Gaza mega-flotilla shooting for late June

Flotilla passenger

I’ve been keeping you updated on the promised mega-flotilla being put together by the unholy alliance of Leftists and terrorists (see below links).

Seems now the floating pond scum have decided on a date, the 3rd week in June. Originally, they planned to arrive at about this time, Israel Independence Day, or as the Jew-haters refer to it, ‘the nakba’, the disaster.

But, too bad for them, they couldn’t get their act together in time, and so had to push back the date.

The “Freedom Flotilla” coalition said Marseille, France, was one of various European departure points for the convoy, and that it welcomed “the recent addition” of a Swiss-German boat. Most of the participants, of course, are Eurotrash, radical Leftists who are upset that Hitler had failed, but are hoping that the Fakestinians, all of whom supported Hitler in World War II, let’s not forget, will succeed in finishing the job.

Weapons used to attack Israeli soldiers

The coalition said organizers will head to Strasbourg, France, on Tuesday to seek the support of anti-Israel European parliamentarians, something Europe has more than plenty of.

The nutjobs did not say how many boats were participating, but IHH, an Islamonazi aid group in Turkey, has said it expects the convoy to be at least twice as big as the one that attempted to reach Gaza last year, which would mean about 12 ships.

Ynet - An aid flotilla will depart for the Gaza Strip in the third week of June, just over a year after a similar flotilla was raided by Israeli forces, leaving nine people dead on a Turkish boat, activists said Monday.

A coalition of pro-Palestinian groups, most of them based in Europe, announced the date in a statement after a meeting in Paris. The unfolding plans for the new flotilla set up a possible confrontation with Israel, which has vowed to stop any attempt to breach its sea blockade of Gaza.

Activists had originally planned to depart on May 31, the anniversary of the botched Israeli commando raid. The delayed departure appears at least partly related to Turkey’s plans for parliamentary elections on June 12.

Turkish activists, who are in contact with the government but say they operate independently, had said they wanted to leave after the vote for fear any controversy could disrupt the election debate.

Turkish officials, who have stepped up criticism of Israel since the three-week war in Gaza that ended in early 2009, have indicated that the Turkish activists are free to sail from home waters.

[...] Israel eased its land blockade of Gaza amid an international uproar over the raid. But it says its blockade policy prevents weapons from reaching Iran-backed Hamas militants who violently seized control of the territory in 2007.

Israeli military officials have confirmed that preparations are under way to stop any new flotilla while avoiding casualties, and that they would use different tactics this time around.
