1. Notice the reason dock workers cited
William ,   Israel   (06.21.10)
Not "we support the protest" but rather "fear for our safety". That gives direct insight to the violence and depravity pro-Palestinian supporters exhibit. They mimic the very violence of the people they support. And, like all of their other retarded actions which are mainly for their own benefit, the world continues on, the Israeli ship docked, goods were delivered, and the ship workers got to rest for 24 hours before their next shift. Yawn!
2. Californiastan?

5. They should be arrested and send in jail

6. Denouncing Israel in its war against Hamas.
Ron B. ,   Lod   (06.21.10)
Criticize Israel? Certainly. But those who so loudly denounce Israel in its war against Hamas are siding with some of the most virulent Jew-haters on earth. They may tell themselves that doesn’t make them anti-Semites. But it does. “When people criticize Zionists,” Martin Luther King said in 1968, “they mean Jews. You are talking anti-Semitism.” More about the poor oppressed “Palestinians” at :
7. WOW. way to go USA. I AM PROUD

8. What a surprise...
Ben ,   NYC   (06.21.10)
Paying the union money not to show does alot of things, including big unions! Losers dock people! You should be a shame!!
9. Lies Lies Lies
EITAN   (06.21.10)
Palestinians elected Hamas support him Hamas seeks to destroy Israel
10. :: #7Proud not to protest genocidal Iran,Sudan,Syria,Turkey?
Matty Groves ,   Fairport::   (06.21.10)
11. This turned into an impotent outing
iObserver and News ,   USA   (06.21.10)
All the 'protestors' could muster were 500 muslim liberals and who knows what else. Less than 200 showed up in the afternoon; this idot called it a boycott (it was a picket line) and the workers didn't unload out of fear for their personal safety. This was a major FAIL and the 'organizers' were humiliated since they accomplished NOTHING but making idiots out of themselves. Only in northern California could something like this happen. However, I am a bit upset with the governor for not clamping down on these nuts; they don't even account for a fraction of a fraction of a negative percent of the tiny amount of losers in the US. Its just news because of the liberal press; it means nothing.
12. what did we gained from Gaza flotilla raid except problems?
Turan   (06.21.10)
i think preventing ships to reach Gaza wasnt that benefit for israel !!
13. #7 Bay Area Moonbats
Cynthia ,   USA   (06.21.10)
Richard Becker obviously didn't watch the videos of knife wielding, iron pipe beating, grenade throwing IHH jihadi lynch mobs attacking Israeli soldiers. Proud to be an idiot!
14. Shame on the American longshoremans' union!
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (06.21.10)
These are the same protesters who support the same Palestinians who scream "Death to America" and cheer whenever Americans are killed in Islamic terrorist attacks. Shame on the American union workers for being cowards and not standing up to these shmucks.
15. No Doubt .. the ship contained arms and munitions..
RJBH ,   Methil   (06.21.10)
Bless them that they make their protest.
16. terrorism on American soil
nadav   (06.21.10)
these communists and jihadist islamofascists are introducing terror politics to america. the US should ban Muslim immigration and prevent it from becoming another Eurabia!
17. What a cute little protest....
lara ,   Australia   (06.21.10)
Now how does it feel to be the victim of a blockade and belittled before the world? Does it make you want peace, or does it make you want to attack the people who deny you your freedom? That's how you make the people of Gaza feel, only they're 1 million times more angered then you are right now. Because unlike the Gaza blockade, this one hurt only your ego and reputation, not your liberty.
18. #15
SS ,   Australia   (06.21.10)
You are an idiot. It could have been medical equipment/supplies that could save your family, What a loser.
19. Islamo-Marxist alliance at work
Sue ,   Los Angeles   (06.21.10)
A.N.S.W.E.R. (Communists) and the Muslims...they are always together at anti-Israel protests. I wonder where they got all the protesters. Is UC Berkeley on summer break?
20. Why did they cover their faces?
me   (06.21.10)
Why did they cover their faces? They are peace activists?? Or terrorists??? What are they afraid of??
21. #7 American
Yehudi ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (06.21.10)
Are you also proud of your anti-Jewish, anti-Israel, racist attitudes? Do your rejoice when rockets fall into Israeli kindergartens? How about when Arabs blow up buses and restaurants? Oh American, you have so much to be proud of.
22. Knowledge & Awareness
A Jerusalemite ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (06.21.10)
This is a legal and acceptable form of protest in the USA. Many of them are not Muslims. The problem is not in the protest, but in the education of these young people and of our PR. If the truth were known to them, they would not have behaved as they did. How can we improve out PR to get the truth across? That is the problem.
23. Weather looks great in Oakland no?
Morda-chai ,   Jerusalem   (06.21.10)
That guy is a moron; you can smell the lack of deodorant from here. But the weather looks great. Nice breeze + smelly protesters...meh
24. #15 to Dick in Methil
Mark ,   Lodz, Poland   (06.21.10)
These protesters are no doubt still using Israeli technology and/or components in their daily lives...cell phones, PCs, laptops etc. They are hypocrites, Dick ..and you blessing them, makes you one too. If you're going to boycott it properly.. impact your lifestyle and regress.
25. Arabs are.....
The protesters are bunch of hypocrites that protest on a soil of a nation that yesterday killed innocent women and children, as part of targeted killing in Afghanistan and waved flags of a nation that killed yesterday 9 Kurdish freedom fighters.
26. why didn't they protest
the thousands murdered by Obama in his illegal Afghan occupation? Did Afghans ever attack the US? Did Afghans ever threaten to destroy America? No, these protestors are racists who think that only Arab lives matter.
27. There must not be a requirement...
to be inteligent to have a microphone... What a bunch of lies.... Interesteing how liberals are fighting for dictatorships instead of supporting democracies..
28. israel allways the loosser number one
ali   (06.21.10)
29. Save the civilians!!!
Ilana   (06.21.10)
Ships should blocked from countries where gays are executed , where women are beaten for talking to a male or for showing their faces, for child brides and for the millions of moslems murdered everywhere by their fellow moslems. They also deserve human rights!!! For civilians murdered by Turkish, for civilians massacred in Kyrgyzstan, for Tibetans in China, for executions against civilians in Zimbabwe....
30. #2 Sort your mess and crimes on your own
Josh ,   NY   (06.21.10)
People who are protesting look rather Anglo-Saxon than Middle Eastern Semitic Arabs. Israel must realize that all world is now criticising them. Israel is turning into Apartheid South African regime who remained lonelier and lonelier in international stage and eventually broke up. Instead of attacking all over as a stupid little child, Israel must grow up, accept that its policies are criminal and wrong. Otherwise, Israel is turning into a medieval state, Israel is making Jews embarrassed.
