Israel Braces For Next ‘Gaza Aid’ Ships

From Rachel Corrie’s undying fans at Reuters:

Israel navy braced to intercept next Gaza aid ship

June 1, 2010

(Reuters) – Activists vowed on Tuesday to try to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza with another ship, and an Israeli officer pledged to halt it, setting the stage for a fresh confrontation after Monday’s deadly clash.

The MV Rachel Corrie, a converted merchant ship bought by pro-Palestinian activists and named after an American woman killed in the Gaza Strip in 2003, set off Monday from Malta, organizers said. "We are an initiative to break Israel’s blockade of 1.5 million people in Gaza. Our mission has not changed and this is not going to be the last flotilla," Free Gaza Movement activist Greta Berlin, based in Cyprus, told Reuters.

Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen described the vessel as Irish-owned and said it should be allowed to finish its mission. The ship was carrying 15 activists including a northern Irish Nobel Peace laureate.

"The government has formally requested the Israeli government to allow the Irish-owned ship … to be allowed to complete its journey unimpeded and discharge its humanitarian cargo in Gaza," Cowen told parliament in Dublin

Which government is that? Ireland’s or Hamas? (And what is it with the Irish and their love of blood-thirsty terrorists?)

Passengers include Northern Irish Nobel peace laureate Mairead Corrigan-Maguire and Denis Halliday, an Irish former senior UN diplomat, and several other Irish citizens.

Speaking of lovers of blood-thirsty terrorists. The violently anti-Semitic Ms. Corrigan-Maquire all by herself should be enough to discredit the Nobel Peace Prize for all time.

Irish Foreign Minister Micheal Martin told parliament he had spoken with Halliday Tuesday afternoon.

"We will be watching this situation very closely — as indeed will the world — and it is imperative that Israel avoid any action which leads to further bloodshed," Martin said

Yes, you read that right. The Northern Irish are lecturing Israel about how to deal with terrorism.

The Rachel Corrie was carrying medical equipment, wheelchairs, school supplies and cement, a material Israel has banned in Hamas-ruled Gaza, organizers said.

Sure they are. By the way, cement is banned because the clever Palestinians use it to make their smuggling tunnels.

Mind you, these are the same people who don’t have sewers because they use the pipes for rocket launchers.

    The Irish are bored because they aren’t fighting the English anymore?

  2. NoNeoCommies says:

    Israel needs to mount foam nozzles on their helicopters to spay the “activists” with glue foam before landing troops.
    Just glue them to the deck after disabling the ship.

    • Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:

      Israel needs to mount GAU-17/As on their helicopters to spray the “activists”.

  3. Liberals Demise says:

    If the Irish had a real Navy, they would not tolerate this invasion on their shores either.
    I agree with Banned by the Taliban when he said “Add more ships to the artificial reef barrier” and make a tourist vacation diving spot.

  4. Travis says:

    Confiscate the ship and deport everyone on it to Gaza..

  5. wirenut says:

    Why not go North Korean and sink them? No news there. Not enough Jews in the NK to condemn it I guess.

  6. eaglewingz08 says:

    Israel should declare Ireland to be a state sponsor of terror and state that if Ireland allows this terror ship to leave port, it will strip Ireland’s diplomats of diplomatic immunity, have them recalled, will recall its ambassadors from Ireland, and downgrade its relationship with Ireland to the level it has with Lebanon and Syria, also state sponsors of terrorism.
