  1. The demonstrators in Selma didn’t make it across the bridge either, but the effect was far greater than if they had made it. One of the points of a non-violent demonstration is to develop the situation until the opposition rises up to publicly show their fundamental violence and injustice.

  2. I know nothing about “laws of the sea” or how leaving a port is handled. It’s looking as if once a vessel is in a port it can be prevented at the will of the controlling powers to never, ever leave?

    If someone in NYC is tied up at a dock on, say, the Hudson, does that boat need some kind of permission to leave?

    I somehow imagine that someone of the wealth of, say, Onassis is not subject to such need for “permission.”

    But, Susie, you’ve nailed what’s going on: The various sovereign Powers That Be Biggest and Allied with Biggest are solidly allied to stop any embarrassment to Netanyahoo.

    Wow. Shows what being the regional bully/designated bastion of democracy gets you nowadays. He’s a right bastard but he’s OUR right bastard, eh?
