"Humanitarian, Peace Activists" Lynch Israeli Naval Men

You probably won’t find this anywhere in the mainstream media, but perhaps here is the place for the true account of what happened on the high seas in the middle of last night…
*
A group of terrorist-supporting organizations, comprised of the "Free Gaza Movement" - an international group of pro-Palestinian "activists;" people affiliated with the International Solidarity Movement - a pro-Palestinian group that often sends international "activists" into battle zones; and the IHH, a Turkish aid group with terrorist links, organized a propaganda blitz on Israel, in the guise of a "humanitarian aid / freedom flotilla mission" to the Gaza Strip.
*
Their real mission: to embarrass Israel by either forcing it to attack the flotilla, or allowing it to pass through the Israeli-imposed blockade of the waters around Gaza, in effect since the terrorist group Hamas forcibly took control of the Strip three years ago. It should be noted that under the Oslo Accords, Israel maintains sovereignty over the Gaza Coast, and does not allow ships to approach without searching them for arms.
*
The flotilla sailed on Sunday, more than two days later than planned and without two of the ships that did not join because of malfunctions. One of the "peace-loving" terrorists, activist Huwaida Araf, proclaimed from the ships as they set out: "We fully intend to go to Gaza regardless of any intimidation of threats of violence against us. They are going to have to forcefully stop us."
*
In addition, last week, the father of Gilad Shalit, kidnapped 4 years ago by Hamas in Gaza, begged the "peace-loving" flotilla to bring a letter to Hamas to transfer to his son. He even offered to mediate with the Israeli government in exchange. The flotilla "humanitarians" refused to take this letter with them or cooperate with any humanitarian gesture towards the kidnapped soldier, in any way. This includes the basic rights of Red Cross visits to the captive, which have been consistently denied for the last four years.
*
So last night, even though International Law allows for countries to ask suspicious boats to identify themselves, the vessels' passengers did not cooperate, and called the move "scare tactics" on their streamed broadcasts.
*
The Navy commander took charge of the event from a command post in the sea. He ensured that the six ships received warnings to turn back and an invitation to sail to the Ashdod Port to complete the delivery of the aid through land crossings after an Israeli security check. In all these cases they were firmly turned down.
*
THEN, when the naval men boarded the ships, they found that the passengers on the Gaza-bound flotilla were laying in wait for them to board.
*
On the largest boat, called 'Marmara', there were 570 people, who were waiting for the arrival of the soldiers armed with long clubs, metal bars and knives. The Navy fighters, who arrived with ladders and came down from ropes, encountered what they described as a near lynch. There was serious violence. It is clear from the footage on Turkish TV that as the Israeli commandos came down on ropes they were attacked with metal bars and poles. One soldier was seen trying to protect himself from the attack. Every soldier that came down was attacked.
"This is not the activity of peace activists," to put it mildly…
*
They then attacked IDF soldiers, opening fire on them. One IDF soldier was critically wounded. A crew member reportedly snatched a gun from an IDF soldier and then opened fire on the troops. Another soldier was stabbed in the stomach with a sharp object. In all, four Navy fighters were injured, one of them sustaining serious wounds. The injured were evacuated to Israeli hospitals by helicopters.
*
The flotilla of ships on its way to Gaza "was an armada of hate and violence," charged Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon at a Jerusalem press conference on Monday morning. "It was a premeditated and outrageous provocation" and its organizers had ties to global Jihad, al Qaida and Hamas, said Ayalon. "Their intent was violent, their methods were violent and their results were unfortunately violent," Ayalon said.
*
Is it any wonder that some of these "peace-loving, humanitarian activists" were killed?

The arabs and Obama will use any means possible to undermine Israel. Whether it is the Land for Peace formula, the NPT conference, the Gaza flotilla. And the hypocritical EU will blindly support them. It is an everlasting truth that Esav hates Yaakov and that Ishmael is a wild ass of a man.

I don't think this one is on the Arabs. This is a communist media event.

If we had responsible governance American citizens who were aboard would face charges for aiding and abetting terrorists.

The ISM is nothing but a bunch of thuggish terrorist loving and supporting henchmen.
