"For Zion's sake I shall not hold my peace, And for Jerusalem's sake I shall not rest."



The Terrorism "Exodus Ship"
by Steven Plaut

 You probably have heard that a group of Israel haters, including
several members of the Jews for a Second Holocaust, are planning to
outfit a boat to crash through the blockade of the Gaza Strip, to show their
solidarity with the Hamas and their opposition to Israel defending
itself.

It is sort of a Bizarro world version of the ship "Exodus," which
smuggled refugees from Europe into the Land of Israel and challenged the British blockade.  A similar pro-terror Bizarro Exodus was outfitted about 25
years ago by Peace Now types to bring Palestinian "refugees" into
Israel as part of their support for the Palestinian "right of return."  Singer

Hava Alberstein was one of the organizers back then.  In the current
project, the idea would be to embarrass Israel into ending the blockade
of the Gaza Hamastan, and so allowing Hamas to import weapons and rockets more freely.

 In the current pro-Hamas publicity stunt, the ship and its mission
are  funded by Jimmy Carter, the very worst ex-President in American
history, and a gaggle of other anti-Semites.

    In today\'s Maariv, deputy editor Ben Dror Yemini, himself left of
center, demolishes the cretins organizing the terror ship, in one of
his best columns ever.  It can be seen in Hebrew here:

    Here are my translations of some portions of the column:

"The Hate Ship that will Rescue the Hamas" 
by Ben Dror Yemini - Aug 5, 08

The Hamas regime in Gaza decided to show the world last weekend what it
is capable of doing.  Not  that we did not already know, but the timing
was impeccable.  The tied down on the floor a group of "prisoners,"
Palestinians (from the Fat\'h and the PLO --- SP), and massacred them.

  The leading media did not show the photos.  I wonder why...   The Hamas
knew how to take care of them.  They did so with gas.  They pumped it into
the private body parts of their victims until they died.  Nine unarmed
people, killed in cold blood.  No doubt there were many more, but the nine wereconfirmed by "human rights organizations."  ...

This murderous regime is now the favorite of the "forces of progress,"
the same people who supported Stalin while he murdered 20 million of his
own compatriots. ...

And now the alliance of "progressive forces" with mass murderers has to
a new expression....  They are with the Hamas.  And they are partners in
the Hate Ship that is supposed to leave Cyprus today or tomorrow for the
Hamas-regime in Gaza.  They want to "break the blockade."   Sure they
do.

So that the Murder-ocracy will not be contained only in Gaza.  We need
to take care of them.  Once again we see the axis of the international
Left with the Kingdom of Evil. The same people who pump gas into the rectums of their own countrymen, while the Leftists prepare a support ship to help them.

It would be one thing if we were talking only about the lunatic fringe. But the Jimmy Carter Center is behind this ship of support for the
murderous terrorists.  And not just him, some Nobel Prize winners,
Desmond Tutu from South Africa, an ex-British cabinet minister, Tony Blair\'s
sister-in-law, and even Hedi Epstein, an anti-Israel radical who claims
to be a Holocaust survivor, even though she left Germany in 1939.   You
see, she was rescued from the gas chambers, which is why she is now acting  to support those who use gas to murder people....

These people do not really care about human rights for Palestinians.
They are driven by hatred of Israel, not compassion for Palestinians, desire
 for human rights or for peace.   They prefer an alliance with Satan....
