Israel "Accidentally" Distributes Video Mocking Flotilla Dead

The press office of the PM of Israel sent this video around the world. Apparently inadvertently, according to spokesman Mark Regev. Regev notes nonetheless that ""I called my kids in to watch it because I thought it was funny. It's what Israelis feel. . "

Regev notes. . . that "" I called my kids in to watch it because I thought it was funny. It's what Israelis feel. . "
^^^^^^^^^^^
So. . . this is how Israelis feel. . . Only a savage with a brain the size of a pea would find this video remotely funny!!
My God! Israel is no democracy! It's a monstrous and embarrassing carbuncle on the face of the civilized world's democracies - of which Israel is the justified pariah of - and is serious need of lancing asap before it destroys us all!!

People who want peace are too rare as it is.
"A 19-year-old American was killed"
The very fact they killed aid workers just shows what cowards they really are
Now his children will probably follow in his footsteps... this alone is not funny

Circulating such a mocking and distasteful video is no different to claiming the Holocaust did not happen! Whilst the numbers killed were small in significance to those murdered during the Holocaust the principle of lieing to cover the most evil acts is one that was polished almost to perfection by the Nazis! Sadly Israel has chosen to emulate the Jews former Nazi oppressors in their style of punishing the many for the sins of the few and saying they did not do it or some other excuse for the action!

Do Israeli sympathisers really think that this video will help their cause in the slightest? It is very damning to the Jerusalem Postís deputy managing editor, Caroline Glick and friends. If she doesnít lose her job over it there is no credibility to that newspaper to be impartial.

If any of those involved are not ashamed of themselves then they have no conscience. I may not agree with Israel on their actions in Gaza but I would never disrespect the memory of the Israeli casualties, soldiers as well. I think of the loved ones who miss them, the mothers that took such care over them as infants. This is not a situation that cannot bear flippancy on either side. It is a tragedy. What were they thinking?

I would have found this video funny if no one had died. But as you can see, this event should not have happened in the first place. There is a purpose for it's happening and it is a political one. The leaders of Hamas and Israel are playing politics...politics of genocide! The leaders of both nations continue with this "game", which helps them in their political aspirations, while millions of civilians on both sides suffer because of their murderous deed. When will they ever learn? This seems to be forever!

Only funny to someone like an Israeli. Ah the feeling of power is intoxicating isn't it. Power the goal of the rapist. It isn't the sex...it is the torment of the victim. What joy to be so stong and impervious knowing noone will do anything to you. And pass on that merciful attitude i thought your 'religion' advocated for. Oh, just for the jews alone!!!? Oh i see now the logic of the demented culture that can't look itself in the mirror i bet. Obviously, no clues will get through the thick skulls of the killer mentality. So thanks for the joke but glad it is on you Isreal. More people dislike you more now than ever did. Ha ha!

The video, titled -- We Con the World -- set to the tune of the 1985 hit, --We are the World-- was put together by Caroline Glick, a former member of the Israel Defense Forces and columnist for the Jerusalem Post.

its funny to see, for the Israelis, how could human being say something like that?, they really reached the limit they consider themselves above the world special humans and the other nations slaves to them, its not human-sense.

Most everyone here at Care2 who follows these articles knows by now two things. That I am an avowed two stater who doesn't brook much nonsense or agitprop from anyone who espouses extremism and that Dave and i usually don't see eye to eye on things like this, though I'm sure that he's kind to other people and animals like I am.

I find this kind of trite amateurism both annoying, and in this case, harmful to Mideast peace and general understanding of the really complex issues that surround the Mideast Conflict. Because I view Dave's articles with such skepticism, I looked into the reporter for Huffington Post, a source I use a lot of for my own posted articles here at Care2.Eileen Read seems a really fine journalist with no axe to grind--here's an excerpt from her May 1 article on new peace talks between Israelis and Palestinians:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eileen-read/obama-middle-east-peace-t_b_559558.html

These are the talks that should have started a year ago, shortly after Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu stated his support for a two-state solution during a speech on June 14 at Bar Ilan University. There've been a lot of bumps in the road toward negotiations since then, mostly over settlements and settlers in the future Palestine. [This piece in the Times reviews the bumps.]

A good time to take a moment to re-read Netanyahu's speech, especially these two hopeful paragraphs:

But, friends, we must state the whole truth here. The truth is that in the area of our homeland, in the heart of our Jewish Homeland, now lives a large population of Palestinians. We do not want to rule over them. We do not want to run their lives. We do not want to force our flag and our culture on them. In my vision of peace, there are two free peoples living side by side in this small land, with good neighborly relations and mutual respect, each with its flag, anthem and government, with neither one threatening its neighbor's security and existence....
I call upon Arab leaders and Palestinian leaders: Let's go in the path of Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat, Yitzhak Rabin and King Hussein. Let's go in the path of Prophet Isaiah, who spoke thousands of years ago, they shall beat their swords into plowshares and know war no more. Let us know war no more. Let us know peace.

No axe to grind there, and she know becomes one of my favorite reporters at Huffington--thanks Dave!

So, with Dave and his good source and good reporter, I conclude that this awful attempt at parody and satire (please leave satire only to the Onion and other good sources!) is a public relations nightmare and thorough embarrassment for Israel.. I spend my time here showing how Hamas is a crony infested brutal pack of thugs, and these folks just shoot down what myself and others do here by an immature show of stupidity mocking a deadly serious raid and the real issues that continue to plague the situation.

I don't understand for the life of me how a trained journalist can let this thing get released no less think that it's funny. Using the song "We Are the World" also insults the millions of people and dozens of performers who tried to help feed hungry people in the past at the very least indirectly and making fun of aid efforts through parody personally nauseates me. No more so then Arab propaganda about denying the Holocaust does.

Dave, we may never see things on the general issues in sync but I thank you for bringing this forward.
Never thought you'd see that--neither did I

I can see why many people don't like this Dave fellow!
Seems a real Jews basher to me!Whatever the background of this video, if you read the comments about it, the general view is that there was nothing wrong about it!
The fact that an American was shot five times (was it not six) on board, is neither here nor there.
If the Israelis were not proved, no one would have been shot.
Besides, the American, was American because of birth oor passport?
And let me assure you, having been there, the people in Gaza are much better off than any blacks in Africa, never mind places like Myanmar(burma)
