Self-hating Jews' 'flotilla'

A boat carrying eight passengers and crew departed on Sunday from Cyprus for Gaza carrying aid for the fancy hotels and restaurants in the 'overcrowded strip' (whose population density is less than several major cities around the world). What makes this boat unusual is that its passengers and crew are self-hating Jews from Israel, Europe and the United States.
Reuven Moshkovitz, 82, one of those on board the Irene and a Holocaust survivor told AFP she felt duty-bound to attempt the voyage, which is expected to take around 36 hours.

"It is a holy duty for a survivor like me to protect against the persecuting and closing and oppressing of so many people, including 800,000 children in Gaza," she said.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has previously warned that Israel would intercept any ship nearing Gaza, which is run by the Islamist movement Hamas.
For those who are wondering why there has been a change of heart in Cyprus about allowing these ships to sail from there to Gaza, there hasn't been.
The boat, named Irene, left the port of Famagusta in the Turkish-held north of the divided eastern Mediterranean island early afternoon carrying eight activists, including three crew, and two journalists.
Arutz Sheva has a slightly different version and some interesting facts about Famagusta.
A ship manned by ten Jewish Israelis, along with activists from Europe and the U.S., has left Cyprus in an attempt to run the IDF blockade of Gaza. The ship left the port of Famagusta in northern Turkish-occupied Cyprus, and is set to arrive in the area of Gaza later this week.

After the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974, nearly all of the Greek residents of the town fled, and they have not been allowed to return. Journalists are also banned from the former Greek quarter of Famagusta, which has been sealed off. The former Greek residents of Famagusta were replaced by tens of thousands of Turkish settlers.
Gee, doesn't that violate the Geneva Convention by 'settling' the occupying countries civilians in the occupied country? You mean the Turks have been disclosed as hypocrites yet again? Hmmm.

And it doesn't bother Jewish anti-Semites the irony of sailing from a part of Cyprus whose Turkish occupation is recognized by no one to Gaza, where there is no humanitarian issue to keep it on the world agenda.

I wouldn't be surprised if they end up docking in El Arish.

I repeat:

Blow the main ship to bits - no survivors - and communicate to the rest of the boats that they have 30 seconds to start pivoting 180 degrees before they, too, become shark chum.

Actually, a guy named Bert had a great idea he posted at Israpundit:

This is a great opportunity if only Israel can think positively. Step one – capture these Jews and place them in secret detention. No Red Cross visits and NO communication – the same as with Gilead Shalit. They get released when Shalit is released in good condition. They would be allowed to only sent messages of appeal to Hamas to release Shalit.

All their families and supporters on the entire Jewish left would now have one choice. The ONLY way to free these Jewish traitors is to first get Shalit freed. Now let them experience some of the suffering and frustration that the Family of Shalit is undergoing. This would be a peaceful and constructive solution.

is this the same reuven moskovitz? if it is, once he gets into israeli custody, expel him from the country

there is nothing more disgusting than a person who claims to be a survivor, yet spent the war in safety.

i respect my elders, but this man is a piece of dreck

if it is not the same person, i apologize...
