You're in Israel's "corner" because it feeds your delusions. You need your delusions because facts will get in the way. Straw Men and Red Herrings are your style. After all, who wants the responsibility of knowing they "back" a murderer?
Might as well make the delusion fit around YOUR WORLD, huh?

We did not encounter peace activists, but violent people with knives, pipes, batons and weapons. Our force was indeed in life-threatening danger. They had to open fire. ...It is important for me to stress the mission is the result of numerous failed attempts at diplomacy, and this was a planned and premeditated media and physical attack against our forces, orchestrated by Hamas and Iran, seeking to continue importing weapons into Gaza.
As a person and the IDF spokesman, I express sorrow of the entire incident, but when soldiers face large knives, batons and weapons, they are compelled to defend themselves.

It doesn't matter who was on board of the ship. The IDF acted like pirates and the passengers are allowed to defend themselves by law. Don't go for the Israeli PR spin ...
There is no law that allows anybody to board a ship in International Waters.

Shark or anyone else watching the LiveStream at the time. Is this even remotely close to the reality of what you saw? Because this is the farthest thing from what I saw.

I suspect that that the soldiers were attacked and they responded with deadly force...

Readers have to look at the publics reactions way before it was known what happened.
99% of the posters sounded ready to tear Israel to shreds no matter what. These are the same people that paint the Hamas as innocent lambs.
Thats a fact that can easily be checked with some research-browsing through these Forums.
