1. PMS... bigtime!!!
Erastus CoupeDeVille ,   Ong's Hat, NJ USA   (06.02.10)
2. Conditions So Bad In Turkey . . .
emanon ,   USA   (06.02.10)
Maybe their lives were so bad in Turkey, they wanted to stay in Israel.
3. Just send the across the border to Gaza
Joe ,   USA   (06.02.10)
where they want to be, and let them figure out how to get home from there.
4. stay classy
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (06.02.10)
that's what we've come to expect from these types.
5. Behaviour indicative of type of upbringing
Noel ,   Cork, Ireland   (06.02.10)
Ignore the rantings of the activists -true colors come out when under pressure. Some people have a deep need to be recognised by society - sadly those lacking a good social upbringing have difficulty in achieving this need. Some of them, in desperation, turn to these "humanitatrian" organisations in the hope of gaining publicity - good personal traits are not required to qualify as the canon foddder. Hence the poor manners and actions displayed by these activists.
6. These are no activists!
AD ,   Toronto, Canada   (06.02.10)
They are barbaric hulligans who's inner sole is consumed with evil, vile hatred.
Nice try! The officer said he was especially hurt by the behavior because Oz, the Prison Service, and the police had treated the flotilla activists so kindly since their arrival. "We gave them excellent, considerate, and respectful service. We took care of all of their needs," he said.
8. Bravo!! Courageous activists!
Paco ,   Canada   (06.02.10)
The world has waken up to the terror spread by the state of Israel! Those women should be awarded and applaused on there return to their country!
9. Activists violent? There's a surprise.
William ,   Israel   (06.02.10)
Wait, MK Zaoubi and A-Sana will claim that the activists were upset because they saw an Israeli flag...a clear provocation to them. From the beginning, this flotilla was all about racist violence.

colin   (06.02.10)
Why is Israel treating the injured from the boats. Put the filthy swine on the turkish planes. Who needs these rubbish soiling holy Israeli ground?? Have the groveling politicians gone completely mad or is the cowardice showing its face??

18. Amazing how "rights activists" turn into animals
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (06.02.10)
Feed any "rights activist" a little taste of Israel and they show their true colors. They are not into "human rights" (otherwise they'd be protesting against Hamas). They're not into "humanitarian aid" (otherwise they'd send aid via the UN, which transports it after inspecting it for hidden weapons and transports it into Gaza). They're not into "minority rights" (otherwise they'd protest against Hamas which support violence against Christians, Gays and others). They're not "pro-Palestinian", since the major troubles facing the Palestinian people are the internal Fatah-Hamas civil war and the criminal corruption of both sides. So who are these women? They support a racist, misogynist, human rights trashing Palestinian state that would espouse radical Islam and wage war against Israel. They don't say openly they support genocide against Israel, but it is very clear that they are supporting it with their actions. As my gramma used to say: "Feh!" I agree. They should have been taken to the Gaza border and handed over to Hamas.
19. :: Terror attack at Ben Gurion International Airport!
Matty Groves ,   Fairport   (06.02.10)
Today international terrorists, who were kidnapped in international waters and forced to travel to Israel where they were illegally arrested and detained, committed a despicable act of terror by ‘shouting, slapping and scratching’ Israeli officials. Terrified airport personal reported that one of the jihadist engaged in ‘name-calling and cursing’. One member of airport staff was rushed to hospital to receive emergency treatment for a suspected scratch to his left hand. At a news conference Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman announced that Israel would not stand idly by while international terrorists trained by al-Qaeda said ‘bad things about Israel’. “Israel reserves the right to defend itself and its citizens against such acts of global terrorism” he stated adding “It is vital that there is a full UN investigation to determine exactly how this name-calling and scratching took place”. Israeli anti-terror units are on a heighten state of alert across Israel tonight in case there is a case of ‘spitting’.
20. Hope you can get some of this on film...
Rafi ,   US   (06.02.10)
... that's what 95% of this enitre flotilla episode is about: PR & propaganda. Up till now, Israel has played right into their hands... Get some of their obnoxious behavior on film and see how far that gets them. There are still a lot of undecided viewers out there who would benefit from seeing how these "pious saints" are really behaving...
21. Ah, yes! Peaceful humanitarians ...
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (06.02.10)
Please tell me that such disgusting behavior has been captured on film. These "humanitarians" must descend from Belsen camp guards.
22. i was at the airport really is too bad the sh
JL ,   israel   (06.02.10)
23. to #4
Georges   (06.02.10)
24. attack immigration officers?, they didn't shoot back?
observer   (06.02.10)
25. illegal migrants?
observer   (06.02.10)
because they were harassed to sign notes they entered Israel land on their own will, and never been kidnapped from international waters.
26. I hate that scum.
Sobieski ,   Germany   (06.02.10)
Where did violence free and honourable behaviour go?
27. Nothing a good foot in the ass wouldn't brought to a halt
Cameron ,   USA   (06.02.10)
28. Joe @ 3, probably the best idea I've heard in last few days.
leo ,   usa   (06.02.10)
29. Gaza Freedom Flotilla
Marred Graves ,   San Rafael, USA   (06.02.10)
It is well-known that kidnappers try to get their hostages to like them, after the violence of seizing them is over, by doing nice things for them. This will never work for the Rogue State of Isunreal because its captives were taken illegally from international waters. A Criminal Syndicate usually operates many legitimate businesses; it is still a Criminal Syndicate. As long as major news outlets, their editors and columnists and readers want feel-good-aren't-we-all-lovable stories, Israel will continue to decline in its increasingly rapid decline into total moral degeneration with the lies its authorities tell its trusting citizens. Grow up, please, you editors and readers, and demand your leaders stop this illegal and corrupting occupation and "hafrada," which means in English "separation," and in Afrikaaner, "apartheid." Wake up, Israel, Americans shouldn't have to wake up before you and stop your foolish imitation of our own government's criminality abroad.
30. We are too nice to that scum!
Rasjie ,   Jerusalem Israel   (06.02.10)
Let them rot in jail! Or send them to live in Gaza.
