Tweets from the flotilla massacre

# freegazaorg...about 14 minutes ago:
Israeli spin is that THEY were attacked first. Of course, you can see the video where they rappel, aim and shoot at civilians sleeping

about 1 hour ago:
There was no fire from our side. Watch the IHH video of soldiers firing the moment their feet hit the deck. They shot civilians asleep.

about 1 hour ago:
Israeli mouthpiece says soldiers responded to fire by firing back.That is a lie. Video from IHH shows soldiers landing on deck and shooting

  1. This clumsy act of piracy is truly a tragedy. I don't know how anyone with a conscience can defend the murder of these brave people. I can state with confidence that their deaths were not in vain. The world will care this time.

    Thanks. I've been thinking of posting there, but the registration process always stopped me. It seems they want an awful lot of information just to comment on an article. But maybe I'll go through it when I have time to really dive into a discussion, which is unlikely today.

    But for now, I want to mention that I've been perusing mainstream coverage, and I've noticed that there are no names of the victims, or persumed victims. It's that type of thing that dehumanizes this side of the issure. Also, the Israelis account of the "battle"(as they call it), is interesting. First of all, the horror of being attacked by a group of people(whose boat you are stearing)armed with sticks and poles is laughable. And I suspect the israelis were killed with friendly fire-it sounds like they are already getting a cover story together already, with a tale about the victims grabbed the guns of the Israelis and shot them.

    Registration on Mondo is simple. For information about myself I just wrote "an artist and a blogger". That was it. Really simple.
