Meanwhile back at the ranch; the Israelis are preparing to demol;ish 22 Palestinian homes in Jerusalem to erect a tourist centre.

But that doesn't matter because the Israelis have God's favour, and the Palestinians are brown.

Israel has committed a war crime against not only the Gazan people but those who want to see them have basic human rights. There is no legitimate defense for Israel's violent action using commandos to attack an unarmed ship whose motivation was clear at the outset.

Once again, the American-Israeli-Public-Affairs-Committee have disseminated their
insane propaganda and are helping to make Israel the pariah of the world.

And Obama is going along with this criminal behavior.

With this type of apartheid and oppression against Gazans, how can Israel be a friend to the U.S.? Their policies are a denial of democracy and basic human rights.

Simple common sense really - troops who board a ship and kill a number of the passengers in international waters are pirates who are guilty of an atrocity - quite apart from the other atrocities they have committed which Keith and co. have carefully ducked (the use of chemical weapons on a civilian population; the bombing of hospitals and schools, the attempt to starve the Palestinians into submission.....) how much evidence do you want - it's all there. If none of these things happened - please feel free to say so.
I never thought I'd say it but Israel now bears all the hallmarks of a Nazi state - they have learned well from their former persecutors.

It is not that clear cut Jim.

Piracy?
This is what BBC says.

Israel breach international law?
This is disputed. A Turkish draft resolution circulated at the UN Security Council described the attack as a violation of international law. Turkish foreign minister Ahmet Davutoglu called the raid "tantamount to banditry and piracy" and "murder conducted by a state".
Israel's foreign ministry says that under international maritime law, when a maritime blockade is in effect, no boats can enter the blockaded area. It adds: "Any vessel that violates or attempts to violate a maritime blockade may be captured or even attacked under international law."
The question may hinge on whether the blockade itself is legal.

Did they start killing people Jim?
There is no evidence they did, and considerable evidence that they had no intention of using lethal force, but were themselves subject to attack.

Nine dead bodies on one side, and onthe other side? No dead, and only one with an injury considered serious (and that based on a statement by the side that did the killing).

They have ben killing those who got in the way of their land accession ambitions for over forty decades - little wonder you want to confine this to their latest act of piracy.
If you mean did they start killing people on the convoy - I'm pretty sure they'll find themselves 'not guilty' when they carry out their 'impartial' enquiry.

Don, you and Jim are childishly simplistic in your assessments.
We have no objective evidence of how the deaths occurred.

We do know that the first soldiers landed with paintball guns in their hands, and holstered pistols.

It could easily be, that faced with an overwhelming number of suicidal fanatics armed with clubs and chains, they used their pistols to save their lives.
That would all be entirely consistent with the evidence we do have.

One last time.

1. Israel's government admitted its real purpose in opposing a blockade.

The purpose given is not a legal reason for said blockade.

Ergo, the blockade is illegal, the boarding of the ships was an act of piracy, perpetrated outside of Israeli territorial limits, and the ensuing deaths were murder sanctioned by the Israeli government.

2. Israel expects that it will be allowed to carry out its own investigation, into the circumstances of its own criminal actions, and Uncle Sam supports it.

3. The people of the Gaza Strip continue to go short of food, building materials, and many other items which have no military value, and the west sits back and watches.

4. Two or three posters on this forum continue to support and approve this new form of slow genocide, whether because they have Israeli, or Jewish connections, or because they simply get a kick out of shit stirring, I do not know.

I do think that they should be damned ashamed to call themselves human beings.

We could argue that a country can not investigate its own armed forces.

Special rules for countries you do not approve of?

You and Don and Lox and Carol have decided that an atrocity must have occurred in the face of compelling evidence that it has not,
because Israel always and only commits atrocities.
Never mind that all other boardings have been carried out without loss off life.

That was an aside by the way, and not really pertinent to the overall question. I kept my (typing) mouth shut over the 'blood v's paint' debate as I had no way of knowing what the case was. However if a government body is to be trusted with an investigation it's best that they don't fake evidence. The fact that everyone knows they faked evidence, means they can't be trusted to undertake an impartial internal investigation. Any conclusions they come to will be tainted by the fact that the whole world KNOWS that they are bare-faced liars!

I've noticed that about you Keith.

Nothing is ever curious, which tends to agree with your current spin on the facts. On the other hand, anything which disagrees with your argument is very curious, and must be subjected to analysis on the basis of your highly specialised knowledge of everything from Military History to Middle East Politics.

And it is odd how, in your estimation, all Israeli government action is not to be queried or criticised.

I recall you had very similar one sided attitudes to the Northern Ireland situation, a short time ago.

You and others have shown a healthy scepticism of Israeli claims, but swallowed without question all those of the anti israel lobby like naive and gullible children.
All those things I listed to Crow Sister were accepted by people here, and we now know they were false.

There are deaths, so Israel must have committed an atrocity.
They had wounds to their backs, so must have been running away.

You do not need "specialised knowledge of military history" to know that is nonsense.
Just a moment's consideration of the circumstances without prejudice.

Israel may well be lying about the VHF exchange, but they have come up with a plausible story consistent with the evidence we have so far.

On this thread you have defended an act of outright piracy which ended in the killing of some of the passengers of the vessel they boarded. You have refused to acknowledge that the people responsible for this have usurped territory, destroyed homes, ghettoised occupants, used heavy weapons (including phosphorus bombs) on a civilian population in order to occupy the land that have taken over.
