Well, because you know, while you may call the Israelis butchers and murderers, you know you risk very little with your flotilla stunt... do that with the Syrians and well... either something bad happens before you reach the shore, or nothing happens and you know even worse lies ahead, propaganda stunts are one thing, but putting your life on the line for a cause is another entirely.

As bashing Bashar has already proved willing to blast on sight anything coming from Turkey without being announced, it's better not to make a second try just to be sure about.

You guys are all skeptics, this flotilla below has already set sail no ETA though.

So hands up which country considers a flotilla of plastic ducks as the ultimate insult to Islam from the West?

Israel doesn't just kill 5 civilians though, Knight, it's usually numbers a lot more than that (2K6 war for example was 10:1 Lebanese/Palestinian casualties relative to Israel's). Both sides seem to have something of a casual disregard for civilian losses, despite the 'official' line. Whether it's the specific targeting of Israeli civilians by suicide bomber or rockets (the 'If you're not with us, you must be against us' stance) or the killing of non-Israeli civilians via airstrikes for example (the 'hey, it's war, sh*t happens' approach), two wrongs don't make a right. Floating a protest flotilla into Israeli waters when you know it's going to illicit an armed response is just as irresponsible as landing commandos on said flotilla. Is anyone really surprised both sides decided to punch on and people were killed? Eventually the world will get sick of this bullsh*t and land on both parties heavily (to be honest, I'm surprised we're still putting up with it), but not while each side receives unquestioning support from larger backers with deep pockets and uncompromising ideology.

...and before I begin to sound too cynical tonight, have a squiz at this:

 

Here I thought bad things were beginning to entrench themselves in Libya and something like this happens...

...It's good to have one's faith in humanity restored somewhat, even if only a little.
