one video is worth a thousand pictures

It is my understanding that 1) It took many hours for these videos to be released after the incident. 2) The live video feed, onboard the boat, was cut/scrambled after the first two were killed and the white flag was raised. 3) When the journalists and activists, that were aboard, are released we might know more.

So far, all those released have been countering Israel's self-defense theory, stating that the Israelis initiated the violence. Shots fired, gas canisters and stun grenades were apparently fired at the ships prior to any of the commandos hitting the decks of the ships.

Its time for the Israeli leadership to wake up and smell the manure they're sitting in. First they must get a grip and realise that there are international laws they must observe, Secondly they should apologize for the IDF's clumsy attempts to rewrite history by fabricating the idea that somehow they were attacked first - which is obviously utter nonsense. The authorities behind this unprovoked act of aggression must be brought to justice. As Israel is not party to the International Criminal Court, they have created a situation in which their nationals can escape prosecution for such atrocities. It is time for The UN to step in and impose serious sanctions against all arms trade to Israel. Meanwhile The UN should redouble its efforts to force Israel to recognize Palestinian rights, including the right of return. The world community should unite and not neglect to use this opportunity to put an end to the occupation and the decades of resulting violence that have marked the region for so long.
