Gaza Flotilla Incident
We usually stay away from commenting on politics. However, the Gaza Flotilla incident which occurred last night (March 31st, 2010) has sparked an outcry around the world.
With critiques of the actual blockade aside, members of a foreign military are allowed to board any ship entering a militarized zone. And international understanding is that peaceful activists must not respond violently. After all, according to JPost, the first 5 of the 9 vessels were allowed to proceed peacefully after consenting to searches by the Israeli Navy. Why did this ship (the 6th one) react differently?
Although the details are still being released (and we reserve the right to change our own minds as new evidence comes forth) we feel it is vitally important to watch exactly what happened.
The IDF gave warnings to the Gaza Flotilla prior to their being boarded:
Here is up-close footage of IDF Navy soldiers being attacked as they board the vessel:
