There’s some very interesting first-hand reports coming in from the 12 Malaysians who were on two different ships bound for Gaza. Those of you who only read the Western press may be interested in the Malaysian accounts – from those who were there.
They include medical doctors, local TV reporters, politicians, Muslims and non-Muslims. The two doctors treated the two Israeli soldiers who were hurt and who might have possibly bled to death otherwise. (Netanyahu called the vessel afterwards “the ship of hate”. I wonder if those 2 injured Israeli commandos agree?) One of the TV reporters tells the harrowing story of interviewing two Turkish activists on either side of him–when they were both shot.
Of course, if you don’t want the truth to be known, you don’t let the TV men come home with their film, do you??
Particularly interesting is the allegation by the head of the Malaysian mission that he has in his possession a hitlist – with names and pictures – taken from an Israeli soldier after he was searched and his gun thrown overboard. The leader of the delegation is reported as saying that all the men on that hitlist are now dead, whereas members of the Malaysian delegation – none of whom were on the list – were hit only by rubber bullets.
