Aaah at 5:40 on this video (pretty much a few minutes AFTER reporting injured people with head wounds and deaths on board the ship) and AFTER the white flag has been raised and AFTER it was announced they were still in International waters....
You see two men abseilling down and are then attacked by the passengers.
THIS almost certainly proves that the Israeli's are LYING when they said that their men were attacked first.
YES the crew are fighting back at this point, but this is AFTER the first deaths.

Somewhere, I reckon, Hamas chieftains are congratulating each other on a job well done. The Gaza peace ship affair, which reached a climax this morning when Israeli sailors boarded a ship and killed “activists” in a shoot-out, will undoubtedly go down in the win column in the terrorist organization’s war against Israel. Videotape of commandos putting little old ladies in Birkenstock sandals into a head lock would have been good (and apparently originally one of the propaganda aims of this delivery of unneeded “food aid”) but headlines featuring the line “16 Activists Killed by Israeli Commandos” are immeasurably better.
Just last Saturday, in fact, Hamas head Ismail Haniyeh made this strategy very plain when he told reporters, “If the ships reach Gaza, it’s a victory for Gaza. If they are intercepted and terrorized by the Zionists, it will be a victory for Gaza, too, and they will move again in new ships to break the siege of Gaza.”
Over the last few years, Hamas, controller of the Gaza strip, has increasingly discovered the joys and cost efficiencies of media war. If you’re lucky, a rocket fired from the Strip kills one or two Israeli civilians. Meanwhile a well-timed Al Jazeera or BBC videotape of Israeli military “atrocities” goes around the world. Increasingly Hamas and its international supporters have attempted to engineer such atrocity tapes; civilian lives are considered a small price to pay.
"If the ships reach Gaza, it's a victory for Gaza," Haniyeh told some 400 supporters after touring Gaza City's small fishing harbor, where several smaller vessels breaking the blockade have docked in the past. "If they are intercepted and terrorized by the Zionists, it will be a victory for Gaza, too, and they will move again in new ships to break the siege of Gaza."
The flotilla was still held up in Cyprus on Saturday. The flotilla organizers were negotiating with the authorities of Turkish Cyprus to allow 25 European Parliament members and a Holocaust survivor to board through a Turkish-controlled port in the north of the island, following a refusal by the Republic of Cyprus.

Ah Israel, showing its true colors as usual it would seem. I particularly love this little piece here:
Israeli warships stalked a flotilla carrying hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists, including a Nobel laureate and a Holocaust survivor heading for the Gaza Strip on Monday, edging closer to a naval showdown on the high seas.
That's right. The insane neo-fascist regime in control of that country is so out of line that it is willing to risk killing a holocaust survivor to stop this flotilla! Doesn't Israel use the holocaust to justify it's actions?
Really, the comparisons between a certain historical event and Palestine have been growing for a decade, but the irony of this situation has truly reached mammoth proportions now.
For those looking for a giggle:

I think you are right. Something bigger is going on at the moment... Some of the "activists" were speaking Hebrew... Im going to go through the news clips and see if I can translate...
There seems to be a world wide thing with little bits going off here and there... Seems to be a concerted effort to start something big...
All of this division and hatred instigated by TPTB has born fruit in many of us.. And we all have fell for it.. Because its at times like this that TPTB use that fruit for their aims, which by the looks of it is to flushing the whole lot of us, no matter what colour we are, down the toilet....
I think Im starting to get you dude...
