ABSTRACT
The article discusses the political climate in Israel in the aftermath of the raid on the flotilla ship Mavi Marmara in May 2010. The flotilla had been attempting to break through Israel's naval blockade of Gaza when Israeli commandos boarded the ship, killing nine people. According to the author, Israel has been reflexively using military force irrespective of the problems it faces, causing condemnation from not only many in the international community but also within Israel. Ron Pundak, director of the Peres Center for Peace notes that Israel must determine how it wants to move forward into the future by choosing either to promote an image of innovation and democracy or one of occupation and confrontational rightist politics.
