Flotilla activists are trying to put the blame on someone else for their failure, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Army Radio Sunday morning.

Commenting on the flotilla organizers' claims that Israel deliberately tried to sabotage the ships, Lieberman said the activists are attempting "to avoid responsibility for the failure of their propaganda, and their inability to get support from the world and international media."

Despite Greek authorities forbidding flotilla ships from sailing to Gaza as well as technical setbacks experienced by the ships, Adam Shapiro, an American co-founder of the International Solidarity Movement, and one of the organizers of the flotilla, told The Jerusalem Post on Saturday night that the group still planned to sail to the Gaza Strip in the coming days.
