They are now claiming that five passengers on board the Mavi Marmara were “active terrorists”.

Israel’s “terrorist” list includes two Turks, one French, and two US citizens.

Ken O’Keefe, a former US marine, who is on the list, is accused of being a “radical anti-Israel activist” whom the Israelis say wanted to “train a commando unit” for Hamas.
