18. By the way they're still holding ALL of the 600-700 kidnapped flotilla victims _incommunicado_
Unless something's changed in the last hour, which I don't think it has. There were a number of legislators (German, IIRC), at least on Nobel laureate, Holocaust survivor and many other notable authors, political figures and intellectuals among those abducted by the Israeli military.

During the emergency UN Security Council session requests- no, actually demands from the near-universally outraged delegates included consular access for all those kidnapped.

I don't think it's been granted yet.

Troubling food for thought. I feel for the families of the dead, dying, injured and imprisoned who have no idea what the status of their loved-one, family member, legislator, colleague or friend is.
