that it would be in the Israeli government's best interest it let it through. Realistically there's no way Israel can come off well out of this but it can make the best of what could become a terrible situation. Arresting humanitarian aid workers will not endear Israel to the rest of the world and considering how alot of the world perceives it at the moment it needs the brownie points. Politically it's the best move. Israel cannot look good in this situation. If it lets them through Gaza's humanitarian crisis is once again plastered all over the internet but at least it let the people of Gaza get help. If it doesn't let them through you've got the humanitarian crisis plastered all over the internet ontop of the IDF arressting peaceful teenagers trying to get crayons and cement to a desperate population. Netanyahu could make the right the decision here if he's savy but he hasn't shown much saviness in the past so i'm expecting a fiasco. And i will be the first to shout about it either way. It's sad that i already know the Israeli government is going to mess this one up. Here's to hoping and some humanity from the Israeli government.
