young American of Arabic descent?

You have done an amazing job in bringing the truth out in the open.
I can't believe they said 'Go back to Aushwitz!!!!!' How come this wasn't reported in any other media?? The media bias against Israel is unbeliavable! I'm so angry with the journalists and news agencies that refuse to tell us the truth.Why are they so ignorant??
It's heart-wrenching to see the soldiers so brutally attacked. I shall pray for their speedy recovery.
God bless Israel always.

A million thanks for making this video and letting us all know the truth. I wish more people could see this and understand that Israel is actually the victim and not the offender. It saddens me to see how so many people in the world are against Israel mainly due to their religions as well as media bias.
God bless Israel always. God protect Israel against her enemies.
(and this is coming from a non-israeli and non-jew. I hope more people realise the truth)

well made informative video. Please be aware that many people know that in Turkey and not everyone supports this insane government we have in here...

It is great that finally, as suspected, there were brutal terrorists on the ship to start a fight and hope that Israel would be put in a negative position. Thank you for this video and telling the truth. It is easy to see that they had motives other than good and I really am not sure who shot the American young man of Arabic descent. But, I suspect he may have been duped and then shot by the people on the boat already and possibly before the IDF soldiers even got on board. Certainly chaos was part of their goals. Again, thank you for telling the truth. Kathy

That`s a great video. The truth needs to be shared!
The world cannot be so ingenuous! Israel has all proves.
June 22, 2010 9:42 PM
This needs to be easily accessible on You Tube
This video needs to come up on You Tube when people search for videos like "I am Israel" and other videos that make excuses for terrorism. Is it available there? I couldn't find it on You Tube.
June 22, 2010 9:32 PM
Thank you so much for this file!
June 22, 2010 8:14 PM
Israel should just blow the ships out of the water. attempting to bust through a blockage is an act of war. should be dealt with as such. the world refuses to believe the truth so why does Israel continue to bend over to them?

Iran sending relief ship to the Gaza Strip
I hope the Israeli navy sinks this Iranian ship.
I know Iranians in San Diego and they would all agree.
The Iranian government is up to no good. Israel has every right to defend itself. It rightly should.
June 21, 2010 10:08 PM
the world is being lied to through the media this video should be widely spread.
aish-keep up your fantastic work!
June 21, 2010 5:38 PM
if it is true..that im completly sure that it is, you should show and share it for the entire world. show the world the true, give us tools to tell goym's that what open tv shows it's not true..
June 21, 2010 5:29 PM
Why are we surprised ?
Yet another propaganda coup for the terrorists. I pray the soldiers recover fully.
June 20, 2010 11:26 PM
I needed to see this Thanks
Theres a saying " a picture is worth a thousand words"
This one did it for me, though my love for Ysrael is not controled by the news media
I think you should show this oiver and over

There is no reason why any Israeli soldiers should have been lowered into the lion's den...the ship should have been stopped by outside means, without putting our brave and dedicated soldiers in harm's way. When will the Israeli gov't. stop handling the Arabs with kid gloves and show them their true strength? We (the Jews) are in the right and should stop behaving as if we are not! May Hashem protect Israel and their brave warriors..
June 20, 2010 3:37 PM
Thank you for this incredible video. It is extremely thorough and should be shared and distributed...
June 20, 2010 2:52 PM
U-N-B-E-L-I-E-V-A-B-L-E what the Arab media fabricated!
I cannot comprehend at all how the "Gaza Flotilla" turned the truth COMPLETELY around and made them look like they were the victims.
The IDF soldiers risked their lives by rapelling onto the ship, only to get attacked in cold blood! The Israeli army is one of the best in the world, but even they wouldn't have never dared to come up with such a horrible plan and executing it.
After seeing this (and many other videos alike) I can only bow my head and pray for health and quick recovery of the wounded Israeli soldiers.
May G'd be with them...

Being Politically Correct Is That Always Proper Done With Full Truthful Facts In Mind
The Political Correctness Of Us
By D.K. Milgrim-Heath © 2009-2010
It’s the worldly common expression of now-
‘Political Correctness’ fits us all but how?
We can be any religion by blood or by choice-
As we now speak up in one’s religious opinioned voice.
We can be any human skin color that comes to mind-
That can make a controversial spark of any kind.
Having our personal orientations agendas of whom we are –
Having freedom of speech or press we can go far.
Not every country has freedoms of the press or speech in its belief-
So their sounding boards are squashed no matter how brief.
Political correctness can be good yet at times be humiliating and unfair-
But it can be used for bullying and cruelty anywhere.
Of course still watching our ‘p’s’ and ‘q’s’ as that old saying goes-
Is political correctness the right way to be these days-who knows?
