I think it is great. Sure, we want more but the efforts of these people is truly great. We are moving into a time when it is up to people power. People must act; forget the corrupt governments.

I know this is a very insignificant effort on their part, but at least the "international peace ships" (like you say) are doing what the Arab "brothers" won't do for the Palestinians. For instance the Egyptian "brothers" gas tunnels used by the desperate Palestinians to bring in food, fuel and other basic supplies. The Egyptian "brothers" refuse to open their borders to the Palestinians. I will quote the Hamas leader Mr. Khaled Mashal "I say to the [European countries]: Hurry up and apologize to our nation, because if you do not, you will regret it. This is because our nation is progressing and is victorious. Do not leave a black mark in the collective memory of the nation, because our nation will not forgive you." "Tomorrow, our nation will sit on the throne of the world. This is not a figment of the imagination, but a fact. Tomorrow we will lead the world, Allah willing. Apologize today, before remorse will do you no good. Our nation is moving forwards, and it is in your interest to respect a victorious nation." Free Palestine.

I think it's a stupid idea because disrupting the blockade will aid the the terrorist organization Hamas and decrease the likelihood of peace. As sad as it is the fact that Gaza is facing heavy sanctions it's unfortunately a necessary maneuver. These blockades are being done to prevent Hamas from rearming and firing rockets at civilians as well as encouraging the belligerent Hamas organization to step down and allow the more pragmatic Fatah organization to take place. As long as Hamas is in power in the Gaza strip, the less likely there will be a Palestinian state unless Hamas changes it's goal from wanting the destruction of all of Israel to wanting a two state peace solution. So disrupting the blockade will only prolong the conflict even more in the long run as it will keep the Palestinians divided as well as put the lives of innocent Israeli civilians at risk. The fact that the rival Hamas is running Gaza is the only remaining obstacle to peace left.

It's a step in the right direction,but kind of tokenistic; the world can do better than this. Much better. Those waters should be totally cleared of zionist vessels by the International Maritime Commission,or sanction the zionists with no access to ports for six months. That will give them a taste of their own medicine.

It's a good first step but I will always be bitter than even the Swedish Red Cross never had the guts to challenge the blockade with relief ships. The lack of world response to the seige remains shocking and unforgivable. But we must still salute these brave sailors as they set forth to establish a very important legal precedent -the right of the de facto government of the Gaza to the sanctity of it's territorial waters.
