Israel Stops Latest Gaza Blockade Attempt

The ‘Rachel Corrie’ has been boarded and the troublemakers on board have been arrested. Fortunately, this time there is no report of violence.

The Jerusalem Post reported:
At about 5:50 am on Saturday, the first reports came in over Twitter that the ‘Rachel Corrie’ had been boarded close to Gaza. Earlier the activists reported that their radar had been jammed, however their Twitter accounts continued to operate.

The activists reported that three boats were following them for about twenty minutes and then that they had been boarded.

The passengers are said to be under arrest.

The Israelis offered to deliver the aid if the ship would dock, but the aim of the activists isn't to deliver aid. They are trying to destroy Israel's ability to defend herself from Hamas.

Hat tip Gateway Pundit.
