Internationalisation of flotilla attack

Quick post on Israeli attack:

Israeli attack in international waters to a convoy bringing  humanitarian aid to Gaza shall not be regarded as a regional conflict anymore.

Turkey is reported to have lost at least nine citizens in the raid after a Turkish ship was the site of the greatest violence between Israeli forces and pro-Palestinian activists. More than any other country..

Carrying many activists around the world, the flotilla was a symbol of international solidarity, perhaps not against Israel as a state but against inhumanity of Israel… I believe wording shall be carefully chosen when it comes to international relations. Rather than the states, their governments shall be questioned.

Also one crucial point not to miss… This is not a two-sided conflict between Turkey and Israel and shall not be regarded as such. This is an international quarrel.

NOW Lebanon has an extensive coverage of the attack. To read the piece, click here.
