Hey, Israel!!! What the fuck are you playing at?

As South Korean students stage a protest in front of the Israel Embassy in Seoul on Saturday, Israel seems determined to continue pissing off the rest of the world.

Amid mounting international pressure to lift the blockade since Monday's deadly confrontation aboard a Turkish aid vessel headed for Gaza in which 10 people were murdered, Israeli forces once again seized a Gaza-bound aid vessel today, but this time without meeting resistance.

Israel is stubbornly (and quite foolishly) standing by the embargo, which, it says, is needed to prevent the Islamic militant group from getting weapons. Even the Obama administration has called the current restrictions "unsustainable."

Israel ... you need to back off on this one. The world has no sympathy for you. It's time for ordinary Israeli citizens to stand up and say enough is enough. It's time for you to do the right thing.
