Didn't both Israel and Egypt offer to pass those commodities through the land crossings under those activists' supervision?
It's just not like you imagine it, it just isn't.

Looking at the videos, and knowing the IDF, I believe the IDF didn't shoot prior to boarding.
What, knowing the IDF I'm surprised they didn't just open fire from the choppers or gun boats aka USS Liberty..
They disarmed the commandos, threw some of the weapons overboard, but did take a pistol, not sure where that went, no shots fired.
Lynching? they took the subdued commandos below deck then gave them medical aid.
all of this is on video if you take the time to watch it, not the edited MsM, i mean the entire raw footage starting before the attack and going right through to the point where commandos are shooting through a door.
Also international waters and the ships were inspected before they left port and to this day, no weapons, just random crap you'd find on a ship.
P.S. no one snipes from a helicopter at sea, red dots are sub machine guns
Israelis get up beside one of the ships and start tossing flash bangs over, one of which bounces back down and explodes in the IDF ship
Yup, even fight there. I suppose the footage of the American being killed is faked too? (you don't see it, but the activists claim that's when Faruk got it.)
And what did they expect the IDF to do once they completely overpower the commandos? Turn around and let them go to Gaza?
Anyway, It doesn't matter.. Israel PLANNED the entire assault to create maximum confusion.. They used that confusion to KILL activists...
There is NO other explanation for why Israel attacked the boat in darkness..
A peacefull boarding would obviously have been more successfull in daylight..
IMO, they achieved the desired result..
Not all facts support your hypothesis, and you have to admit there are other logical explanations..
Why can't you just watch the raw video and tell me when you hear the first shots being fired?
