A different kind of peace dividend

I remarked here that I thought the attack on the aid flotilla might be a turning point after which Israeli hasbara would lose all credibility, and certainly the amount of Israeli government fakery that they've been forced to apologise for has been gratifying. But there may be other ways in which the peace activists turn out not to have died in vain. It seems that a by-product of Turkey's fury at Israel's killing of its citizens may be an end to Israel's continual blocking (via AIPAC) of any attempt to have the US Congress discuss the Turkish genocide of Armenians last century.

If it's true, that's excellent news. Of course, any war criminals pursued by the USA will soon be able to flee to safety in Britain.
