Lets tally up the dead. As usual it's lopsided.

...they might have been in international water by a few miles, so im not saying it was perfect, but if i admit that, surely u guys can admit that they werent going to turn around at the last minute and not try to "bust the blockade" as they had been claiming to want to do for weeks before...

lol by the way at all these interpretations of the video- it "didnt match the event" its "fake" lol.... please keep those reasons comming id like to hear some more.
since when are life vests, 2 gas masks and metal poles considered riot gear?

Gaza flotilla attack: Israeli ambassador compares raid to Second World War - Telegraph

In an interview with Fox News, he described the operation, in which nine people died, as "perfectly legal, perfectly humane – and very responsible".

He defending the attack in open waters, saying: "Israel acted in accord with international law. Any state has the right to protect itself, certainly from a terrorist threat such as Hamas, including on the open seas.

"The US acted under similar international law when it fought the Germans and the Japanese in World War Two."


His comments came as Israel began deporting hundreds of activists seized from the flotilla, including more than 120 activists from Muslim countries who were taken to the border with Jordan early this morning.

There is no immediate word on the fate of 42 British nationals who were on the convoy of ships.

US President Barack Obama has spoken to Recep Tayyip Erdogan, prime minister of Turkey, which had branded the attack a "bloody massacre", the White House said.

Why do you double-post to add this?

Quit being a troll and argue your side because you're the only one offering the counter-view. Do yourself a favor and stick to the topic instead of trying to crack jokes.

You can thank the hardliners like yourself who promote the 'bomb Iran' line.

Nothing like a common enemy to unite a country.

How would we have avoided conflict with Iran if they had elected "that mousavi dude"? He wants to continue to enrich uranium which is Iran's right under the NPT and something we can't seem to accept. It's not like he's a puppet and will do everything the u.s. wants him to do. Well, whatever mother israel decides the u.s. wants him to do.
