Flotilla Assault Spurs Crisis
If they had just chosen a better name for the ship. I seem to recall that the "Exodus" had a more than salutary effect early in the history of Israel, turning public opinion and revitalising morale in the Irgun, Haganah and the Stern Gang.
    Still, it will be interesting to see how the legal situation plays out. Is the forcible boarding of a NATO-flagged ship in international waters and act of piracy or an act of war?   What about the interning of NATO citizens, holding them incommunicado?
