Still Making Waves in Berlin and Jerusalem
Two interesting news items in the wake of the Flotilla to Gaza in the end of May:
1) In a race to be the first to point the finger of blame, the IDF is expected to dump the responsibility for the whole mess on the navy in a report presented to the chief of staff Ashkenazi and the minister of defense Barak today. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court gave the government’s committee that will look into the issue sharper teeth.
2) The German minster of the interior, Thomas de Maizière, banned the IHH from working in Germany. IHH is the Turkish organization that stood behind the Flotilla, and it’s outlawed in Germany due to its funding of, and cooperation with, the Palestinian terror organization Hamas.
