Your kidding right? The flotilla styled itself and told the world that it was peopled with "peaceful activists". What you expect, reasonably, with peaceful activists is either no resistance or passive resistance, not bars, knives and slingshots. The loud explosion followed an offer conveyed to ship organizers to deliver the humanitarian aid and followed a warning to turn around and another offer to deliver the aid. The point you make is completely misleading and in fact quite the opposite is true. The people on board had every reason to think that they would be intercepted by Israeli troops and that is what happened. That the troops expected a peaceful encounter is reflected by the toys that they boarded with.
