Please refrain from the name calling, right in the title. It is inaccurate as far as anyone that post on this forum is concerned. We may have differences of opinion, but reducing them to name calling and slurs is not effective, mature or Christ like.

Gaza flotilla activists were shot in head at close range
June 4, 2010, The Guardian (One of the UK's leading newspapers)
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/ju ... sy-results

Israel was tonight under pressure to allow an independent inquiry into its assault on the Gaza aid flotilla after autopsy results on the bodies of those killed, obtained by the Guardian, revealed they were peppered with 9mm bullets, many fired at close range. Nine Turkish men on board the Mavi Marmara were shot a total of 30 times and five were killed by gunshot wounds to the head, according to the vice-chairman of the Turkish council of forensic medicine, [Yalcin Buyuk]. The results revealed that a 60-year-old man, Ibrahim Bilgen, was shot four times in the temple, chest, hip and back. A 19-year-old, named as Fulkan Dogan, who also has US citizenship, was shot five times from less that 45cm, in the face, in the back of the head, twice in the leg and once in the back. Two other men were shot four times, and five of the victims were shot either in the back of the head or in the back. The new information about the manner and intensity of the killings undermines Israel's insistence that its soldiers opened fire only in self defence and in response to attacks by the activists. "Given the very disturbing evidence which contradicts the line from the Israeli media and suggests that Israelis have been very selective in the way they have addressed this, there is now an overwhelming need for an international inquiry," said Andrew Slaughter MP, a member of the all party group on Britain and Palestine.

During a war it is quite normal to sink ships that want to run a blockade. Gaza has been shooting rockets into Israel for a long time, and therefore is an enemy of Israel. All friends of enemies are also enemies.

The ships were in international waters, the people on board were civilians. The ships had been in other docks and had been inspected.

You would have been okay with them torpedoing these boats?

Gaza people have sent rockets and mortars into Israel for a long time, and that is WAR! During wars it is quite legal to sink all and any ships anywhere that want to run a blockade, including those in international waters. Compare with the other wars of history. A friend of an enemy is an enemy!

It's always understood that the Red Cross is a neutral organization which is permitted to come in with aid.

It's also understood that those who occupy a territory are responsible for the welfare of the people they occupy. No systematic genocide is permitted by International law.

In other words, a country can't occupy another country and be at war with it at the same time.
