    U.S. citizen among those killed in Israeli flotilla raid

    washingtonpost.com

    JERUSALEM -- A U.S. citizen of Turkish origin was among the nine people killed in a botched Israeli effort to stop a Turkish aid ship from reaching the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, a Turkish official said Thursday.

    ...

    The American citizen was identified by the Anatolia news agency as Furkan Dogan, a 19-year-old student. His body had four bullet wounds to the head and one to the chest, the news agency reported.

    I find "do not attempt to murder an Israeli commando" more appropriate.

    Maybe that's why your recent vacation didn't have you on a flotilla enjoying the sites of the Mediterranean and a re-enactment of an Israeli commando putting his boot up your ass...

    Re: U.S. citizen among those killed in Israeli flotilla raid

    This American citizen was a threat to Israel and most definitely attacked IDF soldiers. He took his life in his own hands when he chose to board a blockade rejecting terrorist aiding flotilla. He shouldn't have some special status or privilege simply because he was a US citizen.
