I'm not saying you should take everything the military says at face-value, they do make mistakes every now and then and there are also some members of the military you could class as "bad apples". The Israeli military will sort this out internally, if disciplinary measures are required they will be dispensed.
Israel is always right thanks for the US deceiving media, none of you would answer this way if you lived in Palestine, I don't even care anymore what anyone thinks, it's the media, I can't say anything.
Yeah, its funny like how media can put things, like for example if we did the same thing everyone would be like omg these people are so barbarian.
But if it's Israel it's okay, it's their right to do that.
I can understand wanting to control who gets through a blockade but this is overkill. If you want to block a ship use your own ships to block the way.
Sending commandos on board . . . that's not enforcing a blockade, that's extermination. Someone's been playing too much Call of Duty 4.
I don't like our government... but well we are stuck with them
for 4 years. more stupid choices will be made (stupid people in
the stupidity showed up with this commando stuff they did.
too much hate from our side and from the non-Israeli Arabs.
why do we need to fight all the time god dam.

They knew the risks when they tried to bypass a military blockade of a militarily occupied area. They only have themselves to blame for the deaths incurred. Next time, try a better place to send yourselves for aid, even though the locals anywhere will kill you and yours for whatever you have just so they can sell it.
There's a reason no one should ever send brand new books, notebooks/notepads, pens, pencils, crayons, etc. to impoverished nations for the kids' schooling, because the kids' parents will sell it for a scrap of food and ensure continued poverty and lack of education.
Similarly, sending aid to places where you've no right to tread is also pointless, as shown here.
Israeli forces enforced the blockade and used what intelligence they had as they saw fit. Don't tell me you'd hesitate if someone said some guy you never met was armed but didn't tell you it was only a knife, because you'd damn well shoot first and ask questions after regardless.
I'd say this is Darwin of the Month award material, but sadly enough I think they were being too naive and stupid for even that.
And I strongly suggest you rethink your mistrust of your country Bonzay, they've hung on for over two decades against constant attacks from all other nations in the middle east (Being a Jewish nation in possession of the Holy Land Jerusalem surrounded by Islamics and the associated extremists and hateful populaces thereof), and despite inferior numbers compared to their aggressors, they've always come out on top of every conflict due to their ingenuity and reliability. Your military knows its ****, and uses it right, be it equipment, intelligence, or weapons related.
Not that I care, America's headed into the worst state its been in over a century with Mr. Big doing things the way he is right now. Freaking idiot wants to stop the V.A. from giving medical benefits to our soldiers because "They knew the risks when they volunteered themselves". Bull, they enlisted in the military, they didn't volunteer to get maimed and die for you just so you could say "You got hurt, boo hoo, go cry to someone who gives a **** about the people who keep this country safe", you pompous ass.
A guy from Israel disagreed with what Israel did, it's just obvious that it was wrong, I didn't even continue reading a post that defends a violation of human rights.
