Subject: RE: BS: New Israeli atrocity: attack on Gaza aid
Well, I'm not condoning the attack - if it happened as reported by one side and not the other. On the other hand, Israel is at war and Gaza is blockaded - and I have no interest in discussing the legality of the war or Israel's existence for the umpteen zillionith time. The Israelis said that the aid on that convoy would be delivered if landed at a regular port. The actions of the convoy's leaders were intended solely to provoke the response that they did, not to assist the Palestinians.
