i have read quite a few post now as to why the idf didnt board in daylight...

well, maybe because they are pro's at what they do, so knew where most of the militants would be, awake, while the innocents slept, and that they will be waiting for the boarding parties to arrive, so even less casualties than was necessary...

which makes me want to ask this question about this ship and the others in the flotilla previously, how many people were onboard these vessels, besides the crew and certified-recognised aid workers ????

seems like the signals have been jammed so I would assume the Corrie is being boarded as we speak.

Looks like Israel stayed the course and diversion of the Corrie is happening.

Hopefully the Corrie and its passengers stay the course and stay true to their words and no lives are lost.

I never got into twitter - but it's crazy being able to find out information from a ship at sea from one minute to the next, in real time. Good to hear no injuries...

See what happens when you don't have a bunch of thugs onboard?

People do not come to harm.

Kind of proves the whole was it self-defence on the part of the commandos or were they murderers intent on killing in cold blood doesn't it?
