"Israel agreed to deliver the aid after it forcibly blocked the flotilla's passage to Gaza on Monday, in an assault by naval commandos that ended in the deaths of nine pro-Palestinian activists.
"But construction materials, which Israel claims could be seized by militants for use in making weapons and building underground bunkers, were excluded."
This is one of the reasons that the Freedom Flotilla is right to want to deliver the goods directly to the Gazans.
To answer your question, that's the big deal here, Joe Biden. Israel has no right to be blocking Gaza.
Israel is built on stolen land obtained via lies, terrorism, and wars of aggression started by Israel. That's more of the big deal, Joe Biden. Grow up, Joe. Zionism is delusional. Quit licking the banksters' hands, and tell your president-boss to knock it off too.
