Free Gaza - Update

It seems the seas are not co-operating with the Free Gaza Movement:

Gaza 'siege-breaking boats' delayed

A storm has kept two boats carrying 44 pro-Palestinian activists from setting off for Gaza on Wednesday, delaying their journey until Friday, the Free Gaza Movement, which organized the vessels, said.

Well - it's Friday - I hope they are on their way!

hey maggie: there was news today that Israel is considering taking action to halt the boat.

Israel may use force to halt boat trying to break Gaza siege

"Defense officials favor forcefully blocking two boats which a group of U.S.-based activists plan to sail to Gaza to protest what they call "the Israeli siege on the Strip," Haaretz has learned.

According to the Foreign Ministry, Israel is within its rights to use force against the seafarers. "
