Not So Fast....

Before anyone jumps to any conclusions about what happened when the Israeli navy seized a flotilla of ships carrying 'humanitarian aid' to the Gaza Strip today, bear in mind who the passengers on at least one ship were:

Speaking earlier today after the official re-naming of the Irish cargo ship bound for the under siege city of Gaza from Dundalk harbour, Sinn Féin Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD called for all Irish citizens’ support for the venture, which will aim to bring cement and other much needed supplies to the people of Gaza. The ship will set sail this evening for the Mediterranean, where it will join other boats on May 24th. Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD will hopefully join the MV Rachel Corrie here and sail to the Palestinian city of Gaza which has been under siege by Israel for over three years. On board the boats which will make up the Break the Siege flotilla, will be other human rights workers, parliamentarians, trade unionists and journalists.

Just 'humanitarian aid', eh Aengus? Your group have supplied your fellow terrorists in the middle east with weapons in the past. It is perfectly understandable that the Israelis should suspect you are doing the same again.

Israel always gets it in the neck no matter what.
The news showed the Israeli soldiers being battered with metal poles and a soldier being thrown overboard by the "peaceful humanitarians"!
