Breaking: Turkish flotilla heading for Gaza?

November 2, 2011

(h/t Israel Matzav) A report just received on Twitter claims that there’s another Turkish flotilla headed for Gaza (Hat Tip: Earl Peacock via Twitter).

Flotilla heading for Gaza today consists of Irish boat MV Saoirse and Canadian vessel ‘Tahrir’. 15 people on Irish boat, 12 on Canadian

The source of that tweet is Mary Fitzgerald, a foreign correspondent for the Irish Times, who says that this has all been confirmed to her by the organizers.
She also notes that the Irish boat Saoirse is the same boat that flotilla organizers allege was sabotaged in a Turkish port in June.
They hope to be in Gaza by Friday. Should be a fun week. Heh.
The full story is here. You will note the one thing it does not mention when discussing the Palmer Commission report, namely the fact that the Commission found that Israel’s blockade is completely legal.
