    The only proof-positive is the response to the same provocations, Johnny. The ship had announced its original intention of Israelis delivering the goods, if they wish so. Now as they actually approach, they are fully blant on goping to Gaza. Which should tell you right away the original verbage was nothing more than PR stunt to heighten anti-Israeli emotions and percetion, if the takeover does take affect. They have sewed the peaceful intent into people`s minds, when in actuality they will force the forceful takeover and the negative PR on Israel from the get go. Thus negating any positive moves on the part of Israel or Israeli basic `must` in this whole concept, drawning it in overall negativism & criticism I do not have to tell you why is this a simple PR / testing the `waters` / attempt at humiliating for Israel breakage of the blockade ploy. However, for an oridnary simpleton it should be noted at least such fact that humanitarian aid on this ship equals to 1 gazillions of humanitarian aid flowin into Gaza from Israel. In many instances sabotaged by Hamas for the same PR ploy.
