Israel kills activists in international waters

Israel shows once again that it is run by a bunch of criminals who have no regard for the lives of Palestinians and their supporters.

A group of peace activists were bringing humanitarian aid to the Occupied Territories when they were attacked by members of the Israeli military.  At least 10 activists were killed, an unknown number of others were hurt and all were detained.  But Israel is so far refusing to release the names or details of those killed, injured or detained.

And the US continues to support Israel, no matter what they do.
