Filmed: Israeli navy machine gunning unarmed Palestinian fishing boats

Sunday Herald:

A SCOTTISH human rights activist has filmed the Israeli navy firing machine guns at unarmed Palestinian fishing boats in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of the Gaza Strip.

The footage, taken on September 6 by Andrew Muncie, who is from the Highlands, shows an Israeli gunboat engaging fishing boats while international observers hold their arms in the air and scream for them to stop firing.

No-one was injured in the incident, but Palestinian fishermen claim 14 colleagues have been murdered at sea by the Israeli navy since the onset of an economic blockade imposed after Hamas took control of the Gaza Strip in June 2007. Israel says patrolling these waters is a vital security measure to stop weapons being smuggled into Gaza.

Muncie, 34, of Dalbreagha, Spean Bridge, is working with the Free Gaza movement and arrived in Gaza last month as part of a group of 40 activists who sailed on two boats from Cyprus in an attempt to breach Israel’s blockade. He was accompanied by an 81-year-old nun, an 84-year-old holocaust survivor and Cherie Blair’s sister, Lauren Booth.

Just repeat after Sarah:

"I don't think we can second guess what Israel has to do to secure its nation."

"I don't think we can second guess what Israel has to do to secure its nation."

"I don't think we can second guess what Israel has to do to secure its nation."

If this line of thinking is good enough for Geo. Bush, John McCain, Sarah Palin, Barry Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, and the rest of the NWO Crowd, then it ought to be good enough for us!!!

LOL.

meh just a bunch of smugglers

they were probably trying to smuggle weapons and bombs to blow themselves on an israeli bus. israel should defend its borders just like USA should.

notice that they didnt kill anyone they were firing warning shots. also guess why was those scottish people there next to them and filming? cos they knew those palestinians were going to raise some trouble, its not like they accompany every fisherman to sea every day...

i can't say i see any wrongdoing from israel's part here.

"i can't say i see any wrongdoing from israel's part here."

Wow, so is it OK for the US to invade Iran 'cause they are "probably" trying to build a nuke?

Or is it OK for some foreign government to assasinate Bush because he "probably" intends to steal their oil?

The only justified use of force is self-defense, any other is aggression and is immoral.

i absolutly agree

seems to me israel was protecting its waters to prevent illegal entrance to israel and they used as little violence as needed, while at the same time showing they're ready to use lethal force.

the other options are:
1. actually using force, which is bad.
2. letting them in, which is also bad since its a security concern.

so it seems they did the best of all three possibilities.

Maybe I'm wrong

but I thought this was Palestines (fishing) water, not Israels. Sorry if I misunderstood.

My inclination leans toward your view....
