Israel's attack on the unarmed flotilla last weekend could be a "Kent State moment." When white middle-class students were gunned down on a college campus, it woke up a whole new segment of American society to police killings of minority students. Similarly, while the Israeli military has been killing Arab civilians for years, now that they have attacked European and American peace activists it has created a whole new dynamic.
The nonviolent activists aboard the flotilla hoping to break the blockade of Gaza were not terrorists, and their provoking of confrontation follows in a long tradition of peace and justice activism.
