The flotilla of hate has found to have been smuggling weapons. It was an obvious provocation. Egypt also continues its blockade. Watch here as one of the peace niks stabs a member of the IDF. The flotilla had been repeatedly warned and still continued with the provocation. More from Rob Breakinridge. 9 terrorists were killed before bringing weapons onto Gaza. The North Koreans sunk a South Korean boat without provocation and very little happened. Israel defends itself and there is a well planned anti Israeli media blitz.
So what was the purpose of these boats? Five of the six ships were boarded without incident. The terrorists seem to have been on the sixth boat. Hiding among civilians is not an unusual terrorist trick. Loss of life is regrettable, but Israel hs a right to defend itself. The weapons being brought in by these people would have resulted in many more deaths. The CIC has some things for you to consider.
