Obviously one of the main purposes of this little naval enterprise is to make Israel lose face. I think that battle is already lost by Israel and that they, like any other sovereign nation, is entitled to enforce their own borders in any way they can. One can hope that this happens without anyone losing their lives, but many of the activists seem fully intent on making trouble in every way shape and form. Exciting as it may be, let's just hope for a swift and peaceful solution, naive as it may be.
