    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu canceled plans to visit the White House on Tuesday after Israeli commandos killed at least 10 activists aboard a flotilla heading toward Gaza overnight with aid and arms in violation of an Israeli blockade.

    The White House is taking a cautious approach before chastising Israel as it awaits more details on what happened in the conflict. The United Nations was preparing an emergency session that would most likely end in condemnation.

    Netanyahu had been expected to arrive in Washington, D.C., Tuesday after leaving Canada, where he's been meeting with officials there. Instead, he is headed back to Israel.

    White House spokesman Bill Burton said Monday the United States "deeply regrets the loss of life and injuries sustained" in the incident.

    I could be wrong but I suspect that this could be the end of 60 years of peace for Israel.

    Indeed. Good for Netanyahu. He understands leadership, unlike our craven poser.

    Good for Israel. The Palestinians want peace, get out of Israel and stop killing innocent people. Why do people feel sorry for the palestinians? Do they forget what they have done to Israel over the years? It is funny how the palestinians can kill innocents but then when Israel defends themselves they are condemnd. Get over it hurray for Israel.

    Leadership: Going home to try to head off a PR debacle after your military massacres a bunch of civilians. What a leader he really is...
