I have nothing original to say about the Vicking “peace” flotilla that was stopped before arriving to Gaza.

However, coming from the US, it is striking to see the difference between how Obama would have handled this after the fact, and how Bibi responded.

Obama would have said, in essence, the same thing (the blockade will continue), while sounding positive and hopeful (Israel welcome any humanitarian help to the helpless people of Gaza strip, and will go out of its way to make sure it reaches the Gaza strip, etc, etc, etc).

Given the choice between hope and fear, fear had won once again. Predictable.
