Israeli Defense Force (IDF) spin doctors and bloggers,are doing their best to downplay the attack on the "Freedom Flotilla" ship Mavi Marmara in International Waters by IDF Naval Forces.
They have been posting video of them offering to redirect the ship toward Ashdod
,where they would be able to unload their aid supplies, which would then be transferred over land after undergoing security inspections.
Regardless if this is correct or staged,
the IDF Naval Forces played directly into the hands of the activists.
The IDF is claiming that the activists had clearly prepared their weapons in
advance for this specific purpose.
Clubs, slingshots, knives and fireworks versus heavily armed Sayeret (Israeli
Special Forces) commandos is hard to swallow.
They are claiming that one of the weapons used was grabbed from an IDF soldier,
this is clearly a fabrication after reviewing the video footage.
This was clearly a scheme devised to garner support for the Palestinian cause,and embarrass Israel which the IDF fell for hook, line and sinker.
A cheer for the activist who planned this operation and a jeer to the trigger happy Sayeret
commandos who folded under pressure,and were woefully unprepared.
