Video Shows Gaza Flotilla Spokesperson Lies

The BBC dutifully carries the following:
Audrey Bomse, a spokesperson for the Free Gaza Movement, which is behind the convoy, told the BBC Israel's actions were disproportionate.

"We were not going to pose any violent resistance. The only resistance that there might be would be passive resistance such as physically blocking the steering room, or blocking the engine room downstairs, so that they couldn't get taken over. But that was just symbolic resistance."
Symbolic of what--ambushing and murdering Jews?

Palestinian apologists are attempting to pull a fraud on the magnitude of Jenin.
Remember what the media reported then?
Jenin 'massacre evidence growing'
Israeli tanks have begun to pull out 
A British forensic expert who has gained access to the West Bank city of Jenin says evidence points to a massacre by Israeli forces. 
Prof Derrick Pounder, who is part of an Amnesty International team granted access to Jenin, said he has seen bodies lying in the streets and received eyewitness accounts of civilian deaths.

The Dundee University expert said the Amnesty investigation has only just begun but Palestinian claims of a massacre were gaining foundation as the team continued its analysis.

He said: "The truth will come out, as it has come out in Bosnia and Kosovo, as it has in other places where we've had these kinds of allegations.
Back then, the media and 'humanitarian groups' swallowed the lies hook, line and sinker--merely on the words of the Arabs, before it was proven that there was no such massacre.

Will the media be more critical this time?
