1. oh dear peace demonstrators with knives
ghostq   (05.31.10)
sound like sucide mission to me. just wonder if Brit chritian demonstrator was one of them does he get 72 virgins?
2. The outcome was known
Noel ,   Cork, Ireland   (05.31.10)
Play with fire and get burnt. They cannot say they were not warned. The next step by the militant aid workers will be to get their governments to call in Israeli ambassadors to lodge diplomatic protests. The governments have not had the guts to either condemn or support the actions of these convoys yet will back these criminal actions. It is all so familiar. Congratulations to the IDF for the professional approach taken in confronting this attack. The aid workers have the blood of those killed on their hands.
3. Reports indicate that Israeli soldiers encountered violence
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (05.31.10)
directed at them by the "peaceful" passengers on the boats, including the use of firearms, gas and knives. Indeed, reports indicate that some of the passengers attempt to lynch Israeli soldiers. Several Israeli soldiers had to be hospitalized at Tel-Hashomer and Rambam hospitals with major body wounds that they suffered. In the face of this, of course, the soldiers on the boats needed to respond in kind in the process of protecting themselves as part of the obviously legal takeover of the ships that broke international law and refused to heed Israel Defense Forces' (IDF) warnings. Let us hope this will be a signal that provocation doesn't pay, and that a Hebrew soldier will not stand still while being attacked by those aggressively hoping to bring about conflict to the region.
4. the bubble and the world
Michael ,   Haifa   (05.31.10)
Israel no longer lives in the reality of the world, but rather in a self-created bubble of self-righteousness
5. Israeli propaganda
Resistor   (05.31.10)
What Israel and IDF do best=attack unarmed civilians
7. 10 minutes of fame for 10 body-bags.
Ariel ,   Europe   (05.31.10)
8. yes they are "activists"..
Alex ,   UK   (05.31.10)
..and those who planned that are "charities", and they transfer "humanitarian aid" to "starving" Gaza, - and actions of Israel are "crime" (still waiting for "massacre"). Another time Western useful idiots served as human shields and cover for jihadis who use them against Israel, as ramming cattle.
9. Go IDF GO, Bravo!
Yehoshua ,   Tzfat   (05.31.10)
B"H To all goys and lefties: This time we are armed. Not like in Germany and Poland. No more going to the slaughterbank. Watch out, we will defend ourselves with guns this time!
10. Listen Up World
Reuven Brauner ,   Raanana, Israel   (05.31.10)
Israel is surrounded by enemies who wish to destroy her. Not having controlled the inflow of weapons to Lebanon enabled the Hezbalah to accumulate, and ultimately fire, thousands of missiles into Israel resulting in damage, destruction and deaths. Not having controlled the inflow of weapons to Gaza led to thousands of missiles fired into Israel resulting in damage, destruction and deaths. This provocative flotilla is either a ruse and they are trying to smuggle in weapons or to test Israel's resolve. We are not fooled by what they are trying to do, and will not allow it. Israel can ill afford to take any chances with those who come to support the hostile and militant terrorists of Gaza. Their true intentions are evil. We know that, in the end, they will use this route to again bring in more serious missiles and guns for the purpose of killing our innocent, peace-loving Jews. Dear world. Do not be fooled. We aren't.
11. like everything connected with palestinians, this is a FAIL
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (05.31.10)
it's sort of funny how stupid are when it comes to the apartheid terrorist palestinians in gaza.
12. Piracy 101 for African Pirates
chris ,   USA   (05.31.10)
13. poor weak show
Ken   (05.31.10)
Israel endangered its own people by this weak response - the ship(s) should have been bombed from the air. A government which doesn't protect its own soldiers, preferring to treat vicious enemies with kid gloves deserves no one's respect nor support.
14. Hey ATİLLA - is it time for us to support the PKK?
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (05.31.10)
With all of your Turkish agitation and trying to instigate war between Israel and the Palestinians, maybe we should send an aid convoy to the Kurds and Armenians in Turkey? I mean, we support out Kurdish and Armenian brothers against the illegal Turkish occupation of their homelands, and we support their legitimate right to resist the Turkish occupation by any means. We'll simply send a "humanitarian aid" convoy to Turkish occupied Kurd areas - that should be ok with you, right ATİLLA ? Or will the Turkish army prevent this humanitarian aid from arriving? Will the Turkish army do its best to attack and stop the convoy? ATİLLA, I bet the Turks would kill all of the "peace activists", don't you think?
15. "Peace activists"
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (05.31.10)
What do these retards do if they get into a Police control? Take the officer's weapon and try to kill him?
16. Why did you even board the ship?
Swiss   (05.31.10)
It was clear they were just waiting for you! Now you have another PR disaster. Didn't you want to avoid just that? Couldn't you just block the ship's way? The islamists planned the whole thing to make you look bad and now they have succeeded.
17. 20 dead, to 16,to now 10????
david ,   RSA   (05.31.10)
18. Disable ships instead of boarding them
Lemmings Hotline ,   sd usa   (05.31.10)
Israel already knew the nature of the activists and their intentions - no suprise. However, in knowing this, Israel should not have walked into the media trap. Instead, it would be better to disabling the ships at sea without confronting the passengers. Israel always falls into the trap in the PR war. Now they can prove to the world Israel is the agressor
19. #6 We've heard it all before, Atilla
Janice Cohenי ,   ירושלים   (05.31.10)
20. Keep all captives until Gilad Shalit is freed

Kamal ,   Turkey   (05.31.10)
22. Turkey
David ,   California, USA   (05.31.10)
The time is coming for this nothing of a country to be reminded of its place in the world.
23. im actually about commrnts 4 through 6
Evia ,   Yavne,Israel   (05.31.10)
for once the people who oppose Israel REALLY have nothing to say for themselves except and empty phrase like "israeli propaganda" and an analphabetical turk who could barely put together a coherent sentence. israeli propaganda please..right so we killed 10 people and then we knifed ourselves and fatally injured one of our own to cover our actions. the world is never going to wake up. all we have to do is stay strong and trust in our supporters which united states is a part of no longer.
24. Gaza ship attack
Larry Finn ,   Dublin, Ireland   (05.31.10)
I have generally been supportive of the israelis position, understanding in some ways that there was rights and wrongs on both side, not seen it as black or white. My doubts have been growing since the attack on Gaza last time, as I thought they were provoked, but thought their response was over the top and caused unneccesary civilian deaths. I am horrified that they could shoot in cold blood civilians on board a civilian ship in international waters. They had no right to demand access to the boat on international waters and to say they were reacting in self defense boarding this ship is unbelievable. If their were contraband ie guns and supplies for the militants, then they should produce it. This will only prove to the anti israeli side that the Israelis over react at all times and shoot on site anybody who opposes them. No Israeli was killed though reports mention one serious injury, so why shoot ten/sixteen people. This whole operation was dealt with stupidly. Why send in specialist army team I have never attended an anti Israeli march, but I expect to attend one this evening not to march against the israelis but to to show my support for those innocent people killed in this operation
