More Trouble from the Middle east

Israeli commandos have stormed an international aid convoy bound for Gaza leaving up to 19 dead and sparking mass protests across the world.

Britain joined other countries in denouncing the attack as "deplorable" with Palestinian leaders describing the bloodshed as a "massacre".

The deadly dawn raid on a Turkish ship sparked a mass protest in Istanbul with 10,000 people marching through the street, burning Israeli flags.

Commandos, dressed in black and armed with rifles, dropped down ropes from helicopters onto the Mavi Marmara boat, heading a flotilla of six.

Israeli officials said the soldiers opened fire after activists attacked them with iron bars, axes and knives.


The pictures make the operation look cack-handed from the start. Commandos rappel down ropes straight into a crowd of activists wielding bars. They appear overwhelmed at first and in insufficient numbers, unable to seize control.

They added that activists had tried to "lynch" one of the commandos and blamed the violence on passengers.

But a reporter on the boat - en route from Cyprus - said the commandos had begun firing before landing on the vessel.

And an Al-Jazeera correspondent said the Israeli soldiers continued shooting even though a white flag of surrender had been raised.

Twenty eight Britons and a number of Greeks, Swedish and Irish were aboard the flotilla which was 80 miles off Gaza.



Demonstrators in Istanbul set fire to Israeli flags after the bloodshed


Foreign Secretary William Hague said: "‪‪I deplore the loss of life during the interception of the Gaza flotilla.

"We are asking for more information and urgent access to any UK nationals involved.‪"

There were unconfirmed reports that senior Arab Israeli Islamist leader Raed Salah had been badly hurt in the clashes.

The raid was widely condemned by the international community, with France, Sweden, Greece, Ireland, Germany, Denmark, Italy and Turkey among countries denouncing Israel

forking Helll, how much goodwill want Israel to lose (they've lost most of mine quite a long time ago)

they attacked the ships in international waters and then after they attack they claim they were attacked first, Forking hell it's a joke... you mean when gunwielding soldiers attack you in international waters you are not allowed to defend yourselves... heard there were 19 deaths already

To quote Tommy Tiernan no matter where in the world theres some sort of war theres bound to be some irish involved.

More to the point the existance of the isreali state is just wrong, its nothing but a puppet state to help keep western interests kept in the middle east, nothing more.

And the fact the a "country"(although they dont deserve this title imo) was suppost to be a holy land for the jews after years of persecution all they have done in the last 60 years is invade neighbouring contries and inflict the same acts that they had been subjected to in the past.

Call me bad but i honostly no longer care if i hear about Isrealis being attacked in the gaza strip because they bring it on themselves

It's apartheid by any other name.

I don't see why Israel should get any special treatment and imo they are nothing less than fascists. There is a calculated systematic eradication of a whole race of people going on in Palestine. This ship was carrying cement and building material. Why put a ban on that? It can only be to stop progress and create a ghetto. Most of Israel's military actiions result in a dispoportionate amount of children being killed. Their blockade on Gaza stops baby incubators, a lot of medicine for children, and school books, paper and writing materials. If you want to kill a race, destroy it's next generation and in case you can't manage that deny them education so they remain ignorant and unable to progress.

BTW Eco, avoid this turning into an attack on any faith. That is an unfair generalisation of all jews and they have a diverse opinion on the situation as anyone else. I have many middle east jewish friends who hold a different point of view to Israel. It's political religion that I have a problem with and the way I see Israel and ppl like Benjamin Netanyahou is as much an extremist as Osama Bin Laden, they just wears a suit and speak the right language.

Never going to happen, Irsreal is pretty much a puppet state to keep the need of countires like america in tact in the middle east.

Keep in mind a good portion of the rich and powerful in America are Jews so are they going to stand by while Isreal is invaded.

The Isrealis are as bad as the nazis fact, target innocent woman and children yet get away with it, things need to change
