Skip to comments.'Aid Ship' Refuses to Let Israel Deliver Goods
Posted on 05/28/2011 4:22:49 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
A group of self-proclaimed peace activists bringing dual-purpose materials to Gaza have refused to deliver the goods preferring that they remain at sea rather than be transported through Israel.
The activists are aboard a ship carrying 4.6 miles of sewage pipes. Materials such as pipes have been allowed into Gaza only under international supervision in recent years, as Hamas and other terrorist groups often use the pipes in manufacturing short-range rockets to fire on Israeli civilians (pictured right).
However, under an agreement reached with the help of the Egyptian and Malaysian governments, the goods could be delivered to Gaza through the Kerem Shalom crossing in southern Israel.
Activists, who have claimed that the pipes are a vital humanitarian necessity, have refused the offer, admitting that their goal is not to provide aid, but to defy the IDF naval blockade on Hamas. Delivering the aid through a second party would be against the principle of the team's mission, which is to break the illegal Israeli siege of Gaza, they said in a statement released Thursday.
They have dubbed their project the Spirit of Rachel Corrie Mission, after a United States activist who died while attempting to stop an IDF bulldozer as it destroyed weapons smuggling tunnels in Gaza.

I guess these guys haven’t heard that Egypt opened Rafah?
Israel should commence Project Pancake on their asses.
Why would Gazans want or even need sewer pipes? The whole place is a sh*thole because they like it that way.
And during the period of time where Israel has developed so many world-class medical, electronic, etc. devices, these people still need help to figure out a freaking sewage system. Primitive savages versus God’s people. And which side is Obama on????
I was thinking Corrie before getting down to the reading the name of these haters.
Any chance they checked the final will and testament or with the family to see if they wanted a load of sewer pipes, or missle launch tubes used to harm or kill civillians, or whatever, named as such?
I'm sure there is no chance the naming is for PR purposes since these groups are only out to help...
Well he did tell the adoring Ozombies that he’d ‘stand with the Muslims should the winds turn against them’. They got what they wanted and Israel suffers for it.
(Sounds a lot like sewage to me...)
I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING...BRILLIANT!
thanks...I needed that today!
I am dogsitting for a friend and found out today she has fleas...took her to the vet, etc, been cleaning and launering all day.Good God!
Sometimes I wish they would just blow these “aid” ships out of the water.
Probably why I haven’t recieved a call back from my application for the position of Special Peace Envoy for the Middle East.
“I guess these guys havent heard that Egypt opened Rafah?”
Yeah, but they were all packed up and ready to go, so they decided to do it anyway. For Rachel Corrie, for sewer pipes, for liberty! So that all Ghaza will think of them when they fluush their toilets.
Your friend has fleas?
Give her a bath with flea soap, it may not get rid
of the fleas but you’ll both be that much friendlier.
Breaking the blockade would mean getting the goods
to Gaza any way possible, what they want is
...preferring that they remain at sea rather than be transported through Israel. The activists are aboard a ship carrying 4.6 miles of sewage pipes... Hamas and other terrorist groups often use the pipes in manufacturing short-range rockets to fire on Israeli civilians (pictured right).At least if the boat springs a leak they'll be able to drain the water out. Too bad. ;')
It’s for the chirrens’ sewer pipes.
