Let us hear evidence from Turkey. This was clearly a case in which Israel wanted to send a strong signal. They prepared a military action against a civilian aid ship that had two goals: 1. break the embargo, which was a plitical motive and 2. deliver much needed aid to a population living under seige. Their ship was attacked in international waters and the invading military force was met with resistance. Israel knew this and had prepared for an attack to send a clear meassage that any further attempts to break the embargo would be dealt with by military violence. They used Turkey, a Muslim nation, as an example so they could justify their attack as a defensive action against terrorists. This was to be used for propaganda purposes. The example had been set. Any violaters of our seige will be attacked and Turkey will serve as the example. Why? Because they are Muslims, so they can be made out to be terrorists. When the crew resisted with what they had on any ship, they were termed not resisters but terrorists and Israel thought it had achieved its goal. But it has failed and more ships will be coming throwing the focus on conditions in Gaza and the inhumanity of the seige and Israel, not defesive behaviour but their brutality.
