Knives weren't daggers or as say army knives. And of course stick weren't clubs. And now the IDF spokeswoman announced it was a organized terrorist team. But ten to fifteen dead surely is a sign of excessive use of violence by Israelis.
But i think it needs time to know what was all behind this operation because Israel isn't that naive to act without logic and foresee of political out come specially with it's important ally in region Turkey. Turkey made a strong statement alongside France and Spain i think and it's not good for a state which is known for killing 1500 people in Gaza not long ago.
But if it turns to be a JUST attack on a Humanitarian ship then i think Israel without support from US and IPEK would be in deep tide.
Turkey is/will be supplying Iran with enriched uranium and bomb triggers for the purpose of nuclear weapons production.
Israel is in the right here.
In reply to Foxy:
No reason could justify coming on board with that firepower and doing what they did. This is -in the least- morally wrong. Plus, there was a force ready in Ashdod harbor to intercept the convoy once landed, why send a force (Let alone a commando trained force) into the sea and assault the ships, in close quarters? (if there was weapons on-board as they claim) it's tactically wrong.
