    Why would a peacful mission be aremd? There are over 1.5 million people living in Gaza. Let's be honest do you think 6 boats with food would really help them? It's like giving 20 dollars to a homeless guy on one day instead of thinking of the bigger picture and try to get him off the street in developping a long-term strategy. Therefore I think the activist on the boat knew that it was more important to get the attention of the media that international pressure would start on Israel to stopp it's blockade on Gaza. So it is not about death or life to arrive in Gaza with the food. Why when the Israeli soldiers jumped on the boat didn't the activist just give up? they knew that Israel would pass in the media as the bad guy anyway and therefore they would have reached their goal. But instead they were violent, carrying big knifes with them and attacking the soldiers. Peacful activists? Really who are they kidding? Have you ever heard of humanitarian aid who said we gonna stab anyone coming in our way?To the bad sitatuion in Gaza the European Union and the United States also contributed alot in stopping funding for example. But once again all the attention and hate goes against Israel because it fits in people's framework and won't challenge their thinking. So before starting again another ship mission think that there are always two sides to every story. So please don't call yourselves peacful activists if you are aremd and attacking other people physically!
