The world reaction to Israel is sharp and negative-I never would have expected it!
Here is a group entering a closed military area,warned not to come, and when Israeli troops very lightly armed go to do their duty,are viciously attacked with knives, metal bars and guns.
Civil disobedience is not an unusuual occurrence.However the participants know you are expected to lay down,and go peacefully albeit with protest .It is obvious that one ship was prepared for violence and mayhem.
The attempt to bring supplies into Gaza by this route, when Israel promised them to transfer their supplies by land after checking for contraband was pure anti-Israel political drama.
Of course they have won the temporary PR battle,however Israel and the IDF must be commended for their patience and fortitude.
