    I didn’t wonder those Zionist ass holes attacked the Flotilla.It’s been their way of living since it’s foundation

  • anon

    Having got a nice new stash of passports from the flotilla passengers (so useful if Mossad want to carry out any more assassinations as in Dubai) they now have the gall to use stolen credit cards.

    Journos credit card used after confiscated by IDF.

    PS I like the way that a few shots from catapults sent the helicopter away. Shades of David and Goliath there.

    I think it proves what the activists have said all along: that they were shot at from the helicopter before the commandos even boarded the ship.

  • mike cobley

    Stunning footage, and as we can see the activists were indeed armed – with digital cameras!

  • Mr M

    The IDF guys on speed boats are there to shoot at anybody who interferes with the descension of soldiers from the helicopter.

    It was a well planned murder.

    I find it a bit difficult to follow.

    Obviously not all of that was filmed before the Israelis came aboard. Much of it was clearly filmed after some Israelis had come aboard.

    So, was any of it at all taken before they came aboard?

    Sun June 6th, 1.45pm) The Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign has just recieved word that the five Irish prisoners from the MV Rachel Corrie, which was hijacked yesterday by Israeli forces, are due to arrive in Dublin airport at 11.20am tomorrow morning. There will be a welcoming committee to meet them and press conference to follow at 3pm in The Central Hotel, Exchequer Street, Dulin 2. Included among the five returning are Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Ireland and Denis Halliday, former UN Assistant Secretary General, Ireland

    Freda Hughes of the IPSC said, ” We are relieved that the prisoners from the MV Rachel Corrie, but we must remember that they were illegally kidnapped and taken against their will to Israel.”

    The boarding by Israeli forces is in defiance of a direct call from the Irish Government, which had formally requested Israel allow the ship to reach Gaza. On 1 June, the Irish parliament also passed an all-party motion condemning Israel’s use of military force against civilian aid ships, and demanding “an end to the illegal Israeli blockade of Gaza.”

    The 1200-ton cargo ship was purchased through a special fund set up by former Malaysian Prime Minister and Perdana Global Peace Organisation (PGPO) chairman Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and is owned by The Free Gaza Movement. Its cargo included hundreds of tons of medical equipment and cement, as well as 20 tons of paper from the people of Norway, donated to UN-run schools in Gaza.

    A group of Jewish activists in Germany are preparing to send an aid ship to the Gaza Strip, which has been under an Israeli-imposed blockade for three years.

    The group, which is the German branch of the European Jews for a Just Peace, plans to send the aid ship by the end of July.

    “We want to break the Gaza occupation and end the occupation of the West Bank as well… we as Jews want to bring the Palestinians something other than bombs,” Kate Katzenstein-Leiterer, a member of the executive committee of the group, said on Thursday.

    The ship will be carrying school supplies, musical instruments, children’s clothing and other children items that Israel has forbidden, such as sweets and chocolates, Spiegel Online reported.

    About 16 people will be onboard the vessel. However, a lot of activists form around the world are sending requests to join the group, including some volunteers from Israel, Katzenstein-Leiterer said.

    European Jews for a Just Peace has been collecting funds for the aid ship since 2008.

    After Israel’s bloody assault on the Freedom Flotilla on May 31, interest in the project has increased and donations have been flooding to the group, Katzenstein-Leiterer said.

    Edith Lutz, another member the European Jews for a Just Peace, said that the group was in contact with Israeli officials.

    “We are in contact with the Israeli government and the embassy in Berlin. We informed them a while ago,” she was quoted by AFP as saying.

    However, the group is concern over the possibility of an Israeli attack on the ship.

    Israel has put Gaza Strip under all-out blockade, preventing international aid groups from entering the region.

    On May 31, the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, which was carrying food and medical supplies to Gaza, came under fire early in the morning by Israeli navy forces in international waters.

    Twenty international activists were killed in the deadly assault and 50 others were injured in the incident.

  • mike cobley

    Just occurred to me – what happens to the ships themselves? Do they get returned, or does Israel hold onto them?

  • mike cobley

    Tut, tut, Mr anonymuss – an RPG kinda defeats the humanitarian aid purpose, doncha think? Now, a catapult to launch custard pies I could get behind that notion!

    a paintball gun leaves a coherent splodge. That on the ship is an impact spray of blood.

    I welcome your counter arguments on this blog, but in this instance I don’t accept that you yourself for one moment believe the lies you are peddling.

  • Michael Petek

    How do you know that this is the blood of the dead, not of the merely wounded or even Israelis?

    Given that the Marmara signalled to the Israelis: ‘Shut up! Go back to Auschwitz!’ how do you know the Israelis weren’t provoked?

    The organisation which owned and controlled the ship, is IHH, which is a jihad organisation.

    About those who were killed.

    Did they fall within the terms of Ummdat as-Salik (Reliance of the Traveller), manual of Islamic Law by Nuh ha-Mim Keller (trans.) page 601. If they did, then they are not protected civilians.

    “Who is obliged to fight in jihad?”

    “Those called upon are every able-bodied man who has reached puberty and is sane.”

    “I welcome your counter arguments on this blog, but in this instance I don’t accept that you yourself for one moment believe the lies you are peddling.”

    I’m not peddling lies. I’m just asking questions.

    I’m also genuinely confused about the chronology here.

    Some of them are walking around with a list of people from the flotilla. They took the list from one of the IDF. But the ship doesn’t appear to have been commandeered by this point..

    The blood on the walls was obviously due to the en masse menstruation of all females on board who’d run out of tampons.

    Joint Senate and House Resolution 666

    Whereas the Free Gaza movement is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and of the Jewish people;

    Whereas Rache Corrie got what she deserved;

    Whereas members of both Houses are on a mission from God to serve the state of Israel;

    Whereas the majority of members of Congress place Israel’s interest over those of the American people;

    Whereas the aforementioned members of Congress are a bunch of pussies when it comes to standing up to Israel;

    Whereas the Zionist Lobby has a death grip on the entire legislative branch;

    Whereas some members of the Senate, such as Charles Schumer, play roles which are “very important in the United States senate, [which] is [for us] to be shomers [guardians]?” to be a or the shomer [s] [of] Yisrael. And [we] will continue to be that with every bone in [our] bod[ies]… “;

    Whereas other members of the legislative branch, such as Deborah Wasserman-Schultz, ” want to be able to maximize [our] ability[ies] to advance the interests of Israel”;

    Whereas both chambers of the Legislative branch agree with Ms. Wasserman-Schultz when she stated “The more advocates for Israel in America, the better.”;

    Whereas other members of Congress, such as Jane Harman ?” known to many Americans as “Mossad Jane” ?” are in close contact with Israeli agents;

    Whereas the “Israel Project’s” advisory board is composed of one American actor and 22 members of the House and Senate, to wit:

    The Israelis have admitted that statement was faked.

    “Given that the Marmara signalled to the Israelis: ‘Shut up! Go back to Auschwitz!’ how do you know the Israelis weren’t provoked?”

    Go find yourself another justification.

    There is some confusion about the what the red liquid below the hatch (seen near beginning of video) was, from the reddit thread:

    HistoricaDeluxa 7 hours ago[-]

    I think you guys should know that the first guy speaking in the video, is a Norwegian and he says:

    “vi har ett lite laser sikte” translated it means “we have a small laser sight” (first i thought he said “jeg har ett…” which means “i have a” but after listening a few times i’m pretty sure it was “vi” aka “we” – this is a common way to say something in Norwegian to point out a situation – doesn’t necessarily mean they are in ownership of the laser sight, but rather that the situation has a lazer sight)

    “de har et laser sikte… jeg lurer p

  • arsalan

    Has anyone else noticed the similarities between Michael Petek denying and justifying what Israel does and what NeoNazis do when they deny what Hitler did but at the same time call for it to be done again?
