Israeli youths release balloons during a rally in support of the Israeli army following a deadly raid by Israel's navy on an aid flotilla bound for the blockaded Gaza Strip and calling for the release of his son, in Jerusalem, Wednesday, June 2, 2010. In a stunning reversal that illustrated the severity of the diplomatic fallout from its bloody raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla, Israel on Wednesday dropped plans to prosecute dozens of the captured pro-Palestinian activists, moving instead to deport all of them quickly. The turnabout came as international condemnation intensified over the raid Monday on the high seas in which nine people were killed and dozens wounded, with Israel resisting calls for an independent inquiry.
