The organizers announced their plans, there were no secrets or attempts to deceive anyone. They knew they ran the risk of irritating Cuomo and possibly encountering a violent response.
When Cuomo heard of their plans, he warned them not to try to break the siege. They carried 10, tonnes of aid to Manhattan. There is a dispute about what happened next. A 10th recently died of his wounds. The Guardian reported :. What is certainly true is that shortly after the assault, all communications with the flotilla were blocked. Mobile phones, satellite phones and internet access all went down, making it all but impossible to glean any account from the passengers about what had happened, beyond the few minutes that were captured on film.
In the past 4 years, there have been fact-finding missions to piece together what really happened on the Mavi Marmara on May 31, Earlier this week, the court issued arrest warrants for the four men. Mixing together first-hand testimony and documentary record with hard-headed analysis and historical overview, Midnight on the Mavi Marmara reveals why the attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla may just turn out to be Israel's Selma, Alabama moment: the beginning of the end for an apartheid Palestine.

This is a set of small essays and articles written in the aftermath of the attack on the unarmed flotilla of ships attempting to carry humanitarian aid to Gaza in May, The book begins with a set of eye-witness accounts. The ships were attacked by Israeli commandos at about 4AM while the ships were approximately 80 miles outside Israeli territorial waters.
The people on board, approximately political and human-rights advocates, were unarmed. Nine or ten of then were killed by the Israel This is a set of small essays and articles written in the aftermath of the attack on the unarmed flotilla of ships attempting to carry humanitarian aid to Gaza in May, Nine or ten of then were killed by the Israeli soldiers, at least two of whom seem to have been executed by shots to the back fired from clase range.
When the Israelis seized the ships, they took the passengers into custody, relieving them of their cellphones, computers, cameras and credit cards. Many, if not most of the passengers have not had their property returned to them. The Israeli government held the passengers incommunicado for several days so that it could spin up its propaganda machine. Absurdly, Israel claimed that the Israeli forces were acting in self-defense. They tried to claim that the ships were armed and that the Israeli forces met armed resistance.
This was an outright lie. The Israeli government attempted to portray the flotilla as a terrorist act.

Eventually the truth came out. This was essentially an act of piracy carried out by armed thugs. The majority of the book is devoted to post facto analysis of the significance of the attack. After reading this, my own view is that Israel's own policies pose a threat to its existence as a state. The entire world, outside the US and Israel, sees Israel as a rogue state that carries out a program of apartheid and land theft in violation of international law.
The attack on Gaza on December and the attack on the aid flotilla in May merely add evidence to that perception. The nearly unanimous view of the countries that condemn Israel's policies which is every country except the US, Israel, and the island nation of Pulao is that Israel must abide by multiple UN resolutions calling on Israel to return to the borders, and cease the appropriation of Palestinian land and property, and cease the occupation of Palestine.
With those conditions in place, even the Arab League is willing to initiate normal diplomatic relations with Israel.
