Let the Flotilla go - to Ashdod harbor - inspect the cargo, then transport it by trucks to Gaza. If the organizers of the flotilla have nothing to hide this should prove satisfactory to both parties. As far as the government equating the arrival of the flotilla with an attack by an armed naval fleet - this analogy is not so far off its mark, since this is no more than a media event which is tantamount to an attack (or war) via propaganda - especially since the organizers are probably fervently hoping for yet another military intervention and a confrontation with the IDF which would then increase global outrage against Israel and summon up more sympathy for the inhabitants of Gaza which would play directly into Hamas' hands. Goal accomplished - without a shot having been fired.... This is the new, modern warfare - attack by media manipulation.
