    NAZARETH, (PIC)-- Israel is preparing for what is being described by its army as the “mother of all flotillas,” which could include up to 20 different ships planning to set sail for the Gaza Strip in the coming months, Jerusalem Post reported on Tuesday.

    The English language newspaper said that the army is closely tracking the planned flotilla, preparing for wide-range of scenarios including the possibility that due the large number of ships, it will need to stop the flotilla far from regional shores.

    Anwar Gharbi, a member of the European campaign to end the siege on Gaza which is one of the founders of the freedom flotilla, said that hundreds of NGOs were backing the Freedom Flotilla 2.

    Organizers of the fleet decided to delay its sail until the end of year in view of the expanding number of institutions and individuals wishing to participate in it.

    Disable the props.

    Tow them to sand-bars

    Run them aground.


    Why is this so fucking complicated?
