Re: Israel - Palestine - Part 2

The report is not saying anything new.

The report agrees 100$% with Israel on the "hard facts" - the blockade is legal, the flotilla had no business breaking, it's activists had a violent element
and was organized by some very dodgy people.

The "soft facts" - using "too much" violence, seems like a way to give something to the Turkish side. After all - When attacked with knives, sticks and swords the soldiers protected themselves. Maybe shooting the wannabe-Jihadis was over reacting, I wonder how other armies handled similar situations.

Let's see what the Turkish reaction will be.

Re: Israel - Palestine - Part 2

Turkey expelled the Israeli ambassador & rejected the report.

I wonder if they will send another ship with used toilets to Gaza to push their point, maybe even provide an escort ?

Re: Israel - Palestine - Part 2

I look forward to one day riding along the Peace Highway enjoying dates in Tehran, cardamon coffee in Baghdad, baklava in Aleppo, pistachios in Diyarbakır, honey in Bekaa, olives in Jerash, tea in Ramallah, falafels in Jerusalem, orange juice in Khan Yunis... etc. etc.


Then firing up the Quattro and heading across the southern mediterranean coast...


Dreams to remember.
