IDF: "Aid" mission is a provocation

Eight ships carrying hundreds of activists are making their way through the Mediterranean towards Gaza. The ships, which were organized by the Turkish group IHH together with other leftist European organizations, are said to be on an “aid” mission.

But Colonel Moshe Levi, commander of the Gaza District Coordination Office, told reporters that there is no shortage of food or equipment in the Hamas-ruled territory. Currently, Israel allows 100 trucks to enter Gaza each day. In the last few months these trucks have delivered over 1,200 tons of medicine and medical eqiupment, 155 tons of food, 2,900 tons of clothes and footwear, and approximately 3.85 million gallons of deisel oil.

It is clear that if there is a humanitarian crisis in Gaza, it’s not because of Israel. The “aid mission” on its way to Gaza seems to have a political agenda, not a humanitarian one.

    Jihadists on a peace mission. I think the planners should not have matyrs of hate onboard a charity ship. As judaic-christians we must support Israel against all her enemies. This was an attempt to poison the West against Israel and we should not be fooled by it.

    My thoughts are that the Israelis are one of the few countries to deal with the Muslim threat the way it should be….with proactive force whenever they are threatened. Muslim activists can complain all they want, but the Muslim presence in many countries is one of intolerance and antagonistic action against any religion that does not support their own. When muslims start containing their terrorist counterparts who use the Koran as an excuse for Jihad, then I will preach tolerance for Muslims. For my part, hats off to the Israelis for their actions!!!!

    Sadly, there are naive individuals who believe the hype in the media. It’s obvious that the ships are more political than true aid. This is especially true if Turkey had something to do with it.

Rabbi’s Commentary
Answering His Call, Faithfully and Joyfully

2014 has certainly been a year of struggles. But those challenges have been answered by God, and by His faithful followers. The Fellowship and our generous friends have been able to offer assistance to those who need it most, from the Holy Land to the former Soviet Union, and we look hopefully to the coming year as one of peace, prosperity, and repairing the world.
