Lawfare Defeats Gaza Flotilla

Bury ’em in red tape: The left has used that tactic for decades to tie up business expansion, road building, anything and everything. Now, Israelis have turned lawfare into a weapon against terrorists and their useful idiots.

Hoping to avoid a repeat performance by suicidal activists, the Israelis used lawsuits to halt this year’s blockade runners. A group of Israeli activist lawyers worked with the Israeli government to keep the blockade runners tied up with red tape. Turns out the blockade runners thought, because they were on the side of all that’s good, they could skimp on paperwork and ship safety regulations. Moreover, the blockade runners were going to the aid of a place (Gaza) run by a group (Hamas) that was officially recognized as international terrorists. This provided even more openings for the Israeli lawyers. Nine of the ten blockade runner boats eventually gave up, and the operation [w]as officially a failure. This proved that lawfare works both ways.

Nice.
