    lol the US and israel just call anyone they don't like extremists ffs, this was retarded...

    your boat gets invaded from ****ing helicopters with navy seals (supplied and trained by the world's soul superpower) and you're meant to just sit there and be chilled out about it, when you're objective is bringing humanitarian aid to people seriously in need of it??

    of course, the US and Israel claiming the boat was full of "extremists" will make everyone side with them, but that's just ****ing words. Israel isn't a peaceful state, they're leading a genocide whether they can admit it or not, attempting to deny a group of people, based on ethnicity, their rights to human rights (not that i endorse human rights since it's the language of extremism itself, but it remains hypocritical they fight 'on the side' of human rights, while denying it)

    yes he probably was innocent until the exact moment he pick up a weapon of some sort and therefor he sacrificed his status of innocence out the window and then became a combatant.

    There is no genocide. From the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide:

    ...genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

    (a) Killing members of the group;
    (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
    (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
    (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
    (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
    Israel's policies and actions do not fit that definition.

    If you had read any of this thread you would have known the goal was never to bring aid.

    of course, the US and Israel claiming the boat was full of "extremists" will make everyone side with them, but that's just ****ing words.
    They had links to terrorist organizations. Its way beyond words.

    Ah and now for the Anti-Semitism. Tell you what scooter, take any joining country to Israel and I'll be happy to compare their laws and treatment of women and other religions.

    You as usual have no clue what you are talking about.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    1) Well first off the Israelis Navy doesn't have Navy seals, that would be the U.S. only and they weren't involved it was the IDF. 2) Running a military naval blockade regardless of your intention wil be met with force, resist the boarding party will be met with force and if this isn't successful then the vessel will be sunk, this has long been established for centuries and understood by just about every countries with sea going vessels. 3) claiming to be extremist or otherwise in irrelevant, the IDF was looking for contraband if the search turned up nothing then those ships would have been cleared to pass. The IDF didn't know what was aboard that ship, all the flotilla had to do is allow a boarding upon the ship but no they decided to run the blockade, very foolish indeed. 2) Lets talk about genocide, first off Israel is not the provocateur but Hamas is and indeed they do smuggle in weapons and fire upon Israel which BTW is a act of war. Now Turkey has committed such acts as Genocide but this is past history, non the less unless you have no bones in the closet then you have no room for protest or accusations of genocide.
    The Armenian Genocide, the first genocide of the 20th Century, occurred when two million Armenians living in Turkey were eliminated from their historic homeland through forced deportations and massacres between 1915-1918.

    To Americans? It should be. It should be to Israelis as well, since they are allies and the relationship between Israel and Turkey is neutral at best.

    This is the important point. American citizen or not, he challenged a foreign government in a war zone. There's a limit to how far we should go to protect individuals who challenge foreign governments outside of our jurisdiction. If we support our citizens' freedom to travel abroad and get involved in foreign affairs, we have to accept that some will suffer the consequences of doing so.

    The proof lies in the fact that both Israel and Egypt offered to have all the food, medicine and other humanitarian goods sent to Gaza, if the boats agreed to land in an Israeli or Egyptian port. That humanitarian offer was soundly rejected by the leaders of the flotilla who publicly announced:

    "This mission is not about delivering humanitarian supplies, it's about breaking Israel's siege on 1.5 million Palestinians." (AFP, May 27, 2010.)

    Wow just wow, so being shot four times in close range in the head means he was a combatant. Shooting someone in the head is generally know as a execution style killing. Why the hypocrisy when it comes to Israel, if Hamas had killed the American Citizen then you would be up in arms, and so would I. Hell, I pissed that Israel killed a American Citizen. Was his life more expendable too you, because he was an Turkish American, or that he spent most of his life outside of the USA, or because Israel killed him instead of another country.. . People like you, and Texmaster are the reason I fear for this nation.

    The fact is this they were shot at close range, so it this wasn't self defense it a bloody excution style killing.

    It's called Close Quarters Battle and the IDF trains their special operations soldiers to triple tap a target. One in the head and two in the chest. With the weapons they usually carry have single shot and 3 round burst, which explains why there are 4 rounds and not three. By the way, the US and other special forces train regularly in CQB using the same tactics the IDF uses. In order for it to qualify as an execution style killing the head shot has to come from behind and up with the target kneeling on the ground; not from the front and the target standing.
