For the life, of me I can not understand why the Israelis released ALL the ship passangers, why not have them interogated thoroughly and prosecute those involved in the attack of the solsiers?

We are infuriated by the terrible anti-israeli bias in the media, particularly the broadcast media - the BBC is a particularly bad example - why can't these blind fools see that Israel is an oasis of democracy in a sea of despotism and hate and needs our support in its fight to survive?. We admire Israel and what it has achieved - long may it continue.

ל כִּי-בְךָ, אָרֻץ גְּדוּד; וּבֵאלֹהַי, אֲדַלֶּג-שׁוּר. הָאֵל, תָּמִים דַּרְכּוֹ:
אִמְרַת-יְהוָה צְרוּפָה; מָגֵן הוּא, לְכֹל הַחֹסִים בּוֹ. מ וַתְּאַזְּרֵנִי חַיִל, לַמִּלְחָמָה; תַּכְרִיעַ קָמַי תַּחְתָּי. מא וְאֹיְבַי, נָתַתָּה לִּי עֹרֶף; וּמְשַׂנְאַי, אַצְמִיתֵם.

My neighbor and I had been just debating this particular topic, he's usually looking for to prove me incorrect. Your view on that is nice and precisely how I truly feel.
