Second Aid Ship Reportedly Headed Toward Gaza (The MV Rachel Corrie)
Fox News ^ | 6/3/2010 | FoxNews

Posted on 06/03/2010 6:35:32 PM PDT by Thunder90

A group of pro-Palestinian activists, including a Nobel Peace laureate from Northern Ireland, are aboard an aid ship heading for the Gaza Strip, and they expect to arrive there late Friday or early Saturday despite Israel's insistence that it will not allow any vessel to breach its blockade, according to multiple reports.

The MV Rachel Corrie, a 1,200-ton converted merchant ship purchased by pro-Palestinian activists, set off Monday from Malta, Reuters reports. The vessel is named after an American woman killed in the Gaza Strip in 2003.

Does the name not imply that the boat is “flatter than a flitter”?

These people are encouraged by the fact that the US is now a toothless tiger and ruled by a tinpot dictator who is on their side.

They KNOW they can get away with everything. Literally everything. Zero is at the hip attached to the Muslim Brotherhood so he’s not going to do a thing to stop this mess. In fact, he’s lovin’ it.

Disable don’t board.

Have divers clog intake ports for water that cools the engines.

When stopped, cut the props off.

Or Just tow the vessel with a tug to the middle of the ocean.

The Pacific ocean.

Tow the boat into the pirate waters and call them in; pay them bounty for ridding the world of the vermin. Leave them to fend for themselves in Somalia.

Israel have very smart and clever people and they have a right to block weapons.

If they do not have weapons, then what is the beef?

Trying to get another ‘crisis’ for 0?

I like your idea. Hope they read FR.

They could pay some Somalian pirates to patrol Gaza. Win/Win

That, or, with the help of O’s media, expand the hate-Israel movement.

If anyone ever saw the pure rage and hate on Rachel Corrie’s distorted face just before she was killed by the Israeli bulldozer [placed herself in front of a armored dozer with limited visibility!], they would realize that Bibi’s calling them “Hate Ships” is entirely accurate!!

Nobel Peace laureate from Northern Ireland

Well, we know that Yasir Arafat is already dead, but that does give some idea of the "peacefulness" of Nobel laureates.

If it is a boat with zero war materiel aboard, then Israel will stop it, check it, and escort it to their location for deboarding. Supplies will be transferred to Gaza.

Well since Zero got the Nobel Peace price we are already well aware that that doesn’t mean jack. So I’m not impressed. Nobel Peace Prizes are a dime a dozen.

It implies someone too stupid to get out of the way of a bulldozer.

I agree. The Israeli’s need to be politically saavy and not get the other side unnecessary political ammo. Don’t kill, maim. Don’t destroy, disable. But don’t cave.

Stop the ship and put a small charge on the propellers, just big enough to take one blade of each propeller.

"Sink that boat with a Korean torpedo."

Not needed.

Just equip some Israeli ships with dozer blades...

Rachel should never be allowed back in the US. We should make this demented idiot live in Gaza permanently.
