming support in a closed Security Council meeting Tuesday. The U.S. position on the panel - amid intense support for it among UN members - has been to wait and see what Ban proposes. "As we always do, we will work hard to make sure that Israel is not treated unfairly at the UN," a U.S. official said. (Politico)
UPDATE: Today's Investor's Business Daily:
Behind The White House's Anti-Israel Agenda
Foreign Policy: In another affront to a key ally, the White House reportedly doesn't buy Israel's story over the Gaza flotilla flap and supports a U.N. probe of its actions. Helen Thomas would be proud.
According to the Weekly Standard, the investigation will be "one-sided, focusing entirely on Israeli behavior and not on Turkey or Hamas" — despite overwhelming evidence that the terrorist group planned to assault Israeli forces.
It has become increasingly clear that this administration is appeasing the Muslim world at the expense of Israel, a strategic partner in the Middle East at a time when Iran threatens the world with nukes. Where does this reckless new anti-Israel policy come from?
The Israeli press blames the president's own personal bias. Citing recent remarks by a top Egyptian official, it's convinced that President Obama is a closet Muslim secretly furthering the agenda of the Palestinians and other Arabs.
"The American president told me in confidence that he is a Muslim," Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said after a recent one-on-one meeting with Obama. He made the remarks on Nile TV. It was from Egypt that Obama made his famous "olive branch" speech to the Muslim world essentially apologizing for the War on Terror.
While Obama's father and stepfather were Muslim, and he himself studied Islam as a child in Indonesia, there's no evidence that the president practices Islam. As far as we know, he doesn't pray five times a day or observe other Islamic rituals.
But Obama, who speaks some Arabic, has made it clear that he identifies at least culturally with Islam. He has waxed fondly of its traditions, once describing the Islamic call to prayer as "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth."
This may explain in part why Obama has expressed sympathy with the widely held Muslim belief that American foreign policy — expressly its partnership with Israel — is largely to blame for anti-American terrorism.
