31. Sometimes I am ashamed to be German...
Yaron ,   Germany   (06.06.10)
32. Itbah el yahud- is like "we have nothing against Jews"
they have nothing against Jews or Israel, only against the occupation? Tell that to all the Jewish victims of terrorism in Gaza- or to those who were bombe after the Israelis went out of Gaza in 2005
33. #25 - weapons only on the Turkish ship
William ,   Israel   (06.06.10)
hence the reason they opposed getting caught by the IDF while the other ships peaceful surrendered and their aid was passed on to Gazans.
34. Try walking around Gaza on your own as identifiable Jews
avraham ,   nyc   (06.06.10)
I want to see how long you'll last, confused liberals
35. Treason
Arik ,   Guivat yearim Israel   (06.06.10)
Those traitors don't make me laugh, they help our enemies, are proud of it, and don't even think to help the poors in Israel instead. Those self hating Jews, are antisemites but are so stupid they don't even realize it. If Hitler was in power they would do their best to help him in order to be loved by him...Poor idiots, a bullet for treason would be too kind for them.
36. How misguided...
Michael Steiner ,   Bahrain   (06.06.10)
"[...]Hamas leader) Ismail Haniyeh [...] turned to me and said they have nothing against Jews or Israel, only against the occupation." Um, "occupation" of what exactly? And, if 7amas has nothing against Israel, why does it refuse to recognize us? What a liar. Typical Arabush.
37. did they sail to protest Sbarro? Seder bomb? Buses? Admona?
sifter   (06.06.10)
38. Everyone is getting on the bandwagon
Tzippi ,   Sydney, Australia   (06.06.10)
They should team up with Sheikh Hilaly, imam of the largest mosque in Sydney. He says he is going to organize with Australian muslims an Australian aid ship to Gaza. I don't think they will be happy to have Jews joining them and these German Jews would be naive enough to realize that Islamists would not have them. Or maybe they will, Hamas and Islamists are looking for more useful idiots
39. God bless them
Mary ,   Seattle, USA   (06.06.10)
I admire the decision and resolve of these people. It is not easy to stand against your community because your consience dictates that you do so. Perhaps they will suceed where others have failed. Perhaps they will help some Israelis to see Palestinians as human, and vice versa. God bless them because they are making hope. And if they are fools, sometimes God holds a fool especially dear.
40. Jewish flotilla to break Gaza siege
miket ,   israel   (06.06.10)
this article has interrupted my whole evening of rromance. I had a great session with Chevas, drinking about 1/4 of it...maspik! afterwards i went to my computer and saw this!! back to the bottle? ( good idea). YNet should find better things to post and not scare us Sabas back to the bottle after a quick snort ! .... Unless of course this article is in the interest of Am Israel.... then I approve. ~sabaMikeBen68+
41. I am at a loss for the cynical hurt this will do to Israel .
Lee ,   Manchester UK   (06.06.10)
the legitimate homeland of the Jewish people. What is wrong with these people, don;'t they realise that if Israel ever is (God forbid) out of the way Jews around the world will be hunted down by islamic terror groups and murdered just the same way. They are insane, i hope they can live with themselves. Israel must find all the names of these people and prevent them from EVER travelling to Israel.
42. what do you expect...
not surprised   (06.06.10)
...what do you expect from jews who choose to live in germany of all places, when they have the option of living in their homeland, that their murdered forefathers prayed to return home since time immemorial?
43. The German Navy should protect this Jews in International wa
Saga Reed ,   London UK   (06.06.10)
it's their duty.
44. german jews escorted by Aryan Iranian RG
american jew ,   los angeles   (06.06.10)
shall be great flottila that will break the illegal blockade against Gaza israel wouldn't dare provokr Iran israel would not dare kill german jews like it kill the turks As a free jew I am all for it
45. Do they like Christians ?
Serge ,   Antwerp, Belgium   (06.06.10)
"He turned to me and said they have nothing against Jews or Israel, only against the occupation." And you believed him ? Hams doesn't like Christians, they blowed up a Christian library and killed its owner. So why would they like Jews. Edith Lutz, You are so stupid and so naive !
46. trade these "Jews" for Gilad Schalit
abe ,   Jerusalem Israel   (06.06.10)
If they insist on living in Germany they have a screw missing anyway. I would much rather give them up to Hamas and get Gilad back
47. good job
natenyahoooooooo ,   usa   (06.06.10)
may be they should run the government too.
48. She has two misunderstandings
Israeli   (06.06.10)
1. the commandos shot ONLY because they were attacked with clubs and knives. Other ships had no issues. 2. Jews are not treated very well in Gaza. I know Jews in Gaza (Jews married to Muslims) and they complain of some Muslims treating them very badly and as potential spies. Obviously the Jews on the ship would be treated well but many Gazans have deep suspicions and anger towards Jews.
49. #2&4 you are Paranoid no body want to kill
tea man ,   marjayoun   (06.06.10)
jews this is used to get you paranoid to recruit you in a cause well this cause has failed and you are alone facing un called for fears so get out of your cocon and join the flotilla to free Gaza
50. Jews Demonstrating Courage
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (06.06.10)
"Courage is not a man with a gun in his hand. It's knowing you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do." - spoken by Atticus Finch, by Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
51. It is you that hasn't learnt
oneki I ,   Leeds UK   (06.06.10)
There is a problem with weapons.. no doubt, but how is the blockade making any difference except increasing the number of people who continue to hate israel. Isreal depends on palestinians to help spy on hamas but how will this blockade help. Peace can only be achieved when both sides show a "little weakness" but i guess you are not counting on that. you just want the hate to continue.
52. #24 I doubt you're Palestinian
Cynthia ,   USA   (06.06.10)
Cheap name calling and insults is a smokescreen. I once knew an Islamic supremacist from the UK, originally from Saudi Arabia, who repeatedly referred to Jews as khazars. She saw it as a way to marginalize Jewish history in order to elevate Islam. Rather pathetic don't you think?
53. Hard to figure out how these people think....
Malone ,   Hfx   (06.06.10)
....they way too much time on their hands...I guess this is the latest "cause"... Go save a whale ....
54. Jews try to hold Israel to Highier standard????
Rubi Koren ,   New york city   (06.06.10)
Shame, the same Jews that blink an eye when on the early 40th. are doing the same thing again and again. why to hold israel to highier standarts that you holding anyone else. i.e Iran, Turkey,China.
55. US groups flotilla trying for July 4th maybe 100+ boats
Bloodyscot ,   Dallas, Texas   (06.06.10)
This is getting crazier by the day. Groups from both North and South America are trying to get flotilla and supplies together, target date is first week in July in honor of US independents.
56. Kate Leitrer
Marie-Luise ,   Germany   (06.06.10)
Although being Jewsih, Kate Leitrer is a member of the Communist Platform of the Left party, DieLinke. Kommunists, Anti-Israel and pro-Islam.
57. Unbelievable
Rachel   (06.06.10)
I would hope these are just a very small minority of German Jews considering the Flotilla people tried to murder, and shouted "Go back to Aushwitz" at their fellow Jews.
58. Please bring gummibaerchen
Ger   (06.06.10)
and barrels of beer and sauerkraut, along with your oompa oompa tuba band.
59. What is not allowed
John ,   ireland   (06.06.10)
No tinned meat is allowed, no tomato paste, no clothing, no shoes, no notebooks. These will be stored in our warehouses at Kerem Shalom until further notice. Bananas, apples, and persimmons are allowed into Gaza, peaches and dates, and now macaroni (after the American Senator’s visit). These are vital for daily sustenance. But no apricots, no plums, no grapes, no avocados, no jam. These are luxuries and are not allowed. Paper for textbooks is not allowed. The terrorists could use it to print seditious material. And why do you need textbooks now that your schools are rubble? No steel is allowed, no building supplies, no plastic pipe. These the terrorists could use to launch rockets against us. Pumpkins and carrots you may have, but no delicacies, no cherries, no pomegranates, no watermelon, no onions, no chocolate. We have a list of three dozen items that are allowed, but we are not obliged to disclose its contents. This is the decision arrived at by Colonel Levi, Colonel Rosenzweig, and Colonel Segal. Our motto: ‘No prosperity, no development, no humanitarian crisis.’ You may fish in the Mediterranean, but only as far as three km from shore. Beyond that and we open fire. It is a great pity the waters are polluted – twenty million gallons of raw sewage dumped into the sea every day is the figure given. Our rockets struck the sewage treatments plants, and at this point spare parts to repair them are not allowed. As long as Hamas threatens us, no cement is allowed, no glass, no medical equipment. We are watching you from our pilotless drones as you cook your sparse meals over open fires and bed down in the ruins of houses destroyed by tank shells. And if your children can’t sleep, missing the ones who were killed in our incursion, or cry out in the night, or wet their beds in your makeshift refugee tents, or scream, feeling pain in their amputated limbs – that’s the price you pay for harbouring terrorists. God gave us this land. A land without a people for a people without a land. Richard Tillinghast is an American poet who lives in Co Tipperary. He is the author of eight books of poetry, the latest of which is Selected Poems (Dedalus Press, 2010 ), as well as several works of non-fiction
