Jordanian Replacement for Mavi Marmara

June 26, 2011

Wa’al Al-Ska, chairman of the “Lifeline” council in Jordan, announced on Sunday that the council has purchased a 200-passenger ship to take part in “Freedom Flotilla II”, which is scheduled to sail in the next few days in an attempt to break the naval blockade on Gaza. The 560-Euro price tag is being paid by the Jordanian Board of Trustees.

Al-Ska explained that an Arab ship had to take part because the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara, the focus of last year’s attempt to break the blockade, would not be ready for this year’s flotilla. The Jordanian delegation will consist of 35 people, representing professional unions, political parties and Islamic movements from five countries.

the blockade is over. this is merely a threat to Jewish lives.
