While I am an ardent supporter of the State of Israel, I myself question the legality of what Israel did in Interntational waters. There is no doubt that Israel was set up to be the bad guy here... I just wish they had let the flotilla enter Israeli teritory before forcible boarding the boat. If that had happened, no one could blame Israel for the actions they took. Whats not being stated is that... in spite of everything that took place, Israel escorted 5 boats to a predetermined port, unloaded the coargo & will see to it that the aid reaches the civilian population in Gaza.
