OK, let's get things in order.
Ever since 2007 when Hamas took over Gaza, after the elections in the PA (That's Palestinian Authority), those elections were not honored by Fatah
(the losing side), so Hamas took over Gaza by killing Fatah personnel (they threw them off roofs, dragged their bodies in the streets etc - didn't
hear the world protest).
Since Hamas is a terrorist organization by Israeli law (and most countries around the world also define it as such), Israel cannot legally deal with
Hamas, and the area is designated as a hostile area, and is subject to a naval blockage. Blockades are legal when you are at war with someone... look
up international law... it's there.
As for the fishermen, I have no doubt some fishermen actually get fish, but some of them are used to smuggle weapons through the sea... what happens
is that smugglers, usually coming from Egypt which is really not far, drop barrels that float towards Gaza, the "fishermen" just get them and come
back... there have been several occasions where the Israeli navy intercepted them...
This video was probably edited for propaganda purposes - there have been numerous such videos distributed by the Arabs throughout the years... there
are many examples, the name Pallywood is a good name... but these guys sometimes deserve an Oscar (there has been one funny movie that shows a
"Palestinian Funeral", where they here a plane above, and run for cover dropping the "body", which falls off the stretcher, gets up, returns and
gets back on it, and the "Funeral" continues...)
Do you honestly think that if the army would have wanted to that ship would have stayed floating and anyone would have been kept alive?! what never
ceases to amaze me with people here that you scream "genocide" "atrocities" and all that but had Israel really wanted to kill every man, woman and
child in Gaza, it could have done so in about 15-20 minutes, without risking a single soldier...
Israel is a democracy, I know, I live there.
Oh, and Gaza has a border with Egypt... their Arab "brothers"... and when Hamas killed an Egyptian soldier a couple of months ago, the Egyptians
killed a bunch of Palestinians by shooting at them from their side of the border, I never heard "Atrocities!" "genocide!", it seems that Jews are
not allowed to defend themselves.
Enough with the hate people... enough... until some of you lived here, and know what it's like, don't claim to understand (either side)
