Some of Israel's supporters claim that flotilla's are intended to provoke confrontation. This is almost correct. The flotilla's are meant to change the political situation. The aid transported is not significant. The issue of allowing access to the open air prison of Gaza is the main issue. Two other issues are also important. The flotilla's focus world attention on Israel and Israel's policies against the Palestinians. This is also a no win issue for Israel. The third issue is Israel's resopnse to the flotilla. There is a better than even chance that Israel will react in some insane manner which can eclipse all the other issues combined. Israel is violently hostile to criticism and protest. Many people have paid with their lives to show the world the true face of Israel. The flotilla riders should be commended for taking such risks for the sake of freedom and justice.
