Note the Cresent Star flag drapped on the side of this fake "peace" boat.
The fake "peace-activists" came armed to the teeth for a pre-meditated attack with knives, clubs, firebombs, and other weapons.
From Chris Mitchell The Ambush At Sea:
"Expect to hear worldwide condemnation of Israel for this morning's raid on the "Freedom Flotilla." As you listen to the reports, here are some questions to keep in mind":
1. What were the motives of those on board the flotilla?
"Palestinian Media Watch just released this video. It's an al-Jazeera report before today's incident showing men on one of the ships chanting " Khaibar, Khaibar, oh Jews! The army of Muhammad will return!"
"As PMW explains, "Khaibar is the name of the last Jewish village defeated by Muhammad's army in 628. Many Jews were killed in that battle, which marked the end of Jewish presence in Arabia. There are Muslims who see that as a precursor for future wars against Jews. At gatherings and rallies of extremists, this chant is often heard as a threat to Jews to expect to be defeated and killed again by Muslims."
"The clip also shows an interview with a woman who said the goal of the participants on the flotilla had "one of two happy endings: either martyrdom or reaching Gaza."
"This story reveals a group girding themselves for battle and martyrdom, not simply on a humanitarian mission."
2. What happened to the soldiers during the battle?
"Here are two YouTube clips released by the IDF. This clip shows one member of the flotilla stabbing an IDF soldier from behind: The other clip shows a number of incidents including thefirst IDF soldier deployed on the ship being attacked and thrown to the lower deck and attacks on the IDF soldiers using metal objects, a stun grenade and a firebomb."

To it's credit Cyprus banned the Moonbat flotilla of fake "peace-activists" from it's waters.
Unfortunately, the government of Cyprus has no real control over it's northern coast since that is still under "illegal occupation" by Turkey.
Yes, that's right. Northern Cyprus has been under illegal Turkish occupation since 1974.
From an earlier post on this:
In 1974, the military junta of Greece staged a coup to overthrow the government of Cyprus. Turkey used this as a pretext for invasion and occupation. In the wake of the onslaught over one hundred thousand Cypriots were forcibly expelled from their homes and land in northern Cyprus.
The Turkish military remains in northern Cyprus to back up their puppet Islamist government there.
When a "Right of Return" is legitimate:
"The invasion and occupation has had disastrous consequences. About 142,000 Greek Cypriots living in the north – nearly one quarter of the population of Cyprus – were forcibly expelled from the occupied northern part of the island where they constituted 80% of the population. "
"These people are still deprived of the right to return to their homes and properties. A further 20,000 Greek Cypriots enslaved in the occupied area were gradually forced through intimidation and denial of their basic human rights to abandon their homes. Today there are fewer than 600 enslaved persons (Greek Cypriots and Maronites)."
[ Don't hear much from the Islamists or their Dhimmi allies demanding this "right of return".]
