I offer the following in the spirit of hangman’s humor preceding what I hope will be a safe passage for all my friends on the various boats of the Gaza flotilla.
The IDF, like all military organizations gives names to every operation it executes. Its planned piracy on the high seas against the upcoming Gaza flotilla is probably no exception. I thought we’d tear a page from David Letterman’s book and suggest a list of Top Ten (actually it’s bar mitzvah 13, but who’s counting) suggested names for this high seas fiesta. Here’s your chance to devise some new ones. The winner will get to ride with the lead IDF zodiac intercepting the first flotilla ship:
Operation Bleeding Heart
Operation Don’t Menschen It
Operation Samaritan Smackdown
Operation Quick & the Dead
Operation Eternal Victim
Operation Let’s Get it Over With
Operation Finish the Job
Operation No Humanitarian Crisis
Operation Mavi Marmara-You’re So Over
Operation Let’s Talk Turkey
Operation IHH-I Hate Hamas
Operation Hot Lead
Operation Lead Balloon
And from Helena Cobban: Operation Ungrateful Dead (you’re showing your age, dear Helena).
Thanks to an anonymous reader for the concept.
