    Attacking a civilian ship carrying aid (Any weapons were found in the cargo?) in international waters,killing 9 citizens of a friendly country (at least until recently) by shooting most of them in the head/back at short range is murder and an act of war. What is worst is that not only there is no apology but actually the dead were called terorists! They lost their lives for not going down on their knees when the mighty IDF soldiers came down from the choppers in the middle of the night and trying to defend themselves with sling shots, iron bars etc. Result: 9 dead 30 plus wounded. I truely believe Turkey's anticipated response is too light. The commenders were watching the welcoming preparations on the upper deck via unmanned aircraft in real time, yet they still sent the soldiers down anyway, The ship could have been stopped in many other ways without boarding, but that was not enough. The activists had to be taught a lesson. If IDF released the captured videos and photos the truth would come out. We do know that although the "terrorists" captured at least 3 soldiers, none of them were killed, while it was a free shooting range upstairs, one soldiers may even get a medal for killing 6 of the 9. Bibi,an apology and compensation to the families of the dead is the least you should be doing before it is too late.
