"Peace Activists" = Martyrs

So let's get this straight: the "peace activists" were armed, according to videos made by both Israeli and Turkish cameramen, with knives, clubs, iron pipes, handguns (seized with empty magazines,indicating they were fired), Molotov cocktails and stun grenades.

According to al-Jazeera, the ships' complements were full of enthusiasts for martyrdom, happily chanting a traditional anti-Jewish rant reminding Jews of an earlier genocide happily committed by Arabs on the Arabian peninsula. One report on British news stated that one ship had a painted sign posted, "Hitler was a blessing." These were NOT people involved in a peaceful mission. These were people looking for a confrontation, and armed themselves in preparation for it.

I do agree with the Labor MP who is grabbing her 15 minutes of fame by dissing the commando action -- we shouldn't have used commandos.

Next time, order them to leave--and if they persist, just sink them rather than risk our kids' lives.
