Incorrect and simplistic claim.
Read Israel's Turkel commission report.

The one you are thinking of was shot in the knee.

After the bullet was recovered from his knee, it was determined that it was not of
a type presently in use by the Israeli military. However, in the Chief of Staff's general
testimony, the Commission was informed that the bullet was 9 mm in caliber and
had previously been in use by the IDF until 2007.
Again, without ballistics tests it is not possible to confirm which weapon fired the bullet.

The report itself concludes...
However, the Commission did not find that the evidence point conclusively to the fact that
the IHH activists were using firearms which they brought on board the Mavi Marmara themselves.


Under these circumstances, the Commission cannot establish whether IHH activists brought
firearms on board the Mavi Marmara.

So Israel's investigation of itself cant even come out and say for sure that the flotilla
volunteers had guns. If you have evidence that the Turkel Commission didnt have, you
should have made it known at the time.

looks like a camera tripod to me, which seems far more reasonable than a gun since there were many journalists aboard

not to mention, if it was a gun, it would have to be something pretty big judging by the picture. really, it being a gun makes no sense. how would he have smuggled something that large on? why bring something that would draw attention? and why carry it around in open view of a camera? just doesn't really add up.

It looks like an Uzi to me.

It is hanging upside down and at an angle from the black strap.

The black strap is not a part of whatever is in his hand. You can see it connects to some kind of pouch/bag.
