About a year ago, the violent attack on the Freedom Flotilla radically changed the international dialogue on Israel and Palestine. Protests in solidarity with the nonviolent activists erupted around the world, from expected global capitals like Tel Aviv and New York City to areas where one would never expect to see a Palestinian flag, like Cincinnati and Des Moines.
Palestine became less of a "controversial" issue.

A year later, Flotilla II, consisting of activists from twenty different countries aboard ten ships (including The Audacity of Hope , frequently referred to as the U.S. Boat to Gaza ) is hoping to set sail if it can secure approval from the Greek government, which is being fiercely lobbied behind the scenes to scuttle the Flotilla.
Only time will tell if the ships will be allowed to proceed on their nonviolent mission. But something that is in all of our power is the ability to personally honor the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement.
