    This is really crazy. Egypt opened its border to Gaza. Why not approach the coast and then split with one part of the flotilla sailing to Ashdod and another part sailing to El Arish. And maybe releasing Gilad Shalit at the Rafah terminal in exchange. This would be a grand sign of good will and humanity. And by "surrounding" or "avoiding" the Gaza strip by sailing to Ashdod and El Arish it would be still a "demonstration" against a blockade and also "fooling" the IDF because they are "left behind" in-between "protecting" their blockade. Goods would travel from both sides into Gaza (Israel and Egypt) and the prisoner would be released on the "open border" in Rafah (instead Ashdod). Activists could create a huge media spectacle out of it to "market" this to the world as a sign of humanity and good will. "Breaking the Barrier" by force does not help anyone. Just my opinion. Hopefully everyone will be careful, whatever happens.
