If the "peace activists" wanted to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza, why did they prepare to attack the Israeli commandos before they boarded the ship?
if the "peace activists" wanted to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza, why didn't they just follow the Israeli navy to Ashdod, and have the cargo inspected, as they were offered?Video here.
If the Israeli commandos came with the intent to injure "peace activists", why did they rappel down from a helicopter armed with paintball guns?
If the Israelis wanted to injure "peace activists", why didn't the helicopter's machine gun fire into the crowd?
If the Israelis wanted to injure "peace activists", why did the men hold off on using their lethal weapons (handguns) until they were being hurt themselves?
The blockade of Gaza is a legal military action, according to international law, as Israel is in a state of war with Hamas, who runs Gaza. Under a legal blockade, Israel has the right to board any vessel which shows that its intent is to run the blockade.
Israel has a right to prevent non-humanitarian materials from reaching Gaza, which could be used to make missiles or tooling for missiles. For example, concrete can be used to make metal molds, for casting rocket parts. Electric wheelchairs can be dis-assembled for wires, motors, switches, microprocessors, batteries, etc.
The "peace activists" where in fact running the blockade with the intent to provoke Israel into doing something embarrassing, and with the intent to use the other passengers as human shields. The "peace activists" were in fact engaged in an act of war. The "activists" who were killed were not murdered, they were shot in self defense.
