    As a neutral country in Canada I have watched all sides of this from different perspectives. You need to get your facts straight. No machine guns were fired, I have seen several different tapes of the Israeli soldiers boarding the ships, the only difference is how the media explains what is happening. These ships were warned not to enter this area, alternate solutions were provided, the IHH refused. You can see first hand soldiers being beating with pipes as they repel onto the ship, you can see tracer fire being fired from the ship at the soldiers, you can see the soldiers not using any extreme method of force until their lives were in danger. It is very interesting to see the Biased European explanations on BBC seeing the same events. Actually maybe it is not that interesting considering that almost half of europe is now muslim. I wonder how long it will be until europe will be called the Islamic Republic of Europe?
