31. #19 - Israel has scared you already, don't make up fantasies
Historical Observer ,   USA   (05.31.10)
Turkey wouldn't attack Israel as much as Iran would hope from all this. We have close political ties. Keep dreaming that Israel is weaker than you, it helps the world laugh at your insecurities:)
32. Designer Martyrs
Reality Check ,   USA   (05.31.10)
Supplies can be brought overland. They will be checked for weapons. This was a stunt designed to delegitimize the blockade of terrorist hamas, smuggle weapons for use against civilians, and produce martyrs for CNN. Another arab 'success'.
33. blatent piracy
marko ,   tel aviv   (05.31.10)
this attack by the navy is nothing but piracy in international waters
34. And this is the truth according to Turkish media?
Rafael ,   Yerushalayim, Israel   (05.31.10)
From what I read, the report of 2 deaths is by Turkish media without any outside confirmation. Since when does the Ynet rely on Turkish media to report the truth?
35. Why were the people on the so-called peace boats carrying kn
Lioness ,   Israel   (05.31.10)
These "peaceful humanatarian ships" which were supposed to be carrying aid and most probably several terrorists attacked Israeli commando's with knives and metal bars.
36. Hei peter from Vienna, would expect lots better than Austria
sigal gross   (05.31.10)
Hei peter from Vienna, one would expect lots better than the way Austria treated Jews, not that many years ago
37. I wonder if the good people here,
Gil ,   Israel   (05.31.10)
I wonder if the good people here, Would let a mob attack you with Big long Sticks, Clubs, Iron Rods, and Knifes
38. #19 you have to be kidding
david ,   new york   (05.31.10)
lol...turkey is no match for regional superpower israel. in any case, these flotilla morons got what they deserved.
39. pay attention to the videos
john ,   italy   (05.31.10)
you will be able to see some faked "casualties". its amazing to see that the world is beliving them..
40. What did these 'activists' expect to happen?
redbourn ,   Arad, Israel   (05.31.10)
Before setting out, they knew that there was a naval blockade. They were warned to turn back or be escorted to Ashdod and they refused. They resisted when their boats were boarded. Did they think that Israel would just say, "Oh well, if you're determined then OK, then you can enter" ? Every country in the world would respond in a similar way to people trying to enter a naval blockade. Hopefully the 'activists' that promised to come next week will have understood the folly of their ways. Oh,and if commandos had boarded the ships with guns blazing then there would obviously be a lot more than two 'activists'. Michael
41. realy naughty of them to enter a children birthday party...
42. the most stupid operation in history
the way the operation was carried out is more then stupid and causes immense damage to israels image.
43. Raza, go and have a cold shower....
Jim ,   Israel   (05.31.10)
You are an insult to stupidity
44. Well that's just great.
Dan R ,   Washington, DC   (05.31.10)
Now Israel is going to be forced to ease the blockade on Gaza. Netanyahu could have done it of his own volition and made it look like a matter of national policy. Now he is going to be pushed around into the change -- or risk looking like a thug. Show no mercy with Hamas, but leave the damn aid flotillas alone.
45. #1 they poked a coward rat
Mamu ,   Lebanon   (05.31.10)
46. Israel, harness the media with facts!
Agent 007.5 ,   USA   (05.31.10)
Israel, harness the media: 1. Activists were warned not to cross into waters where Israel maintains sovereignty under the Oslo Accords 2. Israel has a right to search for weaponry and other prohibited cargo 3. Activists were given the PEACEFUL option of unloading at Ashdod for land transport via normal channels into Gaza. They chose CONFRONTATION!!! 4. Gaza is well supplied with food andn supplies. It is not starving. 5. Lucky for idiot activists, they are dealing with Israel. Try this moronic stunt with Russia, N. Korea, Egypt, etc 6. This was NOT a peaceful convoy, deadly force (stabbing) was used by activists against Israeli commandos. BLOOD IS ON THE HANDS OF THE ACTIVISTS!!!
47. #17 Jeff
david cohen ,   China   (05.31.10)
where u there to see what to took place there and who did what? Ynet surely was not there. IS YNET OWNED BY ARABS? maybe so.
48. to #15 but they direction was Israel :)
ghostq   (05.31.10)
unless their boat is out of controll and surf aimlessly to all direction whith out reaching nowhere, I find it so funny the way you hide your hte to Israel behind ethics that even your country doesn't fulfil. :)
49. to #23 indeed they barely had supply on those boats
ghostq   (05.31.10)
there were more cameras than food or medicins.
50. #8 Even haaretz reports that 10 have died so far. Are they
Peter ,   Vienna-Austria   (05.31.10)
Lying too???
51. #28 You are either naive or simply stupid.
Peter ,   Vienna-Austria   (05.31.10)
The flotilla was in international waters,and not in israeli waters. Gaza is a sovereign state,not israeli territory. No one in the world would attack innocent people for bringing in food and medical supplies to another group of innocent people.
52. The BS flotilla comes to an end
Cameron ,   USA   (05.31.10)
It had to be done. Credit to Israeli forces for putting a wrap on this naval stunt.
53. civilians?
mattan ,   planet earth   (05.31.10)
when civilians interfere with a nation protecting itself from terrorism and break laws put in place by a democracy, they are no longer innocent. they might not wear uniforms, but they are not innocent civilians. the modern Jew can not be pushed around by the world any longer. security is number one. terrorism is barbaric, and those who side with the terrorists are not human. they are lucky only two are dead. if you mess with the military of any other country i am sure you would have more casualties.
54. Kol Hakavod! Great job IDF - we stand with you!
Shaul R ,   USA   (05.31.10)
55. Great Job Israel!
richard ,   usa   (05.31.10)
These are enemies of Israel and deserve to be sunk!
56. all the Jew haters
jb ,   canada   (05.31.10)
are out in full force from those freedom-loving areas like Syria, "Palestine"-hahahaha and their running dogs from Canada and the US. No facts yet just a lot of hysterics from hose that planned to blacken Israel's name no matter what; instead of helping the Gazans. Well you buggers are true to form and so predictable. You can all go to hell along with those boats!
57. Stupidity Is Not a Good Racial Genetic Survival Trait
Roy ,   USA   (05.31.10)
If you are supposed to be "Peace activists," and are stupid enough to attack an armed military commando under orders to arrest lawbreakers and defend himself from attack with deadly force, stupidipity you deserves a painful death. If the Arab-kissers had sat on deck with their hands raised singing "Kumbayah," they could have had their "15 minutes of fame press moment," and lived to tell about it!
58. G-d Bless Israel and damn the enemies!
Frank ,   USA   (05.31.10)
59. Thank G-d We are Rid of Olmert and Have Proper Leadership
Meir Elazar   (05.31.10)
Olmert and Tzipi would have screwed this up just like they screwed up Lebanon 2 and everything else. Let this be a lesson to HAMAS, PRC, IJ, and all the other terrorists and their supporters. The purpose of the blockade is to stop the terrorist attacks against Israel and punish the society that fosters terror against us. PALs have a history of 100 years of terrorist attacks against us, pioneering hijackings, and being the focal point of world terror. The HAMAS Charter openly and uncompromisingly advocates the destruction of Israel and murder of all Jews/Israelis. If this is what they want, then they deserve to receive exactly what they advocate against us. And let all those who support these terrorists suffer the maximum punishment possible. Furthermore, we saw the world do little as we were murdered during the Holocaust. They only stopped the Nazis to save themselves and not us. They have lost all legitimacy and we must do whatever is necessary to survive. The opinions of these Anti-Semites are irrelevant if they will condemn us no matter what we do, we might as well do the utmost against those who support terrorist. I would sink those ships without thinking twice. Fortunately we now have a govt which will not capitulate to terrorists and terrorist supporters. Lets give them all we have and teach them a lesson once and for all. Our survival is not compromisable and we will do everything to fight terrorists and those who support them.
60. Another Israeli War Crime
Sol Greenfeld ,   USA   (05.31.10)
I am absolutely ashamed and disgraced by my families association with israel. This has to end now. The bi-national one state solution is the only fair outcome for both sides. Enough is enough already.
