If the flotilla protesters wanted to kill some IDF men all they would have had to do is bring some guns. In the end, they would have been killed, but they could certainly have bagged some IDF men. As it happened, the IDF easily flies into a panic when they encounter resistance and they open fire. The IDF are badly trained, badly led, and are poorly disciplined. We saw them in action in the 2006 war when Hizbollah spanked them and send them home with their mission unaccomplished. Don't blame Israel's shortcomings on Israel's critics. Don't assume that every protester is a "terrorist". This kind of idiocy gives Israel a bad name.
