SS Free Gaza and SS Liberty - a deflated balloon

It looks like the high seas spectacle with bloodthirsty Zionists sending the peaceful provo protesters to the bottom has not happened, to the chagrin of some expectant observers.

So, 200 hearing aids for children and 5,000 balloons reached their destination, and IDF managed not to turn this festive event into another PR disaster.


And here is a sampler from the eagerly expecting Guardian:

A standoff with the Israeli navy and the arrests of the activists if they tried to enter Gaza had been expected.

In a statement issued as they departed yesterday, the activists said they would lodge a legal protest against any attempt by the Israelis to arrest them.

"If Israel chooses to forcibly stop and search our ships, we will not forcibly resist," a statement said.

"If we are arrested and brought to Israel, we will protest and prosecute our kidnapping in the appropriate forums ... it is our purpose to show the power that ordinary citizens have when they organise to stand against injustice."
The shame of premature ejaculation...
