Flotilla Choir: 'We Con the World'

JERUSALEM, Israel - A group of Israelis released a music video mocking the crew of the Mavi Mamara, the Turkish-owned flagship that led the "blockade busting" Gaza flotilla at the beginning of the week.

Produced by Latma, which creates Hebrew-language political satire for the Internet, the video features the Mavi Marmar's captain and crew singing about how they "con the world."

"We think this is an important Israeli contribution to the discussion of recent events," Caroline Glick said on her website," and we hope you distribute it far and wide."

Meanwhile on Friday morning, Israel Radio reported that the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) had uncovered more evidence confirming the flagship's lethal intent.

Further investigation of the ship revealed gun-sights and ammunition clips not compatible with IDF weapons, along with coded messages about kidnapping and killing soldiers.

Passenger recordings of their intent to become shahids (martyrs for the cause of Islam) were also discovered.

The findings confirmed statements by al-Jazerra cameraman Andre Abu Khalil, a passenger on the ship, who gave Reuters an eyewitness account.

Khalil said about 20 Turkish men, using metal pipes, slingshots and clubs, bludgeoned four soldiers sufficiently to drag them to a lower deck.

According to Khalil, when the soldiers finally received permission to use live ammunition against the attackers, one of the "activists" announced by megaphone that they would release the four soldiers in exchange for emergency medical treatment for wounded passengers.

Khalil said an Israeli Knesset member, likely Arab MK Haneen Zoabi, served as mediator.

The wounded soldiers were brought to the upper deck and transported by helicopter to hospitals.
