Israel, the Gaza Strip and America's Role in the Middle East

Hosted by

Israel is taking a hard line on both its blockade of Gaza and its assault on a so-called "humanitarian" mission at sea. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, we get the latest on Monday's incident and the pros and cons of the blockade. Also, the state legislature is poised to ban plastic grocery bags, and the US Supreme Court says suspects will have to speak up to maintain their right to be silent.
