    Huwaida Arraf (chairwoman of the Freedom Flotilla) attended the weekly protest against The Wall on June 4 in Bil'in. The villagers marched in a special tribute to the activists, complete with a miniature Mavi Marmara. You can see Huwaida walking alongside the ship in the first part of the video - she's wearing a black T-shirt.

    It's over quickly. Soldiers enter at :50 seconds. After using tear gas on the crowd, they go after the mock "ship" at 1:35 and try to tear it up. But they notice the photographers still getting it all on video, so they go after them.

    Don't miss the guy in the wheelchair with a gas mask cruising through the soldiers at 2:05

    Interesting edit of the video, I have one question. What happened before the IDF fired the tear gas?

    According to the IDF press release, the kids in the boat suddenly activated the secret gun turrets and opened fire on the soldiers, while the guy in the wheelchair fired laser guided Qassam rockets from the armrests.

    And I thought they just attacked them with the clubs they had, thanks for letting me know I was wrong.

    Foreign police break up a crowd. Would you accept that in your country?

    I wouldn't elect terrorists to represent my interests, but that's just me. So, I don't see any parallel.
