Was Israel Forced to Act Stupidly in the Flotilla Raid?

Clearly the Gaza situation is untenable, and what Israel is doing to those people is a crime against humanity. Still, it's hard to believe a country-- even Israel-- would do such a patently public and obnoxious act as to attack an aid convoy with commandos and kill many people. Was Israel forced by the Powers That Be to commit this atrocity? Otherwise, it doesn't make much sense.

Yes, US politicians act slavishly to Israel, but why do they want to share in this black-eye? Just for political purposes-- for the support of asshole wing of the country? But surely something deeper is going on here, too.

Maybe to get permission to overfly Turkish air space on way to Iran.

gold, or carpet of something less
