This was not meant to be a “raid” on this ship. It was designed to be a peaceful boarding and Israel was NOT using lethal force. They were in the midst of boarding when the “peaceful protestors” attacked them with sharpened metal rods, long knives, heavy pipes, and bats. An Israeli soldier was stabbed critically in the stomach and the PROTESTORS fired shots before the order for the IDF to fire was given.
They wanted the ships in tact for inspection. There would have been no “attack” if they had not been forced to defend themselves.

That is why you are only seeing a scant few seconds of a video clip because if they show it all, it is clear who started this fight.

Shoulda coulda would. Not "meant" to be. Wahhh.

Do you realize how naive all that sounds? We live in the REAL world, not the "meant to be" world. We must deal with REALITY, not what it was "meant to be."
