Libya Coming to Gaza's Rescue

There are not enough words to capture my joy and applause at Libya's actions. I think every country in the world should send ship after ship, day after day.

"Aid boat from Libya said on way to Gaza; Israeli blockade to be tested anew" by Ibrahim Barzak, Associated Press | November 27, 2008

GAZA CITY - A boat loaded with humanitarian aid has left Libya and will try to reach Gaza despite an Israeli naval blockade, a Palestinian lawmaker in Gaza said yesterday, raising the possibility of a confrontation between an Arab vessel and Israeli sailors.

Independent legislator Jamal Khoudary said the ship left the Libyan port of Zawara carrying 3,000 tons of food, medicine, blankets, and powdered milk. He said it would arrive in Gaza early next week.... The Libyan boat follows three other vessels that have sailed to Gaza from Cyprus since August to break the Israeli blockade, which was imposed last year to put pressure on the territory's Hamas government.

And that is the very definition of terrorism:

"[An] act of terrorism, means any activity that (A) involves a violent act or an act dangerous to human life that is a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States or of any State; and (B) appears to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by assassination or kidnapping."

The earlier boats, organized by the private US-based Free Gaza advocacy group, carried international activists and some aid supplies. Israel's navy let them through, saying it wanted to deny the protesters the publicity they would gain from a confrontation.

Translation: Israel knows they would be completely exposed for the monsters they are had they stopped aid shipments; that's why the world should send one boat after another!

The Libyan vessel, however, presents a far bigger test. It would be the first significant shipment of goods to reach Gaza. It also is the first time a country, and an Arab one at that, has sought to defy the blockade....

Must have the Israelis quaking in their boots; what's next, Muslim unity?

And look at the beauty of this last paragraph of propaganda:

Israel imposed the blockade after Hamas, an Islamic group hostile to Israel, violently seized power in Gaza in June 2007.

First there is the obligatory "Islamic group hostile to Israel" description; however, the "violently seized power" totally ignores -- ONCE AGAIN -- that HAMAS WON LEGITIMATE ELECTIONS!!!!

You know, if the AP made that error once, one might be inclined to dismiss it; however, it is EVERY SINGLE ARTICLE!!!

The closure was tightened in response to rocket barrages by Palestinian militants into Israel. Egypt has also kept its crossing with Gaza shut.... --more--"

Yup, ONCE AGAIN nothing about DEAD PALESTINIANS or those needing medical care!!!! It is just rockets into Israel (and who the hell knows who is responsible for that; I suspect USrael's Fatah agents and Israeli settlers. CUI BONO?).
