Report Israeli Navy Raids Gaza Aid Flotilla, 10 Confirmed Dead in The Rest of the World Posted June 4, 2010 · Edited June 4, 2010 by Riverwind Only after they were attacked however. Up until that point they were peacefully steaming into Gaza.They have been in armed conflict since Hammas started shooting rockets into Isreal. That is why the blockade is in place and Isreal is entitled to enforce it.Wars are usually fought between countries and given there's only one sovereign state in this one.Call it a civil war. Same rules apply.This incident took place between two antagonists with no intervening authority that either have to answer to.So what? The example of loggers illustrates how peaceful protest works and what happens if peaceful protestors resort to violance. 5 ships were boarded with incident. Only one ship had the thugs that decided to start a fight. They are once who are responsible.
