The Media’s Coverage of the Flotilla Raid Makes Me Want to Wreck My Face with a Hammer


Last night, Jon Stewart, who I view as honorable, joined the chorus of people criticizing the justified-as-much-as-something-can-be-justified raid by the Israelis on the flotilla carrying “aid” to Gaza, the home of Hamas.
