Calls upon other nations to express their support for Israel's right to defend itself and condemn the IHH actions.
Expresses hope that the recent flotilla incident neither derails the Israeli-Palestinian peace process nor stops efforts to confront ongoing attempts at the United Nations to delegitimize Israel.
