The Flotilla 2011 season has ended. The score is Israel: 2; Flotilla: 0
This year’s humanitarian operation to bring aid to the starving population of Gaza, consisted of:
- 1 small yacht
- 17 people
- NO AID
- No food
- No building materials
- No medicine (not even the nearly expired and expired type they brought last year)
On the bright side – they didn’t bring any weapons (at least from what I have heard so far).
Of the 17 on board, one has to wonder how many of them were journalists and if they will report accurately that there was NO violence involved.
- Please identify yourself.
- Where did you come from?
- What are you carrying? To which they answered honestly – nothing
- Where are you going? Well, they said Gaza – but they’ll end up in Ashdod where their cargo will…oh, wait, they didn’t bring any cargo.
To get out of Greece – they lied and told authorities they were heading to Egypt.
So – what was accomplished? Not a heck of a lot, that’s for sure. And for the record, I’m not sure you can call a single small ship a flotilla – seems about as inaccurate as the rest of the information they have been telling the world.
