The Gaza flotillas – so what's next?

The planned protest by Left Wing activists in Israel against Turkey has been called off. The activists wanted to sail from Israel directly to Famagusta to protest against the Turkish military presence in  Northern Cyprus. The Government in Jerusalem has, apparently,  on the basis of reports in the Cypriot press “dissuaded” them from setting out. The president of the TRNC, Dervis Eroglu, had bargained for the arrival of the Israelis and expressed his disappointment with the words

”If they had come, we would have met them with friendship not weapons”
