Associate Editor Of The Jewish Week: Torpedo The Next Flotilla, "Just Sink It"

June 04, 2010 3:47 pm ET — MJ Rosenberg

Israel's attack on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla has been condemned throughout the world.  The country's relationship with Turkey - one of its closest allies and military partners - is on the brink of collapse.  Pressure is mounting, even here in the United States and in Israel itself, for the blockade against Gaza to be lifted. After all, few can credibly argue that Israel's security is somehow enhanced by prohibiting Gazans from importing spices and musical instruments.

But Jonathan Mark, associate editor for the New York-based The Jewish Week, not only supports the Israeli attack, but he has his own ingenuous idea on how to deal with the next relief flotilla.

Next flotilla -- just sink it. Torpedo it. See how many more flotillas follow. The condemnation won't be any different. But you'll stop seeing cowardly western leftists signing up to sail with the terrorists, and you may even dent the number of terrorists who'll want to sail, and you'll see less ship owners willing to lose their boats. Better that than even one more Jew being injured while boarding these floating Jenins.

We are no longer in the general Euopean [sic] anti-Semitism mode but deeper into the run-up (in the Arab mind) to the Final Solution -- the extermination of Israel -- in which a Jew sitting on an Aryan park bench is as much of a criminal as a Jew who robs a bank. We might as well rob the bank. We might as well take out Iran as take out the flotilla.

The Other Side is fearless now. If someone is going to fear anyone, make the bad guys fear Israel. Right now, too many Jews fear the world. Turn the tables. Make the bad guys think that Israel is craziest S.O.B. in the room. Make everyone wonder what the Jews will do. The world will be furious? Imagine that. Imagine winning. All that Jews have done lately far is imagine losing. That has to end.

This is a war. Either win it or surrender now, before any one else gets hurt.

Jonathan needs to get a grip.
