|Did Israel violate international law in boarding the ships? Yes, it probably did. Israel justifies the boarding of the ships in international waters basically as an act of self defence. It is Israel's argument that the naval blockade of Gaza is needed to prevent Hamas in Gaza from attacking Israel. The issue isn't whether the passengers were violent, but whether Israel should have boarded the ships in this way at all.'|
