Quick Hit: "Fighting Back"

Here's a quick example of a post from Dr. Josef Olmert's op ed about the main issue on everyone's mind nowadays, the Mavi Marmara raid:

Key phrase, in my opinion:
"No one fought against soldiers.The soldiers dropped out of helicopters, fully armed, and were shocked that these people were ready to fight BACK."
So which is it? Did no one fight against the soldiers, or did they fight against the soldiers but they were totally justified because the soldiers "dropped out of helicopters fully armed"?

These kind of basic inconsistencies and logic fails are a mainstay of Palsbara rhetoric, but it's rare to see two contradictory statements so clearly juxtaposed. Note how such a failure didn't prevent this comment from grabbing 9 favorites.
