Video Of People Being Shot Dead On Marvi Marmara

by | 3rd, June 2010

DO you have an opibnion on Israel’s storming of the Marvi Marmaram, a peace boat? The media keep playing images of an Israeli soldier being beaten and another being tossed over board. How the media loves it. Thanks to the IDF crew the images are a real turn on to anyone who likes their ultra violence wrapped up in a news package of highlights.

But what have we not seen? Well, we haven’t seen anyone being shot dead. But Media Backpsin has another angle:

Looks like Ambassador Michael Oren tips Israel’s hand. The IDF apparently has some damning evidence against the Free Gaza movement. He writes in this NY Times op-ed:

What the videos don’t show, however, are several curious aspects Israeli authorities are now investigating. First, about 100 of those detained from the boats were carrying immense sums in their pockets — nearly a million euros in total. Second, Israel discovered spent bullet cartridges on the Marvi Marmara that are of a caliber not used by the Israeli commandos, some of whom suffered gunshot wounds. Also found on the boat were propaganda clips showing passengers “injured” by Israeli forces; these videos, however, were filmed during daylight, hours before the nighttime operation occurred.

Large amounts of cash, bullet cartridges, and phony videos? Sounds like Pallywood on the high seas. I can’t wait for the army to release these findings.

The Jerusalem Post also notes other items found on the boat — in addition to the wheelchairs, toys, and clothes, etc. which Gazans already receive:

Other items that won’t be transferred to Gaza are the weapons and military equipment found aboard the Mavi Marmara. These include knives, clubs, slingshots, bulletproof vests, gas masks and night vision goggles.

Ah, the vital ingredients of any snuff movie dressed as a news report. Oh, and the tools of peace, naturally…

Hmmm…
