It was all a public relations stunt

Gazans expressed disappointment this evening after Israel allowed two boats full of 'left-wing activists' to reach the shore near Gaza City and the boats had more people than supplies. What the Gazans fail to understand is that, as usual, this is about 'the cause' (of destroying Israel) and not about improving their lives. That's why the 'Palestinians' are still 'refugees' sixty years after the State of Israel declared its independence. This isn't about finding a humanitarian solution for the 'Palestinians.' It's about the 'cause' of destroying Israel.
"Many people thought these boats will make a significant contribution to break the siege, not only politically but also in terms of brining in goods, equipment, food, and medicine," he said. "However, once it turned out these boats contain too little food and mostly activists…some people left the beach disappointed."

Hundreds of Gazans reportedly received the leftist activists at the beach. A Hamas source told Ynet the initiative was proven successful, but added that "the Arab and Muslim world should draw lessons and learn from those dozens of activists, because they risked their lives at sea for the sake of Strip residents and against the siege."

The source also slammed Egypt for being "an inseparable part of the siege."
You will note that the 'activists' were nearly all cushy westerners: Americans, Europeans and one pseudo-Israeli. Look at the biographies - the only Arabs are those residing in the West.

Israel decided to let the boats reach the shore rather than have a media-covered confrontation on the high seas. Somehow I doubt the Russians would have had a problem with the media coverage. Hopefully there were no weapons on board, and hopefully Israel can ensure that the 'activists' don't make it into Israel proper.

I wonder how they plan to leave.



The 'Palestinians' found time to fire two more Kassam rockets at Israel's Negev while greeting the 'activists.' Fortunately, no one was hurt.

These "activists" should stick to wearing Che shirts and stinking up college campuses.

Its just as I predicted, Carl. The Olmert-Barak-Livni-Yishai government cares more about a good headline than defending Israel!

Let them stay in Gaza. Actually make them stay in Gaza. Refuse to let them leave. Let them experience the whole Gaza way of life.

Israel could even make a condition that they release Gilad Schalit in exchange for allowing these idiots to leave Gaza.

I'll give these moonbats 1 week before they hold a press conference and demand the Israelis to let them leave.
