    You don't seriously think she gives two-hoots about those people do you? It's all a publicity stunt. In the true tradition of Sharpton and Jackson. She just wants to keep her name in the media.

    Besides, why shoot a buncha holes in somebody just to go patch them back up again?

    They're caught in the middle of this through no wrongdoing of their own, after all. Why shouldn't they receive relief from peace activists in the US and the EU?
    What right does Israel have to intercept such a mission?
    Israel has the right because it is a war zone and they have the right to make sure the enemy doesn't get armed.

    Armed with food and medical supplies?
    They may think they have that right.
    It remains to be seen whether the rest of the civilized world agrees with them.

    Nah. For me, it is only at Cynthia McKinney - and it has nothing to do with what just happened. It comes from having lived in Georgia and dealing with her idiocy for six years.

    How would Israel KNOW they have ONLY food and medical supplies without an inspection of the boat?

    Exactly. Before this latest shooting war started, Israel allowed authorized, inspected humanitarian supplies by truck and by boat, but the reason for the blockade and inspections was because Gaza was receiving arms and explosives mixed in with the little crates of food and meds.

    Anyone who tries to steam an unauthorized, uninspected boat into a blockaded war zone knows that they are going to be challenged and probably boarded as soon as they leave international waters. Israel was following the boat, probably to do just that, when the boat apparently started zig-zagging. Apparently the video shoes that the boat zigged when it should have zagged and rammed into the Israeli vessel, not the other way around.

    Again, I haven't seen the video, but it apparently exonerates Israel... on this incident, anyway.

    I was wondering what ever happened to Cindy until I saw her mopping floors in our high school building last night. She really does a heck of a job. You can see your refection in our floors now. God bless her little heart.

    No you dumb ****** your boat was rammed for trying to break the blockade. Too bad they didn't do us all a favor and just sink it with you on board. Bringing supplies to terrorist and getting stopped... imagine that.
    Mr V.,I suspected they may have been short on communicateing their true intentions to the Israeli military.Activists often make their own rules as they go along(heck if you follow all the rules how are you going to get anything done). So anyway if anyone wants to provide relief,much needed relief I`m sure,go through the proper channels before entering the channels. P.S. And if as you suggested they were supplying the enemy,they are just darn lucky they weren`t sunk.

    They support Hamas, guilt by association. These "peace activist" are bringing aide to Hamas, do you REALLY think the HAmas government wasn't going to take those "aide supplies" and use it for their fighters? You didn't REALLY believe the "poor Palestinian people" were ever going to see so much of a band aide of any supplies did you?

    Seriously?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
