Reportedly, the Mavi Marmara has a sister ship that was sold to a Greek company and is called "Dream."
Was "Dream" used in a staged production of the Mavi Marmara raid?
Via suraci, Chuckyman, something very interesting....
Yeah, um, please explain.....?

The unraveling of this tall tale on the high seas began on the morning of Friday, June the 4th when the poster known as Shadow made the following remark to another forum poster known as JayRodney:
“I had a close look at web pics of the Mavi Marmara and the ship in the vid that shows the Turks attacking the IDF as they land. I do not believe it is the same ship. Compare them though, I’d like your opinion on it.”
To which JayRodney responded: “I have to conclude by my initial observation ‘Mavi Marmara’ should be visible 36-37 seconds into the video. Octo is getting screen shots and we will make the best comparison based upon available evidence.
I think it’s safe to call shenanigans. It looks suspiciously like Mossad Productions, I’d say the margin of error is less than 1%. This is most assuredly propaganda.”
Then the proverbial bomb was dropped, irrefutable evidence provided in the form of an animated .gif file:
The poster known as Octo said: “ok, the pics are from slightly different angles, but to the best of my knowledge at approximately the same place of the ship(s) superimposed: doesn’t even look like the same ship to me.”
Proof positive! The boats name should have been visible in at least one frame of the SKY NEWS video. Not only is the ships designation ‘Mavi Marmara’ conspicuously absent, but the entire vessel is clearly different; it’s not the same boat!
This IDF footage is clearly fabricated, I wonder how the Israeli government will explain this away?
I believe the technical term is "busted."
It puts THIS BEHAVIOR in a whole new light now, doesn't it.
This development also explains why there has been a discrepancy about what time this raid took place. At first we were told 2am, and then some reports said it happened later, around 4:30am. As the following video shows, which was taken on the Mari Marmara, the raid took place at dawn. So it was not pitch black, and you can hear very clearly the EXPLICIT INSTRUCTIONS to the PEACEFUL PEOPLE ON THE BOAT over the loudspeakers:
"Do not show resistance … They are using live ammunition … Be calm, be very calm."
"We have no guns here, we are civilians taking care of injured people. Don't use violence, we need help."
New footage has emerged of the Israeli assault on a convoy of aid ships headed to Gaza in which nine activists were killed. The high-quality film was reportedly recorded by New York-based documentary maker Iara Lee aboard the Mavi Marmara, the Turkish ship that bore the brunt of the Israeli attacks. Israel attempted to confiscate all footage recorded by participants in the Gaza Freedom flotilla – including taking away mobile phones – but Lee managed to smuggle one hour of video out of the country by hiding it in her underwear, it was reported.
