“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

Articles in today’s international press review:
 
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)
 
Zaman (Turkey): “The whole world takes a stand”
 
Today’s Zaman (Turkey): “Turkish Israel relations will never be the same”
 
L’Orient le Jour (Lebanon): “Beiruit ready to show solidarity with Turkey after Israeli attack against ‘Freedom Flotilla’”
 
Gulf News (United Arab Emirates): “Freedom Attacked”
 
The Guardian (UK): “Israel accused of state terrorism”
