Iran Joins the Ranks of Sailors to Gaza. Will this be another "Flotilla" escapade, or will it be more meaningful?

Oh boy. If the Iranian Red Crescent can hold true to their word about peacefully supplying Gaza with aid, an interesting movement may begin to appear wherein Israel is flooded with ships docking in Ashdod to support Gaza (one way of non-violently protesting the blockade that is also not passive resistance). Yet as the "Flotilla" incident demonstrated, it's not unlikely that so-called "humanitarianism" may result in making a mockery of the suffering of Gazans, the security plight of Israelis, and serve to underline the hypocrisy of the international community (Turkey, a nation that suppresses Kurdish independence, recently bombed Kurds using Israeli-made weaponry), not to mention permitting the ongoing sensationalism of journalists and "pundits" everywhere.
