Gaza aid ship to dock in Egypt after Israel pressure


news.bbc.co.uk

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.

Israel is up to their shenanigans again. After releasing a bunch of press regarding lifting the ban on some items allowed into Gaza, Israel is now trying to block more aid ships with rice and sugar aboard. This blockade either needs to be lifted or Israel needs to declare all out war on the Palestinians. It is a load of B.S. that Israel can pick and choose the stance they are going to have on the aid ships just to make them look good in the MSM.

When you have no accountability what do you expect. They refused to allow an independent investigation over the last raid saying "trust us" (big smile) we'll be fair. Thats like trusting the fox guarding the hen house to investigate if he did wrong by eating a chicken. We all know the answer to that one.

Blocking another aid ship is par for the course. They will not declare war nor say that they are an occupying force. Their beef is with Hamas but they punish the people instead. As long as the US backs them in this regard they will keep it up. I guess Israel and the US want to keep pushing until they start another war.

"Any diversion from its current course towards Gaza will be stopped by the Israeli Navy, using all of the tools at its disposal," an Israeli military official told the Yediot Aharonot newspaper

The reports that this ship was going to dock in Egypt have been denied by the boats organizers. Now Israel is warning this ship. This could end badly again for Israel, and only make the situation there worse. This is probably what is wanted by Israel so they have more reasons to attack.
