Now, "forceful" is a strong word. Considering the aid ships routeing papers have it scheduled to dock in port at Al Arish, Egypt,.It seems Israel
wants to lead other flotillas to believe this aid ship changed course as a result of this threat.
I think it is time for the "blockade breakers" to abandon their efforts to go to gaza. Now that Israel has eased the blockade with regard to
products allowed it seems any future aid ships will be an un necessary provacation.
If however an aid ship does try to run the blockade force is NOT the answer. Israel can easily board by agreement to search the ship for weapons and
if none are found allow the ship to proceed to Gaza.
Israels refusal to allow any ship into Gaza port makes no sense to me. I know many of our posters will cite the "thousands" of rockets fired at
Israel, etc. But everyone should remember Israel and Hamas were enjoying a relatively calm cease fire until Israel broke it and refused to renew it
opting instead for "Cast Lead". I wonder why that was?
