URGENT ISRAELI NAVY BLOCK VIVA PALESTINA AID CONVOY

ATTENTION NEW UPDATE HERE

I just got a message from the Derry to Gaza team on the Viva Palestina convoy with the latest developments which are not very good for the Convoy or Gaza, They are hearing that Israel will be performing "military" operations in the waters, and the convoy cannot pass through. This leaves them stranded and unable to make the deadline for crossing the Rafah border which Egypt has given them. When I get more updates I'll post them, that's it for now. Here's the message:
The boats were loaded with aid today and ready to leave for AL Arish, the plan was that we would meet them there, as we would fly to Al Arish and arrive before the boats.

However, the update is that the Israelis have just announced that they will be performing military operations in these waters and therefore the aid has no way of passing through these waters. So there is no point getting flights to Al Arish tomorrow as the aid wont be arriving. Of course, it now seems highly unlikely that we will get to the Rafah crossing between the 3rd and 6th when Egypt said the gates would be open to us. The Convoy is now brought to a total standstill. The Israelis have pulled a very dirty tactic here if what we are hearing is true. For now this is all we are hearing. More updates when we get them.

Derry to Gaza Team
update, it's now after midnight in Ireland, no more news, will check for any messages tomorrow

It takes a lot to make me cry.....but tears flow now.
How barbaric is Israel that they cannot destroy even the smallest good in the world?

Salam, this is not over yet, I have faith they will make it:)

InshaAllah I hope they will make it soon despite all the difficulties Israel is inflicting. How cruel can they get? They have not an atom's weight of compassion to let those who want to deliver humanitarian aid to the helpless and voiceless imrisoned in the most inhumane way, proceed. Israel authorities has earned itself the 'cruelest of the cruel' prize of the last sixty years plus....Shame on them!!!

If this is true-then this is disgusting- seriously these people cant be humans. InshaAllah they will get to Gaza and inshaAllah this will raise the convoys profile and attract more attention to the gaza cause!

As the heroes of Viva Palestina travel to Gaza, let us support the message they are endorsing.

Please everyone, buy Lowkey's new single for Palestine and pass the message, for more details please visit:

why are people surprised that israeli would do such things? they have done much worse! i hope its not true, but if it is, it really shouldn't surprise anyone. this is a terrorist state, founded on ethnic cleansing, and has been killing civilians for more than 60 years without much concern about world opinion, they've inflicted a humanitarian catastrophe on a captive civilian population, and you think they'll hesitate to block an aid convoy!?

At the end of the last convoy, the money was given to Hamas terrorists. This happened in front of the world's media. Will the same happen this time?

We say:

America hands over “money and aid” to the democratically elected terrorist government of Israel to the tune of 3 billion a year. You don’t seem to have a problem with that though.

Hence, Giving money to the democratically elected Gazan Government is no different. So happy to see that this just really pisses you off doesn’t it now. That’s the problem with democracy, it’s a bitch……….

May the gods of the apartheid illegal entity in the middle east and its obsequious supporter, Egypt, inflict the greatest torments on the evil, pitiless, despicable rulers of these lands and their endorsers till the end of time.

These people who live parasitically on the labours of the people of America, the UK and Europe, are evolutionary rejects and like their role models, the Nazis, will vanish from the pages of history.

By handing money to Hamas you are funding the repression of the Palestinians.

The way Hamas brutalises its own people is well documented. Torturing and killing peaceful opponents, beating women for crimes such as laughing to loudly on a beach. Putting Palestinians into the line of fire as human shields. And so on...

That's what you are funding. Do you support it?

It's a shame you didn't find a way of helping the Palestinians, rather than funding Hamas who repress and brutalise them.

Irish4Palestine said...

Oh look another "anonymous" hasbara spreader.

you said: By handing money to Hamas you are funding the repression of the Palestinians.

>>>>>>>>.LOL surely you jest, the Zionist Illegal entity is suppressing Palestinians, you know, those evil people you support? Hamas want peace, all your evil cohorts have to do is return to 67 borders and lift illegal siege like hamas and all sane people want you to do, stop stealing and being criminals. It’s that easy.

you said: The way Hamas brutalises its own people is well documented. Torturing and killing peaceful opponents, beating women for crimes such as laughing to loudly on a beach. Putting Palestinians into the line of fire as human shields. And so on...

>>>>>>>>

1. Again LOL, It was not hamas who murdered 1400 civilians including 400 children, using US supplied drones, f-16s’ and white phosphorous, it was your evil cohort killers who did that. Did you enjoy watching the flesh burn off small children? Did it give you a thrill to see them dying?

2. do you really want to bring up the issue of womens rights? Seriously bad move on your part, perhaps you need a reality check about the Zionist Rogue State, here ya go: http://irish4palestine.blogspot.com/2009/12/in-israelwomen-erased-beaten-and-sent.html

3. do you really want to talk about human shields as well? Have you bothered to read the goldstone report? Nope? Didn’t’ think so. Truth hurts, here’s more truth for ya on the human shield thing: http://desertpeace.wordpress.com/2009/01/16/the-israeli-human-shield/


you said: That's what you are funding. Do you support it?

>>>>>>>>>>>>>.No we do not support what you do, in fact we support the Geneva Convention and International law for all countries, including Israel, When Israel becomes equal, instead running and hiding from the law and it’s crimes, then people will may feel differently towards you.

you said: It's a shame you didn't find a way of helping the Palestinians, rather than funding Hamas who repress and brutalise them.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>We are helping them, but it’s a shame you are not, instead you are killing them and enjoying every second if it. Did you learn nothing from the holocaust, other then to inflict in on others? Shame on you, thank God for people like Hedy Epstein, a real Jew, not a racist murdering Zionist. One final point, how does it feel trying to defend the crimes and lies of the most hated country in the world everyday and failing miserably.

Have a great day!

Thanks for the lengthy rant, but you completely dodged the question.

So....

Do you support what Hamas does (including suicide bombings of pizza parlours, rockets fired at civilians, brutalising of the Palestinian people).

If you do not support that, why are you funding Hamas?

Irish4Palestine said...

@anonymous Zionist back again I see.

you said: Thanks for the lengthy rant, but you completely dodged the question.

>>>>>No, you’re just incapable of understanding anything that requires greater than room temperature IQ. I’ll simplify it for you.Pay attention now.

you said: Do you support what Hamas does (including suicide bombings of pizza parlours, rockets fired at civilians, brutalising of the Palestinian people).

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Hate to confuse you with facts, as you don’t like facts, you like hasbara, but here goes: You continually invade their country, using the 4th largest army in the world, WITH hidden nuclear weapons, you steal land, murder at will and hide behind your Israeli controlled AIPAC funded American government. Given that they don’t have America sending THEM white phosphorous, DIME missiles, tanks, drones, bunker buster bombs and the like, what other way are they meant to fight back? What you *REALLY* mean is that you believe they have no right *TO* fight back, they should just allow you to slaughter them. Typical Zionist hasbara, focus on the means, not the cause, which, Israel holds all the responsibility for. YOU are the agressors, not them.

You dont like the "means" in which they fight back? Then perhaps Palestinains should be supplied with the "officially recognised means to defend itself, e.g. American made weapons like YOU have" so then we can have a fair fight on the battle field? Nope? you like going after unarmed people who only have tiny rockets. IDF Cowards..

Dangerous rockets fired at Israel:

Want peace? UN Security Council Resolution 242 to begin with

Cheers, run along and annoy someone else now.
