As for the Irish-owned ship Rachel Corrie, which is attempting to reach Gaza, the foreign minister said that "we are in touch with Ireland. In any case, we won't let the boat reach the shores of Gaza. We've explained this to the Irish." Asked whether he would suggest military action against the Rachel Corrie, Lieberman said once again, "We won't let the Irish ship reach Gaza's shores."

They should reach Israel by early Friday
Bethlehem - Ma'an - The Irish Times reported Thursday that the MV Rachel Corrie assumed a holding position in the eastern Mediterranean one day earlier, apparently waiting for two other boats to sail as a second flotilla to Gaza by the week's end.
Free Gaza organizer Greta Berlin told the Times that a small ship, Challenger II ,was being fixed so it was fit for the voyage.
In addition to Berlin, aboard the ships will be Nobel Prize laureate Mairead Maguire and former UN assistant secretary general Denis Halliday.The
A statement from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) said the Rachel Corrie was carrying 1,000 tons of educational and rebuilding supplies.

Re Irish aid ship that will "break the blockade," are the Irish now being funded by Hamas and various other terrorist organizations? The flotilla 'humanitarian aid workers' were funded by Hamas and seen in a video chanting, 'death to the Jews.' Such a lovng peaceful group.

The blockade is established, legal or not. The legality of the blockade is moot.
