The Gaza Freedom Flotilla Massacre: The IDF Retracts Their Bogus Claim That Gaza Flotilla Passengers Were "Al Qaeda Terrorists"!

It seems that there is constant back-pedaling now on the part of the Israeli Government, and their shills in media outlets all over the world in regards to their bogus claims about the Gaza Freedom Flotilla. More and more they have been sticking their feet in their mouths with the constant lies and falsehoods in trying to somehow justify their unprovoked murder of innocent people on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla on May 31st, 2010.

Here is one major example of these criminals being caught in a lie, and being forced to rescind their false claims to justify their murder of 20 innocent people in the flotilla. Here is one of the latest articles coming from an excellent news source: www.uruknet.info, where the fantastic BS claim by the IDF that the passengers were members of "Al-Qaeda" has been quietly withdrawn by the criminal Israelis themselves. Here is that article

Under Scrutiny, IDF Retracts Claims About Flotilla’s Al Qaeda Links

Max Blumenthal

June 3, 2010

When placed under journalistic scrutiny, the IDF is being forced to admit that its claims about the flotilla’s links to international terror are based on innuendo, not facts. On June 2, the IDF blasted out a press release to reporters and bloggers with the shocking headline: "Attackers of the IDF soldiers found to be Al Qaeda mercenaries." The only supporting evidence offered in the release was a claim that the passengers "were equipped with bullet proof vests, night vision goggles, and weapons." A screen capture of the press release is below:

The IDF distributed this press release on June 2. The following  day, it changed the headline, essentially retracting its lurid  accusation.

Not content to believe that night vision goggles signal membership in Al Qaeda, Israel-based freelance reporter Lia Tarachansky and I called the IDF press office to ask for more conclusive evidence. Tarachansky reached the IDF’s Israel desk, interviewing a spokesperson in Hebrew; I spoke with the North America desk, using English. We both received the same reply from Army spokespeople: "We don’t have any evidence. The press release was based on information from the [Israeli] National Security Council." (The Israeli National Security Council is Netanyahu’s kitchen cabinet of advisors).

Today, the Israeli Army’s press office changed the headline of its press release (see below), basically retracting its claim about the flotilla’s Al Qaeda links. The new headline reads: "Attackers of the IDF Soldiers Found Without Identification Papers" (the top of the browser screen still contains the original headline about Al Qaeda). The more Israel’s claims about the flotilla’s terrorist links are challenged, the more they fall apart.

After admitting "there is no evidence" to back up its  claim about the flotilla's Qaeda links, the IDF quietly changed the  headline of its press release.

NTS Notes: I guarantee that many of the other lies put forward by these criminals will quickly disappear, or be quietly removed from news sources.

It is the criminal Israeli hope that this entire murderous episode disappears eventually and the world's attention will be diverted elsewhere. Therefore it is up to us to make sure that they do not get away with this murder of innocent lives.

More to come

NTS, I believe the ship Rachel Corrie is still heading for the Lunatic State of Apartheid Israel's international waters murder zone.

Appropriate when you consider their murder of the young American Peace Worker, Rachel Corrie.

I have a feeling there will be more Peace Flotillas coming to the aid of the Palestinian people the Lunatic State of Apartheid Israel has been slowly genociding for the past 62 years.

Thanks for the post.
