The Mavi Marmara: Another ideological victory over reality

The power of "progressive" ideology triumphs over reality again. The lefties at Fog City are convinced that Israel was in the wrong on the flotilla fiasco, even though the videos of the fatal boarding of the Mavi Marmara clearly show that an armed mob was waiting for the Israeli commandos as they came down the rope from the helicopter. 

Interesting to note that Fog City didn't provide a link to the video showing the mob pouncing on the Israelis and beating them with metal bars. The security cameras on the ship were on before the boarding showing the mob---the video above---getting its weapons ready---the metal bars, broken bottles, slingshots, etc.

Our progressive Board of Supervisors, which naturally shares this delusional sense of reality, has prepared a resolution condemning Israel for its "military attack on the Freedom Flotilla," even though the footage shows the exact opposite.

This resolution will join the shameful resolution the Board of Supervisors passed five years ago calling for a new trial for cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.

As is so often the case, Christopher Hitchens is a good guide to what's happening in the Middle East.

Not surprising that a Turkish journalist cropped knives out of the pictures of the so-called peace activists.
