In response to a radio transmission by the Israeli Navy warning the Gaza flotilla that they are approaching a naval blockade, passengers of the Mavi Marmara respond, “Shut up, go back to Auschwitz” and “We’re helping Arabs go against the US, don’t forget 9/11”
In the early hours of the May 31st 2010, IDF soldiers boarded the ships of the “Free Gaza” Flotilla, after the ships refused to redirect their course. Aboard the Mavi Marmara, the soldiers encountered serious violence when, in a pre-planned attack, the activists on board attempted to lynch the soldiers with knives, metal rods and stole two of their guns. As a result 7 soldiers were injured and 9 demonstrators were killed.

Israel navy: “This is the Israeli navy, you are approaching an area which is under a naval blockade.”
Mavi Marmara: “Shut up, go back to Auschwitz… We have permission from the Gaza Port Authority to enter… We’re helping Arabs go against the U.S., don’t forget 9/11 guys…”
