forgive me if i must use some harsh words. i do not possess any power to help the palestinians nor the people being tortured by the israelis. i do not hate them generally but i hate those who’s with them and supports their idea. read this article and perhaps u would understand why so much hatred we have towards them.
Navy to do it differently next time
The Israel Navy has begun drawing lessons from last week’s takeover of the Mavi Marmara Turkish protest ship and will, in the event that additional vessels try to break the Israel-imposed sea blockade on Gaza, use different methods to commandeer them.
Last Monday, commandos from the navy’s Flotilla (Shayetet) 13 fast-roped down from Israel Air Force helicopters to the upper deck of the Mavi Marmara and encountered a group of well-trained mercenaries who attacked them with bats, metal bars and knives. The soldiers fought back and killed nine men.
i bold those words by this writer. well-trained mercs? are u kidding? a group? those are normal civilians whom some of them might had never hold any weapons in their lives ever.
u came in with heavy weapons, with helicopters and speed boats equipped with heavy artillery. u demand them to surrender. why would they? how could u ask someone to surrender when that someone is not even in your territory? u jump into their ship without their permission. so they attack. hence u attack back as response. read the bold sentence again. they used bats, metal bars and knives. do you have to shoot them mercilessly? head shots? shots at the back? was that fighting or running away from those monstrous soldiers? why can’t u use something to incapacitate them. flash bangs? smoke grenades? tear gas grenades? non-lethal bullets? and u killed nine armless men. and u say that was ok..
“We will do things differently in the future,” a senior IDF officer involved in planning such operations told The Jerusalem Post. “There are issues that have to do with the timing of such a boarding, the way to distract the attention of the people on board from what is really happening.”
differently? so this wasn’t a mistake u think? u can simply jump on any boat and start shooting and killing people? what are u?
The Post has also learned that already two years ago, the Shayetet asked the Defense Ministry’s Research and Development Directorate (MAFAT) to develop technology that can be used to stop large cargo or passenger ships, like the Mavi Marmara, at sea.
“This is not a simple task and currently there is no such technology,” a senior defense official said. “The navy has been in touch with MAFAT for a couple of years already with the goal of developing such technology.”
Advisory issued to soldiers against traveling to Turkey
Meanwhile on Sunday, the IDF issued an advisory forbidding all soldiers from traveling to Turkey. The military advisory follows a similar recommendation that was issued last week, following the navy operation, by the Counter-Terrorism Bureau in the Prime Minister’s Office.
On Sunday, Turkey’s top newspaper, Hürriyet, published pictures of Shayetet 13 soldiers, with some of them appearing helpless and possibly unconscious, badly beaten and bloodied.
The paper claimed these images were censored by Israel and were deleted from memory-cards when the activists’ cameras were in Israeli hands.
The IDF said that while the images were difficult to look at, they proved Israeli assertions that the soldiers only opened fire after they were attacked and their lives were in danger.
in danger? such act of a coward.. u could’ve used non-lethal weapons at least.. why did u jump on their ship in the first place?
One of the images showed a soldier, with blood dripping down his head, being led down a staircase, seemingly into the lower decks of the Mavi Marmara.
The IDF has identified a group of about 50 men – of the 700 on board – who were well-trained and were stationed throughout the ship, mostly on the upper deck, where they laid an ambush for the soldiers.
ambush? who initiated the attack? they were protecting themselves. can’t u even see that?
IDF releases names of passengers with terror ties
and finally comes the list. just like when the US decided to attack Afghanistan and Iraq years ago. a made up story with no evidence, end up quietly with no proof.
Also on Sunday, the IDF released a list of at least five passengers aboard the Mavi Marmara who have ties to terrorist organizations.
They were named as Fatima Mohammadi, Kenneth O’Keefe, Hassan Ansey, Hussein Orush and Ahmed Omemun. It was unclear whether they were involved in the fight with naval commandos last week.
O’Keefe, according to the IDF, is a known American-British anti-Israel activist who wanted to enter Gaza to undergo training and help establish a commando unit for Hamas.
Another passenger, identified as an Iranian-American, allegedly tried to bring illegal electronic equipment into Gaza. A French national aboard the ship was identified by the IDF as a Hamas operative.
The IDF also noted links among the passengers to Viva Palestine, the IHH and al-Qaida.
additional note there i guess.. why don’t u link them up with Jemaah Islamiah (JI) in Indonesia and Malaysia, or maybe the one in Philippines. or perhaps u might wanna link this to OIC or any Islamic communities? idiots…
i do not have the power. so my voice would be loud enough here to at least show some thoughts, open some minds. bring them to trials. judge them fairly. may Allah have its blessings upon us all. article from The Jerusalem Post.
