Larudee's threat

International Solidarity Movement founder Paul Larudee, who has been barred from entering Israel, issues a veiled threat against the Jewish state.
Finally, this year left the projects with boats still in their possession and a strong motivation to use them. It is not likely that Greece will be able to legally prevent their use indefinitely, so these assets are still at the disposal of the organizers. If a replay of last year's encounter had occurred, Israel would likely have seized the boats and not released them, resulting in a total loss. Now, however, the organizers may reasonably be expected to develop alternate plans.

In fact, alternate plans seem to be spinning as fast as they can be imagined. Two more land convoys are currently on their way, and a million-person non-violent march to Jerusalem is being organized. A challenge by air is still under consideration, though different (and cheaper) than what was previously envisioned. The BDS campaign is gaining rapidly, with the academic and cultural boycott leading the way.

In short, what does not destroy us makes us stronger.
What could go wrong?

The anti-Israel nutcases will never give up their drive to destroy Israel. But Israel has demonstrated it just doesn't have to sit there and take it. Which is what the Paul Laurudees of the world weren't expecting. And Israel will mount more resistance to them in the future.
