The people on this ship have already said that they would not resist.
Most likely, the ship will go to an Israeli port and offload their cargo there.

i do not understand the hatred people have for Israel and especially the pro Islamic sentiment on ATS recently. Israel is the one beacon of light in the black hole that is the middle east.

I don't see a pro-islamic sentiment, just a very critical view of the wrong doings of a particular country.
