It’s only been hours. But as someone who has been a devoted supporter Israel for many years, it seems to me that the attack on that boat carrying supplies was an act of profound stupidity.
If, as has been reported, the people on the ship were unarmed, I cannot see how the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu can survive. If they were unarmed – if – Netanyahu has recklessly plunged Israel into a downward spiral of instability and further isolation.
Your views are welcome, but keep it calm. I won’t hesitate to delete anyone who gets out of hand, on either side of the divide.
