Compare the Estelle to one of the Israeli warships that may attack it

”Estelle is a steel-hulled 53-metre ship originally (1922) built for North Sea trawl fishing. Before being converted into a Fair Trade vessel in the 1980s, she spent about fifteen years hauling gravel from Vuolahti to Helsinki. In 2012 the Estelle was sold to Ship to Gaza Sweden for an attempt to break and lift the Gaza blockade.”
(Quotation from Estelle´s web page:</wbr>estelle)

”The Protector is an integrated naval combat system, based on unmanned, autonomous, remotely controlled surface vehicles. Highly maneuverable and stealthy, the Protector can conduct a wide spectrum of critical missions, without exposing personnel and capital assets to unnecessary risk.
The Protector’s anti-terror mission module payload includes sensors and weapon systems. The search radar and the Toplite electro-optical (EO) pod enable detection, identification and targeting operations. The weapon systems are based on Rafael’s Typhoon remote-controlled, stabilized weapon station, capable of operating various small caliber guns. The highly accurate, stabilized weapon station has excellent hit-and-kill probability.” According to Jerusalem Post, the purpose of the Protector is ”stopping Palestinian fisherman from sailing outside their permitted area or preventing flotillas from sailing to the Gaza Strip”.
