President-elect Obama stayed silent when, back in December of 2008 and January of 2009, Israel declared war on the Palestinian people of the Gaza Strip prison camp. (In my view that was a demonstration of naked Israeli state terrorism). As I write from America, with the drama and implications of Israel’s murderous attack on the Gaza Flotilla still being played out, I find myself wondering if President Obama will have the balls to say to Israel, “Enough is enough”.

He would not dare to say that in those words, but he could break with precedence by refusing to veto a Security Council resolution condemning Israel.

Will he do so?

We shall see.

If he does authorize a veto, it will be time for even those of us who invested some good faith in him to conclude that he is the prisoner of the Zionist lobby and its stooges in Congress and, more to the point, a prisoner with no hope of escape.

    I visit this site often and find it to be balanced and fair. This is worse than the Liberty attack for the fact that Israel attacked unarmed civilians this time rather than military.
    The attack on the Liberty was evil. This latest act of piracy is beyond the pale.

    As for the comparison with the USS Liberty, they were totally unarmed as well, Jim. The disgrace in that was what happened afterwards and still to this day has never been resolved and that is the cover up by Johnson and ALL other Presidents since that day,ven the good ones.
    This will be the main point here as well. The weak Obama has not yet said a word to my knowledge but is possible waiting until he gets his script from AIPAC or, maybe in this case, straight from Netanyahu with the doctored photos, false witnesses and Jewish lies by the bucketfull.
    Sadly, sounds like a comedy, but it is not but all the features are there; the puppet, the puppermaster, akin to Punch and Judy and we all know who is playing Punch.
    Alan, I fear that he will say nothing, do nothing. There are so many precedents for adopting this practice. After all, all the Zionists, Israelis and Jews have to do is wait it out, feeding their owned media what they want the world to hear. It will die down if we let it.
    What we need to do is to monitor carefully the media in this matter. We must not let it die down.
    Sadly if it gets to a court for legal action, which it will, the result there is also a forgone conclusion. If it is in the Hague, Israel will ignore it; if it is in America, the court is stacked against justice; if it is the UN, it will be ignored as Israel has done on so many other occasions.
    And this is the country that is leading the US around by the nose to start another war in iran.
    Shame on the whole lot of them

    Comrade Soetoro will do nothing, just like the other tools he associates with. They are employees. Pure and simple.
    There was a time when something like this would require them to at least “feign” outrage. That’s all behind us now, I’m afraid. They’ve managed to dull the senses of the eaters to a point where things like this just don’t seem surprising any longer.
    Does anyone even question by what authority Israel “rules” Palestine? Why is Israel different from Somalia? Piracy is piracy, no? Murder is murder.
    Their propaganda based on “they were terrorists” as if that gives license to kill at will, with impunity is hardly discussed. They descend in international waters in the dark with commandos and portray themselves as “victims”? It reminds me of the old saw about the guy who kills his parents and begs mercy because he’s an orphan.
    No, Barry won’t do a thing. They bought him and the others lock, stock and barrel and he will be as effective here as he is with BP.
    The next time you hear talk of sanctions for Iran, remember that Iran isn’t murdering anybody.

    Like the resistance against the Nazis, we have to fight this rogue group Israel who claims to be state or even a democratic one.
    A democratic state which tortures and murders children, steals land and resources and threatens a whole region.

    Enough is enough. The Jewish terrorists will get an answer sooner than they might like.

    The chosen will set the whole region on fire and it will burn them down too. That must be the “intelligence” the Jews claim to have.

    – Your Move, Mr. President

    Well, Alan, we have seen his move and no one could be impressed with the sleight of hand that is evident daily from that man.
    He can be vociferous in the case of the oil in the gulf, outspoken in the changes needed in the financial industry, but when it comes to piracy, murder and the breaking of international law he is totally breathless.
    If any people needed confirmation of his total compliance to the Israeli way, then we have seen it and here’s the finger for the rest of the world.
    He uses his Israeli mouthpiece Clinton, a positive disgrace as a US public servant to mutter inconsequential words to placate her masters in Tel Aviv.
    This is the lowest point in my living memory of US credibility and from which in my mind, they will never recover.
    The United States of Israel is now an entity.

    Alan,I want to know when John Pilger will have the courage like you to speak the truth.He did not want bar of the scientific facts presented by Architects and Engineers for 911 truth.He saw the real truth as being poison to his own credibility.

    Time is running out because mad dog Israel knows that there is enormous growing awareness and war will be their escape.

    More people like you have to have the courage to speak up or Israel will take us all to hell in a hand basket.
