    The life of an anti Israeli militant on a fake humanitarian aid mission ain't easy.

    Greece has so far failed to disclose what legal justification they have to hold the boat.

    We're going to have to start calling you Whiplash Tinmore. They are holding the ships because the US, Israel, Greece and others think trying to break the blockade is illegal and an irresponsible provocation that may lead to unnecessary harm to some individuals.

    Hamas is recognized as a terrorist organization by the UN and by most western countries and it is illegal under international law and the laws of most western countries to give aid to terrorist organizations. Since the flotilla aims to make it easier for Hamas and other terrorist organizations to import weapons by breaking the blockade, it is in violation of all of these laws and it is legal for any country to stop it.

    All third grade name calling aside, the flotilla is a people to people movement. The rest is all Israeli propaganda bullcrap.

    Nonsense. If the flotilla organizers or passengers, or you for that matter, had any interest in the welfare of the people of Gaza, they would be trying to liberate them from the clutches of Hamas, not trying to break the blockade to make the Hamas oppressors of the people of Gaza stronger.

    Gaza has been under some form of siege for decades.

    What was Israel's stupid excuse before Hamas became their boogyman?

    BTW, "Today, the United Nations views Palestinians as freedom fighters, struggling against the unlawful occupation of their land by Israel, and engaged in a long-established legitimate resistance, yet Israel regards them as terrorists."
