What were these Palestinian divers up to ?Maybe getting ready to plant some mines on Israeli ships .If they got away with this it would have brought a heavy response from the IDF.Maybe this is the plan to get this war started.They also could have been decoys while the real divers continue on their mission,speculation only .Something has to give very soon .

Why were they shot? Ummm, maybe because a couple of Israelis were given weapons.

Well, lets see. The Israelis shoot children. The Israelis shoot pregnant women. The Israelis shoot peace activists. The Israelis shoot humanitarians. The Israelis shoot Palestinians. The Israelis shoot American sailors. The Israelis shoot innocent bystanders. Is it really that hard to believe that the Israelis would shoot divers?

Don't divers wear suits? So, if we see divers in California or Florida, in the morning, it would be okay to shoot them? They must have been terrorists? They could have been diving for abalone or even mussels. They could have been diving because people like to dive, including myself.

I hear that there were bullet holes in the divers but not in the wet suits.

I wonder how that happened.

Of course the autopsies done by the Palestinians revealed that the Kidneys, Liver and Heart were also all missing from each 'diver'.

I dont understand where you are coming from .This story was reported by reliable source and your trying to debunk it.It's not a conspiracy or a ufo sighting,this is a news story not something i made up .Of course they were divers it says that in the report.WTH are you on about.

Your reliable source reads like a 1st grade book, see Spot dive, Spot was a terrorist, the nice IDF Man shot him and saves us all.

There is no date of when this occured, there is no precise location as to where this occured, in fact the traditional who, what, when, how and where of journalism is completely missing.

The closest thing to some real information in the story is the name of the Palestinian Health Director, who wasn't even properly quoted.

It is not only shoddy journalism, it actually has no details that if anyone wanted to follow up to find out more could hardly know where to begin.

You probably aren't old enough to remember when reporters actually reported real news, with real hard facts, and real hard details.

This is a fluff propaganda piece.

If the incident even occured, I would not put it past the Israelis to kill some Palestinians, harvest their organs, then dump them in wet suits, and toss them in the ocean, shoot at their corpses and let the bodies wash to shore.

I find it hard to believe that the Israeli's would have not attempted to retrieve the bodies to confirm the kills. The Israelis would have also wanted to identify the men, to carry out reprisals on their families, bulldoze their homes etc. ect., or to determine if they came from another country.

This story makes it sound like they killed four possibly six men, and just sailed away to let the bodies wash out to sea.

Now what if one of them had a usb drive on them with a whole list of fellow agents, if in fact they were a terrorist?

Are we going to pretend the Israelis wouldn't have wanted to search those men?

What if the actually had bombs, are we going to pretend Israel would not have wanted to annalyse the components to see if trigger mechanisms or plastiques came from Iran or Syria?

So no this story doesn't add up.

It's a planted fluff propaganda piece as part of an over all effort to convince the world and Israelis the blockade is necessary.

I would laugh if some freedom loving, beef eating, death dealing frogmen were swimming up from behind and planted a nice present for the Israelis as they were shooting the recreational divers.

Then reality kicks in. Israel and the U.S. are giving each other handies while unconfirmed and single-sourced propaga.....i mean news spews forth.

Its on the bbc site now.

Israel navy kills four Palestinian 'militants' off Gaza
news.bbc.co.uk...




Israel's navy has shot and killed four Palestinians wearing diving gear off the Gaza coast, officials say.

The Israeli military says it believes those on board were planning a "terrorist attack".

Hamas officials in Gaza say four bodies have been recovered and two people are missing.

It comes a week after nine pro-Palestinian activists died in an Israeli raid on an aid flotilla trying to break Israel's blockade of Gaza.

Hope it wasn't just a couple of hungry Palestinians armed with spearguns and knives.


When I go diving, I do it to find my dinner.

Really did I say you wrote the report, you asked why another poster seemed to be trying to debunk the article, I explained to you why.

This is a concpiracy site, just because it appears in the mainstream media does not mean members of a conspiracy site are going to consider it authentic reporting and an honest accurate reflection of events.

You did start a discussion about it, and many of the posters are going to be critical about the article, and potentially any article you post on any topic.

I explained to you why I don't feel the article is factual.

That's part of the discussion, so do you want discussion or do you want people to simply agree with you?

I am positive the divers provoked them , they must have thrown octopuses or something at the soldiers ... otherwise we know that the israelis never shot an unarmed and defenseless person....

A country that can barely feed itself even without an Israeli blockade has people with scuba gear for fun? That does sound more plausible! (sarcasm)

It could have just been divers...but I hardly think it's the more probably explanation. It's like saying it would be normal to see people in scuba gear off of Somalia...it's not.
