This article calls on Israel to re-evaluate its strategy in Gaza in the wake of the international reaction to the Gaza aid flotilla incident. The assault by Israeli troops on the Gaza aid flotilla has eroded the international standing of Israel. It explains the importance for Israel to understand the root causes of the Gaza aid flotilla. It points out that the security benefits that Israel gets from cutting off Gaza from the rest of the world to cripple or change the political goals of the Hamas group which govern Gaza is negligible.
