The Pictures the BBC Won’t Show

Far from the occupants of the Mavi Marmara, as Israel's black propaganda would suggest, trying to kill its soldiers, the passengers actually tended to them and treated their wounds.

Contrast this with the the fact that 3 of those who died on the Mavi Marmara bled to death because they went untreated for two hours. Yet just like the Red Indians, those who are the victims of violence become the perpetrators. Except this was not a John Wayne film.

After having worked itself up into a veritable lather to justify its cold-blooded murder of human rights activists, pictures have been published in the main Turkish daily, Hurriyet, of those on board the Mavi Marmara, despite the ship being under attack, tending to and protecting those very same Israeli soldiers.

The Israeli army however has not been put off its stride. These photos are proof of the danger these soldiers were in! Whatever happens the propaganda message must not be changed.

The BBC, naturally, haven’t bothered to comment on these pictures or even to comment on the Israeli practice of stealing all the activists’ phones and cameras in order to ensure that only their Orwellian Newspeak got out.
