"Completely Unacceptable," Great Britain's Condemnation of Israel
Great Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron's words are no great surprise. The anti-Israeli (Zionist/Jewish) policies of Great Britain are long-standing. Cameron's no different from his predecessors.
Israel does permit humanitarian goods and people to cross in and out of Gaza. But because of the terrorist and rocket attacks from Gaza on Israel, Israel has no choice other than inspect the goods first. That's what all countries do. Israel didn't "attack" the Gaza flotilla; it just attempted to inspect the goods, but the soldiers were surprised/attacked by violent mercenaries. In self-defense the Israelis had to kill some of the mercenaries. It's that simple, but David Cameron isn't interested in the truth.
