"Nicaragua suspends from today its diplomatic relations with the government of Israel," said the statement.
The Nicaraguan government "emphasized the illegal nature of the attack on a humanitarian mission in clear violation of international and humanitarian
law," it added.
The Israeli navy backed with helicopters attacked early Monday morning the flotilla in the Mediterranean international waters with live ammunition and
gas bombs, killing at least 10 people on board and injuring over 30 others.
The UN Security Council on Tuesday condemned the Israeli move, calling for "the immediate release" of the ships and personnel held by Israel.

This may not seem like a big deal and for the most part it isn't, however it is a very good indicator of how the rest of the world is viewing Israel,
over the latest attack on the aid flotilla. Sure, Nicaragua isn't really important in the grand scheme of things but Israel is completely dependent on
how it is perceived around the globe. Being supported by the US alone, simply isn't good enough for the survival of the Jewish nation. I have a sneaky
suspicion that many other governments will do the same as the days and months pass by.
Here in America, the public doesn't really get a good view of how the rest of the world thinks about our policies, including the policies of Israel.
Our media is basically censored in a way to keep Americans from realizing just how unpopular these policies may be. For instance, we probably won't
hear about the governments who are condemning this attack, other than the governments that our leaders want to slander.
I wonder how many other countries are going to follow in Nicaragua's foot-steps?
