Israel Conquers YouTube

IDF Flotilla videos garner millions of views

Yesterday, the New York Times noted that one of the main battlegrounds, at this point, is YouTube, with videos from competing sides each purporting to sell different narratives of the incident: Who was armed and who was unarmed, who started it, and so on. (Me? I will continue to insist that Han shot first.)

Well, numbers aren’t everything, but the numbers have it for Israel: Despite initially holding off on releasing footage, as of yesterday afternoon Youtube’s first- and third-most viewed videos, each with more than a million views, are IDF tapes of the raid on the main ship, the Mavi Marmara. These show the soldiers being violently set upon immediately after landing. (Second place was going to something titled “American Idol Freakout!!”—more Zionist propaganda, no doubt.)

A new “mash-up” of IDF footage, which does a nice job splicing among different perspectives, has been making the rounds. Check it out below:

My opinion is all 680 should have been fed to sharks and the other ships should have been blown out of the water…This is just ridding the world of rabid animals!
