June 1, 2010 - In what could be a serious blow to Israel's narrative on the killing of at least nine humanitarian activists making their way to Gaza through international waters, raw video by an Al Jazeera producer, who was filming during the raid, appears to provide evidence that the IDF opened fire on the flotilla even before boarding it.

Israeli forces assert they came under attack by the pro-Palestine civilian group, and video released by the IDF appears to show one soldier being tossed overboard amid a scuffle with unidentified individuals wielding melee weapons, like clubs and chairs.

The Obama Israel complications got worse recently when Israeli's attacked a Turkish vessel delivering support aid to Gaza killing 9 individuals on board. Obama is trying to achieve peace in the Middle East, and with the recent attack there is no telling what the future move is. Obama has stated that before he jumps to any conclusions he wants to know each and every last detail from the situation. This is said to have actually upset the Israeli's. If you ask me the entire thing is a mess that will either lead to a lot more conflicts, or be swept under the rug. It is anyone's guess how this will go from here.
