Mavi Marmara Timeline

The IDF released a detailed video timeline explaining what happened during last month's flotilla intercept -- with special detail on the Mavi Marmara. It's a powerful mix of computer animation, real footage, and info I wasn't aware of before.

Ruth Lapidoth, Professor Emeritus of International Law at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, writes on "The Legal Basis of Israel's Naval Blockade of Gaza":
"Stopping the flotilla heading for Gaza in international waters 100 kilometers from Israel was not illegal; in time of armed conflict, ships intending to breach the blockade may be searched even on the high seas. Israel is in full compliance with international law because it fulfilled all of the conditions for a lawful blockade."

All this publicity is too little too late.The Israeli govenment is too arrogant to realise the importance of public relations. All this info. should have been publicised by Bibi himself in an agressive campagne.

Is bringing these ships into Ashdod a good idea?

If I were a terrorist I would load the ships with tons of explosives and happily sail to Ashdod.

HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE THE EUROPEANS REALISE THAT GAZA AND LEBONAN ARE SATELLITES OF IRAN AND THAT IRAN DEARLY WANTS A FOOTHOLD IN THE MEDITERRANEAN TO BE ABLE TO THREATEN EUROPE WITH ITS MISSILES AS WELL AS ITS NUCLEAR PRODUCTS WHEN THESE ARE DEVELOPED. IF GAZA WILL NOT SIT WITH THE ISRAELIS AND THE P A TO TALK PEACE, ONE MUST CONCLUDE THAT PLANS ARE IN BEING TO OPEN UP THE PORT AT GAZA WITH A VIEW TO COLLECTING IRANIAN MISSILES WHICH ARE ALREADY BEING SENT TO THE HEZBOLLAH IN THE NORTH VIA SYRIA. HENCE THE BLOCKADE BY THE ISRAELIS.
THE POSITION OF THE EGYPTIANS IS SIMILAR TO THE ISRAELIS.
PERHAPS ONE DAY THE GAZAN'S ARAB BROTHERS WILL SUPPORT THE PALESTINIANS TO INVEST PART OF THEIR VAST WEALTH DERIVED FROM OIL TO BRING EMPLOYMENT TO GAZA AND ONCE THEY REALISE THAT WAR WILL ONLY BRING CONTINUED MISERY AND POVERTY, PEACE WILL EXIST BETWEEN THE JEWS AND ARABS. BUT THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN UNTIL ALL ARABS STOP THEIR CONSTANT SLAUGHTER OF MEMBERS OF THE DIFFERENT SECTS OF ISLAM AS IS OCCURRING IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN. IF THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN NATO WILL RETREAT AND LET THE ARABS CONTINUE TO SLAUGHTER EACH OTHER UNTIL REASON RETURNS AND THEY RETURN TO THEIR SENSES

peace will come only when Islamic religious leaders arange it. government of any area once held by Islamic forces by non-moslems (especially Chrisians or Jews) is forbidden and punishable by death to any member of those groups and by any Moslem who is able. If he/she dies while carrying out this sentance it is mayrterdom.

The detailed video should have been done in ENGLISH to begin with, if it is for the general public, not hebrew and english.
By now everyone forgot the whole thing, untill some comittee of investigation will go thru it again. Most media outlets will not publicize anything, unless its findings will be against Israel, in which case these video may or may not be of much help.

Some serious answers are missing from this video:

1. An IDF gun with missing bullets can mean many things. One of the activists Ken O Keefe had already said in a number of interviews that he had taken an IDF gun and thrown the magazine of bullets overboard. Thus it makes sense that an IDF gun was found without bullets. The question is: WERE SPENT BULLET SHELLS FOUND ON THE BOAT? Count them and then if its more than what was fired by Israeli soldiers then, This would infact prove that the activists shot the IDF weapons.

2. Where the non-IDF bullet cartriges found used or unused? Was this the bullet found in the chest of the IDF soldier? or was it shot from an IDF weapon?

3. How many IDF weapons were stolen? And how many were used?

I don't know why Israel doesnt comment or release videos in time. Every European country is at risk of being controlled by Sharia controled governments which is the holly aim of Islamic terrorits. We keep getting blamed for every single happenings in this world and Europe ( the 2nd ) in line is still sleeping.

We appreciate this footage and know full well the anti-semetism of the western mainline press. Am becoming uneasy of what will happen in this country. We support Bibi, knowing what a hard course he must follow trying to gain support from the current administration in US.
