"Peace" activists attack Israelis

It's apparent from this video that the passengers on the Mavi Marmara made a premeditated attack on the Israeli commandos as they boarded the ship. For a more complete sequence of the boarding, go here. and here. This is what the organizers of the flotilla wanted: an international incident that would fan anti-Israeli sentiment.

I didnt realize you could make a premeditated attack on men illegally boarding your ship in international waters. In most cases, thats called "self defense against pirate invaders"

Agreed Rob. What the world, and "anonymous" fail to understand is that Israel is a sovereign country. It can take action to defend itself and given its small size and long history must be strategic. Also what I love is how come these same people slamming Israel are completely silent about China's continued killings and trying to stamp out Tibet? Where is the outrage??? Nothing, zero, zippo. Remember Israel is the only true democracy in the middle east. If you are a gay person living in any other country other than Israel and gay you are deep in a closet and if found out you are dead.

Yes, and it's a good image of what really happened. Of the six ships in the flotilla, this is the only one that had an armed mob greeting the Israeli commandos.
