" Israel once bombed a US navy ship and tried to blame it on Egypt. Imagine if Muslims had done so and what would happen but this "good" friend can get away with it."
-- Personally, I think all of the governments of the Mid-East should be removed from Egypt and Israel to Iraq and Iran, with the separation of religion and state, with rights and protections for the religious and minorities, and into a federated united states of the Mid-East. Gush Shalom's Uri Avnery came up with this idea back in the 1960s. I don't see why it couldn't work, but I have a hunch why it will never be implemented.
As far as the US navy ship being attacked, I think you're referring to the USS Liberty. If so, check out this film:
USS Liberty Dead in the Water
On June 8, 1967, US Navy intelligence ship USS Liberty was suddenly and brutally attacked on the high seas in international waters by the air and naval forces of Israel. The Israeli forces attacked with full knowledge that this was an American ship and lied about it. Survivors have been forbidden for 40 years to tell their story under oath to the American public. This USS Liberty Memorial web site tells their story and is dedicated to the memory of the 34 brave men who died.
After surveilling USS Liberty for more than nine hours with almost hourly aircraft over flights and radar tracking, the air and naval forces of Israel attacked our ship in international waters without warning. USS Liberty was identified as a US naval ship nine hours before the attack by Israeli reconnaissance aircraft and continuously tracked by Israeli radar and aircraft thereafter. Sailing in international waters at less than five knots, with no offensive armament, our ship was not a military threat to anyone.
The Israeli forces attacked without warning and without attempting to contact us. Thirty four Americans were killed in the attack and another 174 were wounded. The ship, a $40 Million Dollar state of the art signals intelligence platform, was later declared unsalvageable and sold for scrap.
