Flotilla Clash: Can You Handle The Truth?

Probably not.
It's been quite a grim day, but this article did give me a laugh.
Anti-Israel protestors demonstrated in Manchester and "surged the BBC's entrance, smashing its front doors. One man climbed to the top of the building to plant a Palestinian flag and there were at least three arrests."
"Talat Ali, 40, organizer from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign said: "This is a peaceful demonstration... we are not happy with the biased news given by the BBC".
Yet again we see that the people in these Palestinian rights and "peace" organisations don't really know the meaning of the word.
As for the BBC's reporting, from what I've seen they have been reluctant to embellish on the "peace activists'" attack, instead choosing (like all the other media outlets) to focus on Israel's reaction - even commenting on some footage that it shows an activist "fighting back" when it actually showed a soldier being attacked as soon as he had landed. To be fair though, the BBC - as it should - did give airtime to spokespersons from both sides, and showed footage of the battle - footage that doesn't lie; not only what the IDF filmed. 
I can only assume it is the BBC airing this footage that bothers these protestors, as it clearly shows IDF soldiers being brutally attacked before they retaliated, thus disproving claims that the IDF boarded with the intention to kill, and so enraging those who want to portray Israel as a terrorist state. They just can't handle the truth.


  1. They posted an interview video that showed one of their interviewers asking why Hamas didn't stop rockets into Israel and pointing out the Hamas spokesman was lieing. I was shocked.

  2. This should be the Israeli response to Turkey.

  3. jesus hating zionist satanists!
