Not satisfied with flattening Gaza's infrastructure and killing its inhabitants, the "most moral army in the world" (as described in June 2006 by Ehud "I-Colonised-Jerusalem" Olmert) has decided that it was time to show some real muscle by blocking medical aid (the ultimate WMD and a real threat to the existence of peace-loving Israel) the hard way... in international waters, of course.
Whatever happened to old time piracy?
Somali pirates, eat your heart out!
- The media doesn't like you very much. The mainstream media in the US and Europe loves Israeli pirates.
- You negociate. Israeli pirates never do.
- You have rusty rifles. Israeli pirates have artillery.
- A few hunderd hostages is all you can take. Israeli pirates can take up to 1.5 million hostages in one action.
