Mr. asS, first you should notice that my basic argument for "fishiness" of the conclusion is the CONTRADICTION between the earlier and later navy reasoning. As far as your questions, they are trivial and easy to answer. Israel could have disabled the ship, having nearby a large ship to bring over the passengers if they so desired (which I assume they would have refused). Upon refusal, Israel could have notified the US Sixth Fleet, Turkey, and all other ships in the area, that they were invited to upload the Turks. The navy and larger Israeli ship would have been available in case something unusual happened to change the passengers' minds. As to your comment today, you may kill the passengers if you abandon them, but this is not what I suggested (and for this very reason). You see how easy it is if you only try to think a little? No need to denigrate yourself, just find another name and start thinking.
