good, you do something stupid you get taken down! how is israel to know if one of these ships is not carring arms or supplies? do they not have a right to inspect incoming and out going goods and aid to ensure its legit.

hamas has arm shipment routes all through the area. they used to come through egypt till egypt started wising up and workign with israel to close gaza down.

these activist have alterier motives, they wish to make israel look bad, they can care less about the palestinians, just like how the arabs hoped the palestinians would starve to death to make israel look bad

They certainly are doing a good job making Israel look bad by jumping in front of Israeli bullets and bull-dozers while having their people starve themselves to death. Away with you troll, this thread is about the Rachel Corrie.

From the get-go, the sources were following spewed out that the IDF boarded the boat and arrested everyone, now it's totally different. It's hard to say what's really going on. I even called out in the beginning that it could be false information that the IDF boarded, and I was right. So, who knows.

Israel Navy Communicates Radio Message to 7th Flotilla Ship


The Israel Navy conveyed the following message to the 7th flotilla ship a few moments ago via radio transmission:

“This is the Israeli Navy. You are approaching an area of hostilities which is under a naval blockade. The Gaza area, coastal region and Gaza Harbor are closed to all maritime traffic. The Israeli government supports delivery of humanitarian supplies to the civilian population in the Gaza Strip and invites you to enter the Ashdod port. Delivery of the supplies in accordance with the authorities’ regulations will be done via the formal land crossings and under your observation, after which you can return to your home ports aboard the vessels on which you arrived.”

The ship organizers chose to ignore the invitation to dock at the Ashdod port where the cargo could be unloaded and transferred to the Gaza Strip upon inspection.

So many different reports, what one to believe? I guess it will all be settled soon, the suspense is intense! Just hope there is no more bloodshed.


Thats how criminals get away with things, by keeping it hidden, don't you get it>

Why do you think they steal behind your back? They kill behind your back? And if they don't, they will lie in front of your face, and say were you there? No, so F'off

If that is the way you feel, then you are entitled to that however what you are not entitled to do is to make assumptions about my stance in all this.

I have neither supported nor condemned the action, merely reported what at the time was thought to be the fact that the MV Rachel Corrie had been boarded.

Because I reported the news does that make me side with them? No it does not. But really I don't think you actually need to know how I stand on this.

I think both sides would benefit under that announcement by the Israeli Navy. Seems fair, Rachel Corrie docks, delivers aid on land under the crew's watch and then they go home. Sounds ok, but is it ok to follow Israels commands?

Israel has banned much of what the RC is carrying though. They won't pass it along to Gaza.

An update from Freegaza's twitter.



2:27am EST

Sky News now: RC refused a second call to go to Ashdod. Not sure of the source for this. #Flotilla




2:24am EST

Engine expert. "They may be apprehensive to use helicopters this time. If you want to drag the Rachel, you must first break his engine."


It's difficult to get a firm grip on this situation with the conflicting information, but I sincerely hope The Rachel Corrie makes it safely to Gaza.

Or it will be reported that Hamas will not let the Gazans accept it?

On a rather hilarious sidenote. Al Jazeera arabic is running a fear piece about the internet while showing clips of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas and a guy in silhouette is illustrating facebook, torrent sites, and all the regular stuff we take for granted on the net everyday.

No, the Israelis won't transport it.

There is a lot of bags of cement on that ship and that is just one of the banned materials.

Well if you are committed to personally handing cargo to Gaza, then is it ok to hand it over to their enemy? I wouldn't think so.

I just meant usually Israeli news (erm IDF) reports that they deliver the goods, then blame Hamas.

I'm getting loopy and probably not making much sense. I have too much family in the whole region
