Why dictionaries should be allowed through the blockade...

Pro-Palestinian demonstrators, again, show a limited understanding of the word 'peaceful':

Protesters demonstrating against the Israeli attack on a Gaza-bound aid ship have attempted to storm the BBC in Manchester.

More than 800 people marched through the city centre
and down Oxford Road, where the crowd surged at the BBC's entrance,
smashing its front doors.

One man climbed to the top of the building to plant a Palestinian flag and there were at least three arrests...

Talat Ali, 40, organizer from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign said:
"This is a peaceful demonstration against the attack that has taken
place on the Gaza flotilla."

Wonder where they got their definition from?

The violence I can understand, we have come to expect that, but why did they attack such an overtly pro-Palestinian organisation like the BBC? I don't know what else the BBC could do to prove its pro-Palestinian credentials other than perhaps get John Humphrys to chant "Khaibar, Khaibar, oh Jews! the army of Muhammad will return!" every morning.

Israel, again, showed a limited understanding of the word 'peaceful':

Israel attacked unarmed boats with gunships, helicopters, masked soldiers, live ammunition, tear gas and stun guns. All in the dead of night. Yet Israel says it only wants peace and a peaceful outcome.

There were protest all around the world - if every city from Kuala Lumpar to Athens, from Naples to Manchester.

The world knows the truth.

Very funny Miriam, the humour will be lost on those killed by the Israeli's and the 1.5 million Gazans currently on a 'diet'.

A heartless and ill-judged headline.

Boats (plural)? Funny, of the five boats, only one of them had any problems. Strangely, this was the one which has video evidence showing the soldiers were brutally attacked.

"There were protest all around the world - if every city from Kuala Lumpar to Athens, from Naples to Manchester.

Meaningless. The number or location of Pro-Palestinian supporters in the world is irrelevant. Your arguements are getting rather tired and desperate.

The Sfendoni was also attacked. There are plenty of testements to that.

Why did israel confiscate everybody's mobile phones, computers and cameras?

So that footage of people being beaten and shot by masked soldiers couldn't get out.

But the footage will get out.
