Israeli navy diverts Gaza-bound yacht.

Israel has turned away yet another boat headed for Gaza.

The Israeli navy today boarded a yacht carrying 10 Jewish activists who were attempting to break the sea blockade around Gaza, forcibly diverting the vessel to the nearby port of Ashdod.

"There was no resistance, no violence," an Israeli military spokeswoman said. "Before we boarded, we twice asked the captain not to cross the international line into Gaza waters but he refused."

But, one only has to look at who was on board to see how clearly Israel is losing the PR war over it's Gaza blockade.
Among the passengers are an Israeli Holocaust survivor, an Israeli whose daughter was killed in a suicide bombing in 1997, and a former Israeli air force pilot.
Hardly the "terrorists" that Israel usually claim are attempting to break it's blockade. All people of conscience are now waking up to the injustice of this.

Just how stubborn is Netanyahu? For how long will he insist on defending this PR nightmare for his country?
