Ashamed of My Country

Every true Israeli patriot ought to do something very un-Israeli today: lower his head or hers, and apologize very humbly to the dead and injured of the "Free Gaza Movement" flotilla, to their families, to the Turks, to the international community.

This is the response they seem to have... unbelievable

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson Ygal Palmor said that his country dismissed on Thursday a UN decision to set up a probe of the deadly raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla, saying the Human Rights Council that adopted the resolution had no moral authority.

Fania Oz-Salzberger says she is ashamed of her country…

I too am ashamed of my country…
The US proclaims that we believe in justice and freedom…
But… instead… we support injustice and occupation…
The Obama administration had its chance to show what we support…
Instead we softened the UN message against Israel…
Vice President Biden wants an impartial “Israeli" investigation…
The flotilla was in INTERNATIONAL WATERS…
JOE… it has been 43 YEARS…

I am losing my belief and hope for the Obama administration…
Where is the change from the past?
Obama and Biden… stop playing politics…
Change in this case means a Palestinian State…
Not a continued blockade and investigations…

I too am ashamed of my country...
I may not vote for Obama again…

When has Israel apologized? For anything. Peace and Freedom are the only way. That is not being naive it is being realistic. What Israel and Jews around the world are doing (and have been for 65 years or so) is ignorant.
I'm proud to be a Jew I just don't support Israel!
