One for the good guys.
You might recall the story I posted about the mega-flotilla that was being prepared to launch against Israel in May. Well, it looks like Cyprus doesn’t want any part of that armada of filth.
Cyprus is the first country to officially declare it will not cooperate with efforts by various anti-Israel movements and countries to send flotillas to violate Israel’s blockade of Gaza. Good on them.
That doesn’t mean the terrorists and their Leftist enablers aren’t going to keep trying. According to Israel-hating Reuters, it sounds like there is still a mega-flotilla out there in the making, but at least it doesn’t look like they will be setting sail from Cyprus, and for that Reuters and Leftists are very disappointed.
The phony ‘Freedom Flotilla’ of last year was a major story, as the world’s entire media set upon Israel like ravenous wolves before knowing any of the facts. Soon, however, it became clear that the Mavi Marmara was an ambush, and that the ‘righteous peace activists’ were nothing but gangs of blood-thirsty terrorists.
For a ghastly idea of what the Israelis faced when they boarded the boat, read the testimonies of the Israeli commandos that were ambushed, and see what kind of savage animals they faced.
Arutz Sheva - President Demetris Christofias of Cyprus assured President Shimon Peres Monday in Jerusalem that his nation would stand strong in its support of Israel.
The president of Cyprus, who arrived this week on his first state visit to Israel, is leading a delegation of 60 Cypriot business people. The two presidents met with news media following their meeting.
Cyprus is the first country to officially declare it will not cooperate with efforts by various anti-Israel movements and countries to send flotillas to violate Israel’s blockade of Gaza. Peres thanked his counterpart for also being the first country to take concrete steps to prevent flotillas from leaving its ports.
“Terror activities in Gaza are unacceptable,” stated Christofias, “and therefore we have prevented the flotillas from leaving.” (more >>)
