From actual eyewitness testimonials reports say Israel even fired at people trying to fight fires on the ship.Fifteen years after the attack, an Israeli pilot approached Liberty survivors and then held extensive interviews with former Congressman Paul N. (Pete) McCloskey about his role. According to this senior Israeli lead pilot, he recognized the Liberty as American immediately, so informed his headquarters, and was told to ignore the American flag and continue his attack. He refused to do so and returned to base, where he was arrested.
Later, a dual-citizen Israeli major told survivors that he was in an Israeli war room where he heard that pilot's radio report. The attacking pilots and everyone in the Israeli war room knew that they were attacking an American ship, the major said. He recanted the statement only after he received threatening phone calls from Israel.

Footage now released by the IDF boats show the boarding troops being attacked as they land on the largest ship, individual commandos are attacked and one is thrown overboard - however they have boarded a ship in international waters. There is now a UN Security Council meeting but I fully expect the US to block anything critical of Israel or any attempt to put forward any independent enquiry.
Is the blockade of Gaza itself legal under "International Law?"
Israel certainly says its blockade is legal however the UN has repeatedly asked Israel to lift the blockade.
Israel may now have lost any support it would ever get from Turkey (I realise that relations have soured recently however) or other moderate Islamic nations and apparently Greece has just cancelled joint naval activities about to start with Israel.

i cannot believe that you realy think that israel has honestly murderd those people!plz listen to me... i live in israel, my boyfriend is in the army and i know exactly what is going on... for several days the idf has warn those shipes n-o-t to come to gaza. we were afraid that the shipes contain weapons and armory that can harm our citizens and soilders. i remind you that evry country has the right to defend it self. we even offered them to anchor in ashdod,so that we could check the supplies and pass it over to gaza. but the shipes refused- is it not suspicious? the shipe was going to enter our teritory and we were afraide 4 our citizens- it could even exploud! the idf had warn them for days that we will enter the boat if they would not let us check the suspicious but our intentions are pure and not harmfoul. our soilders, while sliding down those ropes were packing paint guns and just in case the hand guns were in the back cuz there were no intention of using them at all (!!!!!). while coming down,they were ripped away from the rope and bitten with fists, knifes, clubs, long crow bar-type pole and they were shot with guns!!! each soilder was surrounded with 3-5 guys that beat the hell out of them! all of the soilders were hert! those unfortunate soilders had no chance of survivel! they had to defend them shelf- it was kill or be killed! this wasn't a humanitarian shipe, they acted like terorists and they were armd with weapons!!!! just so u know- we found boxes with guns and ammunition on the shipes so what kind of humanitery cruz whas it?! i'll tell you. the one that hamas orgenized deliberately to draw attention to gaza and believe me hamas dose not give a damn obout the lost lifes... but i can ensure u, they are smuged that their plan worked and we all played into theire hands. it's a sad day to all of us...

Funny, how I got a report about a thread ban even thought I was telling the truth it amusing to say the least. The official story of the USS liberty doesn't add up when you put up other testimonials found by actual people that were their at the time. I have stated facts from people who were on the ship at the time of the attack. Which can be found here
