Well according to the law hey are but i guess because rabid right wingers like you who are foaming at the mouth say so, then hell it simply must be true. They dont defend israel by killing unarmed civilians on a boat who are of no threat to them or the state. And before you scream about "iron rods" being used to attack them remember that the report your country is so desperately trying to block being published says that most of those killed on the marmara were killed in a manner consistant with execution. No in a firefight where soldiers were trying to defend themselves but when the people were tied up and of no threat they were executed. But i suppose you will try and defend that behaviour too. Even tho its the same as the islamists do to those who dare to oppose them too.
