IDF: Some flotilla participants planning violence

Israel Defense Forces sources reported to the Jerusalem Post that some of the activists on board the Gaza-bound flotilla are planning to kill Israeli soldiers if the IDF boards the ships and attempts to block them from breaking Israel’s maritime blockade of the region.   

The IDF says some passengers onboard the flotilla ships have prepared sacks of sulfur to throw at Israeli soldiers. If sulfur is poured on a soldier it could render him paralyzed and helpless — and could be fired up like a torch with the flick of a match. If these reports are accurate, the soldiers on this mission are in grave danger, and will need to board the ships prepared for anything.

Of course, flotilla participants claim that the IDF’s concerns are only meant to give Israeli soldiers a pretense to use force. One of them, Dror Feiler, stated that “violent people are not permitted to take part in the flotilla….All of the passengers signed a pledge of non-violence.” But these assurances are totally implausible. Look at last year’s ordeal with the Mavi Marmara, when IDF soldiers, in full accordance with international law, attempted to stop a flotilla ship and were swarmed by a mob of club and knife-wielding thugs.

The “peaceful activists” were not so peaceful then. The flotilla ships have already sailed and are fast approaching — and Israelis know that things could easily go wrong, despite Israel’s peaceful intentions.

    I’m SURE that a pledge of non-violence will be binding on a person who might otherwise commit violence (sarcasm).

    mine the harbors, and let it be widely known they ARE mined. If the ships sail in…bye bye ship.

    Above all that is going on. We should pray for the peace of Jerlusalm in everysingle way. We must pray for the lost tribes of Israel to be all rescued as fast as possible. From disasters taken place from all over the world be gathered to await the return of Yeshewa(Jesus.). The lost tribe of Israel as well as the Eagles of the 4-winds to be joined together to meet the return of Yeshewa Of Yerlusalm(Jesus of Jerlusalm.)So Be It! AMEN!

    1 little torpedo per boat.
    They seriously think they’re trying to fool people here?
    This will be a massacre one way or another. They are not coming for peace.
    “violent people are not permitted to take part in the flotilla….All of the passengers signed a pledge of non-violence.” Uuuumm…remember last year? Did they sign it too?

    May God protect the IDF, and may God’s will be accomplished in the situation.

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.
