Iran blinks, will not send "aid ship" to Gaza

SNIPPET: "IRNA said that Sheikholeslam told reporters in the northern city of Rasht that the ship had originally been scheduled to depart for Gaza on Thursday, but that its departure was postponed until Sunday because of restrictions imposed by Israel.

He added that officials then decided instead to cancel the trip altogether, shipping to Gaza the goods by other means, IRNA said."

Iran Revolutionary Guards ready to escort Gaza ships
Alertnet.org ^
Posted on June 6, 2010 5:59:13 AM PDT by Sub-Driver

Iran Revolutionary Guards ready to escort Gaza ships 06 Jun 2010 12:40:35 GMT Source: Reuters TEHRAN, June 6 (Reuters) - Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards are ready to provide a military escort to cargo ships trying to break Israel’s blockade of Gaza, a representative of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Sunday.

“Iran’s navy forces are ready to escort the peace flotilla to Gaza with all their powers and capabilities,” Ali Shirazi, Khamenei’s representative inside the Revolutionary Guards, was quoted as saying by the semi-official Mehr news agency.

Any intervention by the Iranian military would be considered highly provocative by Israel which accuses Iran of supplying weapons to Hamas, the Islamist movement which rules Gaza.

The Guards, with their own navy, air force and command structure separate from the regular armed forces, are seen as fiercely loyal to the values of the Islamic Republic.

“If the Supreme Leader issues an order for this then the Revolutionary Guard naval forces will do their best to secure the ships,” Shirazi said. “It is Iran’s duty to defend the innocent people of Gaza.”

“The aid flotilla planned to set sail from Lebanon is supported by Syria and Hezbollah. Its organizer, Yasser Qashlaq, called for “getting rid of the remainder of the garbage of Europe” [the Jews in Israel] and sending them back to their “homelands.””

The Saudis would love to see one of the infidels take out Iran. They fear and detest the Iranians, and do not want to see them be the power brokers of the Middle East. They do not have the capability of confronting Iran, though.

That's what I love about Muslims. Sunnis killing Shi'ites. Saudis hating Iranians. It's proof that even if there weren't any Jews to kill, they'd still be able to improvise and find someone that needed killing.

US speaks out against aid flotillas to Gaza
Published: 06.24.10, 21:03 / Israel News

The US State Department denounced the preparations to send additional aid flotillas to the Gaza Strip. It said there are mechanisms for transferring humanitarian aid to Gaza via states and organizations that wish to do so, and sending such goods directly by sea is not responsible and not efficient.

He’s the Persian Version of a “chickensh!!te”...

He knows he cannot beat anyone in a straight up fight...He’d rather get a nuke tipped missile to fly, than try to goad someone into a conventional fight...

Thats what actually makes him dangerous...But most armchair political and “military experts” analysts are to skull-blocked to see the obvious...

I (and a few others) actually fought the Iranians in the Persian Gulf back in 1987...Most people forget that little party...They were no match then, got their arses handed to them, and it will be the same if they ever get froggy again...Even worse this next time...

So once again they prove their courage and fortitude by a lack thereof...

Since Israel will now allow the ships to be unloaded and aid delivered by land, were the objective humanitarian, I'd expect to see more ships sailing, not fewer.

I (and a few others) actually fought the Iranians in the Persian Gulf back in 1987. ........................................ Supporting Saddam Hussein, by actually directing the artillery fire, under the guise of advisory instructors, against the waves of Iranians troops. The Iranians still remember that, and its one of the reasons why many support the regime. So I’ve been told by a couple of Iranians I know who fled Iran when the Shah left.

“Inside documents of the Free Gaza movement seized in the recent flotilla expose considerable discrepancies between its strategy and tactics and its public stance. The documents prove, among other things, the attempts to conceal the aid to the Hamas administration since Hamas is designated as a terrorist organization in the US.”
