This is really big!
Is going to have ramifications we can only guess at?
A civilian naval flotilla, purportedly carrying much needed supplies, sailing from Turkey to the Gaza Strip, intercepted on the high seas by Israeli naval commandos, numbers dead, the flotilla not able to breach the Israeli naval blockade of Gaza, ships and crews now imprisoned.

"At Least 10 Killed as Israel Storms Aid Flotilla"
"Israeli Military Claims Commandos Encountered Armed Activists Who Had Planned to Attack Troops; Many Injured"
"Israeli commandos on Monday stormed six ships carrying hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists on an aid mission to the blockaded Gaza Strip, killing at least 10 people and wounding dozens after encountering unexpected resistance as the forces boarded the vessels."
Of course, even from the very beginning of Israel, from over sixty years ago now, there have been events [affairs] of this nature. Ships, carrying refugees or war munitions, intercepted on the high seas prior to arriving in what was at the time British Mandated Palestine, confrontation, conflict, lives lost.
The Prime Minister of Israel has even called off talks with President Obama in response to the "crisis" that has now developed.
This is indeed serious and bad serious!!
