Israelischer Soldat, der sechs Friedensaktivisten umbrachte, soll mit Orden geehrt werden

Six of the nine passengers killed in an Israeli raid on an aid convoy bound for Gaza were shot by a single Israeli commando, who is being considered for a medal of valour for saving his injured comrades as passengers attacked them with clubs, knives and even guns they had taken from downed Navy Seals.

Mehr erfährt man aus der britischen Times - die übrigens nicht bereit ist, die Story von den Terroristen als Friedensaktivisten, die ihnen von Israel aufgetischt wird, so einfach zu schlucken:

Some Israeli officials have accused the Turks who attacked them of links to terrorist groups, although it was unclear why, in that case, the soldiers of Flotilla 13, the elite Navy Seals unit involved in the operation, were briefed only to expect peaceful resistance.

The question also remained as to why the passengers, if they were indeed terrorists, did not use deadlier weapons against the approaching naval launches and helicopters hovering overhead.
