French flotilla yacht leaves Greece... for Egypt

The French yacht Dignite al-Karama, which was supposed to be part of the flotilla of fools, has left Greece for Alexandria, Egypt.
One of the boats that was scheduled to take part in the Gaza-bound flotilla last week has set sail to Egypt from Greece, the Greek coastguard announced on Saturday. According to the coastguard, the Dignite/Al Karama left the tiny Greek island of Kastellorizo for the Egyptian port of Alexandria.

Authorities said that the yacht was previously prevented from leaving the Greek island after it caused damage to a vessel belonging to the Greek coastguard following a minor collision. Even though Greece banned any ships planning to taking part in the flotilla from setting sail via its ports, the Dignite/Al Karama had previously attempted to sneak away last week in defiance of the ban. It was later stopped and taken to the port of Sitia on Crete.
As long as it ends up in Egypt, we don't care. The Egyptians aren't going to let them go to Gaza either.
