Video: BBC Panorama special on the Mavi MarmaraHere's the BBC's Panorama program on the Mavi Marmara, which was shown on Monday night. It's in two parts.
Here's Part 1. Let's go to the videotape.
Here's Part 2. Let's go to the videotape.
Isn't it odd that the IHH thinks that 'passive resistance' includes throwing people into the sea?
Turkey's denial of involvement seems more than a little disingenuous.
I'm surprised (and pleased) that the IDF gave the reporter access to the naval commandos. Reality is that you have to do those things if you want to be heard in the world.
Is using metal bars also 'passive resistance'?
I'm watching this with you - I'll try to come back with more comments later.
UPDATE 12:07 PM
Note what she confirms about the medicines.
On the whole, I thought this video was pretty fair. It's a shame they didn't pick up the clip of 'Israeli Arab' MK Hanin Zoabi trying to stop the IDF from taking the wounded to Israeli hospitals.
Panorama has a blog, and there's a posting and a lot of comments about this show here. A lot of the denizens are quite upset that Israel comes out looking good from this one.
Let me know what you think.
