It’s becoming more and more difficult to find that mid-point which allows me to support Israel’s moral right to exist and the equally legitimate right of the Palestinian people to also exist. Especially in light of stories like this.
Six of passengers killed in an Israeli raid on an humanitarian aid convoy bound for Gaza were shot by a single Israeli commando. He is being considered for a medal of valour by the Israeli government for saving his injured compatriots who were attacked by startled passengers with clubs, knives and even guns.
The jack-booted Israeli thug who killed six of the passengers was identified only as “Staff Sergeant S” for security reasons.
Contrary to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanhayu’s shocking assertion that all the passengers aboard the flotilla were “dangerous radicals with ties to terrorist groups,” a report from a British passenger who witnessed the deadly pre-dawn attack which took place in international waters, said some of the activists on board tried to protect captured Israeli soldiers from being set upon by a group of violent passengers, most of them believed to be Turks linked to an Islamic charity accused by Israel of having links to extremists.
