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

As SOON as the ISraeli soldiers hit the deck they are viciously attacked with wood and chairs.
Yes from 300ft up in the air on a grainy black & white video feed, I can really see the deranged look in the activist's eyes as they are completely shocked and in awe of strange military figures coming down from a helicopter overhead who haven't made their presence or intentions known.
More to the point, armed to the teeth as if they were attacking a heavily fortified bunker.
And you expected them to do what?
Clearly the murder of 20 Aid Workers is justified. Open & Shut Case.

At 1:03 in your video it shows one of the passengers with a gas mask.
Wouldn't this indicate that the aid workers were anticipating a confrontation?
I think that while many are blaming Israel, they should also keep in mind that these aid workers knew they were going to be confronted and had plans to resist and are just as much at fault for the events that folded out.
And in this video you can see what looks like masked Hamas militants, or whatever the PC term is for them at,

Why would European politicians and a Holocaust survivor embed Iranian or Hamas terrorists on their ships?
The Israeli ships AND helicopters radioed their flotilla's multiple times and got response back...
So they knew damn well who was boarding there ship and for what reasons.
You mean to tell me if they dropped 5 commandos and all of the crew members backed up and sat down, yes even on their own ship, and waiting for it to arrive in Gaza then the Israeli Commando's would have STILL shot them???......

This whole situation does not appear to be as cut and dry as I first suspected.
Before everyone jumps on board the anti-Israel train, we should wait for more substantive accounts of what actually occurred. The IDF's video release clearly showed the soldiers under attack once they boarded the ships.

I really hope Obama disconnected the International Phone in the White House. The US needs no part of this on either side. Let Israel deal with it's actions without it's pimp there to protect it please.
