The MV Rachel Corrie will return to Ireland in the coming days due to Israeli “sabotage” of the two vessels meant to accompany the ship en route to the Gaza Strip, an organizer of the humanitarian aid convoy told Army Radio on Friday.
Audrey Bomse, legal adviser to the Free Gaza Movement, said that the two passenger boats meant to carry journalists sustained such serious technical damage while docked in Greece last weekend that they would not be able to sail for weeks. Free Gaza was quoted by various media sources as blaming the damage on Israeli “sabotage.”
See? A few leftists and Islamists will blog about this and nothing else will happen as a result. No surprise attacks from “activists,” no paintball guns, no cancellations of important meetings with US presidents, no sanctions and calls for independent investigations. Nope, just a couple of hobbled ships unable to proceed with their mission to embarrass Israel.
