The people who were to provide nonviolent barrier to the Israelis coming on deck and taking over the boat formed three rows – two rows of three and the third row of two persons blocking the wheelhouse door to protect the wheelhouse for as long as possible.Israeli soldiers then formed a line sealing off people from the back and preventing them from coming to the front of the boat again.Eventually the Israelis figured out that Herman was the captain and demanded to take him to the wheelhouse.Herman was refusing the medicine.
