Israel: Seized aid ship's passengers being deported - CNN.com

"Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel "used the exact same procedure" aboard the Rachel Corrie as it did on the Mavi Marmara."

Interesting..

I am finding it funny that this is not major news...and there is little fuss around this...could it be cause no one got hurt/Israel did everything properly so there is its not news worthy :shock:

These were real peace activists who just wanted to deliver aid to Gaza strip... and not to make headlines about the Israeli blockade.
All of them welcomed the IDF soldiers peacefully and didnt resist to anything.

exacly my point, now contrast between the first fleet that is all over the news, and this one..

One of them was peaceful and no one got hurt and it did not get that much media

One of them was not peaceful and had 9 people killed and now getting a lot of media..


One of them actually cares about the people in Gaza, and the other just wants to see everything crash and burn..
:roll: Codos to the people on the Rachel Corrie for being human =]

Before i suggested that if ever again such events take place like on the first one, and the idf is confronted with violance, they should just not let any of it into Gaza..As a punishment, and only allow ships that come peacefully like this one ;)
