Why All the Lies About Israel?

Let me see if I have this straight.

Hamas runs Gaza. Hamas declared open war against Israel two years ago. Israel closely controls material going into Gaza to keep out arms sent there by Syria and Iran, among them the many rockets that rain down upon the innocent people of Israel daily.

Hamas claims that there's no aid reaching the people thanks to the Israeli government (a falsity), so a flotilla is organized by the same terrorist group that helped with the Millennium bomb plot at LAX airport. They claim they're on a humanitarian mission, however, when they are told to comply with IDF commands to observe the naval blockade against Gaza, their ship is boarded where the "humanitarians" proceed to fight the IDF forces with weapons that they just happen to have aboard. These weapons include knives, metal rods, and firebombs.

Israel, in taking all the legal steps to keep her enemies disarmed and her borders safe, is roundly condemned by the UN and other countries in the Middle East who are openly hostile to Israel, if they recognizer her at all. The flotilla's organizers as much as declared that their intentions were not humanitarian, but meant to break the blockade.

So, Israel defends herself against her sworn enemies and is accused of a "massacre" when a shipful of terrorists attempts to invade her shores.

There's something backwards about all this...
