    Israel should act as follows. 1)Publicize announcement of ALL GOODS into Gaza except weapons.,and have a 3rd party to mediate in this on land. 2) Announce that ANYTHING citizens of Gaza need may be publicizes by mutual intermediary. 3)Stop telling the world that they dont need anything by showing a few prosperous areas,in spite of possibility of Hamas or others blocking suppy to ordinary citizens. 4)State categorically ,that,having agreed to lift blockade EXCEPT FOR WEAPONS,there will in future bve NO NEED for ships to try to reach Gaza,however any that try will then be recognized by Isarael and the world for what they truly are,that is political provocation,and that Israel cannot therefore guarantee the safety of those embarking on such missions,or be responsible for their safety. If the blockade was meant to wear down Gazan citizens in order that they might overthrow Hamas,it clearly has not worked.In fact who knows how many hardliners were created in the attempt..Back off quietly please.Send details to all interested embassies etc.
