Robert Fisk: The world must see through Israel's lies

Robert Fisk

I HAVE, of course, been outraged at armed men boarding ships in international waters, killing passengers on board who attempt to resist and then forcing their ship to the hijackers' home port.

I am, of course, talking about the Somali pirates who are preying on Western ships in the Indian Ocean. How dare those terrorists dare to touch our unarmed vessels on the high seas? And how right we are to have our warships there to prevent such terrorist acts?

But whoops! At least the Israelis have not demanded ransom. They just want to get journalists to win the propaganda war for them. Scarcely had the week begun when Israelis warrior 'commandos' stormed a Turkish boat bringing aid to Gaza and shot nine of the passengers dead.
