    As a pedant I must take issue with those who say that Israel’s attack was illegal. Were the British forays in mid ocean illegal when they sank the Bismarck or the Graf Spree. Was Germany’s attack on the Luisitania illegal? Doubtful, the US was supplying a nation that Germany was at war with. I am not surprised that lawyers not versed in either maritime or International law get it all wrong. It’s what lawyers do. Maybe if someone was paying them $500 an hour they would have incentive to examine what they blurt out without knowledge. I digress, the issue is not whether this stupid engagement was legal, it was. Being stupid and falling into such an obvious trap is what should be illegal. Netanyahu and his staff of bigots must be on Hamas’ payroll. They certainly don’t do Israel any good. If Israel is to survive this incompetent, bullying group has got to go.
