    Palestinian propagandists , bolstered by gullible do gooders are trying to maximize the impact of the flotilla, Israel is try to minimize it. It could be th dirty tricks ar perpetuated by either or both sides, aut they all miss the point. The resolution of the Arabi Israeli conflict will only come thru direct negotiating, which both sides have avoided with pitfalls, double talk, and stonewalling because they prefer to hold on to extremeist ideals instead of effect peace and comprimise. Yup, Israel shouldn't have a blockage, but neither should Hamas hold shallit, smuggle in and fire rockets. If delivering goods to the Gazans was the real goal, Israel has long agreed to let ships unload in Ashdod for inspection and transhipment. But the Flottila mob isn't interested in that. They want porpaganda points. So, its the same old story, both sidses compoudn the folly and avoid doing what needs to be done: sitting down and negotiating without preconditions. Yup, lift the blockade and free shallit for starters.
