As everyone who has not been living under a rock knows by now, the bumbling clowns of the Israeli Disgrace Forces boarded the terrorist vessel Mavi Marmara on Monday, as part of a window dressing “operation” designed to provide the appearance of “blockading” Gaza. As result of the utter incompetence and total disregard for the lives of Jewish soldiers displayed by the Israeli high command, numerous Jews were unnecessarily injured. Only by the grace of Hashem none were killed.
The battalion-sized Islamic guerrilla element embarked aboard the Mavi Marmara suffered very light losses. A mere nine Moslem guerrillas were killed. Some twenty five were seriously injured. The rest of the enemy were merely detained and will receive a free ticket home courtesy of Israel’s taxpayers. As was the plan from the beginning, the supplies aboard the enemy ships will be carefully offloaded and sent on to Hamas in Gaza. Thus the Islamic enemy receives both the supplies he wanted and a major victory at no cost whatsoever.
The goyshe reaction to this pathetic display of Israeli weakness, cowardice and incompetence has been exactly the same as it would have been to a proper blockade enforcement operation. Had Israeli aircraft and missile boats sunk the Mavi Marmara and accompanying enemy vessels without warning and with total loss of life, the same goyshe condemnations, calls for sanctions and accusations of high seas piracy would have followed. Thus Israel has accomplished by means of its weak bumbling exactly the opposite of what its leaders ostensibly intended.
The footage of the confrontation aboard the Mavi Marmara shows that the entire operation from beginning to end was meticulously planned and flawlessly executed by the Islamic guerrillas. The strike company embarked aboard the vessel can be clearly seen deploying in squad-sized elements, with each element assigned an Israeli soldier to attack. Designated personnel were also set aside to attack the helicopter by firing flares at it and by tying the rope used to drop the commandos to the ship.
The purpose of the latter action is to cause unexpected force to be exerted on the helicopter, hopefully causing the pilot to either lose control and crash or overcompensate, snapping the rope. The recoiling end of the snapped rope could then seriously damage the helicopter. In the worst case, it could entangle rotor blades, again causing a crash. While the extensive training of the Israeli pilots and aircrew makes it highly unlikely that such a simple technique would cause a crash or serious damage to the helicopter, had it succeeded tense moments would have undoubtedly ensued until the crew chief could cut the rope. Injury to the crew chief would have been highly likely as well.
Islamic strike company personnel were well armed with weapons appropriate to the planned riot mission. The vast majority of weapons were “legal” tools and supplies, such as pipes, kitchen knives, souvenir daggers, hammers, axes, wrenches, etc. In addition, there were at least two snipers deployed with the strike company. Secondary weapons consisted of the usual rioters’ assortment of flares, firebombs and high-powered slingshots. The personnel of the strike company were provided with body armor. While most only had improvised armor in the form of life jackets, bulletproof vests were also issued to key personnel. Select personnel were equipped with night vision devices. Provision for the use of tear gas by the Israelis was likewise made. Every member of the strike company was issued a gas mask. Designated personnel were also no doubt assigned to pitch the snipers’ weapons overboard if the snipers themselves were unable to do so.
It is also clear that the rest of the guerrilla battalion and the various “activists”, propagandists and terrorist wannabes aboard the vessel were not informed regarding the detailed riot plan. Doing so would have only caused them to leak this information and spoil their “genuine” surprise and outrage. In fact, efforts were made to control the locations of the “independent” propagandists and “activists” in order to ensure that most never saw and filmed the initiation of the violence. Instead, their purpose in the operation was to film the casualties, render first aid, rush to shield retreating strike company members and film violence in progress as the strike company retreated. The actions of this large group of “independent” support personnel was well managed by guerrilla organizers imbedded among them and by the second-tier members of the guerrilla battalion embarked aboard the ship.
Overall, the planned riot aboard the Mavi Marmara was a textbook guerrilla operation that accomplished all of its goals at minimal cost. Israel has been delegitimized further. Internal Israeli debate has been focused on making future self-defense actions weaker. Egypt has announced a temporary opening of the border with Gaza. Israel has announced additional shipments of “aid” to further strengthen Hamas. Islamic forces throughout the world have been buoyed by the overwhelming victory over the Israelis and the inspirational footage of Israeli soldiers being clubbed to the deck, thrown off the ship and jumping overboard to save themselves from all but certain death. Goyshe governments are calling for sanctions. Goyshe political organizations are calling for boycotts and divestment. Goyshe commentators are calling for American and European warships to attack the Israeli navy in order to break the laughable “blockade”. Global attention has been distracted from the Iranian nuclear program. And there are more ships on the way.
The Islamic guerrillas involved displayed a high level of professionalism, dedication to duty and excellent discipline. This is not a surprise given that the operation was undertaken by the trained professionals of the IHH, with the overt support of the Turkish government. The commanders of the operation will certainly receive commendations for their work.
More importantly, even though they displayed utter incompetence, lack of professionalism and dereliction of duty, virtually all the Israeli commanders and politicians involved in this fiasco will certainly keep their jobs. Benjamin Netanyahu (y”sh), Ehud Barak (y”sh) and all their hangers-on will go on to endanger more Jewish lives. They will murder more Jews. They will use the excuse of “international pressure” caused by this incident to again attack the dati leumi, with genocidal intent. To explain their treasonous actions, they will claim that they need to “mollify America and world public opinion”. And the Jewish lemmings of the Holy Land will swallow this fairy tale once again, hook, line and sinker. No doubt they will keep buying it even as Israeli forces are demolishing Ariel and Ma’aleh Adumim.
Now that we have summarized our observations, what lessons can we learn from this incident?
The first lesson to note is that Jews wishing to ensure the continued survival of the Jewish People in Eretz Yisrael should adopt the same tactics displayed by the Islamic guerrillas. Just like the Israelis crumble and bumble in the face of Islamic guerrillas, they will crumble and bumble in the face of Jewish guerrillas. Just as casualties among Islamic guerrillas are minimal, so will the casualties among the Jewish guerrillas be minimal. Just as the outcome of confrontations between Israeli security forces and Islamic guerrillas will always play well in the Islamic audience and ultimately serve to strengthen the Islamic guerrillas, so the outcome of confrontations between Israeli security forces and Jewish guerrillas will ultimately play well in the Jewish audience and strengthen the Jewish guerrillas.
The second lesson to note is that the Israelis are playing to lose. Even before the confrontation began, the Israelis already agreed to allow the flotilla’s cargo into Gaza. And even as rockets are daily fired from Gaza into Israel, the Israelis continue to supply Gaza with food, electricity and war materiel. The Israelis also continue to make regular transfers of cash to Hamas via the Palestinian Authority. Every effort is being made by the Israelis to weaken their own position and strengthen the position of Hamas. This is being done specifically so that the strengthened position of Hamas can be used to justify additional Israeli attacks against the dati leum under the pretext of the “peace process”. As an added bonus, it is hoped that Islamic terror attacks will fall disproportionately on the dati leumi communities in Yosh due to their proximity to large, illegal Islamic squatter camps such as Jericho and Ramallah.
The third lesson to learn from this fiasco is that the State of Israel no longer has any senior military officers fit to lead troops in battle. If the decision is made to send men armed with nothing but paintball guns and a few pistols to take control of a ship manned by a battalion of Islamic guerrillas, sailing under the auspices of a well known Islamic terrorist organization, then it is obvious that the people making this decision are not fit to command a latrine detail. And since the troops sent were none other than Shayetet-13, an elite commando force, it stands to reason that they are commanded by some of the best officers Israel is able to muster. We have now seen Israel’s best military minds in action. Behold the fruits of 40 years’ of politically correct misuse of the military and weep!
The final lesson to learn from the Mavi Marmara flows squarely from the first three. Medinat Israel is a dead state stumbling. Any Jew who wants to survive, much less continue living in Eretz Yirael, had better get with the program and support Medinat Yehudah. Separate from the Israelis and live, or keep embracing them and die. The choice is that simple.
