    want to stop a peaceful demonstration in international waters? Why would it permit Israel to raid a civilian ship on the high seas or in Palestinian waters? Particularly as Israel managed to kill off 9 civilians the last time? There is something slightly nutty about the obsessive way netanyahu labours his point, when the UN has already TOLD Israel to stop the occupation of Gaza and to let in more than the minimum subsistence level of supplies. The truth is that this isn't aimed at the UN at all, they would tell him to take a hike, it's just play-acting the tough guy for the domestic, not particularly bright right-wing audience.
