"The deputy foreign minister said that the Gaza flotilla did not heed Israel's calls to halt its movement toward Gaza on Monday morning, and stressed that no sovereign country would have allowed such a provocation to take place." They were headed for Gaza, not Israel, yet the ‘sovereign country’ he refers to can only meant to be Israel. At the same time Israel always claims they are no longer occupying Gaza. I am so sick of this endless lying, obfuscation and playing with words.
