Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon criticized the "hypocrisy" of the Lebanese aid flotilla which is organizing to sail for Gaza and defended Israel's continued blockade of the coastal territory in an opinion article published in Thursday's Wall Street Journal.

Ayalon gave an account of the basic human rights that Palestinians living in Lebanon are denied, including, owning property, working in various professions and access to a health care system that the rest of the Lebanese people enjoy. He said he found it to be "the height of irony" that a flotilla setting out from Tripoli with the supposed goal of easing Palestinian suffering in Gaza is ignoring the plight of the Palestinians in Lebanon.He added that flotillas "have nothing to do with humanitarian concerns and everything to do with delegitimizing Israel."
