Shot in the Head, Four Times

A U.S. citizen who lived in Turkey is among the nine people killed when Israeli commandos stormed a Turkish aid ship heading for the Gaza Strip, officials said today. The victim was identified as Furkan Dogan, 19, a Turkish-American. A forensic report said he was shot at close range, with four bullets in his head and one in his chest, according to the Anatolian news agency.
Just a reminder that if Iran/Syria/Just about any country but Israel had shot an American citizen in the head four times, we would on the verge of declaring war right now.

Israel's attack on the flotilla was so over the top aggressive/stupid/reckless that it might be beyond AIPAC's power to neutralize the response. A really remarkable feat when you think about it, but if your entire foreign policy is based upon doing whatever the fuck you want at all times with zero consequences, I guess this type of thing isn't unexpected.
