Very little will be reported about this ship because it came from Ireland, not a muslim country.

Who cares where it came from, that ship was going to cause trouble, and should have been blown out of the water. But Israel was being nice by taking it over. They should be thankful. They knew what would happen if they went.

Sadly, that is most likely true.

Obviously you didn't read the link. I'm embarassed for you.
"to cause trouble...."? Yes, humanitarian aid and nobel peace prize winners and former UN secretaries are clearly ALWAYS total rabble rousers.

Blind allegiance to Israel I see. They can do no wrong eh?

What trouble were the Irish humanitarians going to cause? Can't have them giving Palestinian civilians food, medicine and something more than tents to live in after Israelis destroyed their homes, right?

I find it hilarious how the Turks are whining and blowing hot air left and right. It's wrong for the Israelis to board a ship carrying aid to their enemies but imagine if they were bringing aid to the Kurds, the Turks would blow a gasket and proceed to wipe a few more Kurdish villages off the map. Talk about hypocrites ...

According to the Turks the Palestinians are good and anyone who helps them is good, but yet the Kurds are bad and anyone who helps them is bad. The Kurds have just as much of a right to their own country as the Palestinians do.
