There was no doubt that Israel was going to stop the flotilla from reaching Gaza. The problem is in the way the raid was conducted, in International waters, the excessive force used, and the number of civilian casualties, and total disregard to the flag these ships had. It was either that the operation took the wrong turn, and the outcome was not as intended, or someone within the Israeli government intentionally is working on damaging the image of Israel, or damaging the Turkish Israeli ties. Israeli actions are becoming more self-defeating American-style. I honestly wonder if all Israeli ministers work for Israel or another state?
