Israel steps up bid to block aid ship bound for Gaza

The Amalthea in Lavrio, 9 July The Amalthea is carrying 2,000 tonnes of food, medicine and other items

Israel has stepped up its attempts to stop an aid ship breaking its blockade of Gaza, sending a letter to the UN and engaging Greece and Moldova in talks.

The Moldovan-flagged ship, Amalthea, chartered by a charity run by the son of Libyan leader Col Muammar Gaddafi, was due to leave the Greek port of Lavrio on Saturday.

Israel said it now believed the ship would not reach Gaza.

An Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound ship in May killed nine Turkish activists.

Israel insisted its troops were defending themselves but the raid sparked international condemnation. Israel recently eased its blockade, allowing in almost all consumer goods but maintaining a "blacklist" of some items.

Israel says its blockade of the Palestinian territory is needed to prevent the supply of weapons to the Hamas militant group which controls Gaza.

The foreign ministry believes that due to these talks, the ship will not reach Gaza

Ah yes, I've read about this...the Libyan relief ship bound from Gaza from Greece. In fact, even though this Libyan ship told them they were welcome to search and then deliver the aid themselves to Gaza, Israel went to the UN and asked them to "block" it.

Odd how that silly UN comes in handy at times and is to be totally ignored when not convenient...you know...for things like sanctions and treaties and inquiries.

I think maybe Israel got thrown for a loop because with the loss of Turkey as a friend, they've been courting Greece and Egypt, and this ship leaving from Greece probably shook them. Just a theory from what I've observed.

Your theory is correct......

Double standards. Israel craps in the face of the UN than asks them to wipe it's ass.
Maybe the UN should blackade Israel for a few years... Give them the same back. See how they like it.

Well, at some point the Israelis are going to have to accept the reality that public reaction to their behavior and their horrendously dishonest propaganda is to regard them as being below the worst of the worst past heinous nationalities.

I have decided to join you in this little playground!

Stop and think...Would you want one of your "enemies"
shipping supplies to the other side?I believe Israel may
not care about letting foodstuffs' and medicines going
through the blockade.I think Israel is concerned over
the items that might be hidden in them.

Maybe if they didnt starve and kill the Gaza folk they wouldnt have any enemys to worry about. Its mostly over Gaza that Israel has so many enemies. Thats unless you read Debka.

Didnt they learn from the past fiasco, when they pirated the Turkish ship? Any other country that did that would be black listed by the so called free world. UN? They are a bunch of tossers. Isreal ahve broken more UN regulations than any other country. Yet they are still allowed ilegal wmd. Guess its ok to do this, if you have america backing you.

Any state who makes war on children by denying them cookies
needs to be exposed however whenever and where ever.
Like if it was your own children being treated like that we would find it boring too.

The children wouldn't be starving if their parents
would grow up and stop acting like children.The
children would still be starving even if ALL the supply
ships got through.You know why?The food would go
to feeding the military,not the civilian population.

I guess your arguement doesn't hold up to the facts:
If it was your children starving under invasion would you give the army their cookies?


The Israeli government has admitted that its blockade of Gaza is not a security measure but actually an act of "economic warfare" against Hamas, an Israeli human rights group says.

In response to a lawsuit by the Tel-Aviv based Legal Center for Freedom of Movement (Gisha), the Israeli government explained the blockade as an exercise of the right of economic warfare, mcclatchydc.com reported on Wednesday.

Yes and they will be taking the cheque book with them to ensure compliance with any requests.

Our politicans are nothing better than the mafia and won't do the job they are being paid to do.

No taxation without representation i say.
