Analysis: Israel Suffers Strategic Blowback in Flotilla Raid

Gaza Freedom Flotilla raid

Flotilla raid

Speaking before a parliamentary committee about last month’s Israeli raid on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, which killed nine and injured over 60 international volunteers, a senior Israeli intelligence official warned  that “[e]vents [like this] are likely to go out of control and the situation could deteriorate to extreme scenarios”. The official was no other than Meir Dagan, director of the Mossad, Israel’s foremost external intelligence agency. As I explain in an article published yesterday in Daily News Corner, to some extent, Dagan’s “extreme scenario” has already materialized. The raid’s outrageous death toll has further-worsened Israel’s deteriorating relations with Australia and has caused the outright termination of the Jewish state’s diplomatic contacts with several non-Western countries that used to be among its closest international friends, such as Turkey, South Africa, Ecuador and Nicaragua. More importantly, the flotilla attack has even stigmatized Israel’s relations with the United States, a development that fits into the broader pattern of steadily worsening US-Israeli relations in recent years. It is no coincidence that, on the day after the raid, Mossad chief Dagan said that “Israel is gradually turning from an asset to the United States to a burden”. Read article →

    These days Israel is in such bad shape that the lickspittles have to wait for the check to clear before the full collaboration mode clicks in.

    The Zionist propaganda machine doesn’t know when to stop lying. Is this a Jewish thing? It is an ongoing theme of Curb Your Enthusiasm: get away with a lie, and take that to be encouragement to continue to elaborate on the lie, until it is so outrageous that nobody believes you. The ‘unnamed U.S. defense source’ for the Saudi overflight story said:

    “They have already done tests to make sure their own jets aren’t scrambled and no one gets shot down. This has all been done with the agreement of the [U.S.] State Department.”

    The Saudis had to do ‘tests’? And the U. S. State Department agreed to this? Too much implausible detail does not help a lie. Somebody ought to inform the Jews. I wonder if the Americans did ‘tests’ to ensure their jets wouldn’t automatically go up to stop the September 11 attacks.

    Weird Fisk column. I’ve noticed that Fisk knows nothing about Canada. William Lyon Mackenzie King is widely considered to be the greatest Canadian Prime Minister (including managing Canada’s war effort against Hitler). Mulroney was fellating the Jews as he had just been royally reamed out by a Canadian judicial inquiry on Mulroney’s corruption. I do like Fisk’s description of the vile National Post (over which the Jews have just managed to maintain control):

    “Mulroney’s devastating critique – it gets much worse – was published in last Monday’s edition of Canada’s ever more lunatic National Post, a paper which reads more and more like a right-wing Israeli settlers’ house magazine in its defamatory attacks on the dead Turks of last week’s aid convoy to Gaza and in its grovelling support for Israel’s indisciplined army.”

    I have a question. Both Canada and the United States turned the St Louis away. Of course, nobody knew that the Jews on the ship were being sent back to their death. It is just like the boats of immigrants being turned away all over the world today – the assumption is that these are not real refugees, but ‘economic refugees’. In about five to ten years almost five million Jewish refugees will come knocking on your door when the shitty little country collapses. Will you take them in?
