Israeli Officials Claim Aid Flotilla Had Ties to Al Qaeda, - Search
26000 links and counting on google and it also all over the media, then again you probably already know this but like I said you made your mind up long before this flotilla incident happened.
Here are the "humanitarians" in action.
I guess everybody is free to choose their heroes, eh?
"you're better off on Stormfront discussing how evil brown men are taking innocent white flowers." Infinite Chaos
Do you really think you're making sense with that sentence?If they had no "deadly intent," why board the humanitarian ships at all? If their intent was just to "dissuade" those on a humanitarian mission by driving them into retreat with paintballs or the like, they coulda just, y'know, lobbed water balloons at them from afar.
Because the ships have refused to comply with the navy when it has transmitted a messege twice ordering the ships to stop.Why initiate a forceful attempt to board?
There is a 100% certainity that the soldiers didn't come there with a deadly intent.I think the bottom line here is, we're still not entirely clear on the chain of events.
On all of the other ships there were zero casualties, on this specific ship we have a footage showing the "peaceful activists" waiting with cold(and perhaps 2 hot) weapons on board for the soldiers.
We know that the soldiers were all equipped with non-lethal weapons such as paintballs and flashbangs and we know that the pistols they were equipped with were only used after a soldier was seriously wounded and all of the other soldiers were in the risk of life.
The soldiers have shown huge restraint by not drawing their weapons through all the time that they were being lynched with knives and metal rods, and that would deserve the respect of anyone who thinks that they should have not fired.
In other words, due to your own opinion and hatred for Israel and your belief that it punishes Gazans everyday between two to four o'clock, if only to show them who' the boss around, you refuse to accept reality and choose to create your own.Still, given the long-term attempts by Israel to punish/marginalize/ discriminate against those along the Gaza strip, I'm not particularly inclined to give Israel a pass.
