    After seeing passengers shot at close range they tried to grab the weapons to stop the killing. Kenneth Nichols O'Keefe was later beaten by the Israelis.

    A US war veteran said yesterday he confronted Israeli commandos when they raided a Gaza-bound aid ship which he had boarded as a peace activist, Anatolia news agency reported.

    Kenneth Nichols O'Keefe, his face bruised and still stained with blood, flew to Istanbul from Tel Aviv, on his way to Ireland, the report said.
    "We overpowered three Israeli commandos. They looked at us... They thought we would kill them, but we let them go," O'Keefe said, adding he took the weapon of one of the soldiers and emptied it, according to Anatolia.

    The ex-marine said he saw five people being killed on board the Mavi Marmara.

    So? Since when was it a bright thing to get between an Israeli Commando and their target? If those "former Marine" peaceniks took any weapons it was because the Israeli's gave them up.

    Just the usual faux outrage and sensationlist crap from the anti Jewish, pro murdering thug terrorist crowd.:cuckoo:

    The story coming from the flotilla side always seems to be changing. Every time new video or pictures come out the flotilla media handlers have to move the goal posts on what thier version states happened. From no violence, to violence in self defense, from no weapons to no "real weapons" etc.

    Only the Israeli goverment's position has maintained the same points since the begininng. That one ship tried to prevent thier implementation of takeover of a vessel as per thier stated blockade of Gaza.

    It also strikes me that the flotilla people have nothing to lose from lying. even when video shown contradicts thier inital accounts no one holds them to task on it.

    REAL easy to see the difference between the side that uses terrorism against noncombatants as a strategy to wiping an established religion, race and nation from the face of the Earth, and the legitimate military of a nation chasing those criminals down.

    Hard to argue with that...

    ...not that I think you are right, but if you cannot imagine anything but white or black... it is hard to discribe the concept of shades and colours...

    Damn shame!
