The deputy managing editor of the Jerusalem Post, Caroline Glick, claims credit for a racist video of Jewish Israelis singing "there's no people dying" about the flotilla attack. She should be fired for making fun of the dead.
World-wide reactions to the flotilla attack were swift in condemning Israeli behavior. But it didn't matter. Israel can endure international outrage and votes of 14 to 1 in the UN's Security Council, as long as that "1", the US, stands at its side.
The IDF's deadly attack on the Turkish flotilla suggests to me that Israel benefits more from being at war than it would from being at peace. How would Tel Aviv justify both the financial and military aid it receives if there were no 'threat'?
The Times' description of Hamas's goals ignores the wealth of evidence, known to all close observers of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, that the organization has been steadily moving away from its founding Charter.
Israeli President Peres views an incident in which Israeli commandos killed some unknown number of activists in international waters as a "humane" response to the flotilla's attempts to deliver aid to the civilian population of Gaza.
There are two profound psychological blocks that do not allow Israel's leadership to get off its disastrous course, once again proven by the Flotilla Disaster: one is sheer fear, the other is self-righteousness.
The Gaza Freedom flotilla is evidence of the shift that's taking place in international humanitarian aid. Since 2001, governments have declared aid organizations to be combatants when they help organizations considered to be terrorists.
