Comments: Who Paid the Turkish Terrorists on the Mavi Marmara?
The soldier in question killed six of the nine Turkish terrorists killed in the attempted blockade running with his handgun at point-blank range.

A pity the IDF didn't start out that way instead of end up that way.

As for the firearms used by the attacking Turks, it appears that the plan always was to have a few killed and hide the evidence in the sea. Otherwise even a few weapons would be recovered.

Turkey smells the stink of weakness coming off this administration like a cloud.

I'll believe the Israeli account when they release all of the camera and unedited video footage they confiscated from these activists. Until they do that none of us can really have a clue what happened, maybe not even then.

The Turks may be a member of NATO but they haven't been an American friend or ally since they refused to allow USA use of Incerlik Air Base in Adana Turkey to support our troops going into Iraq.

The IslamoNazis have taken over in Turkey and the military can no longer enforce a secular government. The Turkish military is going to have to once again intervene in Turkish politics or Turkey will turn totally into an IslamoFascist/Nazi Thugocracy like Iran.

I hope the Israelis destroy any Turkish Navy vessels that attempt to break the legal Israel blockage of the Gaza Strip.

Erdogan seems to want to re-establish Khalifate of the Ottoman Empire. Ahmenijad wants to re-establish the Persian Empire. They will have alot of competition as Cairo, Damascus, Bagdad and Mecca have all been the seats of Moslem power in the Middle East at one time or another...

"I'll believe the Israeli account..."

Never. Because if it gives you more reason to hate Jews, you'll reject the color of the sky and the warmth of the sun.
