Report Criticizes Israel PM Over 2010 Naval Raid

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's decision-making was badly flawed as he oversaw a deadly Israeli naval raid on a Gaza-bound ship two years ago, according to a government report released Wednesday.
The harsh findings were an embarrassing assessment of Netanyahu's handling of a military operation that sent Israel's relations with once-close ally Turkey plummeting and drew widespread international condemnation.

Eight Turks and a Turkish-American were killed on May 31, 2010, after the commandos stormed the Mavi Marmara, which had set out from Turkey at the head of a six-vessel flotilla trying to breach Israel's Gaza blockade.

"Substantive and significant deficiencies were discovered in the decision-making process ... that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu led and oversaw," State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss wrote in the 153-page report.

"The prime minister's decision-making process took place without orderly, coordinated and documented team work, even though the senior political, military and intelligence ranks were aware that the Turkish flotilla was different from other flotillas," it said.
Netanyahu, the report continued, "did not internalize that the forcible stopping of the flotilla was liable to spark a violent confrontation on the decks of the Mavi Marmara."

The prime minister of the Hamas government in Gaza demanded that Israel apologize to Turkey and lift its blockade on Gaza.

"The condemnation is coming out of (Israel's) own mouth," Ismail Haniyeh said in a statement. "We call on the world to pay attention to this report and to bring the occupation state to the international courts over its crimes."

Wednesday's report was not the first official Israeli investigation to assail the conduct of the raid, though it is the first to criticize Netanyahu. An investigation of the military's performance issued shortly after the raid found it was marred by flawed intelligence-gathering and planning....

El Sicko is at it again!! EdtheZIT Diaper Head and Paid HamasARAT Sock Puppet is BEST known by the language the JEW HATING, Israel HATING moron uses THOUGHOUT TOPIX hiding out in a MUslim Country:
Depraved sexual insults, bile, bigotry, threats, disinformation and character assassination. Thatís right: Iím talking about ďAnti-Jewish, anti=Israel, HamasaRAT Sock puppet trolls" who infect the Internet with Pro-Hitler, Pro-Nazi, Pro-Hamas, Anti-Jewish and anti-Israel propaganda.
The Internet, though, is the latest, some might say the greatest, propaganda playground, and Hamas cannot cope with factual, passionate, well-documented stories that expose its war crimes and unrepentant criminality.
If youíve come across Hamas Sock Puppets like these morons, on-line or otherwise, you have learned that no amount of reasoned argument or intellectual maturity has any effect.
Thatís because the Hamas PAID PROPAGANDISTS don't care if they come across as ignorant, obnoxious, nasty or inane.

The Israeli commandos acted properly and moderately. Any other country would have blown the whole ship out of the water. The Turkish thugs were not real peace activists, just hired scum armed with guns, pipes and knives. Erodgan should apologize for trying to stick his nose into other people's affairs.

Someone actually said their are people paid to act on behalf of the Israeli govt and all these ppl did was copy and paste the same crap on any media site where ppl leave comments regarding Israeli policy and their actions. Well now I believe them. No matter what anyone says these degenerates come out with the same ol' lines, anti Semite, Jew hater, holocaust denialists....... You get my drift.
Instead of actually dealing and confronting the issues and problems most Israelis actually condone illegal settlement building and the over the top aggressive attitude of the idf. Shame. The world is changing tho and the fact that S.africa can see similarities on the issue of apartied should be a massive wake up call to the citizens of Israel. Stop American Aid to Israel and we would see a two state solution within a year. Btw, I'm neither a anti Semite, a jew hater or a holocaust denialist.

BB was criticized for the way he ran the Marmara affair and not for doing the job. Thank you very much, assholes. They should have killed 100 muslims but they are lucky, we are the nice guys.
Syria massacre is getting close to 15.000, go stinking arab muslims kill each other, make us happy, make our day.
