    NICOSIA, (PIC)-- The Irish ship named Rachel Corrie, which fell behind the Freedom Flotilla convoy, is ploughing ahead with its attempt to deliver aid to the Gaza Strip despite Monday’s attack by the Israeli navy and due to arrive tomorrow or the day after.

    Derek Graham, one of the crew members aboard the ship, told the Irish radio that there are 15 passengers on board the ship including a Nobel peace prize laureate.

    He said that he and the others aboard the ship had a meeting after what happened on Monday morning and decided to continue their mission, noting that the ship is carrying medical appliances, school supplies and cement bags.

    Meanwhile, the European campaign to end the siege announced that it was able to secure funding for three other aid ships after it received earlier funds for three ships of the new Freedom Flotilla convoy.

    The campaign added that it managed within the past 24 hours through intensive worldwide contacts to obtain funds for six ships that will be among a huge fleet scheduled to sail for Gaza in the next few days.

    Wasn't Rachell Corrie that idiot protester who was flattened by a bulldozer somewhere in the middle east? And she gets a ship named after her?

    Who cares.

    Medical supplies and other needs for childeren and the sick/dying are undeserved.

    Hamas is accused of shooting over-sized bottle rockets towards several stolen Palestinian farms. Therefore, 1.5 million Palestinian worms - including the children, the sick, and the elderly, MUST DIE.
