Terrorists Storm Gaza Flotilla

This will show the true colors of the 50 or so countries represented by passengers on the ships. In a just world every one of those governments should expel every member of the Israeli embassies, send them packing back to Tel Aviv.
Apparently this was in international waters.

Up to 16 killed as Israeli forces storm aid convoy

"Up to 16 people have been killed when Israeli naval commandos boarded aid ships bound for the Gaza Strip, meeting resistance from pro-Palestinian activists, Israel's Channel 10 television said."

Here is a link to an Al Jazeera blog that is being updated in real time with the latest news related to this massacre:
Live coverage: Israel's flotilla raid

Personally, I have come to the conclusion that the best thing that I can do to help the people of Gaza is to keep them constantly in my prayers. Faith is the only thing left after protests, and letters and calls to congresspeople have had no effect.

From the Wall Street Journal:
Mr. Erdogan, in televised remarks as he left Chile, said Israel had carried out an act of "inhuman state terror." Eschewing the cautious response of most Western leaders, Mr. Erdogan said he wanted to assure the world the ships in the flotilla had been carefully checked and contained only humanitarian aid—not weapons. He said he also would call a meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to discuss Israel's action in what he said were international waters. Turkey has the second largest military in NATO, after the U.S.

The strength of Turkey's response appears to stem from close involvement in the Gaza relief convoy—a direct challenge to Israel's blockade of the Gaza strip. Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc said Monday that 400 of the 581 passengers on the Mavi Marmara were Turks, making it likely that some of the dead were Turkish citizens.

Things are moving so fast it's hard to keep up. The Turks have pledged to send another aid convoy, only the next time it'll be escorted by warships.
