All these Israel haters, you disgust me. You just eat up all of this anti-israel hype and dont question where it came from. Imagine your country was surrounded on all sides by countries who openly declare they want you wiped out ... blur ... blur ... disinfo

Israel know this, they stated it before the flotilla put to sea but they will not be manipulated, it shows weakness, which is a very dangerous thing to do when you are surrounded by countries that despise you.

Do they actually have the right to blockade Gaza anyway?

Israel warned them in advance.... If they chose not to heed the warning then they proved Israel right all along; that they were not genuine aid carriers, they were out to provoke Israel just like Hamas and Hizbullah.

Aid workers returning fire, to defend themselves are the victims.

Yes i just seen the live footage of this atrocity. Israel will pay for this as there is on board european legistors on board one of the boats. I think its time Europe flexed its muscles and move ships to gaza and stick 2 fingers up to israel. I like to see Israel attack a real army. God damn cowards
I could not agree more! Anyone can look like Barney Bad-Ass with all of the United States Military support, all the while beating up people who's best weapon are half-asses homemade RPG's and/or explosives.
I would love to see someone just plow over Israel, by far they are the biggest troublemakers and bullies in the middle east.

If this was just a peaceful aid convoy then why did they ATTACK they Israeli naval commandos with axes and bottles and then try to steal their weapons? If they were so peaceful why dident they accept Israel's offer to sail to an Israel port, have their ship's inventory be inspected by Israeli Customs and then go to Gaza?
The initial movement may have had good intentions to help the Palestinian people, but then they allowed their movement to be hijacked by terrorist lovers and apologists and used as a weapon against Israel.
