Does it strike anyone else as beyond coincidence that within hours of Israel’s commando raid on a flotilla of ships bound for Gaza — ships supposedly containing “humanitarian supplies,” and left-wing “peace activists” — that demonstrations broke out in Europe and outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington? And how about the U.N. Security Council, which often acts in slow motion, except when it has the opportunity to criticize Israel. It sprang into action on Memorial Day to listen to haters of the Jewish state denounce Israel as if it already knew who was to blame for the nine civilian deaths and the many wounded. The Council has now called for an “impartial” and “transparent” investigation.
