It is a Crime to attack a ship on International Waters. Israel Doesn’t own it. Due to this blockade, 60% of the Children in Gaza have anemia, the entire Palestine Economy has collapsed.

When the blockade was first imposed, the Israel Prime Minister’s top aid – The purpose is to put the Palestine people on Diet.

Here’s what Glenn had to say about his appearance..

I was just on MSNBC talking about Israel, the Gaza blockade and the flotilla attack with Eliot Spitzer, who was guest-hosting for Dylan Ratigan. It was a rather contentious discussion, though quite illustrative of how Israel is (and is not) typically discussed on American television, so I’m posting the whole 8-minute segment below. Two points: (1) before I was on, Spitzer had on an Israel-defending law professor, followed by Netanyahu’s former Chief of Staff, and both of them (along with Spitzer) were spewing pure Israeli propaganda in uninterrupted and unchallenged fashion; at the end of Spitzer’s discussions with them, he asked them to “stick around just in case,” and once I was left, he brought at least one of them back on to respond to what I said without challenge; (2) literally 90 seconds before my segment was about to begin, the new cam and sound system I just acquired stopped working, forcing me to unplug everything and use only my laptop cam and mic, which caused the technical aspects to be less than ideal (though still perfectly workable)

    That's such a bullshit move, equating Hamas, a terrorist organization which has forcibly stolen control of Gaza, to Israel, an actually democratically elected government. Listening to Greenwald, youd think that Hamas was purely a democratic government, he doesn't mention that Hamas slaughtered their political opponents as soon as they came into power.

    Good lord I've yet to see a more useful idiot for speading Islamist propaganda & lies than Greenwald. Spitzer is a wise man (& ladies man) whose common sense & knowledge of actual facts slaughtered him from every angle. Spitzer for prez in 2016 plz

    Every time I hear another high-horsed moralist whine about Israel putting down putting down Palestinians, I feel the need to quote my favorite leader, Emperor Palpatine, "Wipe them out. All of them"

    Anyone who supports hamas and ignores their murderous record, is the opposite of a genius. Glenn greenwald comes off as an uninformed idiot when he supports hamas. They would murder a gay Jew like GG in a heartbeat. Why does he support them? Money.

    I just want to point out that this type of view is tunnel vision.

    Please note that Greenwald did not say he supports Hamas as an institution. He did not profess that Hamas actions have been moral. He only said that Hamas was democratically elected by the people in Gaza. The point is that most elected leadership in the world including the US and including many developed countries also have abhorrent "murderous records," equally ignored and in most cases suppressed by these same leaders.

    Aye!

    Greenwald is spreading humanist propaganda.

    He did not say that he agrees with Hamas's views or actions.
    The only thing he defends are human beings that are being purposely isolated into experiencing hellish living environments and malnutrition.

    He did not defend Islam or any other religion. He was arguing for lives, that's it. Just because he says the Israeli government was wrong does not mean he believes the conduct of other elected governments are right.

    Spitzer pays for sex.

    Aye!

    GG is spot on with his remarks on this subject, although Noam Chomsky and Norman Finkelstein are the true intellectual heavy weights when it comes to debating the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.  Check out Chomsky's debate with Alan Dershowitz at the Kennedy School of Gov't in 2005 and/or Norman Finkelstein's debate with Alan D. on Democracy Now in 2010.

    The U.S. is all for free and democratic elections. Unless those elected are not our friends.Once Hamas won elections they were "Terrorists". Egypt was Democratic?Okay! Mubarak must have been a godlike person to have been re-elected every cycle for 30 years. We kept him in power because Israel said he's okay. That says we're Israel's bitch.
