From the comments in Haaretz about the boat seizure
1. It is laughable that Israel is so scared of one tiny boat and 21 unarmed civilians. This shows the level of cowardice in Israel.
2. Israel has made sure this story will gain the publicity that allowing the boat to reach Gaza would not have created.
3. Israel has confiscated medical supplies, toys and olive trees, all items guaranteed to make Israel look pathetic.
4. Israel has again proven that they still occupy Gaza.
5. What is the difference between Somali pirates and the Israeli navy? The Israeli navy has no excuse for their actions.
6. Israel seem hellbent on making sure that Shalit stays in Gaza for the rest of his life.
Israel is not only a joke but it`s own worse enemy. I can`t wait to see how Israel spins this to a world still waiting for justice after the Gazan genocide of Jan/Dec.
