Terror State Will Face A Huge Problem In A Few Days

"Three ships carrying Turkish activists have set off from Turkey to Gaza on Saturday, the biggest effort by international aid groups to break the Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip.The biggest of the nine ships from Istanbul is heading to the south western city of Antalya where two other Turkish ships will be waiting to join the convoy.The seaport was overwhelmed by thousands of well-wishers, who had come to show their support for the people of Gaza.The three ships will then travel to the waters off Athens and Crete to rendezvous with the other six, before making the four-day journey to Gaza.The second ship to join the Freedom Flotilla en route to Gaza left Istanbul Saturday afternoon, joining eight other boats from three countries carrying 10,000 tons of aid for Gaza's residents, supplies embargoed by Israel.

A statement issued by the Freedom Flotilla's organizers said the latest ship is sponsored by the Turkish humanitarian organization or IHH and will carry 600 passengers to Gaza as part of the "blockade busting" flotilla.Boats will meet in the Mediterranean, then turn toward Gaza to arrive at its beseiged slice of beachfront by the end of May."

Gazans have been busy preparing the port for the flotilla's arrival, deepening the harbor and using rubble from bombed out buildings as construction material. This is by far the biggest operation operation yet to try to break the murderous blockade.

Israel has vowed to stop the fleet from reaching Gaza, and foreign ministry officials told ambassadors from some of the forty countries involved not to try it. Here's where it gets sticky. The fascists absolutely cannot allow the siege of Gaza to be lifted because of the threat of a good example. Boats that have tried before have been fired upon, rammed and boarded, and participants have spent a week imprisoned. But the big problem the Israelis face this time is that some of the ships are from a NATO country, and article 5 in the NATO charter states in no uncertain terms an attack on one member is an attack on them all.

Israel has been preparing for this for some time with a large naval force off the Gazan coast. I'm guessing they'll forcefully turn the flotilla away, public outcry be damned, because when it comes to the US's bestest little terror buddy, NATO comes in a distant second, and Uncle Sam will cover for them. At the same time expect some very ugly diversions somewhere in the world that takes the spotlight off the zionist snitfest and allows corrupted media to turn their attention someplace other than the suffering Palestinians in Gaza.
