Ok guys, you say the IDF botched it. What's your ideal scenario then? I'm not talking about not taking the ship, since it could have contained weapons. Indeed, it is legal to board a ship to check it in international waters (otherwise, drug dealers would leave in boats). Now that the boat wouldn't stop, IDF had to raid it. Now they're attacked by wanna-be shahids. What's next? Get stabbed and stay calm? They shot the legs but that wouldn't dissuade the others. Only bodies did... Sorry for these Turks.
