    “Two dead, at least 30 wounded” as Israel opens fire at Gaza activists - They seem to have opened fire on the boats from the Israeli helicopters (I guess the ones we paid for)
    Report: Several casualties in clash between Gaza aid flotilla, Israel Navy -

    BBC is Confirming the Interception but no word on casualties yet – “Hamas says the interception took place in international waters, more than 150km (90 miles) off the coast of Gaza. Israel has made no comment”

    The usual....kill the peacemakers....very sad! I've heard unconfirmed reports of many more than two dead. What was their crime? What, for that matter, is the crime of the Palestinians, more so in Gaza?!?!?

    Does anyone have a fix on the precise location? I'm not entirely sure it matters except in terms of law... These folks are pretty much already deep into the international parish hall of shame. And the USofA which arms and supports them and, well, g'nite. May the world be somehow rosier in the morning.

    Yup. Will anyone actually believe that yarn that an activist grabbed a soldier's weapon?

    Remember when Cynthia McKinney's relief boat to Gaza was attacked and rammed by an Israeli Navy ship in international waters? She describes it here:

    She claims the Israeli lied and said the relief boat attacked their war ship. Sound familiar?
