Four days later, the Senate Majority Leader responds to Israel’s deadly raid on the Mavi Marmara, a Turkish-flagged ship shuttling aid to Gaza.
“Israel is one of our strongest and most important allies,” Reid said in a short statement, “and the United States stands firmly with Israel at this critical time.”
I deeply regret the loss of life in the flotilla incident, including the death of an American citizen.
Israel has an obligation to protect its citizens and therefore has a clear right under international law to prevent weapons from getting in the hands of terrorists determined to target them. Israel indicated it was willing to put in place a process to ensure that legitimate humanitarian relief reached Gaza. Unfortunately this offer was rejected.
Israel has pledged to carry out a transparent and thorough investigation of this incident, and I look forward to its findings.
As does the rest of the world.
