    World condemns Gaza flotilla raid, Israel says aid convoy 'had weapons on board'

Some of the ships are now being towed to the Israeli port city of Ashdod.

    It is past high time that the world established a "united nations" or a "league of nations" to solve these problems.
    America , nor Israel should have to do this. Someone is lying about these events as to who is at fault.
    Its even a lie about the "world" condemning... I did not even know about this, but I do know about the "oil spill".
    Man should try "honesty" for a change.

    If they were peaceful activists why were Israeli soldiers hurt?

    They were attacked in international waters. The activists defended themselves. They have the right to do this.

    But what did they defend themselves with? Why did they have weapons on the ship in the first place if they were heading into Gaza, where they knew full well there was a blockade?

    Oh, and how do YOU know if they "were attacked" before or after they "defended" themselves? Were you on the boat?

    Defend themslves from what? I would say they were terrorist wanting to kill Jews. In order to defend yourself you must be afraid of being harmed there is no evidence the Israelis wantd to harm anyone.

    it would appear you do not know about the armed IDF soldiers who assaulted the vessel using ropes dropped from hovering helicopters to illegally board the ship in international waters
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    Sorry, ropes are not an "assault" unless they were used to whip the crew on board.

    These guys knew full well about the blockade when they set off for Gaza. They knew full well they were going to be boarded just like every other Gaza-bound ship. If they "defended" themselves from that with physical force, then this is 100% the flotilla's fault.
