    These people had to know they would be stopped, so this was just a stunt to get some headlines. The bad news for them is that I may be the only person in the world who is still interested in reading stories about the flotilla.

    Banning ships to go to Gaza is political policy not law. The only reason Greece can get away with it is because it knows that Israel's toadies in these governments will not do anything to defend their citizens.

    Greece can "get away with it" because the UN and most western countries, as well as many Arab/Muslim countries that oppose Hamas, support them.

    So the law does not matter?

    Why not? Everything else about Israel is Illegal.
