    The world has discovered the Gaza Blockade. Previous peacefully diverted 'relief' ships did not capture the world's attention. Only when Netanyahu decided to stage a heavily armed commando raid on the Turkish flotilla did the world start paying attention. Now all those intent upon ending the Gaza blockade need do is keep sending ships. In a typically mindless attempt to end opposition with violence, Netanyahu has rendered the Gaza blockade impossible to maintain. The only way Israel can solve the situation is to end the punitive blockade so that it may maintain the ability to block weapons and munitions. It is most unfortunate that Israel is incapable of realizing exactly who has been systematically de-legitimizing the occupation and itself. It is Israel that is it's own worst enemy in the battle for world public opinion. Obsessed with inflicting suffering upon all Gazans to punish them for being dominated by Hamas, Israel has allowed it's frustration, fear and hatred to rule it's actions, and thus discredit it. Time to decide whether it is more important to deny Gazan's cumin and chickens, than appear a sane and decent nation.
