Today from the Iceland Review

I went to the Iceland Review Online in the hopes of finding another light story about sheep or chickens and found this:
Iceland Condemns Israeli Raid on Gaza Convoy

Icelandic Minister for Foreign Affairs Össur Skarphédinsson released a statement yesterday condemning the Israeli attack on ships carrying aid supplies to the Gaza Strip. He supports the demand of the EU and the UN that the raid be investigated in detail.

Furthermore, the Icelandic government demands that Israel lift their siege in Gaza immediately. “It is a despicable crime,” Skarphédinsson told Fréttabladid of the attack on the convoy. “People who couldn’t defend themselves were attacked with weapons.”

Minister of Finance Steingrímur J. Sigfússon said yesterday’s events must prompt the international community to “no longer look away as it has done for far too long in the matters of Israel. This is bound to lead to a turning point in relations with Israel. This is just too shocking.”
