Senator wants U.S. Navy to help block flotillas to Gaza

Senator Mark Kirk of Illinois sure is earning the hundreds of thousands of dollars the Israel lobby dumps into his coffers.  In a report based on a recent “fact-finding” trip to the Middle East, Kirk calls for U.S. naval and special operations forces to support Israel in combating the upcoming flotilla to Gaza.

Kirk’s report reads:

The IHH plans to send a second flotilla to breach Israel’s coastal security later this month. To prevent further violence, the United States should:

1) immediately designate the IHH as a terrorist entity under Executive Order 13224, which targets “terrorists, terrorist organizations, and those providing financial, technological, or material support to terrorists, terrorist organizations, or acts of terrorism”;

2) make available all necessary special operations and naval support to the Israeli Navy to effectively disable flotilla vessels before they can pose a threat to Israeli coastal security or put Israeli lives at risk; and

3) make it clear to Turkish President Erdogan that Turkey will be held accountable for any actions that support or enable the IHH to launch its flotilla.

The flotilla, set to sail to Gaza at the end of this month, aims to nonviolently challenge the Israeli blockade that has suffocated the Gaza Strip.  Kirk’s call for the U.S. Navy to provide “special operations and naval support to the Israeli Navy” to stop the flotilla is particularly alarming because a contingent of American citizens will be a part of the flotilla.  Kirk would have no problem, it seems, with the U.S. Navy being deployed against U.S. citizens aiming to break the blockade, which has been termed “collective punishment” by the International Committee of the Red Cross.

  2. No! This is none of our business–no matter how much money AIPAC pays you people!

    I think the good Senator should volunteer to be on the lead boat so he can oversee the killing himself. He should be prominently featured in the mass media when the IDF shoots the first American and he takes credit for assisting in the killing.

    On the other hand, the Senator has already shown that his interests are with Israel and not he United States- and for that reason he must be removed from office by any means necessary.

  4. america has sick political people that mean to destroy whatever credability it has left eventually she will have to leave the middle east in shame taling israel with her.

  5. what an ASSHOLE

  6. Mark Kirk might want to use his extensive experience in the Middle East to find out as to who Erdogan is. To me, it appears, Erdogan is Turkish Prime Minister, not the Presdient. Also I can understand the Senator demanding US Navy to protect Israeli Navy, while the Israeli Navy attacks Americans. I would strongly suggest we name one of our support vessels the USS Liberty. Who knows the IDF might, in the melee, mistakenly attack it again.

    • Thank you for reminding everyone just who Mark Kirk is and what he supports. Perhaps the American survivors of the USS Liberty should send messages to Kirk and tell him what they think of his ideas.

  7. Senator Mark Kirk of Illinois probably has not read that Illinois is bankrupt. They have major problems with finding ways to just survive. Our founding fathers never wanted the senators elected. They created a body of people who were appointed by the officials o the state. This eliminated todays problem of senators like Kirk becoming a prostitute to get campaign money. Kirk has taken hundreds of thousands of dollars from AIPAC and of course he will do the “sex act” asked by his john. The man needs to keep his job. I personally would not allow an incumbent to spend once cent on getting reelected. If a guy is any good then the people will know it. If he is a prostitute then he will made bad decision like getting out military into helping illegal blockade. I wish Kirk would just close doors and do sexual acts for his money because I do not want my kids killed by a prostitute making bad decision. Because we now elect our senators we have 100 prostitutes collecting money. I am not sure but I would bet that AIPAC is the largest single group giving them their reelection money. I suspect they also get a lot of trips to Israel were the porn kings can get film on them so in case they would grow a back bone they can be controlled.

  8. AIPAC should be registered as a foreign agent

  9. George A from Toronto

    Don’t just blame Kirk,all Politicians are P’israel firsters and have a hatred for filthy oil rich Arabs

  10. Howard T. Lewis III

    Mewler with a capital M.

  11. Just don’t let other send flotilas. US soldiers are pretty bad soldiers, can’t win any war. Please do Israel a favor don’t send fat lazy ass US soldiers.

  13. Shame on Senator Kirk! The US Navy ought to be escorting the aid ships to break Israel’s starvation blockade of Gaza just as American aircraft helped to break the Soviet starvation blockade of West Berlin in 1949. In both cases a conquering tyrant sought to starve the blockaded people into surrendering their elected government and accepting foreign rule.

    Has Senator Kirk forgotten his history? Has Senator Kirk decided to ignore the opinion of the majority of the American people who support the creation of a Palestinian state and an end to the blockade?

    Has Senator Kirk forgotten that Israel murdered a 19-year old American in cold blood in international waters only a year ago on the previous aid flotilla?

    Has Senator Kirk forgotten who it is he is supposed to work for in his haste to serve his Israeli masters?

    No government can serve two masters, and a government that serves Israel cannot serve the American people.

    A friend to Israel is no friend of America.

    America needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third.

  14. Glad he’s not a Senator representing my home state.

  15. What an absolute idiot, this is our leadership??? What photos do the Zionists have of Sen Kirk? Perhaps the Senator should learn a little history about the USS Liberty and re-think who our Navy and boys should be protecting.
    What a dickhead.

  16. Somebody should remind this person that i) israel deliberately tried to murder the crew of the USS Liberty in 1967 and ii) Netanyahu said that 911 was good for Israel.

  17. Hermes Trismegistus

    Hurrah for Tom Dee. He is 100% correct. Sen. Kirk is not only a whore but an exceptionally vile one. Sen Kirk seems to think that it is his business to advocate use of U.S. tax dollars for the benefit of Israel rather than for the people of his state.
    All 100 senators are morally corrupt, and with exception of Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul, all of the representatives of congress are equally corrupt and willing to sell not only themselves but their country as well. Supporting a terrorist state such as Israel is diametrically opposed to our own best interests.
    Kirk and his colleagues all have that same odor of sewage that traitors have.
    Hermes

  18. Kirk and a whole lot of others just like him are an embarassment to his state and his country. He cares nothing for the illegality of the Gaza blockade or the hardship and deaths it causes. He is interested in one thing only, money! What a despicable individual.

  19. Get this man out of office, he does not represent the interests of his constituents or of his country, he acts contrary to them.

  20. You ROCK.
    I couldn’t have said it better.

  21. Where does the host end and the parasite begin !?

  22. Auberon Barnable

    Israel is the real terrorist state. I’m sure Senator Mark Kirk wants us to forget about the attack on the U.S.S. Liberty in 1967 killing 34 and wounding 174 of our servicemen. I’m sure he also wants us to forget the Dancing Israelis on 9/11 – three of them later admitted on Israeli TV that they were “sent to document the event”. Google it..the Truth is out there!!

  23. Madam DeFarge is somewhere quietly knitting….
    And Kirk’s name has been added I am quite sure.

  24. You dont have to be a jew to be a zionest .

  25. Free_World_Now

    This senator is a traitor by taking money from a foreign government.
    He should be jailed and stripped of all his wealth.
    America has no business interfering with these aid flotillas.
    Stop using our military for anything other than protecting Americans!

  26. Can someone arrest him for something like dishonouring his oath in office or something? The ONLY way, these politicans will shape up when the people call the cops, Texas Rangers, or whomever to arrest his ass.

    He certainly should be hassled in his local district for saying ‘US citizens will be considered terrorists.’

    The politicans will understand when embarrassed on Youtube/MSM for their outrageous comments.

  27. It’s my honest opinion that Senator Kirk should mind his own business. Although he is nothing more than an Israeli mouthpiece, someone should remind him who the “real terrorists” are. I think he knows, but since he works for them, he dare not admit it.

  28. These so called “representatives” are “representing” Israel and not America.
    This is reprehensible behavior to any “real” American.

    The stench of corruption and treason is overwhelming. Kirk has not only sold his soul to the devil that is AIPAC, he has also put the interest of the Zionist, racist, brutal Israeli occupation before the interest of his electorate and his country. Surely this is moral degradation of the lowest possible order and an act of treason for which he should be tried.

  31. Peter Mitchell

    I think the Senator himself should be arrested under Executive Order 13224, which targets “terrorists, terrorist organizations, and those providing financial, technological, or material support to terrorists, terrorist organizations, or acts of terrorism”; after all, he is inciting a foreign power (Israel) to attack American citizens.

  32. Israel has no right to stop the flotilla in internation water those zionist murderous the world is watching and the world will see what israel is realling like. The US needs to stay out of the world and look after their own insed of forcing other countries to follow them into hell.

  33. Senator Kirk is simply interested in reelection and fully understands that this is not possible unless he supports any and all Israeli actions.

    That is the reality of high political office in the USA today!!!

  34. Lash this POS traitor to the keel of the lead ship and keelhaul the prick for the duration of the entire operation!

  35. Kirk’s suggestions won’t go anywhere. Even our military leaders are finally waking up
    to being misused by USA/Israel polticians. Our front line military knows it has been misused for sure.

    The “entangling alliance” about which Presidents Washington and Jefferson warned is hard upon us — but I’ll wager that they didn’t envision that this alliance is one built on a criminally psychotic ideology which has collectively enveloped the ideology itself, its direct and indirect adherents, and the U.S./entire world by associating with it. Zionism must be diagnosed, treated and relegated to history. Kirk is a direct mouthpiece and a traitor. In an sane world, he’d be impeached, found guilty of crimes antithetical to the vital national interests of the U.S., and summarily removed from office…but of course it’s not a sane world: who was the Jewish/Zionist lobbyist several years ago who — even then — gloated that he could use the napkin at his luncheon table and, within a day or so, have the signatures of 70 U.S. senators written on it?

  37. It is Senator Dun Kirk’s right to advocate killing whomever he wants by any means necessary to keep the people free and safe from harm. If that means war with Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran, and Russia, then that’s the price of freedom.

    The sleaziest cat house this side of the Pecos. First for war. Last for peace. First in the pockets of their countrymen. This Kirk fellow must have been wearing his cha-cha pumps IN CONGRESS to try to blow a request for sacrifice of Americans for the benefit of his Israeli psychobuddies. Wearing his cha-cha pumps and heels.
    I know about ‘biblical prophecy’ and all that entails. But I have been watching these psychopathic demonstrations of satanic wit with 9-11, the Fukushima siting, The DH blow-out in thee GOM, etc., all trying to infer that safety MUST BE AVAILABLE!!! SOMEWHERE!! More SECURITY. Hands down the pants for national security. Fondling barelegged children for National Security. I’ll stop here. Think HAARP circles and tornados. It’s real. The NWO=OWO+CFR+IMF are doing it. Can Kirk today.

  40. Everyone who does not do the bidding of Israel is considered a “terrorist.” Everyone who does not do the bidding of the US Constitution is a traitor.

    Any questions?

  41. It is now at a point where these bought and paid politicians don’t even care if we know about their subservience and loyalty to Israel. This is truly appalling and I agree, he has proven himself unworthy of the sacred trust placed in him by the voters. Like Weiner, he will be tossed aside when his usefulness to the Israeli lobbyists is ended. Plenty more where he came from.

  42. howardtlewisiii

    It would be interesting to verify whether therapists were doing candidate recruiting for the CFR and AIPAC.

  43. Jafar M Ramini

    No matter how long and hard we try to debate this issue of AIPAC’s undue influence and open-ended access to government and the blindfolded support for Israel no matter what it’s not going to go away. Not when AIPAC has bought and paid for most politicians. You, the American people/voters have one course of action open to you which you must undertake if you are to reclaim the independence of your country. START DIVORCE PROCEEEDINGS FROM AIPAC. This noble cause has been advocated and called for on the forum of United Progressives by the founder and executive director, Paul Barrow. Please have a look at United Progressives on their website or on Facebook. America is for the Americans, not for pressure groups and tarnished politicians. These members of government serve only one master. The racist, Zionist, apartheid state of Israel. Please engage, please stay focussed, use your vote, use your voice and serve the interests of your country. Not the Knesset and Israel.
