are believed on reasonable grounds to be carrying contraband or breaching a blockade, and after prior warning they intentionally and clearly refuse to stop, or intentionally and clearly resist visit, search or capture;
I have yet to see any accusations or allegations of evidence (even from all the Pro-Israeli side) that ANY of these ships were carrying "contraband".
Archeology proves without a Shadow of a doubt that the land belongs to the Jews so get over it.
he Arabs have all the land they could ever need so why do they fight for Israel? Because they are the spawn of Hitler. EVIL!!!!
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.”
A showdown with the Israeli navy appeared inevitable. Israel's deputy foreign minister, Danny Ayalon, reiterated Saturday that the ships would be intercepted, denouncing the sea convoy as a provocation and violation of maritime laws. Israel and Egypt imposed a blockade on Gaza after the Islamic militant Hamas seized the territory by force three years ago.
Can you imagine being without Cement to rebuild after being bombed for decades?

This crap happens every few months and nothing seems to change about it. The only reason this time might be different is because Israel has just stationed submarines off the coast of Iran. The U.S. has always stood behind Israel in the past and I wouldn't be supprised if the U.S. has asked Israel to get invovled with Iran in some sort of conflict so the U.S. can step in and help, without looking like A**holes. This would be a huge mistake on the part of the U.S. because the military is already spread so thin and they can't afford to fight in more conflicts. (Iran and N. Korea)
they knew there was a possibility they were putting innocent lives on the line but to them it was worth the sacrifice,
