Considering the amount of attention this has gotten and the international outcry to Israel's actions, this is a massive success.
    Extreme violence is now "non violent" Got it.

    Is up now considered down as well?

    And I think that's sufficient to label you irrational.
    They were stabbing and shooting at soldiers, saying that they weren't trying to kill anyone is pure dishonesty.

    Self defense against lethal force has always been an acceptable contingency of non-violent resistance.

    They've attacked soldiers before soldiers have attacked them, hence no self defense, and defintley not self defense against lethal force (painball anyone?).
    You're a walking beacon of irrationality and your arguments do not fit the standards of human logic.

    This inversion of the truth so many propagandists are offering is downright obscene.

    You are correct, win, lose or draw the flotilla was a complete PR success in their favor. That said, it appears that the world community insist on international laws have been violated but, I would be curious if any Maritime laws have been violated on behalf of the Flotilla.

    Did the commandos ask, "Permission to come aboard Captain?"

    Here's from Reuters agency:
    WAS THE INTERCEPTION, IN INTERNATIONAL WATERS, LEGAL?

    The Israeli navy said the flotilla was intercepted 120 km (75 miles) west of Israel. The Turkish captain of one of the vessels said they were 68 miles outside Israeli territorial waters. Under the law of blockade, a nation has the right to intercept a vessel in international waters so long as it is deemed to be bound for a "belligerent" territory, legal experts say.
