More evidence is emerging of the deceit of some of the flotilla activists and their media dupes who have been trying to paint the agitators who initiated the lethal violence on the Mavi Marmara as innocents praying during morning prayers - Clues undermine "Mavi Marmara" innocence.
There is evidence pointing to the fact that firearms were thrown overboard by passengers of the Mavi Marmara. Investigators found gun-sights and cartridge-magazines not fitting IDF weapons in a search of the ship, Israel Radio quoted IDF sources reporting Friday morning.Here's something you would never even guess about if you read your local daily propaganda broadsheet:
Some of those aboard the ship recorded messages saying they intended to become shahids (martyrs in the cause of war against the infidels).So it really was a suicide ship!
And just to prove that Al Jazeera cameramen can be more honest than your average purveyor of blarney, the report says that "Andre Abu Khalil, a Lebanese cameraman for Al-Jazeera TV, who was aboard the Mavi Marmara told Reuters some 20 Turkish men tried to prevent the boarding commandos from reaching the wheelhouse and commandeering the ship."
Using slingshots, metal pipes and bats they initially succeeded in wounding and overpowering four Israeli soldiers and dragging them below decks.
All they really wanted was some more Isreli soldiers to hold as hostages - just like their Hamas masters.
[If you think Mr. McGeough is going to reveal this in his eye witness accounts in the Age, then don't hold your breath!]
