(no)Flytilla

(no)Flytilla

Flytilla 2012 is another stunt in which anti-Israeli activists from Western countries will attempt the air equivalent of the Gaza Flotilla, arriving en masse at Israel’s Ben Gurian airport, ostensibly to make their way to the West Bank.

In reality, it is a publicity stunt done in the hope that hundreds of screaming internationalists could create a made-for-YouTube scene.

As Israel Matzav reported the other day, the protest is scheduled for one of the busiest travel days in Israel:

This Sunday is one of the busiest travel days of the year at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport. It’s the day after Passover (Passover for Israelis actually ends on Friday, but the country’s national airline doesn’t fly on the Sabbath, and the airport runs a very limited Saturday schedule, so de facto, Sunday will be one of the busiest travel days of the year).

Pro-‘Palestinian’ ‘activists’ have chosen Sunday for Flytilla 2, an event that crash landed last year after hundreds of Europeans were denied boarding by airports around Europe. According to Israel Television, the ‘activists’ believe that this year they will be allowed to board because last year the airlines had to pay them compensation (it’s not clear to me whether that was any more than a refund of the ticket prices).

But Israel is having none of it, and has passed out lists of participants to airlines, informing the airlines that such people will be denied entry.  In turn, airlines are cancelling tickets:

German airline Lufthansa canceled the tickets of dozens of pro-Palestinian activists scheduled to fly to Tel Aviv on Sunday as part of a mass fly-in dubbed “Welcome to Palestine,” the organizers said Friday.

“Dozens of passengers who bought a plane ticket to travel to Tel Aviv on Sunday, April 15, were notified Thursday by Lufthansa that their reservation was canceled at the behest of Israel,” they said in a statement.

Jet2 airlines also has cancelled tickets.

Too bad.

It’s so sad when travellers’ travel plans are cancelled.

My eyes well with the tears of 1,000 disbarred Mike Nifongs.

Wanna get to Palestine?

It’s quite easy. Just book a flight to Amman, Jordan.

What would it be like to have a group of leaders who love their nation like Israel’s…???

(sigh)

When will these useful idiots finally stop? Don’t they have anything better to do? Who’s paying them?

If those screaming internationalists want to make a YouTube video where we can watch them scream REALLY loudly maybe they can have their tickets exchanged for ones taking them for a tropical vacation on Komodo Island so they can play with those cute little dragons. (insert eagle chuckling sound here)

    I say send ’em all to Syria or Iran.
    Then they’ll get to see what a real tyranny looks like up close and personal.

      Syria perhaps, but I’m more inclined to think that Iran would roll out the welcome mat for them and hail them as freedoms fighters.

    Leaping Lizards!

    Sharon Stone’s hubby tangled with a Komodo Dragon at the L.A. Zoo.

    Steve Irwin he is not.

That or maybe, Pakistan/Afghanistan. I hear they are quite lovely, this time of year.

Pakistan with a bombing a day, and a change of administration/regime takes place through the various ABC methods – Accusation/Aggression/Abdication. Bomb/bullet/bloodshed. Corruption/conviction/conflict/coup.

I am with you in your struggle, peaceful warriors!

For a time you’ll never forget, go free Tibet. The Chinese gulag is exceptional at high altitudes.

Count on me to be there…in spirit.

(And for the limousine leftist who can afford something more exclusive, arrangements can be made to smuggle you into North Korea to picket a missile site.)

    Norte Korea is another site just SCREAMING for courageous, principled protest.

    Plus, they need the meat…

    I hear the NORKS were going to renamed the missile after Hilary Rosen but nobody could pronounce it.

      I hear the NORKS were going to renamed the missile after Hilary Rosen but nobody could pronounce it.

      From the results of the test, the missile is being renamed
      “Whoflungdung”…

Hey, why don’t the Israelis just shoot them down with those stink bombs they’ve developed.
This is hilarious.

    Originally it was a goat scented mist, but they stopped using it when it was discovered to be an aphrodisiac to the Palestinian male population.

Let them board….let them fly….let them land… Leave the plane on the Tarmac…turn off the AC…. Charge them a hotel tax, a “breathing-our-air” tax, charge them tariffs for every bit of clothing they have on, charge them studio taxes for filming inside Israel, fine them for failing to file for twenty different permits needed to conduct sight seeing tours, bill them for criminal background checks and then evict them from the country for failing to pay their bills.

DocWahala – if the fools want in, make them pay out the nose, collect the money, give it to the widows and orphans of rocket attacks, and when they have no more money, boot them out.

    DocWahala in reply to DocWahala. | April 13, 2012 at 8:04 pm

    And the whole time they are flying, require the seat back tv play nothing but unedited video of the carnage from the bombs and rockets. Plaster every available space with glossy 4x10s of the wounded and dead. Have the PA system play interviews of the mothers who have buried the babies.

    DocWahala, has no patience for those who try to paint terrorist murderers as the victim.

Too bad? Perhaps. Ha-ha! Definitely. I wonder who is sponsoring these delinquents. Their selective indignation is unbecoming their moral certitude. Surely they possess ulterior motives. Up to and including an all paid trip to an exotic land.

Update……… from the Prime Minister’s Office….
