As the dust settles, and some of the ‘truths’ come out, a new wave of tweets on Israel's attacking the Gaza-bound flotilla take over the Internet. Here are a few reactions from the Twittersphere summing up reactions of users around the world, some asking questions we are yet to learn the answers for.
Biledna wonders out loud:
IDF has the boat, so why does it not disclose ALL security camera images so that we see what really happened.#flotilla
Israelis were shooting before they boarded #flotilla. http://nyti.ms/98H0SF Media coverage shaped by propaganda. http://bit.ly/a7mAfj
And Floatingstone asks:
So, which one is
it Israel? You say IDF DON't use 9mm handguns but the IDF soldier says
they do. Yet more lies and fabrications. #flotilla
Sami Parisis adds:
Activists stories all line up and are extremely accurate. IDF soldier accounts are all different and have gaps. #Flotilla all the way!
In another tweet, Parisis claims:
#israel has employed tweeters to put in a good word. #Flotilla is defended by people who believe. Not who get payed. That's the difference.
And Amna Saeed remarks:
The US and #Israel are apparently the only countries incapable of terrorism. #gaza #flotilla
Meanwhile, WorldPeace2Day has been pumping out tweets – which are being retweeted across the network – round the clock as the developments continue to unfold. Among its most recent tweets are those two back to back tweets which ask this question:
Why did Israel attack Gaza Flotilla in International waters? THIS IS AN ACT OF PIRACY THAT SHOULD BE PROSECUTED
Don't let Israel ‘wiggle out’ of answering the question: “Why did you attack and kill people in International waters?” #freedomflotilla
In another tweet, WorldPeace2Day asks:
If Israel has a right 2defend itself, then why does it provoke
Palestine & Gaza 2defend itself &then call it an attack?
And speaking of defense, Sarah Janett exclaims:
Now,I admit. Israeli soldiers were defending themselves from most dangerous weapon: Pikachu http://bit.ly/9QKXDV #flotilla #FreedomFlotilla
The cynicism continues in other tweets across the network. Kiliffe questions the use of yet another investigation into Israel's actions. He tweets:
Doesn't matter if the Dalai Lama investigated the #flotilla attack, Israel would still call the report a piece of crap.
And last but not least, Jnoubiyeh exclaims:
If anyone ever needed any more evidence about the absolutely evil, sick & homicidal nature of the #Zionist regime, they got it this week.
