    After the last episode where 9 activists died of gunshot wounds and some score were wounded, it seems strange that any responsible country or port authority would allow civilians, to risk themselves to an extremely hostile Israeli Navy, that has taken upon itself to blockade Gaza Port against the influx of foreigners and weapons. Apparently, the tide has now turned, for Israel has decided, correctly, in allowing most goods to flow freely into Gaza. Therefore, one must consider that the above intention by said blockade runners is no more than another cheap and rather dangerous publicity campaign that will no doubt cause another diplomatic furor, showing total disregard for the actual progress by all parties concerned. Using women or children is standard fare by all terrorist groups, using nuns, is a rather Machiavellian stunt, then again, we all know who is behind said venture.! Good day.
