A small collection of links to interesting articles concerning the latest catastrophic acts of the “only democracy in the Middle East” on may 30.

There is a comprehensive website dedicated to the flotilla: The Gaza Flotilla Archive.

And listen to a short eye-witness account by Dutch anthropologist Anne de Jong
