Israel's decisions regarding its borders must be respected. If the United States issued a declaration that for safety's sake, it was going to inspect all ships entering into its waters, before they were allowed to reach land, in order to ensure that the ships were not carrying weapons, or even parts to make weapons, etc., that declaration would be respected. Simply because Israel is a smaller nation State, does not mean its declarations can be disregarded or overruled by another person or nation, simply because they disagree with Israel's decisions. Israel is its own independent sovereign nation State, has their right and ability to make decisions for itself, and those must be respected. Israel, like the United States, does not need anyone's permission to make and enforce such decisions.
