There are a few important facts bearing on the flotilla adventure. (1) The men on board were certainly not "terrorists". They had no guns or bombs. When their boat was boarded in inyternational waters they used what weapons were at hand to defend themselves. This is not even a crime, much less a terrorist act. (2) Israels response to the flotilla was botched. This has already been admitted at every level in the IDF and the government of Israel. (3) As a result of Israels botched raid on the flotilla, the IDF killed a number of Turkish citizens. This merits an apology. The fact that Israel has refused to give an apology does not mean that people consider Israel innocent of these killings. Quite the contrary. Israels "image" would be improved by taking responsibility and not shirking it as is their habit.
