Maybe if a dozen or so ships attempted to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza, that would work. At least, so thinks a coalition of anti-Israeli groups, including the well-financed Turkish Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) and something called the Free Gaza Movement.
The Israelis believe that they can deal with this threat, even if they have to intercept the ships well out to sea.
In any case, it is hard to make a souffle rise twice, and the public relations tricks of the first flotilla last May 31 probably will be met by more adroit Israeli prevention techniques. It bears repeating to anyone who will listen, that Gaza is not destitute, nor deprived of medical care and foodstuffs. Any of these, once inspected by Israeli officials on land, can enter Gaza. The problem is military equipment.
Stratfor is reporting that Iran is busy funding still more rockets and other weapons to Hamas and Hezbollah. You have to deny this reality to persist in demanding that Israel drop its blockade.
Fortunately, like previous efforts to launch a new flotilla, this new one is more in the constant planning stage than in imminent likelihood of watery launch. Since some of the organizers are anti-Israeli Jews, and much of the support is from anti-Israeli Islamists, the situation should make for interesting late night scheming.
Pardon my cynicism, but I suspect that on such evenings various sets of spies mainly will wind up talking to one another. Who would you trust in such an operation?
