    I think you are missing my point. If these were weapons to be given to Hamaz, it would not be kitchen knives and screw drivers. They would be AK-47s and desert eagles... and Boxes of ammo for that matter. If anything, these weapons were being used because the activists knew they would be defending themselves in international waters. I'm actually surprised they didn't have at least one pistol on board.

    No one has said that they were trying to smuggle these things to Gaza. They brought them for the purpose of arming themselves in case of a conflict with Israeli soldiers, while also allowing them to pretend that they were just mere kitchen knives and metal poles.

    Yes and we know how well using knives and clubs are against SMG's and handguns dont we. By god they were armed to the teeth werent they, able to defend themselves versus the entire Israeli navy with just knives and clubs, and by golly win

    Well yea, was it not obvious they would have a conflict? I for one knew they were going to be stopped by the Navy before they even got close enough to Gaza.

    Not sure what you think you're responding to, as this is an entirely irrelevant point.

    PS. You know that there were no SMGs involved, right?

    There are many here who would disagree with you, arguing that these people were merely engaging in peaceful civil disobedience until they were forced into action by the Israelis and just so happened to have these things handy in order to fight back.

    It was the Israeli navy that violently boarded the ship, not the other way around.

    I am quite sure if the aid floatilla tried to board and Israeli navy vessel they would have been shot on sight, rather then just beaten with some clubs.

    No one would have died if Israel did not board the ship in an early morning raid

    And no one would have died if these idiots had not tried to run the blockade and then decided to attack the soldiers who were stopping the boat. The other five boats had no casualties.

    Because they ARE ****ing kitchen knives and metal pipes! I'm sorry but that is the lamest explanation I have ever heard. Anyone familiar with Israel at all knows you do NOT **** with the IDF, these are not people known for their easy-going nature and sense of humor. Metal pipes and kitchen knives are NOT going to do anything wielded by civilians against trained IDF commandos and any fool knows that.

    I'm sorry but I've lost some serious respect for you if you are genuinely pushing this "ambush" crap.

    If you got stabbed in the throat with a six inch knife, do you think you'd give a **** whether it was a kitchen knife or a switchblade?
    It actually does make a difference. Kitchen knives are not designed for stabbing someone and break easily when they are used to do so. The metal of kitchen knives is extremely hard so that it retains an edge longer but that also makes it brittle, try bending a kitchen knife someday and you'll see what I mean. A $6 pocket knife is a better tool for stabbing someone than a kitchen knife.

    and if this one ship had emulated every other ship in the convoy, no one would have died.
