Cynthia McKinney takes on Israeli Navy Once Again

Left Wing former Georgia congresswoman Cynthia McKinney has been intercepted by the Israeli Navy again. She was aboard a ship trying to run the blockade into Gaza.
From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Israeli naval forces blockading Gaza have intercepted a ship whose passengers include former Georgia congresswoman Cynthia McKinney.

Israeli forces on Tuesday intercepted the Greek-registered Arion in the Mediterranean Sea 23 miles off the Gaza coast, the BBC reported.

The Arion was carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza, according to the U.S.-based Free Gaza Movement.

The organization had named the ship the Spirit of Humanity and referred to it by that name on its web site.

It is the second encounter between Israeli forces and McKinney, who was aboard a ship that collided with an Israeli naval vessel while attempting to cross into Gaza last December.
