Oh no the Israelis are using human shields again!
I think the good news here is that while this is a proposed belligerent act, it is also one of obvious mounting desperation, where the continued
imposition of an unlawful an immoral blockade is causing more and more of a ripple effect through Israeli society.
We have seen a lot of desperate ploys in how Israel has tried to manage the information flow, altering and misrepresenting much of it to try to put
every thing into a false more favorable light regarding the blockade.
The Israelis are bound to loose trade and tourism over this and to continue to have dodge questions and answer them in ways that are going to be
increasingly uncomfortable for them.
Faced with such a public relations nightmare the good news is, nothing short of an appology and some real attempt to modify or lift the blockade is
going to help them.
Everything counter to that is just going to hurt their own relations and prosperity in the long run, and increasingly so in the short run.
What's the old saying, give someone enough rope?
