Israel launches full scale assault and says it was "defending" itself

Israel launched a massive assault against a flotilla of boats seeking to break the Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip and bring food and medicine to the 1.5 million starving Palestinians, and Israel's response from Danny Ayalon, the Deputy Foreign Minister, is Israel was defending itself. It is an amazing demonstration of clever Public Relations spin. Israeli soldiers who stormed the boats with guns and with surprise in international waters, claimed that when they landed on the boat and surprised the passengers with their guns and full battle gear, the civilians on the boat tried to defend themselves, which in Israel's eyes is an act of aggression. Tragic.
