Just wanting to share these assessments by Israel's Prime Minister and Foreign Ministers to put the Turkish flotilla attack in proper perspective:

"Amid the international criticism and protests, Netanyahu, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Ayalon all strongly reaffirmed the policy of intercepting the flotilla and firmly backed the conduct of the IDF itself.

“I fully support the IDF action,” said Netanyahu. He explained to reporters after a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper that Israel needed to check the cargo that the flotilla was bringing to Gaza, to ensure it contained no weapons. This had been done successfully with five ships, but the sixth had not cooperated, said Netanyahu.

People on board that ship beat, clubbed and stabbed soldiers, and there was a report of gunfire, he said.

Both Lieberman and Ayalon disputed claims that Israel had broken international law when it boarded the vessel.

Israel is a sovereign state and cannot accept any challenge to its sovereignty,” said Lieberman. “This is not the first time Israel has stopped ships in international waters. When a ship refuses to accede to warnings and obey instructions, we have the right to board it [under] international law.”

Ayalon, who said he planned to hold discussions on Tuesday with key North American Jewish leaders and organizations, said the flotilla “was an armada of hate and violence,” and added, “It was a premeditated and outrageous provocation.”

The flotilla’s organizers had ties to global jihad, al-Qaida and Hamas, said Ayalon.

“Their intent was violent, their methods were violent and their results were unfortunately violent,” he said.

“Israel regrets the loss of life and did everything it could to avoid this outcome,” said Ayalon, adding that Israel had offered to transport the humanitarian cargo on board the ship to Gaza.

“The organizers on the ship did not heed the calls of our forces this morning to peacefully follow them and bring a peaceful closure to this event,” said Ayalon.

The successful arrival of the flotilla in Gaza would have created “a corridor of arms-smuggling,” he said.


Most of the world will "spin" this incident with an anti-Israel bias into Israel being at fault. This was the plan to begin with as the "peace activists" aboard the Gaza-bound flotilla intended to defy Israel and face armed conflict.

This will be used as a smokescreen for the many Arab enemies of Israel to deftly launch what they will label as a" counterattack" which the world will readily accept.

Israel is quickly finding herself totally alone, as the plot to turn world sentiment against her succeeds. She will find herself so alone that the only refuge she will find will be in the Lord. 

The entire purpose of the end of the age is for the redemption of Israel and to reunite her with her Messiah, Yeshua Ha Mashiach. How privileged we are to be witnesses of God's plan for Israel and to see it unfolding before our very eyes!

May we pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for the eyes of the children of Israel to be opened!!
