Good post-flotilla coverage from German TV

In a report called, "Questionable Peace Mission," German broadcaster Südwestrundfunk interviews members of the left-wing German political party, Die Linke, who were on the Mavi Marmara. They ask how the flotillistas felt to be "fellow-travelers" with right-wing, violent Islamists. The short answer is, "not interested in thinking about it."
