The Rachel Corrie, a solidarity ship, sets sail from Ireland to deliver humanitarian supplies to the Gaza Strip which is struggling with a three-year Israeli-imposed blockade.
The 1,200-ton cargo ship -- part of an eight-vessel flotilla dubbed the "Freedom Flotilla" -- is also taking peace activists from nearly 40 countries, and will be joined by ships from Turkey and Greece.
The ship, which departed from Ireland on Saturday, will bring aid materials such as cement, paper, medical equipment, school supplies and several other materials to the Gazans.
The Freedom Flotilla is organized by an international coalition that includes the Free Gaza Movement, the Turkish Humanitarian Aid Foundation, the European Committee Against the Siege and several Malaysian, Greek and Irish institutions.
The ship is named after Rachel Corrie, an American peace activist who was killed by an Israeli army bulldozer in Gaza in 2003.

The Harpoon is an all-weather, over-the-horizon, anti-ship missile system, developed and manufactured by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing Integrated Defense Systems). In 2004, Boeing delivered the 7,000th Harpoon unit since the weapon's introduction in 1977.

Follow the link for disgusting comments of Islamic Swine and their sympathizers. I wonder if these folks would have recommended resupplying Hitler. The truth is that the Israelis obviously let food, medicine, and water into Gaza, as otherwise we would see all sorts of pictures of "innocent" Hamas children with distended bellies. Instead we see them in costumes intended to glorify suicide bombers.

Maybe Barry Hussein Soetoro Obama will order the US Navy to commission a ship called the USS Rachel Corrie? What a fitting honor for the empty headed nitwit from Evergreen State college, filled with hate for Israel and love for Arab terrorists, who was too stupid to get out of the way of a bulldozer. I love Rachel Corrie threads on FR because it constantly reminds me of what stupid liberal parents and the public education system can do to a child: turn her into a radical, America-hating, Israel-hating moron. Rachel Corrie got exactly what she deserved. I’d give a medal to the soldier driving the bulldozer who ran her over!

A covert torpedo leaves no trace and can be blamed on poor Italian naval skills.
