the quiet before the storm - how do you say "flotilla" in Hebrew? how do you say it in English?!?!


I learned two words this past week in two languages. 

The first is flotilla. It must come from Spanish or something.

The second is מַשָּׁט (mah-SHAHT). It comes from the root ש.ו.ט, which carries the core meaning of sailing or traveling by sea

Watch this video of a news report before the encounter between the so-called humanitarians and Israel's navy. Listen for the the word משט... and repeat it.
