“Israel lost at sea” (Haaretz)

The Israeli press is divided this morning over yesterday’s botched assault on a flotilla carrying aid to the Gaza Strip. Some defend the IDF’s actions while others say it calls Israel’s entire strategy in Gaza into question. “The siege is becoming Israel’s Vietnam,” says Bradley Burnston in the left-leaning daily Ha’aretz. We also look at analysis in the Turkish, Lebanese, Arabic, British and American press. TUESDAY, 1st JUNE 2010

Jerusalem Post (Israel): “From now on it gets harder,” Gil Hofmann
 
Jerusalem Post(Israel): “Questions abound over planning of sea op”
 
Haaretz (Israel): “A Special Place in Hell/ The Second Gaza War: Israel Lost at Sea” (Bradley Burnston)
