Small ferry carrying medical supplies that set sail from Cyprus Monday with 21 peace activists, medical supplies intercepted off Strip's shore; passengers say army jammed boat's radio signals.
At around noon Tuesday the Israeli Navy intercepted and took control of a boat that had set sail for the Gaza Strip with three tons of medical supplies, Palestinian sources said, adding that the Navy jammed the boat's radio signals.
The IDF Spokesperson's Office confirmed the report. Israeli military sources said there was no violence after the small ferry, sailing from Cyprus with activists from the US-based Free Gaza Movement, was intercepted off Gaza.
"The vessel, which was sailing under a Greek flag, left Larnaca, Cyprus on Monday en route to Gaza. After it was made clear that the boat was headed for Gaza's shore, it was told that Gaza was under a naval blockade. In light of this and the security hazards in the region, its entrance to Gaza was forbidden," the army said in a statement.

And, it requires you to know something useful/productive.
The Hamasniks in Gaza are lobbing shells, daily, into Israel.
Why aren't they sailing to Haifa, Ashdod or Tel Aviv with medical supplies?
Peace activists, my arse. These people, along with their fellow travellers, Obamao & Carter, are nothing more than apologists for their anti-Semitic brethren in Gaza.
Cynthia McKinney (D-Conspiracy)
Appearing in print just months after the September 11 attacks, McKinney's charges couldn't be excused. Nor could her list of campaign donors, which included both terrorist sympathizers like Abdurahman Alamoudi, the former executive director of the American Muslim Council, and apparent actual terrorists like former college professor Sami Al-Arian. Nor could her October 12, 2001, letter to Saudi prince Alwaleed bin Talal, in which she rebuked New York mayor Rudy Giuliani for returning the prince's post-9/11 “gift” of $10 million and urged bin Talal to donate the funds to “charities outside the mayor's control,” especially those that dealt with “poor blacks who sleep on the street in the shadows of our nation's Capitol.” Giuliani had returned the Saudi’s money because it came with the implicit condition that America “address some of the issues that led to such a criminal [9/11] attack,” among them “its policies in the Middle East,” where “our Palestinian brethren continue to be slaughtered at the hands of Israelis while the world turns the other cheek.” To Giuliani, such a statement made excuses for terrorism. This wasn't a problem for McKinney.
Is this a remake of the film “Ship of Fools”?
>>I remember reading this before. . . . . . . .
That’s because she pulled the exact same stunt in December 2008. Too bad the Israelis didn’t sink the ship last time.
If you'd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Three threads. The question, who were these goods to be delivered to. If Hamas, I don't see how they aren't aiding a designated terror group, a violation of American law.
I can only suspect she is being paid by some arab interest to keep doing this. It isn;t like they don’t already (along with china) own our government.
That would be a cause that I could support her in!
She lost her re-election bid after that remark was made by her big-mouth papi.
Isn’t this an old story?
Please sink it. Pretty please.
If Republicans ever get back into power, do you suppose we could ever correct this?
Sink it.... quickly!
Or if they hate Jews so much, they could have docked in Egypt, gone through the normal customs and then shipped it into Gaza through the Rafa crossing. Would not have to offend their eyes with seeing a single Jew.
Heck, if they had done it in Haifa I am sure the Jews would have shipped it for free. Egypt you have to pay a lot more customs.
And if they wanted to do medical supplies they should have delivered it to Haifa, because most of the Arabs have their medical done in Israel hospitals as they dont have to pay for it there, they can just walk out.
But this really is not about medical or supplies is it...
Oh please sink the d@$#ed thing!
Problem is, corrections would cause them to start burning the cities down, and no politician has the stones to face this. The Constitution says you can’t force someone to work, but it doesn’t say we have to feed them if they won’t work.
Haven’t you heard? Buckwheat became a Muslim.
His new name is Kareema Wheat.
This is not the first time she has been exposed doing this kind of thing!
