Peaceful, Humanitarian, Civilian Flotilla Had an Arsenal

New footage shows the weapons captured from the “aid” boat Mavi Marmara, which was the scene of an attempted lynching of IDF commandos. Lots of knives, gas masks, body armor, night-vision equipment, homemade slingshots with “Hezbollah” and “Hamas” written on them (arts and crafts are a good cure for boredom on the high seas), and my personal favorite, electric chop saws, which were used to cut off sections of the ship’s railings so they could be used as clubs. Clever! Let’s go to the video.
