Swedes demand Israel fix Gaza flotilla ship after court victory

“Last time we had a person who checked the boat, it was maybe one year or nine months ago, the condition of the boat was not good, to put it mildly,” he said in English by phone from his home in Sweden.

“It’s in salt water and we don’t know the condition of the engine, we don’t know the condition of the sails,” he said. “We will demand that the boat will be put into seaworthy condition so we can sail.”

    “We will demand that the boat will be put into seaworthy condition so we can sail.”

    Swedes “demanding!” Who knew they had it in ’em???

  • Justin St.Denis

    These days, Swedes are about as popular as lepers. Amazing that an entire country has no idea of the degree of disgust they inspire in civilized western people.

    Swedes – they continue to exist simply to remind us all of the potential efficacy of genocide.

    from the begining i was for bombing the Shop to hell, if your bomb is larg enough you can say they had weapons on bord, what they actualy had.
    sweden, hmm, the country currently
    castrated while
    raped.

    • FactsWillOut

      If the Israelis would just man up and bomb Gaza to hell, this wouldn’t even be an issue.
      All this BDS crap is a direct result of poor policy on the part of the Israeli admin.

      • vwVwwVwv

        our politicans are military people, they loose in diplomacy, its allways the same.

        • FactsWillOut

          Hmm, I never though about it that way.
          Makes sense, but, as military folk, they should consider the value of MAD, and seriously start investing in more tactical nukes, and maybe even use a few, if the response to dealing with Gaza becomes unbearable.

          • vwVwwVwv

            you have citys larger than israel, dont expect to much.

          • FactsWillOut

            Yes. Geography makes things very difficult for Israel.
            That is why Israel should annex everything from the Golan heights to the Sinai. As Israel currently exists, it is too easy to “wipe it from the map” using just a couple tactical nukes. As I see it, maintaining the current status quo is a guaranteed losing proposition. The lions share of Israeli GDP should go to missile defense, tactical nukes, and so forth.

        israel is not independent, its survival depends on so many things. look.

        you see the lifeline?

        • FactsWillOut

          That’s what nukes are for.
          Admittedly, it’s still a gamble, but less so than the current policies, IMHO.

          • vwVwwVwv

            obama is hostile, eu is hostile, israel wuld have to play the nuke card and this is the most unjewish thing to do, to kill indiscriminently when you are still not
            faceing the anihilation every one around is prommising you .

          • FactsWillOut

            Well, the Jews survived, but a nation state has to be considerably more ruthless to survive. I have no doubt that the Jews will survive for millennia to come, but Israel will not, unless she takes those steps necessary to survive.

          • vwVwwVwv

            you are right but how can jews learn in less than 70 years
            what other nations have livd true millenia. may be you got
            me wrong, i agree with you but israel will not agree with us.

            jews had no state for 2000 years, we need time and i know
            we have no time at all. hillery will be a desaster, dictators will
            do what they want while she will bash israel and other allyes.

          Also, I couldn’t help but notice the calipahte’s intrusion into eastern Europe. Milosovich tried to prevent that, and was pilloried by the “International Court”, as NATO facilitated the Islamic incursion.

          • vwVwwVwv

            i fought in this war, it broke my hart, i just fought people free
            but have seen bad things, it was ungelivable cuz till then
            the jugoslaves happen to be like one people.
            clinton policy, bad to the bones.

  • FactsWillOut

    It occurs to me that it was the Israeli court that decided the ship was impounded illegally.
    It also occurs to me that it is the Israelis who won’t let the Gazans leave. If their security cordon let folk leave but not return, Gaza would slowly depopulate.
    Seems both of these wounds are self-inflicted. Blaming the asshat Swedes is disingenuous.

    • Justin St.Denis

      as if HAMAS a would permit Gazans to leave Gaza!

      I guess you did not hear the announcement that the brown acid is bad…..

      • FactsWillOut

        What you are saying is that Israeli and HAMAS policy are aligned on that particular score.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Just scuttle it.

  • FactsWillOut

    The Israeli justice system is not in the business of putting boats into seaworthy condition.
    If the asshats who tried to run a military blockade with the boat want the boat fixed, they can sue. Making demands of this stripe is typical show-boating, worthy of the morally vacuous, virtue-signaling BDS crowd.

  • ghost of benghazi

    Soon all of Europe will no what it is like to be Israel. They should dismantle it and send it back piece by piece.

  • John

    we don’t know the condition of the sails,

    Yeah, like it looks to be a three-masted schooner.

  • Blacksmith

    Un-moor it, tow it into international waters and drop anchor, whoever get it first can keep it.
