I believe everyone should watch those videos, especially in light of your claim that they refute the contention that the IDF didn't fire on the
activists before boarding.
I saw no evidence in them to support that contention. I saw an IDF boat, and an IDF helicopter, but neither exhibited any muzzle flashes as would be
the case if they were firing on the blockade runners. Likewise, the fact that IDF boarded is not under dispute, so the boat and helicopter are hardly
'new' evidence of anything.
I also saw several injured blockade runners. Again, no one disputes that there were 9 killed and 20 or so wounded, and that those wounds were made by
the IDF. No new 'evidence' there, either.
None of those videos indicate WHO started fighting. Considering their source, I have to wonder why that is. Seems to me if there were evidence to
support the contention that IDF fought first, it would have been released there.
No, I'm not on "team JIDF", not even jewish, as a matter of fact. What I also am not is gullible enough to think there's any sort of new, 'game
changing' evidence in those videos.
As you said yourself, "better luck next time".
