In our previous post, "A study in bias", we noted Reuters casting a skeptical eye on Israel's Gaza embargo while credulously accepting the putative humanitarian aim of the Gaza flotilla. In our post just below, we link to an article with an account by the captain of the Turkish-flagged Mavi Marmara where he testifies that the IHH passengers on board premeditated and prepared for violence.
Now comes proof that the sole purpose of the IHH-sponsored Turkish ship was to provoke a violent confrontation with Israeli forces. Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has confirmed that there was no humanitarian aid of any kind on the Mavi Marmara.
We await Reuters next report that the passengers were indubitably on a pleasure cruise of the Mediterranean.
