Photos Show Terrorists on the Leftist-Islamist Gaza Flotilla Were Armed

Recently released photographs from the last Gaza flotilla show the “peace activists” on the Mavi Marmara armed with weapons.
From the IMRA facebook page:

Yediot Ahronot published photo on 7 June 2011 from the Marmara from 2010 showing one with gun and another with automatic weapon with MK Zuabi in the area a minute later.

Israel National News reported:

Photos of passengers on the Marmara ship sporting the guns were published on Tuesday in the Yediot Acharonot daily. It is not clear why the photos were not published until now.

The flotilla, ostensibly organized to bring humanitarian aid into Gaza, was organized by the Turkish organization IHH, of radical Islamic anti-Western orientation and with a history of ties with and fund-raising for Hamas.

When the ships neared Gaza some 13 months ago, Israel warned them not to attempt to breach its legal blockade of Gaza. However, the Mavi Marmara ship did not adhere to the orders, and IDF commandos were forced to board the ship and stop it by force. They did not expect to be attacked by the humanitarian aboard the ship, but when they were – including being set upon with metal pipes, chains and knives, having a soldier nearly thrown overboard, and others briefly taken prisoner – they were able to fight back, killing nine of their attackers, including five known terrorists.

Barack Obama’s close friend and anti-Israel radical, Rashid Khalidi, raised cash for a ship named “The Audacity of Hope” to sail in the next Gaza Flotilla. 34 radical Americans will sail on the ship.
