Reader comment on item: "Free Gaza" Flotilla Defeats the Israel Defense Forces

Submitted by Michael S (United States), Jun 1, 2010 at 09:19

Sometimes a country has to put up or shut up. There was plenty of evidence that the "aid flotilla" was designed as a PR campaign. Israel warned not to continue on and Israel was ignored. Israel only "lost" this round because the World HATES Israel and wants to find reasons to voice that hate. No matter what Israel did it would have "lost" in your opinion. Rachel Corrie DESERVED to die because she was putting her life on the line to defend an arms smuggling tunnel. If you rise up to kill or abet the killers then you are liable for your own death. Daniel, you are putting the entire onus on the Israelis by saying they have lost the PR fight. Well, guess what? The World hates Jews and Israel will never WIN a PR campaign.
