Video of humanitarian activists on peace vessel getting ready to ambush Israeli soldiers
See this video tape, taken from a security camera aboard the Mavi Marmara, the “peace” boat which was attempting to run the Israeli blockade. As explained in the caption accompanying the video,
The passengers of the Gaza flotilla are seen here preparing for confrontation with the IDF soldiers. The rioters put on gas masks and arm themselves with rods, slingshots, broken bottles, metal objects, and water hoses. As the IDF soldiers approach the ship the rioters immediately attack the forces by hurling these objects at them.Also, observe how burly the “peace activists” are, how military-looking their uniform-like outfits and their posture and movements. These are soldiers preparing for battle—a reality the IDF was entirely unprepared for. The Israeli authorities had bought into the hype that the people on the boats were peaceful, though obnoxious, left-wing protesters.
The rioters put on gas masks and arm themselves with rods, slingshots, broken bottles, metal objects, and water hoses.That list of improvised, urban guerrilla-type weapons reminds me of a similar list, in Bob Dylan’s 1983 song, “Jokerman”:
Nightsticks, water cannon,“False hearted judges / Dying in the webs that they spin.”
That’s the entire politically correct and anti-Israel world, both of the left and of the paleocon “right,” shrilly condemning Israel as a criminal state and enemy of humanity, and not realizing that by doing so they have revealed themselves as simply the allies of Muslim jihadists and permanently destroyed their own credibility.

This video needs as much publicity as possible.
