Last time, the boatloads of useful idiots and their "Lets-bring-some-Love-to-Hamas-Flotilla" were sponsored by Erdogan, the Turkish Adolf with Caliph ambitions; consequently, there were quite a few terrorists among them who subsequently met their 72 virgins earlier than they had planned to. And they nearly conned the world, remember?
Last week they were at it again.
The Israeli Navy intercepted a Gaza-bound flotilla overnight Sunday-Monday meant to break the maritime blockade on the Strip.
Israeli commandos boarded the main ship, the Swedish registered Marianne of Gothenburg, and took control of the vessel. The IDF said the interception occurred without an incident or injuries.
What's with all the perimenopausal females joining these exhibitionist lying-feasts?(their demographic is also overrepresented in the nastily racist BDS movement). Do they just hate Jews so much, are they really that dumb, or is their motivation some masturbatory dream of getting laid by a HAMAS terrorist?
Anyway, this beauty above may have been on one of the 3 "Freedom Flotilla III" vessels that turned back unexpectedly with activists on board issuing this statement: "We once again call on the government of Israel to finally lift the blockade on Gaza. Our destination remains the conscience of humanity". (my bolds). No shrinking violets these faux compassionistas, are they.
One of the four boats that formed the “Freedom Flotilla III”, the "Marianne" was intercepted by the IDF Navy in their attempt to breach the maritime blockade. It has been towed to the Ashdod port by a naval patrol, after which activists on board the ship will most likely be deported.

“In accordance with international law, the Israeli Navy advised the vessel several times to change course,” the IDF confirmed in a statement. “Following their refusal, forces visited and searched the vessel in international waters in order to prevent the intended breach of the maritime blockade on the Gaza Strip.”
“The forces have reported that use of force was unnecessary, and that the process was uneventful. "
Here is a nice group photo of the cruise passengers for the souvenir album:

including former Tunisian president Moncef Marzouki and Arab MK Basel Ghattas
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed naval commandos for “their determined and efficient action in detaining the passengers on the ship that tried to reach the Gaza coast in contravention of the law.”
In a statement released to the media, the prime minister added:
“This flotilla is nothing but a demonstration of hypocrisy and lies that is only assisting the Hamas terrorist organisation and ignores all of the horrors in our region. Preventing entry by sea was done in accordance with international law and even received backing from a committee of the UN Secretary General.”
But I saved the best for last:
On Sunday, Netanyahu’s office released a special letter for the flotilla activists:
“Welcome to Israel!”
“It appears you’ve made a mistake along the way. Perhaps you meant to sail somewhere not far from here — Syria. There, Assad’s regime is massacring his own people every day with the help of the murderous Iranian regime.In contrast, here in Israel, we are dealing with a situation where terrorist organisations such as Hamas are trying to harm innocent civilians. In the face of these attempts, we are protecting the citizens of Israel in accordance with international law.If human rights really interested you, you wouldn’t sail in solidarity with a terror group that executes Gazans without trial, and uses Gazan children as human shields.”
I don't know if Bibi finished this letter of with kisses or if he expressed the wish to see the visitors all soon again...
Update 1. 7. 2015:
The Daily Algemeiner shows exclusive images of the ship's interception and describes a dialogue taking place between the IDF and the Ship's captain:
"...Soldiers can also be heard addressing former Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki who was on board the flotilla. One of the Israelis told Marzouki: “I am surprised that you are on your way to support a regime which has the same ideology of those who committed an act of terror on your shores.” The soldier was referring to the brutal assault on Friday by Islamic State sympathizer Seifeddine Rezgui, who killed dozens of innocents at a Tunisian resort, mainly British and European vacationers."
A spokesperson from the Israeli embassy in Wellington said: “Recent pronouncements and interviews concerning the Marianne ship have deliberately obscured some basic facts:
1. Gaza is open to all humanitarian aid through the crossings from Israel.
2. Every day about 550 truckloads of goods carrying everything from foodstuffs to vehicles pass into Gaza from Israel.
3. 10 million USD are invested to upgrade the border crossings to permit passing of up to 1000 trucks per day.
4. The only restrictions apply to weapons and a list of dual-use items which can be used to manufacture weapons and terrorist infrastructure
