    The big question (with regards to apologies and compensation) is whether the Israeli boarding was legal or not. The boarding doesn't magically become legit if it is found that the blockade was legal. It is possible to have a just cause and still act improperly. Imagine for example that you have a son and that you have brought him to the playground. You notice that an older boy s bullying your son. So you pick up your chain-saw and you chop the bully up into tiny pieces. Using your logic this would have been a perfectly justified action, since the bully "started it". Needless to say that is incorrect. (Yes the example I use is excessive. It is not meant to portray the IDF's behaviour, it is meant to illustrate that your actions are not always correct just because you are doing it as a reaction to something bad done by someone else.)
