    Like all bullies, Israel's worst nightmare is people peacefully standing up to them. Since the massacre of Cast Lead ONE Israeli has been killed by a rocket fired from Gaza, while ONE OTHER Israeli has been held prisoner. In return Israel's blokade has resulted in a situation in which 17.5% of the children of Gaza are malnourished - that's HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of children. Israel bans biscuits, pasta, crayons - and then tells the world that its blockade is not collective punishment! The flotillas cannot ever carry anything but a minute fraction of the supplies the people of Gaza need. But their greater purpose is to stand up to Israeli brutality and draw the world's attention to what Israel is doing to Gaza. They do this in the spirit of the best of humanity.
