The Aid Flotilla Fiasco

The US policy of supporting Israel, right or wrong, should be abandoned. An aid flotilla should enjoy the same respect as a red cross painted ship, and in any case these group of vessels were running international waters when the israelis launched their operation.

Mr. Ehud Barak’s statement that Israel is only defending itself is, in this case, getting very thin. If this reasoning even applies here, the natural course of action is to impose a naval blockade and announce it publicly.

The Israelis chose to do it covertly and this has become a fiasco resulting in 10 deaths.
