    In a sign that some Dems in Congress may rally behind Israel in the face of international condemnation of the attack on the aid flotilla, Rep. Anthony Weiner of New York strongly defended Israel's move in an interview, blaming the bloodshed on Turkey and the activists for instigating the conflict.

    "This was about instigating an altercation and they succeeded," Weiner, one of Israel's leading allies in Congress, told me. He insisted that the activists piloting the flotilla were offered other alternatives by Israel, such as docking the ship and transporting the supplies to Gaza by land.

    "If you want to instigate a conflict with the Israeli navy it isn't hard to do," Weiner continued. "They were offered alternatives. Instead they chose to sail into the teeth of an internationally recognized blockade

    corrected that for you.

    and you're a liar.

    what the president said is that we regret the loss of civilian life and trust that israel will conduct a fair and impartial investigation of the circumstances as they occurred.



    at least tell the truth. :cuckoo:

    I don't agree with anyone about all things. But he's a good guy. He's smart. His district loves him.

    He is a brave guy! Much braver than the President who is cowering away somewhere.
