Siegman's friend is sadly misinformed: Majority Americans living in border areas know that there were the usual number of ships entering the Gaza area for inspection that day--as we have here in NY daily on the Canadian border-- but in the one of the seven ships, there were armed terrorists waiting to kill. If that happened here, Americans or Canadians or other, the terrorists would be killed. It IS a post 9/11 world. Duh. "We get it." This is very insulting to hear that some Israeli thinks that the world is so anti-Semetic. Tell your friend to stop wearing the victim sign around his neck--we are all "fair game" for being attacked, not just the Jewish people--it is insulting to all intelligent people to read this. It only promotes distortion of truth.
