I like how people are arguing if this is legal or not..
the UN has nothing it can do by whine, and other than getting condemned over something that logically and legally makes sense, nothing is going to change..
Cause Israel has long ago leanred that peer pressure does not get you into the cool club
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
Well, blow me away. Joe Biden supports Israel in this.

U.S. to urge new approach to Gaza aid | News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News | Headline | International News
The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Associated Press
WASHINGTON – The Obama administration considers Israel's blockade of Gaza to be untenable and plans to press for another approach to ensure Israel's security while allowing more supplies into the impoverished Palestinian area, senior U.S. officials said Wednesday.
The officials say that Israel's deadly attack on a flotilla trying to break the siege and the resulting international condemnation create a fresh opportunity to push for increased engagement with the Palestinian Authority and a less harsh policy toward Gaza.
"There is no question that we need a new approach to Gaza," said one official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the policy shift is still in the early stages.

YOU claim to have watched the video. there is absolutely NO ****ING WAY you watched that video and dont see the people on that boat swarming those soldiers and swinging chains, metal rods, and all manner of other ****...and i mean swinging for the fences, with the INTENT to do significant bodily harm...
but you cant see why the IDF was FORCED to fire back?
You, my friend, are full of ****. Your entire vision is clouded by Jew hatred. That is THE only answer. You KNOW damn good and well that the ONLY reason that group went was to engage in a conflict. They got PRECISELY what they wanted...and then assholes from all around the world feign outrage. Consider the bull**** flag thrown.
