Israel attacks aid ships? Update III

This is not going to go away, like other incidents have in the past. Turkey is not letting the situation die down. They are very upset - it's still front page news there. Turkey is demanding that the blockade be lifted, and that an impartial group look into the attack. The UN also wants the blockade lifted, and even the Obama administration may be changing its mind.

Eight of the nine killed were Turkish, and prayers were held for them today. The group that organized the flotilla says that 3 activists are still missing.

It's still front page news in Israel too, and some of the Haaretz columnists are really hammering Israel.

If you're looking for alternative voices in Israel, be sure to check out this blog in Haaretz: A Special Place in Hell.
