    Israeli soldiers landed on board expecting no resistance, they are violently and brutally captured by more in numbers activists and disarmed, one even thrown off the boat. in order to free the one captured, army sent other armed soldiers, considering activists as terrorists threatening the lifes of Israeli soldiers, soldiers opened fire on any resistance, however, appears now that activisits clearly had no intention to kill the wounded soldiers, weapons unloaded, even soldiers taken care of by certain activisits. i would think, responsability goes to the ministers who considered all the passengers of the boat "terrorists" threatening Israel citizens. actions taken mean that, no innocent considered among all the passengers. Israeli gov reaction to the expected and mediatized provocation was a real mistake. an external investigation would certainly be against Israel national interest . decision takers for this reaction and operation should by themselves step down and take responsability so no investigation required.
