Irony Abroad In Israel

It's no so long since a poor suffering people found themselves on the high seas, desperately trying to reach Palestine, and being stopped, perfectly legitimately, on those high seas, by the naval forces of a legitimate state which wanted to ensure that they would commit no mischief if allowed to proceed, and which, on finding that mischief was intended, boarded their ships and sent them back.

One such episode ended up giving its title to a film: Exodus; though the story of the ship is as interesting.

Irony: always there somewhere if people who know their rights try to stand on them, especially if their rights might impinge on someone else's as well.
