The bodies don’t lie, the truth is out, Israel shot to kill not in self defence

By Dark Politricks

It has taken almost a week but the truth about the Israeli raid in international waters on the Freedom Flotilla has finally got out.

We need to ignore the high feelings on both sides, the biased press statements by government ministers or members of the flotilla, the edited video footage realised by the IDF and the laughable “haul” of weapons recovered from the ships.

Also forget about the underlying reasons for the flotilla, the illegal blockade of Gaza, the immense suffering of the people in that open prison camp as well as the suffering of Israelis who occasionally have rockets randomly fired at them.

To get to the truth of the Flotilla attacks we must ignore anything that can be misconstrued, embellished, or laden with political bias and personal opinion. This does not leave us with much but it does leave us with one thing apart from the bare naked breach of international law carried out by Israel when it attacked the Flotilla in international waters.

We now have the autopsy reports from the bodies of the 9 dead activists confirmed dead and it is not pretty reading.

These 9 people were not shot in self defence they were executed.

You do not have clean shots between the eyes or multiple shots to the back of the head at close range if you are shooting in self defence as it has been claimed by the Israelis.

These 9 bodies have over 30 bullets in them.

A 60-year-old man, Ibrahim Bilgen, was shot four times in the temple, chest, hip and back.

A 19-year-old, named as Fulkan Dogan, who also has US citizenship, was shot five times from less that 45cm, in the face, in the back of the head, twice in the leg and once in the back.

Two other men were shot four times

Five of the victims were shot either in the back of the head or in the back.

If you are shooting in self defence you do not shoot someone in the back. If they are not facing you they are not attacking you.

These bullet holes suggest that earlier claims of an assassination list which was supposedly left behind by an IDF soldier and found on board the Mavi Marmara may have been correct after all.

Obviously the IDF has denied all this and continues with their laughable excuse that their brave heroic armed to the teeth soldiers only shot in self defence and that it was the “peace” activists who were the instigators of the violence.

This of course is all propaganda and spin just like the heavily edited videos released by the IDF which show the invading soldiers being fought off by members of the flotilla. This proof, if any were needed, was trumpeted by those blindly in love with Israel as being the beginning and the end of the matter.

How dare these protesters try to fight off an illegal attack by the IDF in international waters.

How dare these well armed terrorists use improvised weaponry to protect themselves after one of their fellow crew had already been killed BEFORE the paratroopers tried to invade.

How dare anyone even dispute the honourable and highly trustworthy word of the Israeli government.

A country that has already refused the UN’s request to hold an independent inquiry into the attack.

A country that wants to attack Iran for having nuclear weapons (unproven) but who refuses to admit to its own huge nuclear arsenal and who refuses to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty themselves.

A country that has also just recently refused to attend a conference aimed at reducing nuclear weapons in their part of the world.

A country that has a long history of ignoring and breaking UN resolutions.

A country that has a long history of breaking international law, assassinating opponents wherever they find them, kidnapping journalists who write about them and using subterfuge and false flag attacks to get others to do their dirty work for them.

And a country who in all probability would rather continue with the current Palestinian situation rather than attempt any meaningful solution as it helps strengthen the “them and us” attitude that has led us to this point in time.

We live in a world of laws that all must obey. When one group of people feel that they are above the law and don’t have to play by the same rules as everyone else then there is an unnatural imbalance that leads to resentment, feelings of superiority and massive acts of hypocrisy.

Israel is one of these groups. No other country in recent times has consistently shown such disdain for the wishes of the international community and ignored so many international laws and rulings. The excuse of anti-semitism, ancient or semi-recent history or the threat of terrorism cannot be used constantly to cover up or excuse their misdeeds and it seems the world is slowly waking up to this fact.

Yes the Jewish people have had a hard time over the centuries however we cannot forget that to be Jewish is not to be black, white, English or African it is a religion that has chosen to be followed. No matter how much Zionism confused the matter in the 19th century to be a Jew is to be someone who follows the law as laid out in the Torah. Even I as a devout atheist could become Jewish if I wanted to put the time in studying the Torah and then once converted due to the Law of Return I would be able to obtain Israeli citizenship and then live in that part of the world as if my ancestors had walked with Abraham.

Is it really right and fair that Palestinians, people who have lived in that part of the world for hundreds if not thousands of years are treated as second class citizens whilst rich Jews from around the world who have literally no ties to that part of the world can just waltz into Israel and act as if they own the place?

It is this fundamental lunacy that I believe is at the center of the Middle Eastern situation. If the Jewish people realised that they are not the “chosen people”, they are not even a “people” just a religion and then maybe other people will start to see that it is just another meaningless label that we attach ourselves with and not some racial trait that some wish to exterminate. On a genetic level they are no different to Palestinians or Iranians and therefore the differences between these sworn enemies are just artificial barriers put up by choice and not necessity.

I truly believe that only with the end of Israel and Palestine and the creation of a secular democratic state in their place in which all current occupants of that land can live together on equal footing will these troubles end. However until that time we must start to hold Israel to account for it’s actions and no longer tolerate it’s refusal to obey international laws.

This can start with a full independent investigation into the Freedom Flotilla attacks carried out by the UN itself and if fault is found on the part of the Israelis then international arrest warrants should be issued and enforced. Anything less would be a signal to Israel that yet again the international power-brokers are tolerating their behaviour.

The autopsies are out and the bodies from the Mavi Marmara are now telling their side of the story, we must listen to them.

    “… to be a Jew is to be someone who follows the law as laid out in the Torah”.

    Sorry but this is not true. Very few Jews follow the Torah (the five books of Moses). If they did, they would not be on their current rampage against the world.

    By and large, world Jewry follows the TALMUD. This sets out to negate the Torah, and to provide every conceivable way to deceive, rob and enslave non-Jews. Zionism is built on the Talmud, and takes it to a new and particularly vicious level, outside of religion, where anything goes.

    The article was good, but this one point needed correcting.

      Well most Jews or people who call themselves “Jewish” are actually atheists who don’t really believe in a God at all, they don’t go to Temple and don’t go on about religion in the slightest. The same can be said for most people who have a “label” of a religion around their necks.

      Jews are “supposed” to follow the Torah and the Talmud is a book of law interpretations by Rabbi’s who have made decisions over the years for the fundamentalist Jews to follow. You are right in saying that there is a lot in the Talmud that Christians would not like to read but then the same could be said about the Bible and the Koran (for other religions) and it was written a long time ago by uneducated (by our standards) and sometimes sick in the head people – look at the Catholic Church nowadays we still have paedophilia rings being protected by the Church.

      However just as Imams are supposed to interpret the Koran for modern day situations, the same could be said with the Rabbis and the Talmud and the 613 commandments (not 10). It’s just that they wrote them down in a book and when non-jews (and I would guess non religious jews) read some of these judgements they are not exactly pretty reading.

      However what real followers of a religion do and don’t do is two different things and labels are put on people at birth that may or may not stick.

      My birth certificate says Church of England on it but I have hardly ever been to a Church of England church.

      This does not mean to say I don’t try to lead a moral and ethical life though, and you don’t have to be religious to do so.

      The same can be said for a lot of Muslims I know who are westernised. They have to call themselves Muslim, pretend to their parents they are religious but they act like any other westerner eating Pork, smoking, drinking etc – same can be said about most “jews” – religion is dying out (hopefully) apart from Islam which is growing in strength.

      I believe the next war will be a culture war between fundamentalist Taliban style Muslims who want 7th century laws to rule (Sharia) and the west. This will mean US/UK troops fighting for Israel against THEIR enemies in foreign deserts. We should let them do their own fighting.

      Thanks for commenting.

        The Talmud is just a commentary on the Torah. It elucidates and expands on what’s written, like a really long version of the Shulchan Aruch. It does NOT say it’s OK to murder, steal, rape, etc., whether Jew or gentile.

    As opposed to shot to give a booboo?

    There were lots of Jews in Israel BEFORE 1948. Very easily established fact. Families. Families that are sometimes connected to people who live outside of Israel.

    Let me guess, you want U.S. out of the UN but not Israel.
