israel - deny first, explain later

Standard Operating Procedure.
Israel said Thursday that no aggression against German forces was intended during a confrontation between Israeli aircraft and a German naval vessel patrolling off Lebanon.
This, of course, was after they initially denied it.
The Israeli embassy in Berlin released a statement from the defense ministry in Tel Aviv, saying the defense ministers of the two countries had discussed Tuesday's incident.

The episode occurred when Israeli jets scrambled after a helicopter took off from a German frigate serving with a United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) task force. German Defense Ministry spokesman Thomas Raabe said six Israeli F-16s had flown very low over the German vessel and one of them fired two shots near the ship.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said the helicopter did not coordinate his plan with Israel before taking off. As a result, Israel sent fighter jets into the air, forcing the helicopter to return to the German vessel and land.

The Israeli military, however, denied having fired any shots in the incident, which happened near the border with Lebanon close to the border town of Rosh Ha'Nikra.
israeli denials will persist, of course, unless or until incontrovertible evidence emerges that they DID.
Israeli Defense Minister Amir Peretz telephoned his German counterpart Franz-Josef Jung Wednesday night to explain the incident, officials from both sides said, stressing a desire to maintain good cooperation.

Jung is due to pay a visit to Israel next week, but Tuesday's incident is not expected to cast a cloud over the talks, diplomats said.
I'm sure the German pilot forced to land, under fire by SIX!!! israeli F-16s, begs to differ!

UPDATE: Do you see any "heli-pad" [on this ship]?

And the plot thickens . . . nuclear war around the corner? just maybe.

UPDATE 2:
"There have been two incidents, one involving a helicopter and another the Alster" a German electronic surveillance and reconnaissance ship.

Raabe said six Israeli F-16 fighter planes had fired shots into the air over the Alster on Tuesday while the ship was in international waters some 50 nautical miles off the Israeli coast.
That explains that.

Now, what explains why israeli warships would fire at an intelligence ship?

This incident has hardly been reported in the media. Imagine if it was any country other than Israel, then we would be hearing lots more.

Remember U.S.S. Liberty on June 8, 1967.

Israel was behind this. LBJ wanted U.S.S. Liberty sunk.

John McCain, his (deceased) father, Robert McNamara and associates who assist in the cover-up are guilty of treason of the highest order and must face the music. They merit standing on the as-yet-unopened trapdoor at the gallows before the final moment to pay the ultimate price for being genuine traitors to the Constitutional Republic of U.S.A.

LBJ was a sick and traitorous son of a bitch who also dragged USA along in the monstrously pointless Vietnam War to assert the imperialistic colonial interests.

The Israelis who attacked U.S.S. Liberty were/are pure evil.

The Israeli lobbyists and assistants who exert the fearsome influence in the corridors of Capitol Hill to force the Congressmembers to look the other way and kiss their collective ass are pure evil.

May the State of Israel vanish through the grand entry of the stage of self-destruction it asks for in the near future.

If the agressor had been Jordan, Egypt or Saudi Arabia, the U.S. media would be riding the incident for all it's worth. But since it's Israel, well... uh... what incident?

Yeah.

For a country known for its superb military, Israel sure makes a lot of 'mistakes' which tend to cause the deeeeeply regrettable loss of innocent lives.

Imagine if you will, that besides the money in your purse/wallet, you had a bunch of chits that could call in favours from all your acquaintances whenever you wanted to. Israel is just going on a spending spree with these kinds of chits for reasons that I just can't find.

Favours are as good or better than cash. They don't come cheap from prominent people. Ergo, Israel feels the breath of some sort of wolf on its neck that we're not being told of.

The only thing I can think of is that it's got something to do with Israel's military supermen imagery going the way of the dodo. That's huge for whatever plans they had in the near future. Imagine Nazi Germany suffering 5 Jesse Owenses in the same day and you've got the picture of what I'm thinking.

Lesliemai;

Smart bombs need infrared markings to hone in on. That's applied to a target beforehand, often by a drone. Therefore, the UN disaster was no accident. (Although I'm not the host, I don't consider your post OT. It's another of Israel's insane actions that require huge political favours to act as kitty litter.)

From Article 13 Hamas Charter

"There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors. "

From Article 8 Hamas Charter

"Allah is its target, the Prophet is its model, the Koran its constitution: Jihad is its path and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes. "

From Article #11

"This is the law governing the land of Palestine in the Islamic Sharia (law) and the same goes for any land the Moslems have conquered by force, because during the times of (Islamic) conquests, the Moslems consecrated these lands to Moslem generations till the Day of Judgement."


Ooops I know I mustn't ever say the Palestinians aren't anything but the friendliest peace loving people but perhaps you ought to get into your thick heads that its they who reject peace in any form and to deny that is to show your complete ignorance.

Read and learn something fools
