themarxistblog is alone on the left. We are alone in condemning the Woolwich beheading for what it is…an action straight out of the belief and practice of Islam


This Muslim beheading of a British youth and soldier has thrown the whole of this SWP and WSWS/WRP type left into huge crisis.


Note this very well: Karl Marx who many of these groups claim to follow was very opposed to Islam in the most fundamental way possible.


Karl Marx did not write much about Islam but he did write enough. Only a very few intellectuals in the 19th century were writing about Islam and the Koran, one of those being of course Alexis de Tocqueville, who in preparation for a visit to Algeria made an important and time enduring critique of the Koran.


We have already printed what Marx wrote:


“German original:

„Der Islam ächtet die Nation der Ungläubigen und schafft einen Zustand permanenter Feindschaft zwischen Muselmanen und Ungläubigen.“

English translation:

“Islam ostracizes the nation of the unbelievers and creates a state of permanent enemyship between the moslems and the unbelievers.”

– Karl Marx (1818-1883)

(leads to

and to [“New-York Daily Tribune” Nr. 4054 vom 15. April 1854]



…although Marx did not write a lot about Islam, as we can see in the above, he wrote enough.


Marx had pinpointed the anti-humanitarian nature of Islam.


All the great recent studies of Islam by the likes of Spencer, Bat Ye’or and Andrew Bostom point to the deeply anti-humanitarian nature of Islam.



The great writer and opponent of Islam, from an Arab background, Raymond Ibrahim has added a very important addition to our understanding of the Woolwich beheading.


We will quote quite a long piece from this analysis of Raymond Ibrahim of Woolwich. It is of extreme importance for the left and for the future of Marxism. Raymond is not a socialist or Marxist, that matters not one jot, because Raymond like many of these anti-Jihadist writers of today are studying Islam, and their style of writing is TRUTH TO POWER. In other word truth trumps a label.


Why is this of such importance for us on themarxistblog. Answer is because one of the features of Islam in a country like Britain where it has a sizeable MINORITY (THAT IS ABOUT 10 PER CENT) is that it places all of its violence inside a campaign against its supposed victimization.




Still that is not the whole answer. Why is this of such extreme importance for us on themarxistblog? The answer here is that groups such as WSWS, SWP, Workers Liberty, Indymedia Ireland, the old WRP remnant of Torrance, the Stalinist Communist Party offshoots ALL ACT AS AGENTS FOR ISLAM and seek also to portray all of the violence of Islam and Muslim into that envelop of victimisation.


These poor “boys” you see are driven to carry out a beheading of an English youth in broad daylight in an English city because of what English soldiers are doing in Afghanistan.


(Kenny Jones of Talk Radio Europe kept talking on his show about “these lads” in referring to the Muslim beheading knife monsters.

The American journalist Nathan Thomas kept on repeating that Woolwich had nothing to do with Islam…just another crime he kept saying.

May be absurd but that is what is happening)


But it is not just those leftists. The situation complicates itself further because it is also the rulers of the various capitalist states today who carry water for Islam.


Thus Cameron insists day after Islamist peace, Boris Johnson says Islam is peace and the beheading insults Islam, Bush on the morning after 9-11 as he stood in the dust from 3000 plus human bodies stated Islam is peace.


How to break out of this?


This is where the analysis of Raymon Ibrahim helps greatly. Raymond is saying that the way that Islam works is related to how many there are in any particular country.


I once asked a Christian from Pakistan how did the Christians in Pakistan manage to exist in such a Sharia land. He answered me with one unforgettable word “Quietly!”



Here is an extract from Raymond Ibrahim on the indispensable Fox News:


QUOTE Last week in London, two Muslim men shouting jihad’s ancient war-cry, “Allahu Akbar” beheaded a British soldier with a cleaver—in a busy intersection and in broad daylight. They boasted in front of passersby and asked to be videotaped.

As surreal as this event may seem, Islamic beheadings are not uncommon in the West, including the U.S. In 2011, a Pakistani-American who helped develop “Bridges TV”—a station “designed to counter negative stereotypes of Muslims”—beheaded his wife. In Germany in 2012, another Muslim man beheaded his wife in front of their six children—again while hollering “Allahu Akbar.”

Beheading non-Muslim “infidels” in the Islamic world is especially commonplace: in Yemen a “sorceress” was beheaded by the “Supporters of Sharia”; in Indonesia, three Christian girls on their way to school were beheaded; in Syria last Christmas, U.S.-supported rebels beheaded a Christian man and fed his body to the dogs; in Africa—Somalia, Tanzania, Mali—Christians are regularly decapitated. (For a comprehensive picture of Christian suffering under Islam, see my new book, Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians.)

Most recently, a disturbing video surfaced from “liberated” Libya of a machete-wielding masked man hacking at the head of a captive—again, to cries of “Allahu Akbar!”

But the greater lesson of the London beheading concerns its audacity—done in broad daylight with the attackers boasting in front of cameras, as often happens in the Islamic world.

It reflects what I call “Islam’s Rule of Numbers,” a rule that expresses itself with remarkable consistency: The more Muslims grow in numbers, the more Islamic phenomena intrinsic to the Muslim world—in this case, brazen violence against “infidels”—appear.

In the U.S., where Muslims are less than 1% of the population, London-style attacks are uncommon. Islamic assertiveness is limited to political activism dedicated to portraying Islam as a “religion of peace,” and sporadic, but clandestine, acts of terror.

In Europe, where Muslims make for much larger minorities, open violence is common. But because they are still a vulnerable minority, Islamic violence is always placed in the context of “grievances,” a word that pacifies Westerners.

With an approximate 10% Muslim population, London’s butcherers acted brazenly, yes, but they still invoked grievances. Standing with bloodied hands, the murderer declared: “We swear by almighty Allah we will never stop fighting you until you leave us alone…. The only reason we have done this is because Muslims are dying by British soldiers every day.”

Days later in Stockholm, which also has a large Muslim minority, masked rioters destroyed 100 cars and property. The grievance for this particular outbreak was that police earlier shot a(nother) machete-wielding “immigrant” in self-defense.

Grievances disappear when Muslims become at least 35-40% of a nation and feel capable of waging an all-out jihad, as in Nigeria, where the Muslim-majority north has been terrorizing Christians—bombing hundreds of churches and beheading hundreds of infidels.

Sudan was an earlier paradigm, when the Khartoum government slaughtered millions to cleanse Sudan of Christians and polytheists. Historically Christian-majority Lebanon plunged into a deadly civil war as the Muslim population grew….END QUOTE

In a later article we will try to show how the left of today, blackguards against Marx and Marxism all of them, are being thrown into such a crisis by the Woolwich Muslim Beheading…keep tuned into themarxistblog








What about Alawites?

Allah knows what will happen to them. There is a difference between the basic kuffar [infidels] and those who converted from Islam. If the latter, we must punish them. Alawites are included. Even Sunnis who want democracy are kuffar as are all Shia. It’s not about who is loyal and who isn’t to the regime; it’s about their religion. Sharia says there can be no punishment of the innocent and there must be punishment of the bad; that’s what we follow.


The above is an extract from an interview with a Syrian Jihadist printed on clearly showing why Assad is supported. If Assad falls there will be a great killing of Christians and Alawites. Obama and Cameron are on the side of this planned killing, even though they do not plan it, if their policies are followed through that great killing will take place. This means that themarxistblog follows a policy of defence of Assad AGAINST JIHAD but Israel reserves at every point the right to defend itself against Assad.




“The other sects are protected by the Islamic state. Muhammad, peace be upon him, had a Jewish neighbour, for example, and he was always good to him.  But the power and authority must be with the believers [Sunnis], not the unbelievers.” A most revealing interview: “An interview with Jabhat al-Nusra,” from The Economist, May 23:

The interviewee is a young fighter from Jabhat al-Nusra, an extremist Sunni group in Syria affiliated with al-Qaeda in Iraq. A former teacher and then tiler, he is dressed in well-ironed black trousers, a white shirt and a black turban. A gun rests on his lap. He is accompanied by an older man, who appears to be judging him on his answers. Both are Syrian and ask not to be named because they do not have permission to speak to the press.  

How has Jabhat al-Nusra become so powerful?

The reason is the weakening of the other groups. Jabhat al-Nusra gets the advantage because of our ideology. We are not just rebels; we are doing something we believe in. We are not just fighting against tyranny; Bashar Assad is only part of our fight. The other groups are only a reaction to the regime, whereas we are fighting for a vision.

What is that vision?

We are fighting to apply what Allah said to the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. We are fighting so people don’t look to other people but only to Allah. We don’t believe in complete freedom: it is restricted by Allah’s laws. Allah created us and he knows what is best for us.

What future do you see for Syria—or do you even see a Syria in the future?

We want the future that Islam commands. Not a country with borders but an umma [worldwide Islamic community of believers] of all the Muslim people. All Muslims should be united.

Syria has long been known for its sectarian diversity. How do you view the other sects?

The other sects are protected by the Islamic state. Muhammad, peace be upon him, had a Jewish neighbour, for example, and he was always good to him.  But the power and authority must be with the believers [Sunnis], not the unbelievers.

What about other Sunnis who are more moderate than you?

We will apply sharia law to them.

What about Alawites?

Allah knows what will happen to them. There is a difference between the basic kuffar [infidels] and those who converted from Islam. If the latter, we must punish them. Alawites are included. Even Sunnis who want democracy are kuffar as are all Shia. It’s not about who is loyal and who isn’t to the regime; it’s about their religion. Sharia says there can be no punishment of the innocent and there must be punishment of the bad; that’s what we follow.

Did you lose or gain fighters following the announcement that you are linked to al-Qaeda in Iraq?

We’re with anything that represents real Islam, whether al-Qaeda or otherwise. If there is a better group, we’ll go with them instead. The effect of the announcement is that now we know our friends and our enemies. The good people will come to our side and the bad people will leave.

Many, maybe most, Syrians do not share your views. Do you care?

It would be great if the Syrians were with us but the kuffar are not important. Abraham and Sarah were facing all the infidels, for example, but they were doing the right thing. The number with us doesn’t matter.

Which other rebel groups do you see as acceptable? Ahrar al-Sham, another Salafist group, criticised your links to al-Qaeda.

I think only 5% of the battalions are against the Islamic vision. Ahrar al-Sham are a mixture of Islamists and people who like Allah so we are not sure about their vision. We are very clear as the Prophet, peace be upon him, made it very clear to us. Other groups have good beliefs but we are the only committed ones.

Will the differences lead to clashes, as have happened in some places? And how would you react if Western powers decide to arm other rebel groups?

If the arms reach people who will fight Assad and Hizbullah that’s okay. If they use them against us, then that’s a problem. We’ll avoid fighting [other groups] if we can. The West wants to ruin Syria.

How hard is it to become a member of Jabhat al-Nusra?

We examine those who want to join. First you must be loyal to the idea of Jabhat al-Nusra. Second, you must get a recommendation [from someone in the organisation]. Third, you go to a camp to be educated and practice, and take the oath of loyalty to the emir [the group’s leader].

Do you plan to carry out operations against the West in the future?

There is no permanent friendship and no permanent enemy. We’ll do whatever is in the interest of Muslims. The first duty on us is to fight the kuffar among us here in the occupied Muslim lands. The next duty will be decided later.

Do you have contact with the Syrian regime?

If it is in the interest of the Muslims, such as for gas or water, then we have no problem. These matters are in the hands of the emir.

Your presence helps the regime which has long tried to portray the opposition as extremist. What do you think about that?

The regime maybe benefits but in the end we’ll show all humans, Syrian and otherwise, the way, and true Islam.

What are your views of women?

The woman in Islam has a special role. She is respected as a wife, a sister, a mother, a daughter. She is a jewel we should preserve and look after. In the West they gave women freedom but they use them and don’t respect them. The woman is to use in adverts. We don’t have an issue with the woman working according to her mind and body. But not jobs that humiliate. Jewellery is okay on women, but not on men, and not too much. Make up should be just for your husband. You can wear coloured clothes and show your face. [The older man disagrees, saying women should cover their face and hands.]

Shouldn’t men also cover up to avoid women looking at other people’s husbands?

Our women ask the same question. Some men can’t control themselves and the woman is the source. It’s easier to prevent abuse. The men’s role is to go out and work. Man’s brain is bigger than the woman’s—that’s scientifically proven. Men’s brains have different areas for speaking and thinking, but women’s don’t which is why women they say what they think.

What if your interpretation of the Koran is wrong?

There are two types of verse. Firstly ones that are stable and unchanging, such as head-covering. Secondly ones on which people can differ, such as the rule demanding ablution after touching a woman. Does that mean touching her skin or intercourse? Opinions can differ.

Do you consider any Islamists too radical, like the Taliban, for example?

There are people committed to Islam and then those far from it. No one committed is too radical. We haven’t met anyone from the Taliban but they seem good Muslims because they defended their religion and the occupation, they kicked out the enemy and applied sharia.

Did you study religion?

I was poor but I read the Bible, and lots of Jewish and Islamic books. My head and heart told me to accept the Koran and the Sunna [accompanying religious texts]. Islam is different because it has a complete view of life, society, politics, economics—it is a complete system.

We hear there is a split inside Jabhat al-Nusra about your links to al-Qaeda. Do you disagree about that or other matters?

There are small differences, but when we give loyalty, we obey.


The Boston murders were done by immigrants who had been given everything by the host country America…


The Woolwich Muslim Knifemen were immigrants from Nigeria and again had been given everything by the English, including full access to advanced University Education


All immigration into a country is dangerous. Muslim immigration is lethal.


Immigration can very easily be used by a ruling elite which is in economic and political crisis (meaning of course the capitalist system) in order to break down the traditional structure of a nation.

Ending in a nation losing its pride and people becoming even less oppositional and independently minded than sheep


This is what has happened in countries such as Britain, Sweden, France and Norway, but it is very common.


It is also tied in with the overall global crisis in the capitalist system whereby millions of poor seek a way out. And you cannot blame them. But the results can be devastating, results that they do not mean to bring about from their individual viewpoint.


The lethal nature of Muslim immigration is clear when one gets to understand Islam.


The present left such as (but totally widespread) has betrayed socialism. But Marx was correct:


“German original:

„Der Islam ächtet die Nation der Ungläubigen und schafft einen Zustand permanenter Feindschaft zwischen Muselmanen und Ungläubigen.“

English translation:

“Islam ostracizes the nation of the unbelievers and creates a state of permanent enemyship between the moslems and the unbelievers.”

— Karl Marx (1818-1883)


(To find the source place the German in google)

and to [“New-York Daily Tribune” Nr. 4054 vom 15. April 1854]


This is the main problem and although Marx did not write a lot about Islam, as we can see in the above, he wrote enough.


Marx had pinpointed the anti-humanitarian nature of Islam.


All the great recent studies of Islam by the likes of Spencer, Bat Yeor and Andrew Bostom points to the deeply anti-humanitarian nture of Islam.


It was not for nothing that Islam became a clear part of the Holocaust of the Jews, the leader of Islam at the time, the Mufti Husseini, an Arab from Palestine joining Islam for forever time to the Nazis and the Holocaust of the Jews. But Islam had pre-dated and anticipated the Nazis by 1300 plus years.





These Irish state fascists are openly joining with Cameron as he prepares to ban and close down the EDL to try to stem the opposition over the Woolwich Jihad butchery. The Irish capitalists are working closely with this. All of this reactionary activity on the part of governments in power is very closely tied to their anti-Semitism where they are preparing to ban all Israeli produce in Europe. (Meanwhile Kenny Jones on Talk Radio Europe also censors themarxistblog but allows a guy from Portsmouth football club to say that the EDL were the same as the Jihad butchers…I rang Jones 10 times to answer this Portsmouth spokesman for Cameron and the police but he refused to pick up the phone)


Indymedia Ireland has openly closed down the discussion on the Woolwich Murder, censored the views of themarxistblog which called for defence of the EDL against the Cameron Government and pólice, allowed lies against Israel (el Dura) to stand with no reply possible since our view was censored, and then immediately ended the discussion (no more comments allowed!)

QUOTE…”We are currently not accepting any more comments on this article.”


This proves that these Stalinist and Anarchist groups have become Fascist as they toe the line of Hizbullah and Hamas, and they are deep into antisemitism in their total hatred of Israel. Indeed there are Antisemitic Jews who are part of this in Ireland as well.


The comment which Indymedia Ireland cut called clearly for a defence of the EDL against the Cameron Government which seeks to close down the EDL as massive support for the EDL position grows among the English working class, with a very much larger tan usual demonstration in Newcastle.



There is NO DOUBT what the Cameron Government is preparing to do and that is to try to behead (pun not intended!) this growing movement against Islam and Sharia by making it a criminal offense to belong to the EDL.


But in this regard Cameron also has a problem because the EDL is lodged firmly inside the British working class at ground level. Note here that the LABOUR Party and the trade unión LEADERS do not at all represent the English working class movement


In this regard it is most significant that the Indymedia Anarchists of Dublin turn to censoring the views of themarxistblog, which alone represents Trotskyism.


We have sent a message to Indymedia, to the organization which is supported by Indymedia, to go right ahead and apply for membership of the British police service, from there they can be part of the suppression of the EDL.


Indymedia Ireland has actually taken a first step when yesterday they cut the comment of themarxistblog which called for a defence of the EDL, and then ended further comments on the subject. I think this group and groups surrounding Indymedia ireland may now be actually controlled by the Irish police acting alongside of the British police.

Thus problem solved eh…no left to oppose the moves to dictatorship which the banning of the EDL by Cameron would lead to.



The picture int he above is Hizbullah giving the Nazi Fascist salute.

And the picture at the end is the “Palestinian” Arabs meting out their particular Brand of punishment and murder.

But what about this picture in the middle of the Woolwich killer with tolos in hand. These include a hatchet for decapitation purposes, nothing else. As Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs said “Savages”, not “lads” as Kenny Jones of Talk Radio Europe kept saying…



So explain how that butchery is different to the following






The two Muslim terrorists are not yet identified

They were chanting Allahu Akbar

They hacked the victim with knives and a machete and eventually beheaded him

It happened in broad daylight yesterday Wednesday

They held up body parts and shouted “We swear by Allah never to stop killing you.”

They did not flee but wandered around, perhaps waiting for other soldiers to emerge from the barracks some 400 yards away

The London Police arrived after 20 minutes. The Jihadists ran towards them brandishing knives.

They were shot and injured and taken to separate hospitals and placed under heavy guard

This is the first such attack by Jihadists in a Western European capital city.

One journalist has listened very carefully to the video tape and has written down what the Jihadist said, which shows the action is rooted in the Koran. “He says, “Surat at-Tawba through…many, many ayat throughout the Qur’an that…we must fight them as they fight us…”

The Woolwich Jihadist clearly enough refers to “Surat at Tawba and that is precisely what has been left out by all of the capitalist press this morning. But it is significant.

Surat at-Tawba is the ninth chapter of the Qur’an, and according to Islamic scholars is the last one or one of the last ones to have been revealed that contain doctrinal content — which means that it takes precedence over the others. Some highlights:

“And when the sacred months have passed, then kill the polytheists wherever you find them and capture them and besiege them and sit in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they should repent, establish prayer, and give zakah, let them [go] on their way. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.” — 9:5

“Fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people and remove the fury in the believers’ hearts. And Allah turns in forgiveness to whom He wills; and Allah is Knowing and Wise.” — 9:14-15

“Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled.” — 9:29

“O Prophet, fight against the disbelievers and the hypocrites and be harsh upon them. And their refuge is Hell, and wretched is the destination.” — 9:73

“O you who have believed, fight those adjacent to you of the disbelievers and let them find in you harshness. And know that Allah is with the righteous.” — 9:123


It is clear that this is a religious issue rooted in the religion of Islam, as Islam rapidly morphs into the Fascist ideology of today. It is inseparable from Antisemitism and inseparable from the campaign of all of the West behind the Fascist ideology of the “Palestinians” which has grown up since 1967 as a way to créate a new Holocaust.

It is not as the pro-Islamist Stalinist Leftist try to tell us, a “normal” reaction to the war in Iraq, or the war in Afghanistan. It comes straight out of the religion/`political ideology of Islam.

The very first reaction of Bush after the 9-11 atrocity was to say, as he stood in the ashes of that atrocity, that “Islam is a religion of peace”

That will also be the answer of Cameron and the Coalition to this latest atrocity.

The Stalinist Leftists who have been in bed now for a long time with Islam will take a position of arguing that this is just a normal reaction to the wars conducted abroad by Imperialism.

In fact the Stalinist Leftists will echo and back up what the Jihadist killer told the passers-by in Woolwich, that it was a reaction to the wars against “Muslims” abroad.

So far the revisionist fake-Trotskyist group wsws has not responded!!!

It will take a new party that stands in the tradition of Marx and Trotsky, and opposed to Stalinism, to be able to call Islam what exactly it is.

In the meantime the Stalinist Leftists will continue to draw water from the Stalinist well on behalf of Islam Jihad




themarxistblog is challenging the Irish Antisemites

There is important news today from the pen of Pamela Geller of a tie up between Obama, the President of the US, and the killer Jihadists who were on board of the Mavi Marmora. Many of these Antisemites came from Ireland, and this flotilla against Israel, essentially a propaganda exercise, was originated in Ireland which was working closely in partnership with the Muslim Brotherhood. It also emerged later that the CIA was training Jihadists in Ireland so we now know that the CIA had a hand in the Mavi Marmora and the propaganda against Israel which the flotillas represented. There has now emerged a new figure on the scene called Father Dave, his real name is Smith, and he is using the Catholic Church as propaganda, essentially against Jews. Now Pamela has this breakthrough in our understanding. There is a link between the Mavi Marmora and Obama.

There is now a serious link between Obama and the killers on the Mavi Marmora (through his partnership with the Antisemitic Fascist Erdogan)

We wrote much on the Mavi Marmora because this action against Israel ties in the Israel haters in Ireland, people such as Mairead Maguire, the ex-Legion of Mary person from Belfast, who emerged at first as an apologist for “Peace”, but it was a one sided peace which was backed by British Intelligence.


It also ties in the Nazi Fascist Antisemitic Indymedia Ireland outfit which hosts people on its site who refer every second line to “Zio-Nazis”.

it also ties in a new figure called “Father Dave” who is emerging on the scene. About this person I placed this on the Facebook page of Irish4Israel:

Felix Quigley The Indymedia website in Ireland is a cess pool of antisemitism. One person there refers every second line (literally) to “Zio-Nazis”…how can these people get away with this? The Irish are a fair people. It is just that these Antisemites have won control of the narrative, simple as that.
  • Felix Quigley His name is David B. Smith and his links are widespreadd ( How can this liar get away with this? The Christians are being driven out of all áreas of the Middle East by Islam, and the numbers of Christians living in Israel are increasing, because Israel offers a haven for Christians
  • Felix Quigley who is this liar?It would appear that the Israeli government is trying to make life in the ‘Holy Land’ as uncomfortable as possible for Christians. This makes sense in terms of the goal of maintaining Israel as a Jewish state. The problem is that such actions potentially do enormous damage to the country’s traditional religious support base – American Evangelical Christians!

Pamela Geller provides this important information about the way Obama is tied in with the Mavi Marmora through, of course, his Alliance with the main strategist against Israel, Erdogan

White House Jihad: Islamic Supremacist PM Erdogan brings Mavi Marmara Flotilla Jihadist to Meet Obama

Flotilla activist

Jihadist on board the Gaza flotilla holding  a knife after Israel Navy commandos boarded their ship on May 31, 2010.

The armed jihad warship flotilla’s mission was to break the arms blockade to jihadists in Gaza. It was an act of war. It was designed to be a huge  huge public relations diaster for Israel. And it was. The  Jihad Flotillas: Melding Propaganda with Violence, Pamela Geller, Breitbart: “it joined propaganda together with violence,  usually conducted separately, to wage war.”

Weapons-Found-on-Marmara Some of the weapons found on the Mavi Maramara

On May 31st, 2010, a flotilla of ships organized by the Free Gaza Movement and the  Turkish IHH group attempted to break Israel’s naval blockade of the Gaza Strip. Five of the ships were commandeered peacefully by the Israeli  Navy and re-routed to Ashdod. The supplies they carried were delivered  overland to Gaza after a security inspection. (source: IP)

Mavi Marmara Weapons
The Mavi  Marmara described itself as peaceful despite the guns, knives and other  weapons it was carrying to Hamas-controlled Gaza.

As Israeli naval commandos abseiled onto the deck of the fourth and  largest ship, the Mavi Marmara, they were attacked by IHH activists  armed with knives, clubs and at least two pistols. Three of the  commandos were badly wounded and dragged below deck. Others were injured as they were thrown from the upper deck into the sea. The Israeli  commandos had been ordered to take the ship without using lethal force  and were issued primarily with stun guns. In response to the violence  that greeted them and fearing for their lives, the commandos were  ordered to open fire. In the ensuing melee, nine IHH activists were  killed.The  Turkel Committee, an independent public inquiry with international  observers established by the Israeli government to examine events aboard the Mavi Marmara in May 2010, found that the Israeli Navy acted in  accordance with international law and had little choice but to react as  they did when faced with the violent resistance of the IHH activists on  board.

“Each Israeli soldier was attacked as they entered the ship,” Turkel said.  Three of the soldiers were dragged into the ship’s hold and were  prevented from receiving “humanitarian” medical attention.

Who can forget the rabid ululating chanting of the Islamic anthem of Jewish genocidal aspirations, Khaibar, Khaibar, invoking  the killing of Jews? The name Khaibar, mentioned in the   battle cry, was  the last Jewish village defeated by Muhammad’s army in  628. The battle  marked the end of Jewish presence in Arabia. There are  Muslims who see  that as a precursor for future wars against Jews. At  gatherings and  rallies of extremists, this chant is often heard as a   annihilationist  threat to Jews, telling them to expect to be defeated   and killed again  by Muslims.


Jihad vs jew Israel_Defense_Forces_-_Weaponry_Found_Aboard_the_Mavi_Marmara_(4)IDF soldiers who boarded the Mavi Marmara ship in order to enforce  the maritime closure on Gaza, were met with a violent mob armed with  clubs, slingshots, saws, knives, and used live fire against the IDF  soldiers. Pictured here: Slingshots found on the Mavi Marmara ship with Islamic terrorist group “Hizbullah” written on it.

Obama has these blood thirsty savages to the White House.  You have to wonder if America will ever recover from his presidency.

“Wait Until You Hear Who the Turkish Prime Minister Reportedly  Invited to Join His Entourage During U.S. Visit,” by Sharona Schwartz  for The Blaze, May 17 (thanks to Maxwell):

According to Turkish media, the father of one of the radical Islamist activists killed in Israel’s  raid on the Mavi Marmara in 2010 (the Gaza flotilla) was included as an  invited guest in the prime minister’s delegation in the hopes he might  be able to meet President Barack Obama.Furkan Dogan, a 19-year-old with both  Turkish and U.S. citizenship, joined the Gaza flotilla where he  expressed his desire for “martyrdom.” His father now wants the U.S.  government to sue Israel over the raid in which the IDF says its forces  were defending themselves from what appeared to them to be an organized  attack launched by passengers armed with knives and metal bars as the  commandos boarded the ship.
