Here’s the initial Zionist spin of the Gaza flotilla (thank you Jerusalem Post):
IDF Navy commandos encountered fierce resistance early Monday morning as they boarded international aid ships on the way to Gaza to break the Israeli blockade of the Strip.
According to defense officials, upon boarding the ships the commandos were attacked by activists with rocks, knives and metal pipes.
The soldiers responded with crowd dispersion measures.
At one point activists succeeded in stealing the weapon of one of the soldiers, leading to an escalation in violence.
