VIOLENCE ABOARD THE MAVI MARMARA COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED
by Richard Douglas
(Jun. 1, 2010) — The United Nations is constantly trying to drag the nations into the present-day “religious wars” that are raging throughout the world. The United Nations needs to address a “separation of church and state” in its dealings with the nations of the world. The United Nations cannot become sympathetic to one religion or another in the course of conducting international business. The UN should not be in the business of setting up theocracies.
Israel has a responsibility to itself and the Palestinians to protect both from the actions of terrorists who want to keep tensions in the area high to accomplish terrorist political agendas which include the dismantling Israel.
Palestinians are without any structured government that would provide the basic needs for the everyday life of a country. The Palestinians lack leaders who can be contacted and negotiated with to conduct daily government business. Hamas claims they are the army of Palestine and many would be “peaceful.” However, Palestinians live in fear of Hamas reprisals. Even so, Palestine lacks the infrastructure of a normal government. Israel has had to fill the gap for the non-existent government to help protect any “peaceful” Palestinians.
Hamas is a reality in Gaza and is openly pursuing the violent destruction of Israel. Hamas is using psychological warfare techniques to such as unwarranted attacks on Israel to trigger the physiological reaction of the “fight or flight response.”
This fundamental physiologic response forms the foundation of modern-day stress medicine. The “fight or flight response” is our body’s primitive, automatic, inborn response that prepares the body to “fight” or “flee” from perceived attack, harm or threat to our survival.
The “fight or flight response” has been used as a weapon throughout time to bring fear and stress to the enemy’s camp. Terrorists rely heavily on activating this physiological response by the use of psychological warfare.
Pro-Palestinian Groups purposely antagonize Israel
Greta Berlin of the Free Gaza Movement, which organized the flotilla, said another cargo boat was off the coast of Italy en route to Gaza. A second boat carrying about three dozen passengers is expected to join it, Berlin said. She said the two boats would arrive in the region late this week or early next week.
“This initiative is not going to stop,” she said from the group’s base in Cyprus. “We think eventually Israel will get some kind of common sense. They’re going to have to stop the blockade of Gaza, and one of the ways to do this is for us to continue to send the boats.”
This sort of activist becomes a terrorist and is initiating psychological warfare when they attack a country without being an official Ambassador of the country they are implying they are helping. The proper thing for an activist to do would be to contact Israel in this case and find out the proper protocol for carrying out such a task but not to just antagonize governments into armed conflict. Is Greta Berlin the self-proclaimed Admiral of the Palestinian Navy? Greta Berlin’s actions in bypassing Israeli protocol make her a terrorist and a supporter of Hamas and not the Palestinian people.
Israel sent commandos onto the six ships carrying nearly 700 activists after mission organizers ignored the government’s weeks-long call to bring the cargo to an Israeli port, where it would be inspected and transferred to Gaza. In most cases, the passengers quickly surrendered. But on the largest ship, the Turkish-flagged Mavi Marmara, the forces encountered resistance.
If every government involved in this ordeal had followed Israeli protocol, this encounter could have been avoided. This is when the activists became terrorists. This is when the activists attacked Israel with psychological warfare to activate the psychological response of “fight or flight” in all those involved.
Every government which backed the actions of the flotilla activists without demanding that they follow strict Israeli protocol used psychological warfare to escalate tensions in that region.
