Video: Netanyahu Defends Israel In Flotilla Incident

Netanyahu really brings his point home at the 6:46 mark. 
The Last Tradition: Benjamin Netanyahu courageously defends his nation against a world who has lost their sense of moral clarity! 
Israel has the right to exist and defend herself against aggression and millions of right thinking Americans stand with her, always.  

My friend Sam, nail this.  Netanyahu offers some much needed common sense to this whole flotilla incident. There was a well know blockade in place. No one can argue that Israel has more than enough reasons to be cautious about any cargo entering Gaza, no matter what the stated cause is. With a blockage in place and Israel under constant treat, shouldn’t any sane person expect, Israel to defend themselves by enforcing the blockage? So why are so many in the media acting like Israel’s boarding of the Turkish ship is such an aggressive act?

Sarah Palin seems to asking the same question. 
The Weekly Standard: The media, as usual, seems to be reporting only one side of the Israeli Flotilla incident. Don't trust the mainstream media to give you both sides of a story fairly... you must seek out fair reporting to ensure you have all the information. 
As far too many in the media, and in various governments, rush to condemn Israel, we must put the recent events off Israel’s coast into the right perspective.  This “relief” convoy was not about humanitarian aid, as the liberal mainstream media keeps reporting.  The whole operation was designed to provoke Israel, not to provide supplies to Palestinians held hostage by Hamas terrorists in Gaza.  Anyone who sees the video of Israeli commandos being attacked as they land on that ship knows the people aboard were vicious thugs, not “peace activists.” The media insults our intelligence with their outright mischaracterization of who these enemies are.  [MORE]

CNN is reporting that Hamas has refused the aid on the ships. That speaks volumes. They don't care about the people there and the sooner the rest of the world sees that the better.

Gave you some linky love.

Have a good day!!

yep...says it right there. They really don't need the stuff...they are well stocked with food, and they come to Israel if they need care.

Netanyahu has every right to defend Israel regarding this fiasco. I'm still trying to piece together why the President is so.... anti-Israel. The media would have you to believe Israel is the "bad guy" here. There is massive support for Israel among the American people (myself included). So I suppose since Obama could bully a "health-care" legislation into light, then he can bully Israel too? Great attitude... not.

I don't buy the Israeli defense/security argument Netanyahu is peddling. If they wanted to board or sink the ship when it came into Israel territorial water fine, but to board the ship and kill those people in International water was obsurd, the order should have never been issued, especially a ship of a relative ally in the region, Turkey.

There was no need to board the ship in international waters, they could have easily used ships to deter the ship until it got into Israeli waters, but the Israelis played right into the PR game that Hamas setup for them.

As for the US's stance, the one thing I applaud Obama for is not constantly jumping in the affairs of Israel and having their back regardless of the situation.

Little old lady here who recalls her Christian mother say after Hitler, “beware the charismatic leader and his followers; his power can free-up the pent-up mouths of the rabid”. Helen Thomas’ remarks on “the Jews” is telling. More telling will be the country’s reaction to it. No pass should be given on account of she is old – that would be ageism, and she is against that. There is no apology acceptable to cover an opened mouth rant when that rant is integral to the person uttering it. Ergo, beware of Helen Thomas.
