Let's take a look at the Post's spin on things:
GAZA - At least 10 pro-Palestinian activists were killed and dozens were wounded aboard an aid flotilla bound for the Gaza Strip when Israeli naval commandos seized control of the boats early Monday, the Israeli army said.
So far so good. Straight-up reporting.
Israel had warned the organizers of the flotilla -- transporting items such as concrete to help Gaza rebuild after last year's war with Israel -- that they would not be allowed to sail directly through the blockaded region.
Okay. Here we go. They were transporting items such as "concrete to help them rebuild after last year's war with Israel." The reader here would be left with the idea that the humanitarians were somehow rebuilding Gaza's war machine after their war with Israel. That, however, is not quite how it went down. The Israelis have been attempting to ethnically cleanse Gaza for some time. It is true that the Gazans were firing rockets at the Israelis. But that wasn't until Israel had completely blockaded Gaza. And a blockade is, under international law, considered an act of war. And Jews have zero claim to Palestine whatsoever. I seem to recall Jews' own law that Israel is not to be formed by sword prior to the Messianic Redemption. (And that sure ain't now.)
The activists refused to dock in Israel and have relief supplies unloaded and inspected there, saying they did not trust that Israel would allow the contents to be trucked to the Gaza Strip.
Very astute. The Israelis would have seized all humanitarian aid.
Overnight, Israeli naval personnel dropped from helicopters on to the largest passenger ship from Turkey, which had several hundred people aboard. Short video clips broadcast on various television stations showed demonstrators clubbing the navy personnel with metal bars and showed at least one soldier firing.
To listen to the Post tell it, the humanitarians just magically started clubbing the navy personnel. Well, Israel stormed vessels in international waters. The occupants of those vessels had every right to club or shoot or otherwise defend themselves from what are essentially pirates.
The Israeli army said demonstrators attacked the navy personnel with knives and live fire and seized at least one of the soldier's weapons.
"This IDF naval operation was carried out under orders from the political leadership to halt the flotilla from reaching the Gaza Strip and breaching the naval blockade," the Israeli army said in its statement.
"We strongly condemn this inhumane act of Israel. This intervention which took place in open seas and which was a clear violation of international law may lead to irreparable damage to relations, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
That nation is a sickness from start to finish. And this is not going to go well for them. Decent humanity has had just about enough of that nation of pigs.
