    No, that isn't what Henning Mankell said. You're putting words in his mouth. And he was on the Swedish ship Sofia anyway, not the Mavi Marmara. He has no first-hand knowledge at all of what happened there.

    Here's a rather lengthy interview, where he talks at length about what happened on his ship, which is all he was a witness to. Show me where he says anything about the Israeli forces attacking sleeping civilians:

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/jun/03/gaza-flotilla-attack-henning-mankell

    As for Mattias Gardell, he's an official spokesman for the Ship to Gaza effort, not an objective journalist or neutral observer. Why should we believe anything he says?

    Yes, we're all allowed to have our own thoughts about these events. But if you believe the Israelis are responsible for the attacks in New York, London and Madrid, you're living proof that some of us don't think at all.:rolleyes:

    Being abusive to me does not make your case. I've posted words attributed to Henning Mankell in the Canadian article. You quote the Guardian, which prints the stories that the governments want us to believe, yet you refuse to believe an official spokesman of the Ship to Gaza effort, a humanitarian trying to help the oppressed.
    It is yourself that does not think, your mind is made up for you by the MSM.

    Here's a quote from the blog you linked us to:

    How the world reacts to this atrocity will determine where the world goes from here. So far America, which is simply Israel by proxy, has rolled over and permitted this display of naked terror. Other countries are not so accommodating, such as Turkey, though these will probably be isolated as time goes on and pulled into line, behind the all powerful, rampant and unstoppable Israeli behemoth.

    That night when a ship was attacked may well go down in history as one of the most important days in the history of mankind. I fear that a paradigm shift has just occurred under our gaze, and that we really have just stepped into the start of a New World Order, one in which, very soon, no one on this planet will be safe, wherever they are or whoever they are, from open Zionist terror.


    I'm sorry. But if you're going to swallow that, you deserve to be laughed at...:p:p:p

    if u dont wanna carry weapons (because of whatever issues) a can of bear spray is better than an little girlie can of mace....this wasp size can with pistol grip has the quantity and distance to repel boarders as well sprayed into an exhaust flume is enough to make most trailing boats turn away... as a nice bonus combine with a painters respirator/mask ... another low cost and easily accessible deterrent is to carry a hand held laser... very intimidating factor at night and very visible to prospective boarders..as well can be used in other emergency situations...

    A pistol to carry on the bridge (commonly referred to as the "Judge") a .410/45 6 shot revolver..good for clearing the cockpit on most sportfishes... glock 22 .40 if u prefer a semi-auto, teamed with a mossberg 12 gauge riot gun for close to short medium range and a Carbon 15 assault rifle for distance with a good hands on training and follow up practice...

    There are companies such as "THE EXECUTIVE SOLUTION" out of FT LAUDERDALE that train u how to deal with this situation, firearms training, hand to hand combat and more. They train yacht crews, cruise ship personnel, and even flight attendants to be in control, think ahead, and respond quickly and properly....

    The master of that ship told the Jews to go back to Auschwitz.

    That would be the Taurus Judge. A five-shot revolver, actually. As you say, it shoots .410 shotgun shells or .45 Long Colt rounds. It's surprisingly accurate when firing .45's, in spite of having a long cylinder to accommodate the .410 shells.

    When I'm not on the internet mocking innocent peace activists, I play with guns for entertainment.;)

    By the way, I wouldn't recommend shooting shotgun shells or pistol rounds in a typical flare gun, even if you have one of the adaptors made for the purpose. You'll probably be in at least as much danger as the person you're pointing it at.

    Oops, I should have read more carefully. You were talking about using the Taurus for a flare gun. I suppose it would work fine, if you had .410 flares. I've never seen any, but then again I haven't been around flare guns that much.

    I have heard entertaining stories about trying to shoot 12-gauge flares from a full-choke shotgun and getting them stuck at the choke, though....

    Again, you can only see, and swallow, the thoughts that the Israeli controlled MSM feed your mind. You have to listen to the weak as much as the strong, power does not quarantee truth or righteousness.

    But I do not have to listen to the weak-minded. ;) "The all powerful, rampant and unstoppable Israeli behemoth"? Come on....

    Simply being weak confers no special powers of truth or rightousness on a people or a cause. As a matter of fact, I've found the weak are at least as likely to lie as the powerful. They try to gain through subterfuge that which they're unable to wrest from their foes by strength.

    Do NOT try shooting 12g cartridges in a flare gun......"someone" I know did this (yep stupid but hey, such is life) and shot the front off the poor thing. Fortunately it landed on the deck so I could reweld the alloy frame back together, and all was well..........some mothers do have em.
