    Israsel is not afraid of IHH - it is afraid of weapons and infrastructure for iranian - led terrorism to the Hamas under the wrong label of humanitarian aid. If the cargo is controlled in presence of NEUTRAL international observers for example in the nearby port of ashdod there should be no problem for real humanitarian aid to be sent to Ghaza. The real problem is, that intention behind the fleet is NOT to give humanitarian aid to the people of ghaza who are starving under the totalitarion HAMAS - regime. The real intention is to provoke a military reaction by the israel navy and to blame israel of being the malefactor of the region. If for example greece would support the PKK or a militant armenian group fighting for justice and the end of oppression in turkey with maybe weapons, explosives and reloading - equipment for cartridges the Türkiye Cumhuriyeti would not tolerate this and would do everything to search or stop a "convoy of peace and aid" that is suspectet to bring hundreds of weapons to the violent insurgents. So - blaming israel as malfactor is a bigot. Blaming only the palestineans as malfactor would be - i have to admit - also bigot. But with continuous provocation and violence against israel the population within israel will ever tend to vote for relatively nationalist partys and not for partys interested in a righteous peace...
