Gaza flotilla going around in circles

This is too good to check, which is good because I don't have time to check it (Hat Tip: Shaul R):
It seems that most of Gaza bound ships are riding around in circles off shore Cyprus.

east... no 180 degree turn, west, no I changed my mind, east... How long until 700 passengers start eating food they were supposed to bring to Gaza? It has been days, and they have been wasting fuel riding back and forth near cyprus giving interviews for the media.

world media has been talking about them for a week, but they haven't moved 100 miles from cyprus. Either they have worst navigators ever, or they have no intent reaching Gaza and are just riding off shore cyprus as a publicity stunt.

Mavi Marmara, main ship in the convoy, seems to be moving, but doing only 3.6kt (very slow) and they are going the wrong way, they seem to have missed Gaza by 1000 nm and are on their way to Lebanon.

hi Carl.
I would say even if they can't deliver their goods,they are streching their media exposure and that's not good.

I have read that some of the boats are having engine trouble.

Could Mossad be undercover as Greek ship mechanics? ;))

Which goes to show it was a PR stunt aimed at embarrassing Israel than a genuine effort to help the Palestinians. And the Palestinians need friends like Western moonbats like they need enemies.

Heh

Is this US war ship going in direction of Israel? Will Obama stop the "Rachel Corrie" ship?
