This is a terribly disappointing post.
1. Why keep using this word "botched" attack on the flotilla? Did they mean to kill every passenger?
2. How patronising to act as if the destruction of sewerage works, cheese factories, farms, houses; shooting of anyone going within 300 metres of the everpresent fence, or of fishermen in the sea; air raids and bombing most days, are all right because the "smuggling tunnels" allow some people to make money.
3; The constant attack on fairly-elected Hamas, 'islamist" though many christians are present, is not needed.
4; Why are you always harping on what benefits Israel? The USA and the craven Europeans do enough of that.
