    STOCKHOLM, (PIC)-- The organization of "Jews for a Just Peace in the Middle East" in Europe and "Jews for Justice for Palestinians" in Britain have announced their intention to send a ship loaded with aid to the Gaza Strip in an effort to break the Israeli siege imposed on the enclave. The aid vessel is expected to set sail in the second half of July.

    According to organizers, the ship will carry gifts from schoolchildren in Europe, in addition to medicine and medical equipment. The ship will also be covered by television stations worldwide. Organizers said that the main objective of the ship is to "break the siege on Gaza. This collective punishment on the civilian population is unlawful."

    Lutz Edith, one of the organizers of the ship, said, "Israel has shown the world its brutality and heinousness when it attacked the Freedom Flotilla."

    Another aid convoy from Algeria will set out on Wednesday towards Gaza, after the Guidance and Reform Society, which organized the convoy, obtained a license from the Egyptian embassy in Algeria, which also approved of granting visas to the delegation accompanying the convoy, after a wait of nearly one week.

    I hear that Neturei Karta are dependents of the indigenous Palestinian Jews who were opposed to the creation of a Jewish state. They said it would lead to generations of death and destruction.

    Nobody listens to those who are right.

    I can't see the article or the pic in the OP, but Neturei Karta is of course fundamentally opposed to Zionism, the forcible creation of the State of Israel and the dispossession of its native inhabitants.

    However, the groups listed in the reports I linked are not Neturei Karta. They are:

    Jewish Voice for Peace (US)
    Jewish Voice for Peace

    European Jews for a Just Peace in the Near East "Jüdische Stimme'' (Germany)
    Jüdische Stimme, Frieden, gerechter Frieden, Nahost, Naher Osten, Israel, Palästina, Europa, EJJP, European Jews, Just Peace, Middle East

    and Jews for Justice For Palestinians (UK)
    Jews for Justice for Palestinians

    Most of today's Neturei Karta are descended from religious Jewish families who have lived in Jerusalem for the past several hundred years. Most of these families emigrated to Palestine from Lithuania and Hungary during the Ottoman Empire.
