Details emerge of bloodshed aboard Gaza-bound ship - Yahoo! News No one saw anything, no one knows anything, BUT they were justified in attacking the Israeli commandos. Those people are lucky a hell of lot more were not killed. The helicopters most likely were armed with Machine guns. If as the protesters claim the Israelis opened fire on them ( not likely) there would be evidence of that and none of them claim any one was hurt prior to the Israelis being forced to defend themselves. Further no violence occurred on any of the other ships. NOT ANY. Once again the dead are the result of the stupidity and actions of the supposedly peaceful Protesters. ARMED men waiting to ambush the commandos as they landed.
