My hand is messed up, so not much today

Mainly links.
In a special meeting of the Security Cabinet it was disclosed that a group of 40 people on board the Mavi Marmara with no identification papers belong to Al Qaeda. The terrorists were equipped with bullet proof vests, night-vision goggles, and weapons.
In footage captured on the Mavi Marmara, activists are seen attacking the soldiers with a stun grenade, a box of plates, and water hoses as the soldiers attempt to board the ship. the activists are also waiving around metal rods and chains later used to attack the soldiers with.

I've heard the name Tavis Smiley, didn't know what a bigoted asshat he is.

Postal match!

Two Turkish activists were reported to be among those killed in the flotilla. Ankara warned that further supply vessels will be sent to Gaza, escorted by the Turkish Navy, a development with unpredictable consequences.

I’ll make a prediction:

Most likely, the Turks will soon be told or will otherwise figure out how stupid their idea of letting their navy get used by terrorists is and forget they ever mentioned it.

Otherwise, these two options are placed on the table.

1: The Israelis will let the ships through, and then search search them. When the weapons are found, Turkey will get all red-faced and “We didn’t know about those.” and stop letting terrorists use their navy as dupes.

2: The Israeli Navy will deftly cruise between the Turks and the pirate vessel and the first Turk ship to fire upon an Israeli ship will soon see the bottom of the Med. After that, is where it actually get unpredictable.

news math: (Nazi - competence) x (PR savvy + hipster wardrobe) = Palestinian peace activist

And now family things to deal with, see you later

#2. No doubt.

Four. At least.

3) Israelis inspect the ships after docking, and find weapons. The Turks say "We didn't know about that. We'll make sure it doesn't happen again." And snicker into their sleeves while they prepare another load -- this time with the weapons slightly-better-concealed.

4) Israelis inspect the ships after docking, and find weapons. The Turks say, "Yes, we sent those weapons and we're proud of it. We wanted to help our Palestinian brothers and sisters in their war against the Zionist invaders."
