I can't stand Lieberman, but he is right. Either our action was legitimate (which I, and published legal scholars believe is the case) in which case those responsible for the voyage and the mercenaries and the attack on our servicemen should compensate our injured and reimburse us for the expense of the takeover and removal of an illegal ship, Or - our action was illegitimate, in which case even our staunchest allies, and many Israeli's would have been in an uproar - which did not happen. I just don't get it: Someone comes to do you physical harm, and they end up physically harmed. How the heck is that your fault. To clarify - men on that ship viciously attacked the navymen who warned them in advance that they were coming to divert their boat from an illegal course. How could anyone reasonably demand compensation for these men. If they want compensation, let them ask whoever the heck sent them to pick a fight with the IDF.
