    So QQ, now that I realize you are “across the pond”, is this receiving substantial coverage, or just your own internet research? I used to live in London (until I was deported) and was impressed with the coverage as compared to the US as well as the knowledge of political happenings around the world. Something most in the US don’t bother to educate themselves on.

    Well there he is! The anti-semitic flase prophet himself… funding the Israel Law Centre, who in 2008-2009ish claimed the holocast was only propaganda lies to keep America in line.
    We’re doomed if we can’t overthrow these mother fuckers!

    There’s a reason for leaving from Greece. If you don’t veer left or right, you can land on the shores of Gaza without going into Egyptian waters or Israeli waters…..
    In Cynthia McKinney’s case, Israeli war ships torpedoed their boat anyway, and left them to sink and die.
    The only reason we get to hear this tale, is because they did not indeed die, and mostly because an “international CNN journalist”…. Was able to get his voice heard on European radio, telling the real story of how Israel is destroying ANYONE who brings aid to the suffering masses of Gaza.

  17. Moon Shadow says:

    Your links are better than ANY coverage I’ve seen. Keep it coming. Don’t think we’ll hear about this in the mainstream until Israel attacks again, so it’s nice to see the events unfold, and hear the TRUTH about what is happening.
    Greece is fucked and is bending over for anyone and everyone. Should have left from Sicily, would love to see Israel try to fuck with the Sicilians!
    So many heroes. Any blogs, facebook or tweets you’ve seen from the heroes on the ships?

    “War and fighting are NOT instinctual to the human spirit……..It has been programmed into us.”
    Word up Tip! This can all end NOW, right fucking NOW!!!
    The ONLY way, I mean the ONLY FUCKING way this is EVER going to stop is when the collective comes to the consensus that the PATRIARCHY has done this. Done it ALL!!
    The breeding males need to sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up and SERVE the matriarchy. Acknowledge they fucked up, ask for forgiveness and put the guns down, NOW!!
    BARR 2012!!! SHE’LL FIX THIS SHIT, NOW!!!

    My mom was tweaked for her entire life because of her young experience in a war torn place. Aside from the plain o’l brutality of war, she also suffered from starvation which took place in the form of “sanctions”…lasting over 5 years.
    She lived her life with PTSD and raised all of us under those mental faculties.
    My point is, does anyone know how long this US supported war in the mid east has been going on and better yet, does anyone know how long these country’s have been sanctioned?
    Since Desert storm over 20 years ago.
    People, this is the same war.
    20 yrs.
    Packaged differently, but the same.
    Can you believe it’s been going on this long?
    Can you believe that we have allowed the innocent civilians of a country to suffer starvation and more for over 20 years?
    Does anyone know what this does to a decade of people? What kind of children are going to be raised by traumatized damaged souls?
    Go see the traumatized people from Reagan’s “operation condor”….of Guatemala..
    20 years later…the people sooooo broken,
    …they do not smile….
    No matter how it is packaged, war is the decimation of souls and the almighty spirit…..
    ask an American Native, they would know.
    War and fighting are NOT instinctual to the human spirit……..It has been programmed into us.

    Women can stop this blood shed.
    Bravo Alice Walker
    Boo Hillary

  22. Tippy -Lite says:

    and I’m not trying to change the topic of this thread because Gaza and Peace are very important topics to dicuss.

  23. Tippy -Lite says:

    “Despite the intervening woman’s movement, the results are very similar to those found when the same question was asked of Americans in 1941.”
    so if that shit is true, it’s only because the Bush Admin rolled back womens rights for 8 years.
    I heard a “Catholic Doctors for Choice” speak at the capitol some years back, and this young doctor spoke and said that in med school for instance, medical students were then (during bush) receiving hundreds of hours of schooling on “vasodilatation” and related studies to be better prepared for the ‘Viagra sales’ that would later be expected to consume their practice. He also said that women’s studies and needs which most people understand as far more complex, were being cut down to half that of their classes for men’s health studies…..
    Just sayin

    Complaint against US boat threatens Gaza voyage
    http://www.maannews.net/eng/ViewDetails.aspx?ID=399764
    *****
    “Israel has pulled out the stops in trying to get the flotilla to stop before it begins by threatening the Greek economy,“ said Ann Wright, a retired State Department official and former Army colonel who is the main organizer of the US boat to Gaza. Sitting in the lobby of the noisy Athens hotel, she added, “Greece is caught in the middle. There is tremendous public support for the flotilla, but the government is getting pounded by the Israelis.” Not naming her sources, Wright, visibly exhausted from a year of organizing for the flotilla, contended that “Israel is going to try to sink the Greek economy if they allow the flotilla to sail from Greek ports.”

    The French ship to Gaza, ‘The Dignity’, has just left Corsica. French MEP is on board, other VIPs TBC. French Government did not block the boat. This is 1st victory for the flotilla. The flotilla has begun!

  37. Hillary Clinton is giving Israel the green light to attack this flotilla.

  38. I will request an interview with Alice Walker — this is huge to me.
    Yes, something not good may happen and we will all be bearing witness.

  39. I sure hope Alice Walker gives government the finger. I can’t imagine her doing anything else.
    Government doesn’t currently have the solutions, so a peaceful attempt like this one is okay in my book.
    One must gamble, occasionally, to win.

  40. So Americans are protesting restrictive policies in international(?) waters. I’d be curious to know who these people are. Anne Curry? Barbara Walters? 60 Minutes? Let’s get on it!

  41. My common sense is don’t tell my neighbors how to run their lives.
