Don't Trust the Media!

When it comes to what is going on with Israel right now, everything you read or watch will have some sort of bias. Here is the truth. The flotilla consisted of "peace activists." I use quotes because if one is a peace activist, they would not ATTACK SOLDIERS. They were funded by a Turkish group with ties to Al-Qaeda.

Demonstrators Use Violence Against Israeli Navy Soldiers Attempting to Board Ship:

In the above video, Israeli Navy Commander Vice Admiral Eliezer Marom briefs the forces that were set to intercept the Gaza Flotilla.
Vice Admiral Marom, head of the Israeli Navy, instructs the troops intercepting the Gaza flotilla. He specifies how the troops must conduct themselves during their mission and how they are not to be dragged into provocations with the passengers of the ship. He states that humanitarian aid is imported into Gaza on a daily basis. In addition, the shipment of goods that the flotilla is attempting to deliver will be imported to Gaza through Israeli crossings following a security inspection.
Honest Reporting sent out a special alert earlier today. Here is information of the group behind the flotilla:
The organizations and passengers behind the Gaza flotilla have been variously described as "peace activists" and "humanitarian organizations". This could not be further from the truth. The primary objective of this flotilla was not to deliver aid packages to Gaza but to spread anti-Israel propaganda in cooperation with Gaza's Hamas rulers

Playing a central role in the flotilla is the Turkish IHH organization, which besides its legitimate philanthropic activities is also, according to the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center, a supporter of radical Islamic networks, including Hamas, and at least in the past, even global jihad elements.

See here and here for detailed information on the IHH.
Here are the "peaceful activists" chanting threats to the Jews.

It was no case of humanitarian efforts:
In fact, Israel offered to transfer the supplies on the flotilla to Gaza from Ashdod port through official channels, an offer that was rejected in favor of confrontation on the part of the anti-Israel activists. As flotilla organizer Greta Berlin stated: "this mission is not about delivering humanitarian supplies, it's about breaking Israel's siege."
