Interview with a Hero

The Jerusalem Report has published an interview with one of the IDF commandos who killed 6 of the flotilla terrorists. “S” was the last commando to land on the ship.

Upon landing he saw the following situation:

Looking to his side, he saw three of his commanders lying wounded – one with a gunshot wound to the stomach and another with a gunshot wound to the knee. A third was lying unconscious; his skull was fractured by a devastating blow with a metal bar.

Immediately he took command:

He pushed the wounded soldiers up against the wall of the upper deck and created a perimeter of soldiers around them to begin treating their wounds, he said. He then arranged his men to form a second perimeter, and pulled out his 9 mm. Glock pistol to stave off the charging attackers and to protect his wounded comrades.


“S” singlehandedly killed six men. His colleagues killed another three.

Now here comes the kicker, from the ship’s own captain.

The Turkish captain of the ship later told the IDF that the “mercenaries” threw their weapons overboard after the commandos took control of the vessel.

This was confirmed by Israeli forensic experts who examined the ship found casings belonging to a weapon that was not used by the commandos.

It’s well worth to read the entire article in the Jerusalem Post.

i love the idf service people

i wish their own commanders did too

they sent them right into a trap...one that was planned in order not only to kill the idf, but to wound israel

the ships were flying under the flag of turkey

this was an out and out act of war

problem is, turkey is a member of nato

israel should petition nato to have turkey expelled

hanks for this, and for the link.

That is what I call a true hero: looking after his wounded comrades, defending them against the attackers.

People must have a very warped mind to call this a 'massacre'.

Btw, here's the link to a cartoon on today's TIMES/London, which might be of interest:
