Israeli Pirates Claim “Self-Defence”

with 3 comments

A highly trained team of crack commandos from a an army with a reputation for efficiency and ruthlessness abseil down onto your unarmed ship just before dawn.  Others attack from the sea from high speed RIBs with grappling hooks.  They are clad all in black with the most advanced military helmets, body armour and night vision goggles.  Each is armed with an ultra- modern, silenced machine pistol and at least one handgun.  They undoubtedly have grenades and other personal weaponry.  They are backed up by missile ships with heavy machine guns and cannons.

They are resisted with any weapon you have available – metal bars, sticks, chairs, knives, anything you can turn to your defence.  Despite their overwhelming weaponry you manage to overpower one or two but they end up opening fire and killing many.

Then they claim self-defence.  They seek sympathy for the fact that you resisted their attack.  They seek to portray themselves as victims.

Quod Erat Demonstrandum.

That Which Is Demonstrates Itself.
