Israel’s ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, has compared the Gaza flotilla attack with America’s fight against Nazi Germany in the Second World War.
In an interview with Fox News , he described the operation, in which nine people died, as “perfectly legal, perfectly humane – and very responsible”.
He defending the attack in open waters, saying: “Israel acted in accord with international law. Any state has the right to protect itself, certainly from a terrorist threat such as Hamas, including on the open seas.
“The US acted under similar international law when it fought the Germans and the Japanese in World War Two.”
