Gaza is under Israeli and Egyptian blockade because the terrorist org. hamas with its declared intention to destroy Israel also shot thousands of missiles at Israel to achieve the goal. Israel (like the US against Russia and others) declared that no material will enter Gaza which would enhance Hamas ability to further its goals. Therefore those materials need be checked beforehand. If a ship declares it will violate the blockade, law allows Israel to preempt the search outside the national waters of Israel. the fact that these so called peaceful humanists loaded the ship with butcher knives and axes proves with the films that their purpose was violence and not humanitarian. they reaped what they sowed. the sorry part is that Hamas wanted as many dead boat people as possible for the PR victory. they could care less about the lives of these European dupes.
