From the Rabbi’s mouth to Lord’s ear. The waves of pro-Israel activism begins to show their mettle. Forget all the talk about the highly over rated Israel “PR” machine, it’s always been ad hoc since I can remember. The anti-Israel nay sayers love to hype it up, but there’s nothing to their claims.
That’s why it’s so refreshing to see average Israelis getting into the mix and sticking up for their state with not only words, but with action as well. The only way we will defeat the forces of death and destruction, and the supporters of it, is to meet them head on. I can’t think of a better way to counter the Arabs’ propaganda than to show up with the facts and face them eye to eye. Good going to those people out in their boats in the flotilla of the just and righteous!
NOTE: The TT particulary like this line: “Over the weekend, some four dozens yachts and small boats sailed out of Israeli harbors and paraded up and down the coast waving anti-Hamas and anti-Turkish banners.”
Counter flotilla attempts to defuse propaganda effect with own sail as Israel’s Navy prepares to quietly intercept internationals deep at sea.
The Israeli Navy is preparing to quietly intercept an international flotilla attempting a highly visible run on the naval blockade of the Gaza Strip.
Meanwhile, Israelis have staged their own counter-flotilla in response to the nine ships headed toward Gaza, bearing over 10,000 tons of supplies and hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists, including hundreds of Turks and European legislators.

“These people don’t care about the Palestinians. They only want to make Israel look bad and embarrass the Israeli people,” Emmanuel Shai, one of the organizers of the counter flotilla told The Media Line.
“They do this from hate. They don’t want to help the Palestinian people, because if they did, they could have brought all this stuff to Israel and it could have been relayed to them.”
