LARNACA, Cyprus — International activists and sympathetic nations are challenging Israel’s economic blockade of the Gaza Strip, now ruled by the militant Islamic group Hamas, by sending aid ships to replenish supplies that used to come through Israel.

As more ships prepare to test Israel’s blockade, the campaign poses a quandary for Israeli leaders.

“This has now become a phenomenon,” said Hirsch Goodman, a senior research fellow at Israel’s non-partisan Institute for National Security Studies.

    • Michael, please don’t use this blog to advertise for your blog. I edited your message and put your blog post as your website on your name.

      Why is it that in the US and Britain, too, the corporate media will not show the devastation happening to the people of Gaza? There is a media blackout. This blog highlights that fact and attempts to bring news that is otherwise unheard.

      “Two wrongs don’t make a right.” Violence is wrong whether perpetuated by either the Israelis or the Palestinians.
