    The subtitle:

    Al Jazeera: the flotilla changed its course in order to encounter IDF at daylight.

    Interesting:

    According to the live video from the ship, two have been killed, and 31 injured.

    Streaming video shows the Israeli soldiers shooting at civilians, and our last SPOT beacon said, “HELP, we are being contacted by the Israelis.”

    Why was there a live-streaming video and why do we see so little from it?

    Wouldn’t it be advantageous for the Free Gaza Terrorists to show as much as possible?

    I would especially be interested to this cheap action-movie story:

    Under darkness of night, Israeli commandoes dropped from a helicopter onto the Turkish passenger ship, Mavi Marmara, and began to shoot the moment their feet hit the deck. They fired directly into the crowd of civilians asleep.

    -Pics filmed a short while ago on one of the ships.
    Our military expert, Alon Ben David, it seems the peace activists are not seeking peace.
    -Yes, it wasn’t a non-violent confrontation as they promised; in fact it’s been over a while ago and we’re talking about reports of dead and wounded.
    The peace activists waited for IDF soldiers armed with a series of cold weapons; As the takeovers were taking place, in parallel over several boats, IDF soldiers came under attack. There were attempts to hurt them, to snatch their arms, there was also use of force.
    We cannot report now about those hurt on the Israeli side. But among the protesters there are no few hurt, we’re talking about tens of hurt, including a small number of dead.

    …during these confrontations. The takeover, as said, is over. The ships are heading towards Israel, I suppose that soon, evacuating the injured from the ships will start. But it was a not simple confrontation.
    Part of the broadcast from the boats was scrambled but there’s no doubt pictures of the confrontation have been taken by tens of cameras present on boards.

    - (studio, female) Yes, we also know that the activists did everything during the night to escape (Israeli) ships in order to arrive to the confrontation at daylight, and not to let it disappear during (night) obscurity.

    -Right, there was an effort on their part to prolong the duration of the sail towards Gaza so as to make the takeover happen on daylight but, as you see, the confrontations per se occurred, most of them started in the hours before dawn.

  5. E.G. says:

    … when fighters raided the boats in part from the air, in part from the sea,

    - Alon I’d like to refer to the images we’re now seeing, from CNN Turkey, notice we’re seeing the protestors who are confronting the soldiers with bats and cold weapons as you previously noted.

    - Yes, as I said, the protesters prepared themselves with lots of cold weapons, those calling themselves peace activists were geared with means to attack the soldiers, as seen on the images, they did not prepare to greet the soldiers in a non-violent way as had been stated in the beginning.
    The instructions to the commando fighters were to get over provocations but of course act upon being attacked and in face of danger. You can see the protesters armed with clubs and Gas-masks confronting the soldiers, and the outcome is not good. The outcome is tens of injured and also killed. Among the protestors and among IDF soldiers who, as you can see on these images, have suffered no little injuries.
    It’s a non-smooth takeover, it’s completed, and as said, the boats are on their way to Israel.

    - Alon, Thank you very much…
