That's better than claiming I guess.
Anyway what would be the logic behind sending people in the ship in order to kill one, two, or a select bunch?
Why not use a shell, or snipers, or as I said lots of times, shoot from the helis without risking the soldiers? Why?
It could serve as a warning to the other boats, but this turned into slaughter - as (for some reason) those people on the ship didn't like
seeing their freinds, wives and family members having guns with live ammunition pointed in their faces.
Learn the facts first. The other boats have followed procedures. It was the Marmara boat that had these anarchists in it, that's why it was the only
ship that had a conflict at, and the only ship where people got shot at.
Other ships have been taken over before the choppers got to Marmara.
And, I have already posted a video AND close-up images of the original PAINTBALL GUNS that were used as a primary weapon (lol) in order to just deter
them. So no need for the whole "guns with live ammunition" speach.
Unless you have never ever heard of a situation where unarmed people suddenly revolt against their captors / antagonists, then i think the most
logical explanation is this.
Watch the videos and make up your mind. The only explanation is that IDF was sent to kill? Havn't the thought that they only wanted the ship to dock
at a reasonable place, crossed your mind? Havn't you thought about the ships refusing to comply requests (and then orders) to change course?
The people on the Flotillas suspect that Israel is using an illegal blockade, so they pressed on - expecting at least a warning from Israel -
but the same time, determined to deliver their authorised goods (food, water, medicine etc) to Gaza.
They were expecting a warning? How cute, so how come they ignored ALL of the warnings? Don't worry about food, water, medicine, and add to that
gas, electricity, sewage, and weapons
as Israel sends tons of aid weekly into Gaza. No actual loss here.
The Israeli's then mounted an assault in INTERNATIONAL waters, because otherwise Israel would have considered this as a sign of weakness to
I have already said why this was a mistake. And I also asked why is this so important. Just because there is such a law?
What difference would it make if Israel took over the ships in it's own waters? None, you guys would still run your mouthes against Israel and it's
Maybe the commando's were a snatch squad? They cut the live feed to the ships, but didn't expect a film crew to be documenting it.
Are you for real? They documented the event themselves. Jesus wtf is wrong in this place.
Alas, the snatch or warning or whatever it was - suddenly turned nasty when people panicked and grabbed various items to protect their loved
ones from the commandos who were (and had been previously reported) FIRING (possibly even before mounting the flotilla). These could have been warning
Opinions and guesses again.
But either way - a struggle ensued and many people died.
Shame, shouldn't have happened.
Next time they should dock at Ashdod like it was suggested.
It was illegal. People were KILLED and injured for daring to ignore the orders of a state with a notoriety of blood thirst, and instead only
wished to deliver aid to previous victims of Israel.
Blah blah blah. Yet still nobody says why were this people killed (other than me and few other sane folks).
Were they killed because the IDF was sent to kill? Yes or no? - PROVIDE PROOF OR SOURCE
