Here’s a video of the Israeli navy speaking to the captain of the Mavi Marmara before intercepting it.
And here’s a fake of the same conversation, released on the IDF’s own blog, with voices crudely dubbed over a still of the video. The clip purports to be a recording of the Mavi Marmara’s Turkish crew shouting (In English, with American accents) about Auschwitz and 9/11.
Comments on the Youtube clip and on the blog are disabled, presumably to prevent anyone pointing out the fake.
So here we have the Israeli Defence Forces apparently using the memory of Auschwitz to falsify a video associating the people on board the relief ship with Nazism. If an Israeli institution is prepared to use the Holocaust this way, then nothing whatever that the IDF say about this incident can be believed.
If this turns out to be true, and on the face of it, I can’t think of a reasonable alternative explanation, then the IDF has lost all credibility.
