Mavi Marmara pulls out of flotilla

The IHH terror organization and its flagship Mavi Marmara will not take part in the upcoming flotilla of fools. They claim it's because of 'technical reasons.'
Speaking from Greece, Free Gaza member and International Solidarity Movement co-founder Adam Shapiro said the “Turkish participation is obviously something that we want to have as part of the overall flotilla but if tomorrow they decide to postpone [their participation] then we will continue.”

Shapiro said all of the other ships taking part in the flotilla are still finishing their preparations and are planning to set sail at the end of the month regardless of a report in the Turkish press on Wednesday that humanitarian relief foundation IHH is considering dropping out of the flotilla to concentrate on the Syrian refugee issue in southern Turkey.

Shapiro said that as opposed to reports that as many as 25 ships would take part in the flotilla, there are only 10 that are scheduled to sail later this month, with around 300 activists from dozens of countries taking part.
The IHH is apparently at least smart enough to recognize an exercise in futility. Heh.

Let the lawsuits keep coming. No sane maritime company is going to ensure the flotilla.

Let's see whether at month's end, the flotilla of fools will still take to the high seas.
