Sorry for the extended absence, guys. School and Israel activism. You know how it is.
Suffice to say I think all the recent hoo-hah around the Gaza flotillas is utter excrement. It really and truly disturbs me that so many people can watch the video of what went down (assuming they've actually done so) and still fail to see the need for self-defense. Go out and get a new pair of prescription glasses or something. Use binoculars. Geez.
Anyways. The Kurdistan flotilla.
This is definitely something that won't be getting the press coverage it deserves. I guarantee it.
Looks like all the recent Gaza flotillas have inspired a Free Kurdistan movement to emulate them for the people in Kurdistan. I don't know much about the region or its history, except that it's under Turkish control, "occupation". Doubtless many parallels can be drawn between it and the conflict around Israel. Just another example of the double-standards the Jewish state is held to.
And yet I'm sure all the brazen flotilla-bandwagonists won't even give the poor Turkish-oppressed Kurds a second thought. You can forget about international attention.
Hey folks, that's just the kind of world we live in today.
