On the Israeli ministry of foreign affairs' Flickr page, the pictures of the so-called weapons seized on the ships taking part in the Gaza Freedom Flotilla provide ample evidence of the deviousness of those darned anti-semitic terrorists. Be forewarned: the following pictures are not for the faint-hearted.

Image

Exhibit A: bulletproof vests
A slight snag though: two commentators, probably anti-semitic, point out that this photo really is from February 2006:
Blue says: In addition, IsraelMFA has to be careful with the date settings of their cameras! This picture looks like it was taken on Feb 7, 2006.. Wth?

An axe on board a ship? Good grief.

Another commentator, probably anti-semitic as well, notices that the picture dates from 2003:
Embra says:
Tiff data: Taken on January 1, 2003. Oops!
Horror knows no bounds- exhibit C: pepper spray.

The comments display the usual hateful fanaticism one can expect from islamo-fascists:

Again, be forewarned: this post isn't for the faint-hearted. Which leads us to exhibit D: a keffieh, kitchen knives, a Saudi flag, and and some CD-roms.

Do not faint just yet, because here is exhibit E: an electric saw - on a ship! Really, those terrorists really are beyond the pale.

Another anti-semitic commentator spews his hateful bile:

Exhibit E: Electric saw

Hi. Just to confirm that the EXIF metadata points to this photo being taken in 2006:

Please bear with me, because here comes exhibit F: night vision equipment, of course utterly useless on high seas.

Allow an antisemitic islamo-fascist to point out that picture's original date:

Finally, the smoking gun as it were: a butterfly knife of sorts, with a blade slightly shorter than a thumb

Butterfly knife, a weapon ideally suited for use against marine commandos armed with high-velocity firearms:

If all this hard evidence isn't enough to convince you of the legitimacy of the Israeli action, I rest my case.

PS: Hurry up visiting that Flickr page, as I fear that some photos might be withdrawn soon...

Flotilla detainees 'assaulted in custody'
03/06/2010 - 17:44:47

A leading Irish activist seized by Israeli authorities tonight revealed he was assaulted in custody while three others were severely beaten.

Dr Fintan Lane described how he feared for his life when soldiers hijacked their aid ship en route to Gaza and took those on board into captivity.

The 43-year-old historian maintained several passengers, including Libyan-Irishman Isam Bin Ali, remain unaccounted for.

“No one I’ve spoken to knows where these people are, it is very worrying,” he added.

Irishman Fiachra O Luain was injured when a row broke out with Israeli authorities in an area where about 400 detainees were being held at Ben Gurion.

Dr Lane, who is expected home in Dublin tomorrow, revealed Mr O Luain was beaten so badly he went to hospital for tests.

Al Mahdi Al Harati, a father-of-four originally from Libya, was also stretchered away after suffering a diabetes-related seizure on a flight to Turkey.


Dr Lane said Ken O’Keefe, an Irish-American passenger, was beaten by security officials at Tel Aviv airport before boarding.

“His injuries were so bad that he had to be hospitalised in Tel Aviv. The Israelis are claiming this delay in his repatriation is for technical reasons, yet another Israeli lie,” he added.

The group were among hundreds of people detained by authorities and released under massive international pressure following the deadly military-led action on the aid flotilla.

Nine people were killed in the attack.

Meanwhile, the Irish-owned ship, the MV Rachel Corrie, is continuing its slow journey to the Israeli-imposed exclusion zone. It is expected to hit the embargo area tomorrow night or Saturday morning.

Former UN diplomat Dennis Halliday, who is on board the aid ship, emphasised the aim was not provocation but getting aid cargo into Gaza.

“We are calling on the UN to inspect the cargo and escort us into Gaza, and to send a UN representative to sail on board before they enter the exclusion zone,” Mr Halliday said.

Gaza flotilla: Sarah Colborne's account

The director of campaigns and operations at the Palestine Solidarity Campaign was a passenger on the Mavi Marmara


On Sunday 30th we set off together. We had assembled all the boats in international waters. At 11pm that night, Israeli naval boats were detected on the radar and sighted and a decision was made to move further back into international waters, further from Israel.

We managed to get some broadcasts out that we were on a humanitarian mission, that the United Nations had called for ships to be sent with humanitarian aid to break the blockade on Gaza, that we were simply undertaking that goal. An emergency medical room was assembled and we were all told to put lifejackets on to prepare for any attack.

At 2am I went to sleep. At around 4.10am I woke up, went up to the deck where I could see outside and I saw boats, small dinghies but bristling with guns and Israeli military, speeding towards the ship. Helicopters then appeared. Gas and sound bombs were used and the reports from Sydney Morning Herald [a reporter from the newspaper was on Challenger, another boat in the flotilla] were that at 4.20am they reported gunshots, and the Challenger transmitted this information.

We then had the first passenger fatally injured. He was brought to the back of the open deck below. He was shot in the head. I saw him. He was obviously in a very bad way and he subsequently died. There were bullets flying all over the place when I was on the top deck and I took the decision to go downstairs.

It felt a bit surreal. I couldn't quite believe they were doing what they were doing. There was live ammunition flying around and I could hear the sounds of the bullets flying and the whirr of the helicopter blades as people were dropped down onto the roof. What I saw was guns being used by the Israelis on unarmed civilians.

We asked for the Israelis to stop the attacks. We were asking in English: "We are not resisting, please help the injured." Instead of helping the injured, the saloon remained surrounded by soldiers targeting individuals with laser sights. I could see the red of the laser sights sweeping over people's heads.

The captain announced live ammunition was being used, to stop resisting and to go downstairs. At 5.15am we started broadcasting over the Tannoy for help to evacuate the critically injured and for emergency medical assistance.

We made two attempts to get the message across in the written form as well as the many announcements over the Tannoy. We wrote a sign in Hebrew saying: "SOS! Need medical assistance. People are dying. Urgent."

It wasn't until 7am that the Israelis started allowing the first critically injured people off and they were delivered into Israeli hands. An attempt was made to send a medic with each of the critically injured people. Instead, the medics were cuffed and put on the deck.

I saw four dead bodies in the saloon laid out on the floor. All passengers were removed on to the deck. As we were moved out we were all cuffed with cable ties. All our phones and cameras were removed. We were made to sit or kneel in lines on the deck. The sun was quite strong and I was aware that people were starting to get dehydrated.

We were kidnapped, we were deprived of our liberty and our belongings. People were illegally held against their will, taken to Israel from international waters. In terms of treatment, in terms of our basic rights they were completely and totally violated.

We are hoping that the deaths, the horrific deaths, of the people will not be in vain. We are hoping that this will act as a wake-up call internationally, including our own government, that the siege on Gaza must end. It is illegal, inhumane and immoral. Israel has been used to acting with impunity. That situation has changed now.

We can't sit by and watch Israel violate international law every day. We want the British government to take action, ensure there are no future attacks on humanitarian aid convoys, to ensure there is a search carried out for those that remain missing, to ensure that those people who have been detained illegally will be released and most importantly to end the siege of Gaza.

Al-Jazeera cameraman confirms some IDF claims of attack
By JPOST.COM STAFF
06/04/2010 11:32




Andre Abu Khalil, a Lebanese cameraman for Al Jazeera TV, who was aboard the Mavi Marmara told Reuters some 20 Turkish men tried by force to prevent the boarding commandos from reaching the wheelhouse and commandeering the ship.

Using slingshots, metal pipes and wooden rods they initially succeeded in wounding and overpowering four Israeli soldiers and dragging them below decks, he told Reuters.

After a 10-minute standoff the Israelis opened fire, according to the cameraman.
