    Especially funny/Transparent now that the border with Egypt is open, and/or they certainly could be prevailed upon to deliver any goods.
    None of which are in dire need anyway.

    Of course, again, Israel has offered to deliver any/all goods itself to Gaza.. After screening that is.
    But the Lefties, antisemites, and assorted other wack jobs are determined for confrontation and Demonization. The latter the whole purpose.

    Number of Flotilla 2 participants pathetically small
    The PJ Tatler » Number of Flotilla 2 participants pathetically small

    According to AFP, only 350 “activists” are participating in the second Flotilla bent on breaking the “blockade” of suposedly suffering
    Gaza (that already has one of the Highest standards of living in the Arab world). ... But look for the reactionary media to play it up anyway.

    Among those few coming to the aid of homophobic, misogynistic, religious-fascist Hamas, Swedish crime writer Henning Mankell. For shame.

    "Baby Milk" "Baby Milk"!
    "Starvation"
    NGOs vs. Israel :: Middle East Quarterly
    NGOs vs. Israel

    "...Nor has this obsession been driven by humanitarian considerations. Not only is the Gaza Strip NOT in the throes of a deep crisis,
    but the humanitarian situation there is Better than in some of the countries whose ships have been sent on occasion to break "the siege" of Gaza
    . (!)

    Infant mortality in the Gaza Strip, for example, is 17.71 per thousand births compared to Turkey's 24.84 or the global average of 44[4];
    life expectancy in Turkey is 72.23 years whereas in Gaza it is 73.68,

    much higher than the global average of 66.12, not to mention such Arab or Islamic countries as Yemen (63.36), Sudan (52.52), or Somalia (50).[5]
    Even by more advanced indicators, such as personal computer use or Internet access, Gazans are in a much better position than many of the world's inhabitants.[6]
    In the words of the Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek, no Israel-lover by any stretch of imagination,
    "an average Congolese citizen would probably have Sold his mother into Slavery to be able to Move to the West Bank."[7]

    But whatever its underlying causes, the intense international meddling in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, whether by governments or by NGOs, has become a major obstacle to the peaceful resolution of this century-long feud.

    Rights Defenders or Peace Averters?

    Maybe we should Reverse the Flotilla direction and send the UNRWA to Turkey.

    Ahhh, Gaza. What the propagandists call Hamastan.

    Gee, it doesn't look like a radical Islamic place.

    Passengers on The Audacity of Hope Now Confident
    Greek Authorities Will Allow U.S. Boat to Leave

    Athens – Passengers on the U.S. Boat to Gaza, The Audacity of Hope, said news reports that an Israeli “lawfare” group, Shurat HaDin, is behind the complaint delaying the departure of the U.S. boat from Greece substantiate the Americans’ assertions that the complaint is frivolous. The passengers expressed confidence that Greek authorities will now quickly dispense with the complaint and allow The Audacity of Hope to sail.

    On Sunday, June 26, the Jerusalem Post reported: [1] “Sources in the Shurat HaDin (Israel Law Center) on Sunday took responsibility for lodging an anonymous civil complaint against the American-flagged ship, The Audacity of Hope, which is a part of the flotilla expected to sail towards Gaza later this week, Army Radio reported.” The Israeli group is known for making frivolous legal complaints against the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, a form of political harassment known in the U.S. as “lawfare.”

    “We reiterate that the boat we are leasing for this journey, after its refitting for the voyage to Gaza, was surveyed by a professional surveyor and successfully completed its sea trials,” said Ann Wright, an organizer and passenger on the U.S. boat. “There is no reason for any further delays on this matter, we are ready to sail.”
