I found the soldiers drenched under the water quite hilarious. thumbs up whose ever idea that was. as for iron bars and baton, if you are going to raid a ship at midnight, thats the least you can expect. Any other ship would have been armed, and the IDF would have thought twice before jumping aboard. but because the were unarmed civilians, that is the least they had to make do with!!! not just that, people on he other ships who didnt even reisist were beaen and stunned with tasers. they were also attacked by tear gas, handcuffed and hooded. now if that was the treatment of those who didnt resist, its no surprise that people on the first boat tried to resist!!
