A 'peaceful' IDF soldier shooting a 'terrorist' peace activist

MondoWeiss is one of the best sites covering Israeli Palestinian News. Their coverage of the latest events with the assault on the Turkish ship and the massacre of Turkish peace activist. Many of their latest posting are refuting the idiotic claim that the activists were - like every thing else in the universe - a threat to Israel.

Today they posted a graphic video possibly of the shooting at close range of one of the activists after 2 soldiers have been 'peacefully' pummeling him with their boots. May be the poor activist was in so much pain, and the soldiers' merciful IDF-trained souls could not bear to see him suffer any longer.

Yes, that was it. Mercy killing. I must be grateful to the Israeli forces that they have not send a bill (yet!) to the victim's family charging them for the bullets and labour.

Take a look at this so when idiots make stupid claims about what went on that day, you know what the truth is.

On May 31, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the actions of IDF soldiers who had conducted the raid on the Mavi Marmara, killing at least nine of its passengers, as “a clear case of self-defense because as our soldiers were inspecting these ships, they were attacked – they were almost lynched. They were attacked with clubs, with knives, perhaps with live gunfire, and they had to defend themselves – they were going to be killed.”

That was before video emerged appearing to show two Israeli soldiers first pummeling with their boots and then shooting one of the victims as he lay at their feet. To stand above an injured man and then finish him off with rounds from an assault rifle can by no ones estimation be described as an act of self-defense.

The link to that posting can be found here.


Other Videos:And after a massacre, some petty theft seems like a minor transgression. I guess, it is a foreigner peace activist's money - so it is free game.


  1. If we could only see the next few seconds of the video. From reports I've read, the IDF troops were armed with paintball guns and handguns. The gun the soldier is holding looks like a pump action rifle which may be the paintball gun. At that point of the incident, I assume the soldiers were already given the green light to fire their handguns.

  2. Too bad we do not have the next few seconds. Unfortunately the guy receiving the bullets in the head would have been dead by then.

    Give it a rest Michael. When it is always that 'the part we do not see is going to exonerate the IDF', the case seems lost.

    The nine dead men had 40 bullets in them. That is quiet a few bullets 'per head' - no pun intended. Over 40 are injured, 6 are still missing. Even Israeli reservists are calling for an investigation.

    Give it a rest....

  3. Is this the modern day version of a mini-genocide? We have the people in Gaza in an open prison.
