UZIs vs Slingshots: New Footage Depicts Attack on Mavi Marmara

Brazilian-American filmmaker Iara Lee, a passenger on board the Mavi Marmara, managed to smuggle an hour of footage taken during the May 31 attack on a six-ship humanitarian flotilla bound for Gaza by the Israeli Defense Forces.

I think this article is highly misleading...dang it they didn't have UZI's, they were MP5's!!!

P.S. Good one, Mike, haven't heard the old "she's a commie" one in a while! Gawd bless Raygun!

Those were high-velocity slingshots, capable of firing a potato chip at trans-sonic speeds. This is why Israel banned potato chips from Gaza. A potato chip at high velocity can be as deadly as an Uzi.

Ain't that right Mike?

Lee's footage shows the helicopters' arrival and commandos rappelling onto the ship's deck but does not show any of the actual fighting.

The Israeli military has said that the commandos were first attacked by passengers on the Mavi Marmara and shot in self-defense, and released video clips supporting this.

An online profile of her leads me to conclude that she may have communist sympathies as she has been on so-called "cultural exchange projects" in Iran and is as a trustee for the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology.
