UnNews:Israeli ‘Nerf war’ causes international outcry
5 June 2010
The examination results, by amateur forensics students in Istanbul, give clues about how the game unfolded after the "commandos," armed with the most sophisticated Nerf weapons, stormed the Turkish ship "bomba bir yük" in the dawn hours on Monday.
In one case, Ince said, a Nerf war loser had been shot at extremely close range.
In one month, the forensic report will be submitted to the principal of the Istanbul school. There have already been petitions from families of Turkish losers this week, submitted to state prosecutors to sue the government of Israel on charges of illegal Nerfing, as well as immorally blocking a human weapons convey.
A spokesman of Hasbro Toy Company, manufacturers of Nerf weapons, told CNN, “Any child can buy our Nerf guns, so how can we refuse to sell to Israel? The kids from Turkey can get them too. Nerf guns don’t win wars. People win wars. Nerf War is just a game!”
