    and I would like to present article 1 of the law of basic human dignity and common sense. just because you can find a way to use the law to justify what happeed doesnt mean that what happened changes its character; many a criminal has found a loop hole in the law to escape punishment, does that mean they didnt commit crimes? no it mean that a man made law is imperfect. yes the flotilla disobeyed the israeli military.. and that´s their god given right above any stupid law you might cite. it is the duty of any decent person to stand up for injustice and fight opression and come to the help of someone cornered and abused. i insist, to resist the blockade is the RIGHT of these activists. and no law, and no amount of clever words or jargon or propaganda changes the basic fact, as ever, it is the IDF that did the killing, and that is the only truth we can all agree on, justify it the way you want, they boarded the boats and they did the killing. the only deserved thumbs down goes to your inability to deny the lie.
