Israel navy intercepts first of 3-vessel flotilla heading to break Gaza blockade

An international flotilla of activists bent on breaking Israel’s maritime blockade of the Gaza Strip set out on July 21 from Palermo, Sicily. The first was intercepted on Sunday by the Israeli navy dozens of kilometers from the Gaza Strip and towed to Ashdod port. Forty pro-Palestinian activists from 15 countries are believed to be aboard the three vessels.

        The whole confusion starts from the type of flotilla we talk about.
        I say these are definitely and absolutely clear submarines and must stay deep underwater until the occupied territory of Gaza is liberated.

    Ups, I see a problem here! These boats are floating half in the water and half in the air, this is not Ok,

    Archimedes said “submerged ….is acted upon by an upward force the magnitude of which is equal to the weight of the fluid …” Submerged shall be!

      They are coming to kill and not for any peaceful purpose. Do not remove the occupants. Sink just one of the idiots boats and this game would stop overnight.

    Apartheid Gaza, Islamofascist Hamass HQ.

    Hamass which
    – executes gays by pushing them off rooftops
    – Which executes suspected “collaborators” and drags their bodies behind motorcycles driven through the streets of Gaza as a warning to others.
    – Which uses women and children as Human Shields
    – Which uses hospitals and mosques as weapons depots

    Anyone who supports Hamass supports terrorism, honor killings, human shields, War Crimes, Crimes Against Humanity

        Stop using that term outright. Replace with “Arabs”. That’s what they are. Arabs.

      The Chinese Horoscope says 2018 is the FIRE MONKEY year. Of course, this is why monkeys are so agitated in Gaza and why they fly incendiary kites!

      But then, Chinese Horoscope says 2019 is the Year of the Earth Pig, this is when they will eat all the shit they disseminated.

    The international press always talks about the Israeli blockade of Gaza.. They never mention the reason why, ie to prevent gazan terrorism. They never mention the Egypt blocade of gaza.

    Israel must have international media mentioning these things and put everything into proper perspective.

        Every single aspect of the Islamic culture is twisted, sick, and hellish.
        But in rest they are good German citizens.

    “pro-Palestinian activists” – type error. Should be “pro-Terrorist activists”

    A Jewish man on board the flotilla, who’s lived in Israel after the six day war, tells his truth:
    https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2018/07/22/568874/Gazabound-aid-flotilla

    An aid flotilla is heading to the Gaza Strip to deliver much-needed help to the coastal enclave. Activists are trying to highlight the plight of Palestinians. Onboard the flotilla is a Jewish man who used to live in Israel. His story sheds light on the racist policies of the Israeli regime against Palestinians.

      Lier! Help is delivered by Israel every day tens of tons. If it was to have a flotilla delivering once 5 years a bag of whatever, all people in Gaza would be dead by now.
      DAMN YOU ABOMINABLE LIER !

        Why are you so nervous? The brother Oh The horrah is a brave Muslim, he is entitled and even OBLIGED to lie to the dihmmi like you.

        The great Mohammed blessed his name allows as to lie freely to dihmmis, to trick them to get closer and shake hands, while preparing the big sharp knife we have hidden in the other hand.

      You stupid dirty lier!
      It was the Oslo accords who decided with Arafat signature to have Gaza as is, with Egypt and Israel taking care of the borders, including these on the water. Gaza is not a state, people there are not capable of taking care of their every day business. A flotilla has to ask Israel or Egypt permission to pass by or in. You are a lier.

      “much needed help”? up to 1,000 truckloads a day of consumer goods enter gaza from israel, when the arabs stop destroying the border crossing. how many boxes of expired medicines and broken wheelchairs would even fit on that sailboat?

      this is nothing but a publicity stunt, to get more weapons for hamas, and to turn public opinion against israel’s legitimate arms blockade of gaza.

      go suck on a camel, troll.

    I’m sick and tired to hear about “Palestinians” every single time and since decades going back in time to Munich ’72 olympics when they killed the games. They are crazy, no dialogue is possible.

      Pal-e-SWINIANS are not crazy.

      They are EVIL, like their prophet and the ayatoolas of Fascist Iran and Al Qada, ISIS, Taliban, Muslim Brotherhood, Boko Haram, Al Nusra, …

    The simple act of taking this vessel Ashdod illustrates that the IDF and its navy Exercise the Highest level of Restraint by any Armed Forces in the World, bar none. Any other Country that values its borders would have sunk it, mined the area, or simply set the boat afire without a second thought.

    So the next time the UN, UNESCO, HWR, BBC, CNN, or other piece of garbage NGO’s/groups chirp off about moral equivalency at the Gaza fence line, push this into their face and tell them to bugger off.
