The ghost of Jack Kevorkian for President's Physician: 2016
You don't get the rights and protections of international law unless you also agree to be restricted by it.
In this case, the only legal authority Israel had was the kind it made up for itself.
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

israel was stupid to pull this stunt the day after the UN resolution condemning its failure to comply with the NPT ... world opposition to its government will only increase as a result of these actions
Sad for all these poeple to loose there lives,it would be good if they can join together as the eu as one,also to make money.
God bless them all.
George Monboit "Neoliberalism is inherently incompatible with democracy, as people will always rebel against the austerity and fiscal tyranny it prescribes. Something has to give, and it must be the people. This is the true road to serfdom: disinventing democracy on behalf of the elite."
Just another facet to add to all the opinions from the "flotilla event" this morning. Believe the Israeli commanders deserve at least a little credit for tempering their response from what it could have been. If those had been my troops that dropped down the ropes and were getting somewhat savagely beaten, my inclination would have been to unleash a fury that would have left many more of the flotilla team injured or dead.
Not trying to sound melodramatic. Just offering some kudos to the Israeli military not reacting more so than they did.....
