Comments: Shock: Muslim Claims Israel Faked Weapons Recovered During Blockade Runner Raid

Why bother to worry about videos, independent photos, captured materials, and dozens of captured fighters (complete with body armor, gas masks, and weapons)? It isn't as if the muslims will believe any of that. The only proof they need resides inside of their heads.

As for who are our friends--who exactly was cheering on 9/11? Not Israelis.

"The only proof they need resides inside of their heads."

They are probably most concerned with what, or rather who, now resides in the ground. Including this American.

The family of the Turkish boy who left America when he was 2 years old and resided in Turkey, thereafter, said, "we were not sorry to hear that he fell like a martyr."

I respect the family wishes, and am not sorry he fell either.

Clearly the wrong kind of American, a distinction with a long and shameful history.

A citizen is free to attack any foreign military. We are not responsible for their poor judgment or adherence to a barbarous religious sect. That he was killed attacking IDF fighters enforcing a reasonable blockade deserves no more sympathy than Rachel Corrie helping to protect tunnels used for smuggling arms for aggression.

Good riddance.

Thus proving my point. Thank you for pointing out that the apologists and propagandists for the Arabs do not care what this young fighter had done--just that he was killed. He could have been killing Israeli women and children in a shopping mall--something that the Gazans really enjoy doing--and the useful idiots would still just say that the IDF was not justified in killing him.
