So we all know by now the story behind the attack.
I would like to present this clip, from the thermal cameras aboard a boat filming the attack on the boat.



The thing is, humanitarian activists can't fight like that.
Under many international resolution and the Geneva convention "humanitarian aid cannot be delivered using violence". This is a paradoxical situation where the people on this boat used a disguised humanitarian effort in order to inflict violence upon Israel.

There were 6 ships, carrying 10 thousand tons of aid if I'm not mistaken.
5 of the ships were approached and told they could hand over their aid and after security clearing it would reach Gaza.
5 ships complied, they are now peacefully on their way home with their humanitarian mission accomplished.

Then boat 6, that before approaching Israel had a rally on board saying that they are willing to die a myrtle death (typical).
When Israeli commandos dropped in to a peaceful, humanitarian love cruise it was not expecting a resistance like the one they were greeted with, in the clip you can see how these soldiers keep drooping in from the helicopter.
Anyone, Anywhere must admit that that was a brave feat.

In conclusion, the terrorists aboard were not there to help Gaza, they were there for more violence, they love it.

Link to your video: The URL contained a malformed video ID.

It sounds like an interesting video. It might answer some of the myriad of questions surrounding this event. I hope you're able to find it again.

These "soldiers" were illegally boarding a ship in international waters. Of course the ship's passengers and crew have the right to fight back an illegal invasion. These "soldiers" were pirates committing an unauthorized boarding of a vessel in international waters. It's also funny how everything before and after this tiny little piece of pictoral and video evidence is omitted. Let's not forget that this is after the attack by Israel had begun and these people were already fighting for their lives.

Whether or not the Humanitarians were violent.

Israel broke the law.

It is not allowed to attack any vessel in international waters. To stop them, to confiscate any materials, commendeer or any other action of force is strickly against the law.

They are in the wrong.

No violence would have happened if Israel would have not so ignorantly attacked the convoy. I say attacked, cause they killed people.

For nothing.

Pah come on.

If you are being boarded in international waters by a hostile force what else are you going to do other than fight back. It is completly irrelavant whether the Israeli soldiers were attacked or attacked first in my opinion. The cause of the deaths was the illegal Israeli hijack.

Just becasue the passengers of this ship were ready for the Israeli soldiers and gave them a fight does not somehow make them 'terrorists'. Remember it was only passengers on this ship who were the fatalities, no Israeli soldiers were killed.

Where is this proof of terrorists links? Where are the weapons that are to be funneled to Hamas?

Sorry the Israeli's had no right to board the ship in the first place. International waters. Them attacking the IDF is akin to repelling a pirate attack. I don't care what excuse they had, the IDF is in the wrong on this one.

The IDF were tackled to the ground and beat...


US forces would instantly, if tackled to the ground from Iraqi's on a boat, fire and kill those involved.

IDF radioed to the boat and told them they were landing and to stay calm, that they are taking the boat to Gaza.

I can see how bad this looks for the aid workers but Israel 'apparently' fired upon the ship first. Both sides are to blame for this incident due to their actions, Turkey will step in and mediate like a school teacher who just pulled two boys apart fighting.

It doesn't matter what Israel did before they boarded them. That act was ILLEGAL.

They had NO authority to board the ships until they were out of International Waters.

There's nothing else to say. THEY are in the wrong from the get go. Anything that transpired after that fact is the fault of Israel.

Had they NOT broken the law, none of this would have happened.

Why didn't they just put the rope on the outside of the boat, so when the IDF slid down they would go straight into the water?

If Israel had just waited till they got into Gazan waters and simply blocked and escorted the ships to Israeli ports, this would not be international news.

It would be news to the likes of me and you but it would not have casued anything like this international diplomatic firestorm.

I do not understand what Netanyahoo and his administration is trying to accomplish. They are completly isolating Israel and putting it in danger with actions like this.

Its like they are trying to make themselves appear so reckless and dangerous that no one will be willing to deal with them.

I've got to say,
I am getting so bored with your poor little Israel rhetoric.
Always the victim aren't you.
In international waters the people on that boat have every right to defend it with all means.
As it happens all they had were some sticks and a few knives.
Hardly justifies gunning them down with assault rifles.
Israel has by all definitions committed an act of piracy and terrorism.
You zionists are just as crazy as the nazi's you love to emulate.
Everybody else is wrong or they simply don't matter because they are goyem/untermensch.
I am so sick of your attitudes towards other people.
Take your anti-human Satanic Talmud and shove it.

I admire your courage trying to present all sides to this story on ATS where anti-Israeli opinion conspires to suppress any information, no matter how valid, other than that which reenforces their agenda.

Fact is nations worldwide initiate hostile acts in international waters when it serves their purpose. Be it the "drug war," anti- piracy missions, etc. The whole "international waters" argument is at best uninformed, at worst an intentional and glaring strawman

This is not to say that Israel did nothing wrong, but people jumping to conclusions before all the facts have seen the light of day is indicative of their own prejudices.

You'e going to get some flack on this thread, but not from those who are willing to consider all the facts without applying their own biases.

So your saying it doesn't matter than they broke the law, cause other people do it all the time? Is that it?

Does that mean that I can murder my neighboor and claim that millions of people do it every year so therefore I'm not to blame?

Please.

Check again..

Territorial Waters extend out 12 nautical miles and the contiguous zone extends 12 miles beyond that. News reports indicate that the boarding took place 70 nautical miles beyond the Territorial Waters or 58 miles beyond the Contiguous Zone. That puts the boarding in the Exclusive Economic Zone and not in International Waters as per CIA World Fact Book.

Anyone that watched this unfold will tell you the civillians were being shot at long before the terrorists came down the ropes from the helicopters.

You i say terrorsts because they are the real terrorists and were behind 9/11 and the zionist leaders are about to move to stage two and impose the amero on the world.

No guns were on the ships but a lot of peace protestors were quite willing to fight for a cause they beleive in and i would do the same if i was on a ship and international terrorist boarded the ship to seize food aid.

The UN can cut the crap and should ensure Gazza is able to receive international aid else they should stop wasting our time and money.

i have little time for muslims but i know right from wrong and what we have seen today is wrong.

Did I say that?

What I said is that military intervention in international waters has legitimacy and precedent.

What I find staggering in this whole situation is that no one realizes that for a certain segment of the "flotilla" it is mission accomplished beyond their wildest dreams. Their campaign achieved exactly what it set out to do. Israel biggest mistake is to have allowed themselves to be baited into a trap which was deliberately set before them. They will pay the price for their stupidity.

My comments are not to defend Israel, they are to identify the whole truth beyond kneejerk reactions.
