I think it is because Israel wants to inspect it themselves, not have someone else do it. Maybe they don't trust the UN to do it? Dunno.

This says FROM GAZA WATERS

LATEST****From Greta Berlin freegazaorg, #RACHELCORRIE 25MILES FROM #GAZA WATERS****LATEST....#Palestine #Flotilla This is CONFIRMED 2 minutes ago via web

If that is the case then they are still in International waters which is why the Israelis are only following them.

Yeah that makes sense, so there is a UN ship with the Israeli Navy? Man this is very confusing - what happens when the Rachel Corrie reaches Gaza waters? Israel boards?

It's being reported by Gaza inhabitants on Facebook that they can see the ship from shore.


:RT @lauradurkay: Facebook friend in Gaza says they can see the Rachel Corrie, 20 miles away from shore. #RachelCorrie #Flotilla

People in Gaza have access to the internet? I would have never guessed Israel would allow it.

it might not be a LAN connection or home wireless...

could be direct-link, satellite, internet from just a simple usb card.

Wow, this is surprising me that the RC is being allowed to get so close.

I won't feel at ease till it safely docks though.

Still is rather concerning that the Israeli's are blacking out the ship. Rumor in chat is the RC is about to enter territorial waters.

Still 2 differing stories out there. One story is that the ship was boarded, the other saying 2 or 3 warships are shadowing the Corrie but no-one has boarded.
