People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Israeli Ambassador: Soldiers Had 'No Choice But to Defend Themselves' | PBS NewsHour | May 31, 2010 | PBSMICHAEL OREN: I think Hamas is appreciably less popular among the population of Gaza today than it was three years ago.
People of Gaza look across at what's happening in the West Bank, where there's an annual growth rate of between 11 and 8 percent, a very, very high growth rate, where there are tens of thousands of new jobs, where there are talks going on between the Israeli government and the Palestinian Authority, where the Israeli government and the Israeli army has withdrawn from major Palestinian cities and Palestinian security forces have deployed, they look at everything that's happening on the West Bank. None of that is happening in Gaza.
And they conclude the only reason that's not happening is because of the regime that is ruling Gaza. And the minute that regime either disappears or ceases its war to destroy the state of Israel -- and that is its expressed intention -- it's actually in the covenant of Hamas -- then there's no need for a blockade. There's no reason for any restrictions whatsoever. There will be an open border.
So I can stab you in the throat with a kitchen knife then? Good to know.It actually does make a difference. Kitchen knives are not designed for stabbing someone and break easily when they are used to do so. The metal of kitchen knives is extremely hard so that it retains an edge longer but that also makes it brittle, try bending a kitchen knife someday and you'll see what I mean. A $6 pocket knife is a better tool for stabbing someone than a kitchen knife.
Oh and that 8 inch long 4 inch wide Jambiya battle dagger must have been used to cut some pretty big ****ing fruit.

Irrelevant, it doesn't matter if it was in international waters since it was clear that they were intending to run the blockade.Keep in mind, this attack took place in INTERNATIONAL WATERS.
Israel Rejects calls for International investigation. Israel rejects independent probe calls
I wonder what those who say Israel has done nothing wrong and that if Iran has nothing to hide why dont they allow international investigators?
I'd prefer to see and wait for all the facts to come in and some form of investigation to be complete before making an opinion either way.
