    BRUSSELS, (PIC)-- Prefabricated homes and relief material would be among the assistance sent to Gaza Strip aboard a flotilla of ships, the European campaign to end the siege on Gaza said in a statement on Saturday.

    The Brussels-based campaign said many international media outlets would take part in the sea journey to Gaza including the European "euronews".

    Member of the campaign Mazen Abu Kuhail said that major western media channels would cover the event, noting that live broadcast would accompany the trip.

    The same world community that turned its back on the genocide of millions in Nazi Germany and the same international community turning its back on the current genocide of millions in Sudan and Darfur by IslamoNazis?

    Bravo for their moral courage.
