Aid ship, not Israel, to blame for killings

I NOTE the ship attacked by the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) was funded by the Turkish organisation Humanitarian Relief Foundation, which is widely accepted to be a fundamentalist group with links to al-Qa’ida.

Why is it the people on this flotilla thought they would be allowed to land at Gaza, when every one before has been stopped?

If those people were so concerned about providing aid, why didn’t they take up the Israeli offer to land at an Israeli port, and be escorted to Gaza with their supplies, once it was certain no weapons that would later be used to kill Israeli civilians were included?
