I have a piece in the Mirror today - a Yes/No with John Pilger on the question, Is Israel a Rogue State? It's here.

While it's certainly a good piece, I'm not terribly sure why you bother Stephen. The court of public opinion has already ruled on the whole issue, before even seeing the evidence. Note the first (and as of posting, only) comment from Brian stating there were no weapons. People don't want to believe Israel did nothing wrong, nor do they want to give Israel the same chances as any other Nation.

More lies from the JC:

The ships did not enter the ports peacefully - other ships were boarded and people were beaten. The Sfendoni for example. The ship was attacked with tear gas and live ammunition.

If Israel had been interested in peace why did it attack unarmed boats in the dead of night?

Mr Pollard also claims that the ships were 'laden with weapons'

Show us the weapons then. Were are they?

what do you define as a weapon? there seem to have been kvives, metal bars, catapults, molotov cocktails and they had gas masks. They were expecting confrontation. This is the evidence of what they had on board:

Mr Pollard, Have you seen the cache of weapons that the ship was 'laden with?'

All nicely arranged over a Palestinian flag?

All those missiles, assault rifles, tanks, helicopters stored in the ship's bowels. how did they manage to fit it all in - what with all those dirty muslim terrorists on board also.

Ah I see gold.sarah is back - going to copy and paste some more Jihadi nonsense for us?

Akiva: I would challenge your assessment of British public opinion. The opinion of the media and the government does not necessarily reflect the opinions of everyone, and we aren't all as naive or stupid as they think we are.
