Israel has shown that all that needs to be done in order to make Israel look bad is to give Israel the opportunity to make a bad decision. Israel always comes through. In the past, America covered for Israels bad judgment, but these days the interested audience is much larger than before and the internet bypasses the traditional media outlets, which are subject to various restrictions and pressures. Every flotilla will be covered via the internet and every flotilla will be an opportunity for Israel to make a bad decision. It will be a long, ugly summer for Israel.
