Aid ship to sail from Greece for blockaded Gaza



A charity headed by the second son of Libyan leader Moamar Gaddafi is sending an aid boat from Greece to Gaza on Friday to break the Israeli "siege," the organizers said Nine pro-Palestinian activists died in May when Israeli marines stormed a Turkish aid ship heading a Gaza-bound convoy, prompting world outcry, a crisis in Israeli-Turkish relations and a condemnation from the United Nations Security Council. " We are doing what we can, if everybody steps back and says the Israelis will not allow it, nothing will happen and the people of Gaza will starve " Youssef Sawani, executive director of the Gaddafi Foundation Israel said its commandoes were attacked with knives and sticks when they boarded the ship and acted in self-defense. "We are doing what we can, if everybody steps back and says the Israelis will not allow it, nothing will happen and the people of Gaza will starve," said Youssef Sawani, executive director of the Gaddafi International Charity and Development Foundation, which is organizing the aid trip

This should be interesting, as for the Iranian aid got postponed because it got too hot. I wonder what the Israeli defence force will do now.
Wishing them all well in their endevours still and may it be peaceful.

Did not see you had this in as I was looking for the JP title.

This one is the most interesting.

I'll quote a tidbit:



"We are heading for Gaza. We will not change direction," Mashallah Zwei, a representative of the Kadhafi Foundation, a Libyan charity, told AFP by satellite phone from on board the Amalthea.
