The Guardian today carries a comment piece by the Arab writer Ahdaf Soueif about Israel’s killing of volunteer aid workers on the flotilla bound for Gaza.
The Independent carries a piece by its veteran reporter Robert Fisk entitled ‘Western leaders are too cowardly to help save lives.’
‘Where were our politicians yesterday? … Where was Mr Cameron? Where was Mr Clegg?

Indeed. Do read both articles in full..
No comment pieces have appeared in the Times or the Daily Telegraph, however.
