Israel’s Huge Mistake In Stopping Gaza Flotilla Boat


No, I have not been kidnapped by antisemites who forced me to write the title. Bear with me.

The Israeli Navy stopped and seized a fishing boat that attempted to break through the naval blockade around the Gaza Strip, arresting the eight Palestinians on board, some of them people injured in recent border clashes with Israeli troops, the military said.

The vessel’s purported destination was Cyprus, however the boat lacked the equipment necessary to safely reach the island nation, making it more likely that this was a symbolic act of protest.

We totally should have allowed them to try and make it to Cyprus. Heck, we should have even given them a send-off!

Not that the Freedom Flotilla will admit to the subterfuge.

Meanwhile, this is not surprising. These flotillas are purely for propaganda, and have nothing to do with humanitarian aid.
