Valley of the Wolves: Palestine

A Turkish action film with English subtitles. According to the description on the We Are All Vittorio Arrigoni Facebook page, it is “about a Turkish commando team which goes to Palestine to track down the Israeli military commander responsible for the Gaza flotilla raid”. Harsh justice in a harsh world, and a film that the Israelis actively tried to prevent from being made.

    This is a “I hope it comes true” movie. Unless it already is, which your posting and categories seem to make clear it has yet to happen.
    I watched the live satellite footage that was beamed out of the unlawful raid by Israel on the Mavi Marmara. I kept hoping that some of those people were armed and could fight back as those soldiers picked them off one by one. Then I saw the young bodies of the child-men who were shot point blank in the face and I saw the “hit list” that one of the pirates dropped.
    The Israelis were pirates because they unlawfully seized a vessel of the high seas that had a perfect right to be there. They were and are no different than the Somali pirates that prey off the coast of Africa. Now go ahead all you Israel apologists, accuse me of being every dirty name you can throw at me, because it’s not true.
    The only anti-Semitic Nazi Death Camp operators are the Israeli Government and the Israeli Government apologists. And you are anti-Semitic, because Semitic refers to an ethnic group that inhabits the eastern Mediterranean and includes Israelis and Palestinians. The seizing of the term “anti-Semitic” was done because someone had access to a better propaganda machine. “Anti-Semitic”, in all reality refers to those people who hold an unreasoning hatred of anyone who is of the semitic ethnicity. Getting a little warm for you Israeli apologists? It gets hotter.
    You are operating the current version of Auschwitz or the Warsaw Ghetto in the Gaza Strip. You are deliberately trying to to starve the Palestinians out of existence and using them for target practice whenever you feel your SS need some target practice.
    I don’t want to hear about the Final Solution or Never Again. It won’t fly when you have become what you decry. Get over yourselves and get civilized again. If you can. Remember, the Egyptians were unarmed against Mubarak’s very heavily armed thugs. They beat them anyway. Let that be a lesson to you Bebe!

      Jim, I think the Somali pirates have way more integrity than their Israeli counterparts. And yes, this is definitely a “wish it would happen” movie. I think it speaks to the level of rage the Turks feel about what happened on the Mavi Marmara.

      (I squinted at the closing credits to see if the footage from the ship was Iara Lee’s, because it looks so much like it, but couldn’t tell. If it’s not her documentary footage, it’s a damn good likeness.)
