1. Dear Floptilla "activists"
Yakov ,   USA   (07.07.11)
Try flying into Syria and show solidarity for people in a real crisis.
2. I too want to thank the Israeli government for the free p.r
Abdalla   (07.07.11)
3. Do not rush to judge.Publicity may have discouraging effect.
leo ,   usa   (07.07.11)
4. It shows how desperate the Gaza fly-in losers are.
robert renders ,   belgium   (07.07.11)
5. They are taking a risk? Try Syria!
moshe   (07.07.11)
6. Bucket of reality
MnEd ,   US   (07.07.11)
Hate to throw a cold bucket of reality on the delusional "activist" but other than the "many people abroad who I'm in contact with...." (i.e., other delusional fools), this hasn't made a dent into the US media.
7. what is this thirst for PR?
IlanaB   (07.07.11)
Is that what interests them? So they just want to make Israel look bad, because without that ISrael looks good. What pathetic losers. How low.
8. That's the best you can do?
Yakov ,   Tel Aviv   (07.07.11)
Celebrating free publicity, for supporting Hamas? That's what you people consider a victory? Come on! If you don't have better than that, maybe you need a flotilla. If you "activists" really wish to do the right thing, to really improve Palestinian life, free them from the clutches of Hamas and Iran. That is far more effective than making an ass of yourself in our airports.
9. thanks for the money
courtney ,   usa   (07.07.11)
10. I'll bet quite a few of them will be leaving very unhappy.
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (07.07.11)
A bit like the original flotilla. Oh well, can't win them all.
11. Let them walk around the "NO GO" zone
BEN JABO ,   ISRAEL   (07.07.11)
In Gaza, they'll cry like babies as they beg to go home
12. No 6 Nothing in the UK press either
Emma ,   London   (07.07.11)
13. Misfits
Phil ,   USA   (07.07.11)
These so-called activists are nothing but hard-core leftists and antisemites. They lost and want to put a positive spin on their failures. Sour grapes.
14. As to flytilla PR:
I just checked the online press: nothing in the New York Times, nothing in the Washington Post, nothing in the Los Angeles Times, nothing in the Baltimore Sun, nothing in Le Monde, nothing in La Corriera della Sera, Pravda in English has an anti-Israeli piece but about the Bedouins, not the flytilla, and one Australian paper, I repeat, ONE, had an article about the flotilla two days ago. So I'm asking, what free PR?
15. "Extensive publicity?"
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (07.07.11)
Actually, you were nowhere to be found in The New York Times or The Wall Street Journal -- not yesterday; not today. Sorry. If Al Jazeera covered you ... well ... no one really cares. Bye.
16. Flotilla PR
beaugazou ,   Florida   (07.07.11)
nothing in newspapers in US, Germany, France, Switzerland. I am happy thet spent millions of dollars for nothing...
17. Why not dodge Hamas rockets and fly directly to Gaza?
18. Gaza Fly-in
Mark ,   La Canada USA   (07.07.11)
Upon landing they should give of these folks tee-shirts imprinted with: I came to help Gazans and all I got was this lousy tee shirt.
19. Gaza Fly-in
Mark ,   La Canada USA   (07.07.11)
Israeli authorities should let these activists into Israel, but slow down to a snail's pace, their access to Gaza. Take a lesson from the Greeks and make them pull their credit card out at every turn. Soak them for meals, transportation, hotels, departure taxes, and in the end don't let them reenter Israel. They can soak up the sun with Hamas. Does that sound cynical enough for you?
20. NO thank you for showing the world your stupidity !
rachel ,   usa   (07.07.11)
21. delusional idiots
tiki ,   belgium   (07.07.11)
Media Buzzzz. Where? What? Not a word in the papers, radio, TV. Big mouths, little brains.
22. Open a new tourism branch called Political Tourism
Jeff ,   Maccabim, Israel   (07.07.11)
supply them with guides buses, hotels, meals and make some money off them...
23. The Jewish people has seen and survived 10 000 worse actions
Yaniv ,   Israel   (07.07.11)
Taunting is what evil does when evil has no power. Given the power to these activists, they would become Socialist dictators and kill many people.
24. just wondering
hoogstra ,   canada   (07.07.11)
Any of those boats worth buying?
25. Saying this to save face for failing miserably
Marco ,   Spain   (07.07.11)
26. What PR???
Phil ,   Ireland   (07.07.11)
One of the fly-in organisers said "If we would have paid thousands of shekels in PR it would not have worked so well". HEY, IT DIDN'T WORK AT ALL. There is more world media coverage of the last shuttle flight than there is about the floptilla!
27. #18 A really great idea!! SO funny!
IlanaB   (07.07.11)
28. AirShip of Fools will be a disaster like the Hindenberg
29. Why is Netanyahu NOT HERE!
David ,   Karmiel, Israel   (07.07.11)
This is NOT the time for the Prime Minister to "touring" Europe! When the Marmara fiasco happened Netanyahu was in the USA! It appears that our indecisive Prime Minister has made a decision not to be in Israel when we are being vilified before the world. He should also have the sense to to put Israel's case forward in ENGLISH which most people, even his right wing, understand!
30. Freedom flotilla,not only your Are loosers
Anna M Sedda ,   Rome-Italy   (07.07.11)
but you make yourself look really stupid too....Are you happy for free PR?the one that show you Are a fool or the one that shows you Are an idiot?
