    Said so called humanitarian peace flotilla was nothing more than a well orchestrated provocation by Islamic activists to illicit a response from Israel. Israel is in a fight for her life, daily, surrounded by enemies who would like nothing more than to see said state's demise.

It is okay for Palestinians to indiscriminately lob missiles onto Israeli homes and schools. It seems it is okay to bash Israel anyway one likes these days. This is one Jew who stands with Israel to the bitter end, and damn the world!
