    On the 2nd, the Flotilla that was heading to Gaza, is no longer heading to Gaza.

    Pursuant to a decision by the Minister of Citizen Protection Mr. C. Papoutsis, the departure of ships with Greek and foreign flags from Greek ports to the maritime area of Gaza has been prohibited today."

    By orders of the Hellenic Coast Guard Head Quarters to all local Hellenic Coast Guard Authorities, all appropriate measures are taken for the implementation of the said decision.
    All ships that tried to set sail have been boarded by armed Greek military officials and forced to return to port.





    Hamas has slammed the Greeks for stopping the ship, calling their actions "inhumane."

    All have returned home, only people under arrest are the captains of the ships, thou only "House" arrest on the ships.

    Further on this...

    Flotilla Organizers Tied to Terrorism


    Amin Abou Ibrahim, also known as Amin Abou Rashed one of the main financier of the flotilla. Abou Rashed was writing as a representative of the Al-Aqsa Foundation, an organization designated by the US Department of Treasury as a charity financing terror and “a critical part of Hamas’ terrorist support infrastructure.”

    And lastly, Greece has offered to ship the "Aid" to ether Egypt, or Israel to then be transported to Gaza under UN inspection.

    The US probably bribed the Greeks with a few billion.

    You're probably right, but liked the offer the Greeks made to send the humanitarian supplies themselves. I doubt if their offer will be accepted. Those flotilla folks weren't interested in that humanitarian aid.

    Do you really think Obama stepped in with money to stop this? I mean he's hardly been friendly to Israel or her people.....

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    Maybe not but it is one hell of a good excuse for Obama to help prop the Greek government from defaulting.
