The ensuing violence that occurred after Israel blocked a six-boat flotilla from entering the Gaza Strip has caused predictable bedwetting amongst the blame-the-Jews-first crowd. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas claims that the Israeli government committed a "massacre." The Free Gaza Movement organization says Israeli soldiers "dropped from the helicopters" and began shooting "the moment their feet hit the deck." Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu called the incident a murder "murder committed by a state" and even likened it to September 11.
And so goes the narrative that the Israeli Defense Forces brutalized a defenseless vessel consisting of peaceful passengers who were en route to distribute care packages.
Fair enough. Now we want to hear from you.
