Rachel Corrie Boarded

After conflicting stories all night, international media and the Israeli government report now that the Israelis have boarded the Rachel Corrie.

Around 1 a.m. EST, Gaza observers on the beach were still reporting watching the ship headed for port.

In the meantime, the United States yesterday called the Gaza blockade “unsustainable”:

(Reuters) – The White House said on Friday Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip was unsustainable and urged a Gaza aid vessel sent by pro-Palestinian activists to divert to an Israeli port to reduce the risk of violence.

“We are working urgently with Israel, the Palestinian Authority, and other international partners to develop new procedures for delivering more goods and assistance to Gaza,” said Mike Hammer, spokesman for the White House National Security Council.

“The current arrangements are unsustainable and must be changed. For now, we call on all parties to join us in encouraging responsible decisions by all sides to avoid any unnecessary confrontations,” Hammer said in a statement.

  1. As I mentioned previously…

    No casualties were reported amongst the passengers or the military forces. Not even a splinter.

    There were no incidents of violence because, unlike the Mavi Marmara, there were no violent thugs with terrorist connections and sympathies on the Rachel Corrie.

    Hopefully this will provide a valuable lesson for all.

    “In the meantime, the United States yesterday called the Gaza blockade “unsustainable” “

    While this may or may not be true, if this is the general consensus, then other ideas are going to have to be implemented that will guarantee Israel’s security.

    The problem here is that Israel refuses to acquiesce to the UN and the Third World and commit national suicide.

    If the international community (IE, the UN and the Third World countries) are intent on depriving Israel of every right to defend itself, Israel is fully within it’s rights to tell the UN and the Third World to go frak itself…

    And I and many more rational people who actually think for themselves, will be right there, cheering Israel on..

  2. What Michaele said.
    I, like all other rational people who actually think for themselves, feel that Israel has shown enormous restraint in not using nuclear weapons in this situation.

  3. Izquierdo,

    feel that Israel has shown enormous restraint in not using nuclear weapons in this situation.

    I am sure you made that tongue in cheek, but there is a serious element to that.

    Do you think that Israel would not use her nuclear arsenal if she were facing annihilation? Another holocaust?

    Is it in the interests of the international community to try so hard to gut Israel so much that she might think that’s her only way out?? I don’t think so…

    Where does all this Israel hatred come from?

    I shouldn’t think for myself so much.

    Au Contra’ire… It’s a habit that you should get into and exercise early and often..

    Who wants a discussion with someone who just parrots sound bites and simply follows the crowd??

    BOOOORRRRRIIIIINNNGGGGGG 😀
