    Tell yourself a lie enough times and you might as well believe it.
    So since when do peaceful activists carry assault rifles?
    At best they wrestled a weapon off the Israeli hit squads. In fact there are reports that 2 people were already killed before the troops set foot on the ships. It was not long after the raid that the IDF were out spinning about sling shots and knives... yea like the passengers are not allowed to defend themselves just because the opposition are IDF troops?
    And the soldiers have shot and stabbed themselves.

    It was.. till the IDF attacked the flotilla. The IDF fired the first "shot" so to say. The IDF and Israel are at fault period and no amount of spin will change that.
    Pete, you talk about "reports", but are they credible?

    Reasonable suspicion, and therefore Israel's right to board and search the ships.
    You misunderstand my reason for asking. It was not to shed doubt on Israel's decision to not let the flotilla reach Gaza, it was because I prefer facts to made up ****. Since there is zero reporting on automatic weapons and explosives being transported on the ships, I figured the claim fell into the latter category. Of course, every so often, I end up being wrong, hence the asking for sources. I would hope we all want actual facts.

    Sky news interviewing Palestinian representative saying no Israeli soldier was attacked while pictures of Israeli soldiers being lynched the moment they board the ship are looping on the background - priceless.

    No one expected two different stories of course. Why don't we wait and see if the IDF was indeed attacked. I'm sure there will be evidence in terms of weapons and wounds.

    If we extrapolate on your worst-case logic here, then all policemen should be in SWAT gear whenever they answer a call. But as you well know, this approach is both impractical and illogical.
