    NOTE: When I composed the list of excuses, I had in mind such an excuse as implied by this article, and my excuse no.4 is designed to make it look more logical (i.e., the terrorist could not use one of the tunnels), but this article does reach this level. PATHETIC HUMOR, IDF. 5. Our attack party was vastly outnumbered, and was attacked by the passengers. We had to shoot in self-defense. 4. We had intelligence of a big fat terrorist on the ship who wouldn't fit into one of the Gaza tunnels from Egypt. He had to be stopped. 3. Turkey didn't learn to behave after the "low chair" incident. We had to teach them a stronger lesson. 2. Now Iran will get scared of us and will stop their nuke program. 1. We wanted Egypt to open the Rafah crossing and take over responsibility for Gaza from us. It worked!

Bernie Sanders is smart to keep his mouth shut about Israel

The U.S. presidential candidate has the Democratic progressive vote in his pocket and is wise not to reveal that, on the Middle East, he stands more to the right than his fans would like him to.
