Divert to Darfur !! Whaddaya reckon Irish???
Only 400,000 mostly non-muslims killed by Omar al-Bashir and the Janjaweed Islamicists in the last six years or so... There must be - oh gosh - at least that many again still hiding under plastic sheets in the Darfur region of South Western Sudan.
Oh wait. They can't deliver aid to Darfur. Omar al-Bashir has a blockade on all humanitarian aid entering Sudan. Well, I guess we better just respect that, I mean, 400,000 dead, over a million displaced in six years in the Sudan versus about 40,000 killed on both sides in the 60 years of all these countries attacking Israel. Hey, the Sudan can wait.
The Israeli government has rejected a UN Security Council resolution calling for an international investigation of their attack on a civilian aid ship earlier this week, saying that they would conduct their own internal probe and that this was good enough.

If the Irish ship is attacked, the British and the Americans will be extremely angry, both have close ties to Ireland. Ireland is also a part of the EU.
This may be the action these 2 western nations have been waiting for, an excuse to finally tell Israel where to shove it.
Heck, why not just get every financially strapped nation to form an armada and descend on Israel to start ww3? Who next in PIIGS nations? Spain, or portugal or both or all at the same time.
The jews had often been a scapegoat since time immemorial. Even in this supposed enlightenment times, WE still stoop to such atrocity. Let it rip then. Let loose the dogs of war. Let us be culled and all dead. We don't seem to deserve a second chance. NWO wins.

Godspeed the Irish.
That's all i'm (sic) saying.
If there was an American Naval Blockade around Cuba to prevent nukes from getting in, would you be saying the same thing.
Israel is fighting for it's safety and has warned all ships to a certain harbor for inspection. Any ships running the blockade will be stopped.
Any ship that runs a naval blockade deserves to be dealt with in the extremes.

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah has called for a mass rally in Beirut on Friday during which he will announce "serious measures" in response to Israel's deadly raid on a Gaza aid flotilla.
"What happened with the 'Freedom Flotilla'... necessitates serious stances and measures," Nasrallah said in a televised speech Thursday to mark the 21st anniversary of the death of the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
Nasrallah said he would "announce the position... we should all take and work for" during a rally to be held Friday evening in Hezbollah's stronghold in Beirut's mainly Shiite southern suburb.
The Hezbollah chief urged "all Lebanese, Palestinians and Arabs and Muslims in Lebanon" to take part in the rally to mark their "solidarity and support for the besieged people of Gaza, for the heroes of the Freedom Flotilla who returned home alive and especially for the martyrs of the fleet."
Palestinian refugees in Lebanon are also set to mark a "day of anger" on Friday in protest against the deadly raid.
Meanwhile, one of the last boats in the Gaza mission, the Irish-owned MV Rachel Corrie is continuing its slow journey to the Israeli-imposed exclusion zone. It is expected to hit the embargo area tomorrow night or Saturday morning.
Leading Muslim scholars and religious leaders in Saudi Arabia have called for jihad against Israel after the deadly raid on the Gaza humanitarian aid flotilla this week. In a statement distributed to Arab media, 70 of the country's prominent religious leaders said Muslims had an "obligation" to take action and to help end the embargo on Gaza aid.
"We have to strike at the heart of Israel to drive them out of Muslim territories in a way that breaks the Gaza embargo," the statement said.
