    One has to look at the cost of not doing it. Israel is getting off cheap and is going beyond the call of justice and morality in the way it treats the flotillas. What exactly do you want the Israelis to do when there is a refusal to disembark? Sit with them? All police forces ultimately resort to force and on the scale of what is possible, Israel's use of force was pretty mild. Despite all the propoganda appearing on these pages, everyone knows that, which is exactly why Israel continues to receive support. Too bad supporters of terror. Israel will do what she can to protect herself. The big contextual point here, of course, is Israel's standing offer to deliver humanitarian goods to Gaza. That, isn't good enough for the supporters of terror!
