Eric.... ,   Israel...   (05.31.10)
trouble you will find it .If you come in peace you will find it.The Turkish goverment is responsible ,they let this happen.Israel should leave Turkey altogether.Friends dont treat friends this way.Israeli tourists should not go to Turkey.They hate us anyway and they only want our money.
6. Act of War
Outraged in Sydney ,   Australia   (05.31.10)
I can't imagine why Turkey allowed ships flying its flag to enter into Israeli waters without permission. In many nations this act alone is considered an act of war. Who, in their right mind would travel on a ship into another nations' EEZ with the intent to act in violation of international law! As soon as the ships refused to radio in who they were and where they were going, they lost their civilian status. As soon as they raised weapons against the Israeli Navy, they become combatants.
7. Who does this serve?
Annie ,   Israel   (05.31.10)
The best way to know who instigated this - just ask yourself who has the most to gain by the end result. Clearly, not Israel. These people were looking for a fight and they got one. They planned just how much provocation to use (clubs, knives and grabbing the Israeli weapons) in order to get a response and were camera ready to record the wailings and bloodshed.
8. Dirty terrorists
Me ,   J'lem   (05.31.10)
Now they'll turn it around on Israel.
9. So Gaza is Free but its water is not. Now we know
Jack. A   (05.31.10)
10. If Israel wanted him dead, he'd be dead.
Janice Cohen ,   ירושלים   (05.31.10)
Assassanation my arse.
11. if it were an attempt to assassinate salah, he'd be dead
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (05.31.10)
but he's alive so we know that is just rubbish rumor-mongering.
Zionist ,   Miami   (05.31.10)
on the internet now! Unless Israel takes the PR offensive, their story that the IDF attacked unarmed civilians will gain traction!
13. Gaza is not free...
Carsten Schmidt ,   Germany   (05.31.10)
... as long as the Hamas terrorists are in power.
14. To #6 Will your PM Rudd agree with you?
David ,   Karmiel, Israel   (05.31.10)
I couldn't agree with you more but your Government is probably going to condemn Israel. Remember the Dubai thing and how you PM took the word of the Police Chief of a country at war with Israel with any evidence and saw fit to blame Israel? Regrettably, Oz is in the pockets of the Muslims just as Europe is!
15. If Israel wanted Salah dead he would be!
Israeli ,   The Galilee   (05.31.10)
16. undoubtedly the greatest PR stunt
Larry ,   Los Angeles   (05.31.10)
kol haKavod to the Arabs for this great publicity stunt. We must salute the arabs after giving the world the suicide bomber, now they give us the suicide PR stunt. May G-d protect us from what is next on their list!
17. "They wanted to kill Salah"
DT ,   TA Israel   (05.31.10)
Pity they didn't
18. 72 virgins & The Sheik Raed...
Moshe   (05.31.10)
About time he meet his girlfriends
19. the shakh of peace he participate in so many violant
ghostq   (05.31.10)
riots only 3 months ago he got out of jail and already is out there planning how to hurt people sound like Israel shouldn't let him out of jail in the first place.
20. They wanted to kill Salah.....Ha! Ha!!
Israeli 2   (05.31.10)
They should have.
21. To #6: Correction
Turkman   (05.31.10)
They were entering into Palestinian water not Israeli. And don't brag much about not killing an unarmed personl!!! Everybody can kill an innocent civilian which I'm sure you are (Israel, I mean) is very good at. Sleep well tonight. Tomorrow is a different day.
22. If Raed Salah was targeted he would be dead by now!
Typical Arab lies and propaganda which works mainly on hateful racists who are always looking for trouble. If Israel really wanted arch-agitator and provocateur Raed Salah dead, he would be dead. But is not - that means that nobody targeted him, and DESPITE the fact that he was looking for trouble, he didn't get hurt. He can count himself lucky - this time.
23. i wish Israeli soldiers speedy recovery
John   (05.31.10)
wishing the Isreali soldiers a speedy and full recovery ,as for the islamist raed salah i don't care if he is alive or dead.
24. 21 Correction
Rosie   (05.31.10)
They entered Israeli waters on their way to Palestinian waters.
Max ,   ZIMBABWE   (05.31.10)
Keep him and trade him for Shalit
26. Stop the outrageous behavior of the “Israeli” Arabs.
Ron B. ,   Lod   (05.31.10)
While the police could end the atmosphere of lawlessness by enforcing the laws already on the books, the government can take positive steps to reverse the trends toward radicalization of Israeli Arab society. It can pass regulations barring anti-Zionist propaganda in public school curricula and sanctioning the immediate firing of public school teachers who teach students to hate Israel. It can suspend government funding of municipalities and local councils that do not enforce building codes. It can set up well-paid community police comprised of loyal citizens. The government can prosecute Arab politicians and leaders who treat with the enemy for treason. More about the Israeli Arabs at :
27. Raid
Al Redwood ,   Los Anngeles   (05.31.10)
Sallah or the other trouble makers, there comes a point when the game has to end and those who have other ideas must stand for the consequences. They'd never try this silly game taunting the Chinese in Tibet or the Burmese military. They know they cannot play this game in Russia or in Syria. But Israel is a fair game for the international groups as a staging ground for trouble making.
28. Government benefits
Mr. Obvious   (05.31.10)
They should do to them what they did to the chareidie when they try to stir the pot just to cause trouble then we will see how quickly they file back in line.
