Can someone clear something up? I can't understand if a few statements in this article are sarcastic or serious. For example: "The Israel Defense Forces had little trouble explaining the naval commando raid yesterday to the Israeli public. The troops slid from helicopters into a violent crowd, which attacked them with sticks. It's no wonder the troops opened fire in self-defense." Is that sarcasm, as in a joke or is that a serious statement intended to show the truth of the matter? Thank you!
