Of the six ships in the flotilla which announced their intentions to break Israel’s legal maritime blockade of Hamas-controlled Gaza, five were redirected without incident. The one vessel, Turkish-operated Mavi Marmara, was the only ship which ambushed Israeli soldiers. Over the past 10 days, it has been obvious that the dozens of “peace activists” came ready and eager for a violent skirmish and were thus anything but peace loving individuals.
After contents of the ship were unloaded, it has been discovered that the Mavi Marmara did not contain a single ounce of aid. Not one box of food or medicine for the people of Gaza.With all of the lamentations, wailing and grief poured out for the nine terrorists who bought the farm, it is now indisputable that the Mavi Marmara was never about "aid" for the so-called "Palestinians." It was a war effort against Israel, an ambush. This fact will matter little, however, to the Islam-Firsters among the Democrats, the Leftists and Paleoconservatives, who just want Israel to disappear.
