    The fact that this massacre has taken place in international waters in defiance of international maritime law and the fact that this was blatant piracy in the fashion of Somalian outlaws in the Indian ocean is excellently omitted from the article, whereby the entire context is lost to the readers. This is such a mundane trick in the Israeli communication arsenal, a continuation of the habit of omitting the fact of Israeli occupation of Palestine in all news. The article is not discussing whether this "operation" was in principle just, which is the core of the matter, but rather who fucked it up a la clumsy bandits at a crime farce. ps. Take a good look at the weapons cache found aboard, discussed by the Israeli representative at UN Security Council. See the kitchen knives and screwdrivers proudly displayed by the IDF at their tweet site. And then compare it with the capacity of the commando units. I wish it could be ridiculous. But the basic flaw of reason is too deep on the Israeli government to laugh.
