Apparently, the 40 IHH operatives who came aboard in Istanbul had walkie talkies to communicate which they only shared with crew members, and they controlled movement on the ship, including the crew’s.

If this is true, then all the activists on the ship, including Israeli MK Zoabi, allowed themselves to be used and have knowingly withheld this critical information in their discussions of what happened that night.

As if on cue, we have the Turkish President likening the raid to something al Qaeda would do, not a sovereign state. I wonder whether he has any comment about the IHH men who came aboard in Istanbul. The ship was apparently owned by the IHH thanks to the assistance of the Turkish government.
