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.
You guys are cracking me up!!!
HA..no its the friend’s dog. Wait till he gets back to pick up the dog! When I checked out at the vet’s..I said to them”I am so mad that he left me with the dog and its got fleas. I’m gonna KILL him when he gets back!!!”
( I was waiting for someone in the waiting room to call the police..ha.)
Don’t be too hard on yourself, Tex...
Actually, the leftist press wants us to pity the pallees, so that is the view that they put out. In reality, pallees are not exactly starving...
You can clearly find rubble and devestation videos of Gaza (in neglected areas, after the intifadas/wars) just like seeing slums and "warzones" of the Bronx/Detroit. BUT, there is another life in Gaza, of shops, open air markets, plenty of food, fat people, etc. Click the link above, and peruse for others.
Here come the pancake jokes....
Here come the pancake jokes....
Named their mission the Spirit of Rachael Corrie
but it fell flat...
Well played, sir.
If the friends dog had fleas, then the friends
apartment has fleas and the friend has fleas too.
Sorry that’s just the way it works and if it isn’t
treated right in a few weeks it will start all over
I recommend he torches his friend’s place before he gets back. It’s the only way to be sure. Think of it as a public service.
No, you are absolutely right. right now I am soooo mad at my friend. First the dog suffers, and he is NOT taking care of the problem.
When he gets back I will give him a piece of my mind.Treating fleas is no easy thing and requires effort and dilligence and he is not doing that. It just made me so mad today.
guess no good deed goes unpunished.But that is the LAST time that dog is EVER allowed even to visit!
122mm with leveling bubbles and sights.
Their tactics, innovation and aggressiveness never change.
Let us fly! said the Flea.
Let us flee! said the Fly.
So they flew through a flaw in the Flue.
One SEAL (or more accurately, the Israeli Navy version of a SEAL) with a limpet mine would make quick work of this ship.
And when the international press comes knocking, Israel could just innocently speculate as to what type of aid holes a ship’s cargo hold, sinking it.
More like what kind of sewer pipes have a high order detonation capable of flattening a couple of square city blocks is more likely . 8^>
S’is richtig? Ascension auf deutch heist “Himmelfart”? Ken ich nor yiddish.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Because the objective is unfettered access. They could deliver the goods through Egypt.
