why the fiery protests in KL against the israel attack that happened recently? why so fast… such an immeidate response to protest… without first wait first to find out further details? even the umno youth, khairy boy was leading a protest. woo! INIKAH BUDAYA MEREKA?
wah… how come the govt allow protests eh? hundreds of them and burning of flags too – and the police never stop them. say, our PAIN (penang anti isa network – or the gabungan mansuhkan ISA (GMI) group should hold our anti ISA protest soon, since the govt allows protest! BERSIH (the coalition for free and fair election), now’s your chance to start planning for a mammoth rally, since the rally against israel was permitted.
just wait for tomorrow – friday prayers time! also protest time! remember the after friday prayer protests? i bet penang also will see this after friday prayer protest against israel tomorrow and in KL… even more fiery than ever? that will be how they manage to get the crowd – after praying, come out to shout and curse. nice.
a commenter in malaysiakini said:
When tens of thousands in Darfur got killed, raped, displaced by the Sudanese army and the armed tribesmen, where were all the humanitarian activists in Malaysia? Did they go to the Sudan embassy to protest? Did they burn an effigy of President Omar Bashir? Did they step on and burn the Sudanese flag? Why? Are they not colour blind?
Are our so-called humanitarian activists practising selective discrimination? Now that it is not possible for the flotilla to reach Gaza, why not take the opportunity to divert the flotillas to Sudan?
yes indeed, i echo what he or she said above!
those of you who are on facebook, do go to my 2malaysia facebook group to discuss on this issue.
here is one facebook page worth reading… what the mainstream media won’t publish:
We Stand with Israel >>Top level Islamic extremists linked to Gaza flotilla:
dover.idf.il – The launching ceremony for the flotilla to the Gaza Strip was attended by several Islamist extremists in Istanbul.
While the flotilla organizers present themselves as human rights advocates whose sole goal is to assist the people of Gaza, a new report reveals the groups cooperation with radical human rights violators.
Haaretz.com – the organizers of the aid convoy were invited to unload their cargo at the Israeli port of Ashdod, where it would be transferred to Gaza following an inspection…. loaded with 10,000 tons of humanitarian aid and building materials… One of the commandos told reporters he descended by rope from a helicopter onto one of the six ships in the convoy and was immediately attacked by a group of people waiting for them. “They beat us with metal sticks and knives,” he said. “There was live fire at some point against us.”… “They jumped me, hit me with clubs and bottles and stole my rifle,” one of the commandos said. “I pulled out my pistol and had no choice but to shoot.”… The soldiers said they were forced to open fire after the activists struck one of their comrades in the head and trampled on him. A senior IDF field commander ordered the soldiers then to respond with fire, a decision which the commandos said received full backing the military echelon.
>>Freedom Flotilla’s Primary Aim is to Defame Israel: 1 ton of aid per Gaza resident in last 18 months
www.mfa.gov.il – Despite attacks by Hamas, Israel maintains an ongoing humanitarian corridor for the transfer of perishable and staple food items to Gaza. This conduit is used by internationally recognized organizations including the United Nations and the Red Cross… Well over a million tons of humanitarian supplies entered Gaza from Israel over the last 18 months equaling nearly a ton of aid for every man, woman and child in Gaza… The land crossings remain the most efficient system to transfer goods to Gaza, and the flotilla organizers are well aware of this fact… The organizers also know that since December 2008, their ships have been denied permission to land… Israel has invited the organizers of the flotilla to use the land crossings, in the same manner as all the reputable international organizations. … If the organizers were truly interesting in providing humanitarian aid – as opposed to engaging in publicity stunts – they would use the proper channels to ensure delivery of any supplies. .. Since January 2009, more than a million tons of humanitarian aid have been transferred into Gaza. In the first quarter of 2010 alone, almost 100,000 tons of supplies have been provided, including 48,000 tons of food products, approximately 550 tons of milk powder and baby food, 2700 tons of rice, 40,000 tons of wheat, 185 tons of aggregates, 2000 tons of clothing and footwear, 20 tons of iron, 25 tons of cement and more than 1000 tons of medicine and medical equipment. The fuel and electricity needs are similarly being met, and hundreds of Palestinians from Gaza come to Israel for medical treatment.
>>Boarding of Flotilla Crucial to Israel National Security
The reason for the decision to deploy such a large force against the flotilla is that if the current sail were to succeed – even partially – in reaching the Gaza port or not far from the Strip’s coast, Hamas would be able to receive anything it desires, starting with Iranian money and ending with heavy rockets possesses by Hezbollah and antiaircraft missiles and weapons….
Should the Turks succeed in their efforts to open a sea line to Gaza as a result of the precedent which may be created by the current sail, the southern part of the State of Israel will be under clear and immediate danger, similar to the situation in the north…. Compared to this threat, the threat embodied in a possible clash between the sail’s passengers, some of whom belong to terror organizations and have been involved in acts of terror and in funding terroristic activities, is reduced.
>>Days Before Flotilla Arrival Israel Aware of Possible “Hefty Price in PR Arena”
Israel Defense Forces spokespeople were also there (in Haifa harbour), to document and distribute images of the interception, since the PR battle against this particular “enemy” is as important as the actual struggle. … “The reason we are deploying such a large force and after much preparation, is to minimize the PR damage we may suffer while carrying out the main mission, which is to prevent the precedent of opening an unsupervised maritime route to Hamas in Gaza.” … we are aware that the other side will try to make us look bad. We will show restraint and not respond to provocations, we will do only what is necessary to carry out the mission, no more, but no less either.”
… The decision was made not to allow the ships to arrive in Gaza under any circumstances, even if Israel is forced to pay a hefty price in the PR arena and in the international community’s eyes.
