    News on this is very very limited at this point, restricted to a few twitters --

    http://twitter.com/...

    # No struggle or injuries, but the Rachel Corrie has been captured. Communications jammed. Report from Irish radio. #Flotilla 7 minutes ago via web

    # Reports from Malaysians that the Rachel Corrie has been taken by the Israeli navy who has boarded the ship. #Flotilla 14 minutes ago via web

    # Unconfirmed reports from Israeli radio say troops have boarded Rachel Corrie. #Flotilla 15 minutes ago via web

    # Israeli Radio reporting that all satellite signals have been jammed by Israeli authorities. #Flotilla 16 minutes ago via web

    Update: 11:22 Press Release from FreeGaza.org in charge of the Flotilla

    Again, news seems very limited at this moment, because that's the way the IDF wants it.

    Press Release from FreeGaza.org

    http://www.freegaza.org/...

    Rachel Corrie boarded, equipment jammed

    Press Release - Wed 5th June, 3.30am
    The IPSC has been contacted by the MV Rachel Corrie in the past few minutes. Jenny Graham reported that they had been followed by Israeli ships for about 2 hours, and that in the last few minutes 2 ships were approaching from the port side. Ms Graham said that equipment on board had been jammed by the Israeli navy, and that they expected their satellite phone (number below) to be jammed soon as well. The line was bad, and we were unable to determine the exact location of the Rachel Corrie relative to their destination.

    On hearing of the news, Freda Hughes of the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) said: "We all hope that those on board the Rachel Corrie will remain safe and that there will be no repeat of Monday's terrible attack on the Freedom Flotilla. Our hearts are with you."

    The Rachel Corrie is flying their Irish, Malaysian and Filipino flags at half mark as a mark of respect for their murdered comrades from the Mavi Marmama which was hijacked on Monday by Israeli commandos in an attack that left at least 9 people dead.
    Speaking about Minister Micheal Martin's statement earlier in which he said that those on board the Rachel Corrie had rejected a so-called deal that would involve them docking in the ISraeli port of Ashdod, Jenny Graham said: "We will have no part in a deal that involves us legitimising the siege of Gaza. We intend to continue on our mission to deliver our cargo of aid and supplies to the people of Gaza. This has always been our intention."

    It's the one where their school children have better odds of being raped by a female teacher than of being blow up in their own bedrooms by genocidal Muslims - that world.

    Go back to Auschwitz? Seriously?
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    According to the IDF, it's not true:

    Contrary to false reports, the IDF has not boarded the Rachel Corrie ship attempting to break the maratime closure on Gaza

    George Orwell was right in 1984. They are trying to control the language in order to assist in controling the people.

    According to the AP, the Israeli's have now seized the ship. No resistance was met.
