Israel’s blockade is once again coming under scrutiny as a Libyan aid ship heads to Gaza, despite orders from the Israeli government to divert to the port of Ashdod. Sent by the Gadhafi Foundation, the ship is carrying 2,000 tons of aid, along with eight activists and an Al Jazeera journalist. It is expected to arrive in roughly three days. But Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who said the ship would not be allowed to enter the Palestinian territory called it, "an unnecessary provocation." If Israeli forces decide to board the ship — as they did in May, when violence between commandos and activists left nine Turks dead — the Gadhafi Foundation has already promised they would not meet any resistance.
