Way to go, Israel. You fucked up again!!!

There have been yet more mindless killings in this terrible conflict as Israeli forces stormed a Gaza aid ship last night. More than 10 people were murdered (I prefer the word 'murdered' to 'killed' in this instance) after Israeli commandos stormed a convoy of ships carrying aid to the Gaza Strip. Apparently, armed forces boarded the largest vessel clashing with some of the 500 people on board. This all took place about 40 miles (64 km) out to sea, in international waters. Israel says its soldiers were shot at and attacked with weapons (yeah, right!); the activists say Israeli troops came on board shooting (which sounds closer to the truth). Naturally, there has been widespread condemnation of the violence, while the European Union has called for an inquiry to establish what happened. Isn't it about time that Israel was stopped? Why does the world turn a blind eye to these atrocities? Okay, so certain Palestinian activists are not exactly the epitome of innocence. But how would you react if someone forced their way into your house and took over your home for over half a century?! What if the allies had lost the second world war and the Nazis had occupied Britain? Think about that for a while.

Why do humans feel the constant need to hurt, kill and destroy? What a stupid fucking species we are!
