Never have Israel's tactics been more vulgar -- or more cowardly. And the message they send is clear enough. If obviously nonviolent, humanitarian activism is met with lies, sabotage and a vile smear campaign, neither the methods nor the motives of the activists can be the cause. Israel simply can't tolerate truth-telling about Gaza. The flotilla has proved that much, at least. And Israel's government has only itself to blame.
