I appreciate that Israeli soldiers are injured. I do not like anyone being injured and killed. 9 civilians were killed. What I said was that I think Europe in general has a different psychological reaction to things of this nature as you can see by our anger when police get heavy at for instance G8 summits.
If Israel had done nothing to provoke these people, who admittedly ought to have been like previous ships and not subject to provocation even when told they are about to be fired on...but if Israel had not provoked and/or fired on them first, then simply seeing them on the ship with their wooden battons and pipes imo ought to have been cause to stop for a bit and rethink. Not necessarily to let them in to Gaza but at least to talk to the other members of the flotilla who did not act in this way to get the situation changed.
The situation is far from clear yet.
Turkish people are very angry at the moment.

"The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis."

"In another development on Sunday, a senior Iranian military figure said the country's elite Revolutionary Guards were ready to escort aid flotillas to Gaza if ordered to by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
"The Revolutionary Guards' naval forces are fully prepared to escort freedom and peace flotillas carrying humanitarian aid from all over the world to the oppressed people of Gaza," Ali Shirazi, Ayatollah Khamenei's naval representative, told Mehr news agency."
