    Re: Israel intercepts Gaza flotilla, says Hamas

    This seems to be SOP for the Palestinians. They stage a circumstance that forces Israel to take action. It turns violent and people are killed. It is an attempt to put Israel in a bad light. That they had a hidden camera present says it all. It was a psy-op for the Palestinians.

    So you LIED, or don't know what the hell you're saying.. as you did say "International" and referred to it's "LAW" in your last post.
    What a Stupendous Blunder or LIE.



    They where not in "hot pursuit" since the convoy had not at that point yet broken any...wait for it...laws.
    If someone is coming at you, and told you so.... even tho they haven't hit you yet, one can well then use self-defense/or as I put it [pre]Hot Pursuit since they have said what they are going to do. Run your Blockade.
    You don't have to wait until they breach your borders when they said that's what they're going to do and are hours away from exactly that.
    ie, 1967 War.


    I am not your "sweety", and you will please not call me that again.
    I edited that out before your reply, but my sentiments havemn't changed.

    It depends on what you consider "being attacked".

    Is it breaking the blockade? Maybe, but they were still in international waters, so no they didn't violate anything at that point.
    Is it boarding the ships? In international laws, yes.
    Is it throwing bricks at the commando? According to the IDF yes, but since they had no right to board the ships, throwing bricks at pirates is self-defence.

    We disagree about that, but the result of this event is clear. It's one more diplomatic defeat for Israel.

    This is UNbelievable and Pathetic.
    I do not think you understand what quotation marks mean. In this case, it means that it was some one elses words.

    If someone is coming at you, and told you so.... even tho they haven't hit you yet, wone can well then use self-defense/or as I put it [pre]Hot Pursuit since they have sai what they are going to do. Run your Blackade.
    There are procedures to follow in situations such as this. Assaulting the ships is not how things are started, especially in a situation like this where it is not a naval force.


    I edited that out before your reply, but my sentiments are the same.

    BTW, what happened to Hatuey when called me outright "Dishones" in this very string while you were posting in it?
    Thinking before you post and insult people is a good idea.

    If you have a problem with something Hatuey said, report it. Bitching about it in thread is not going to do you any good.

    The question will be what actions did Israel take. No one "forced" Israel to do anything, they chose to. Yes, the flotilla was probably looking for a confrontation. However, that does not mean Israel has to give it to them. Too much still uncertain about this to really judge.

    Embarassed huh?
    Those were part someone else's words and part yours, but YOU used it/Quoted it in ref to it's [International] Your word "LAW".
    So it was you not only mentioning it, you agreed with it and reiterated it.

    You own it. You were Caught/STUFFED/LIED and are now Wiggling.
    You'll never get out of it with me tho.


    There are procedures to follow in situations such as this. Assaulting the ships is not how things are started, especially in a situation like this where it is not a naval force.
    Au contare, as said by many including the passengers... the ships fully expected to be boarded.
    YOUR Biased/spun word "assaulted".




    Thinking before you post and insult people is a good idea.
    Yes, But only one of us is capable of that.

    I did.
    LOL.

    I don't think the result is clear. It all hinges on whether Israel claims the right to board ships at that distance from their coast. I believe international waters start 200 nautical miles from the coast. At 90 miles, they were in Israeli waters.

    Isn't it 12 miles?

    No, I am not embarrassed. It is clear to any one reading my post I referred to your use of the term. Funny how you went after that and not the content of what I said.


    Au contare, as said by many including the passengers... the ships fully expected to be boarded.
    YOUR Biased/spun word "assaulted".
    I have even said that I thought the flotilla "was probably looking for a confrontation". Funny that. By the way, what would you call landing an armed force on a boat?




    Yes, But only one of us is capable of that.

    I did.
    LOL.
    I have not had to retract a single thing I said. That makes one of us.
