Shhh…don’t tell anyone but Gerry Brownlee is in Israel

Gerry Brownlee in Israel

Gerry Brownlee travelled to Israel after his visit to Iraq. He’s also tried to keep it very quiet, with it not even being reported in NZ media.

Pity, he went for a visit with ‘Bogie’ Ya’alon though and the Israelis know how to use Facebook. ? Read more »

So how much aid was the Maori TV crew delivering to Gaza?

Look at us, we tricked the world and got a free cruise on the Med as well!

Look at us, we tricked the world and got a free cruise on the Med as well!

We were all told by Maori Television that their journalist was part of the Kia Ora Gaza flotilla and they were delivering “aid” to Gaza.

We were also told by the media, acting as useful mouthpieces for Kia Ora Gaza that the aid that was being delivered were “medical equipment and solar panels“.

Marianne?s cargo includes donated medical equipment and solar panels: ?The sun cannot be blockaded.?

Sounds admirable doesn’t it?

Well…uhmm..no…it was a lie.

The Washington Post explains:

Pro-Palestinian activists aboard a Swedish vessel tried and failed to punch through Israel?s maritime blockade of Gaza this week. Israeli commandos boarded the vessel, searched the ship and brought it to an Israeli port.

The Israeli military called the operation ?uneventful.? According to a report, Israel?s Channel 2, one of the activists was zapped with a taser. The foreign activists were detained and are being deported.

In the scope of Middle East confrontations, it was a minor, though publicized, affair.

Afterwards, Israel?s defense minister Moshe Yaalon said, ?there was no aid on board? the activist ship. ?? Read more »

ISIS affiliates at war with Hamas and rocketing Israel

The bizarro world of ISIS and jihadi scumbags has just got weirder.

They have moved into Gaza and are having a demarkation dispute with Hamas who are none too happy that their little reign of terror is being challenged.

They are busily killing each other…and in defiance?the ISIS affiliates rocketed Ashdod… because they are Jews presumably?

The Islamist group that fired rockets at southern Israel Wednesday night said Thursday that it would continue its ?way of Jihad? and ?attack the Jews? – whether or not Hamas approved. And the next attack, it said, would come within hours.

In a statement, the ?Sheikh Amar Hadid Brigades? said that the rockets were fired in revenge for ?the death of an Islamic State?member in Gaza by Hamas members.”

“We have repeated that we will continue in the way of Jihad against the Jews, the enemies of Allah. No one will stop us from fulfilling our obligation and attacking the Jews.?

Several days ago, the same jihadist?group took responsibility for the firing of a Grad rocket at Ashdod last week.

The group has since presented Hamas with an ultimatum demanding that it be allowed to attack Israel from Gaza and on Thursday said it would conduct another attack on the Jewish state within 12 hours. ? Read more »
