Excerpt from an OpEd piece in the ChiTribune online,
about the Israeli commando raid on the Turkish flotilla:
"The Israelis tried to avoid a lethal confrontation.
Israeli officials reportedly offered the vessel the
same deal that was accepted by at least one previous
flotilla — divert to the Israeli port of Ashdod and
unload the cargo for inspection. As long as the cargo
doesn't contain weaponry, it will be shipped into the
Gaza Strip by land."
