The Rachel Corrie to be quietly allowed to dock?




Ask any number of average Americans who Rachel Corrie was and few will know.

As the Gaza aid ship of the same name nears its destination, Israel and the US media want to keep her story as hidden as possible.





Haaratz reports:
A diplomatic solution seems imminent to allow the humanitarian aid vessel the Rachel Corrie to dock without incident at the Ashdod Port. According to European diplomats and senior Foreign Ministry officials in Jerusalem, quiet messages have been exchanged over the past few days between Israel and the group operating the ship, to allow it to dock.{more}

Reports are the Corrie was sabotaged by Israeli intelligence. As the lead ship in the flotilla, the name itself was viewed by Israel as a potential PR nightmare. Every US main stream media report I have seen on the ship heading to Gaza does not mention its name, only that it is Irish. No need to stir up old wounds or some may begin to question why the media has buried the Rachel Corrie story for so long and why Hollywood has not made the movie.


On the same note, ask Americans about the USS Liberty. Again few will know. The MSM has done its job on that story too.

Joe Meadors was not only a survivor of the Israeli attack on the Liberty but also made it through unharmed from the attack on the Gaza flotilla.

Early reports of Meadors' first comments ...
“There is no doubt that the Israelis were committing piracy on the high seas against the Freedom Flotilla and used deadly force against unarmed humanitarians whose only crime was defending themselves against a sea and airborne invasion by heavily armed aggressors."

"As a survivor of the June 8, 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty," Meadors said, "I am fully aware of the tactics the Israelis are capable of and willing to use with impunity and without remorse. That time they fired machine guns, cannon, rockets, napalm, and torpedoes on us, then deliberately machine-gunned life rafts we had dropped over the side in anticipation of abandoning ship. And the only response from the American government was to impose a gag order on the crew of the USS Liberty."

"This time, too," Meadors continued, "the Israelis have shown no remorse, and I fear that the US government is again granting them impunity." {more}

and ...

"All of our cameras and digital media devices were confiscated, the Israelis are controlling the images that people are seeing on TV. Many people seem unaware that one of the ships, the Challenger I, is a U.S.-flagged vessel. ... Talk about an investigation of this brings home to me that the U.S. government still has not conducted an investigation of the USS Liberty attack by Israel which killed 34 Americans in 1967." {more}


I doubt if we're going to see a CNN or Fox interview with Mr. Meadors.



The latest report is that a US citizen was killed, shot 5 times in the Israeli flotilla massacre.

As with Rachel Corrie and the USS Liberty ...
Israel doing what it does best ..... getting by with murder.

And sabotage happens with more than deeds. It also happens with words. In today's Haaretz, Barak Ravid reported,

"A diplomatic solution seems imminent to allow the humanitarian aid vessel the Rachel Corrie to dock without incident at the Ashdod Port. According to European diplomats and senior Foreign Ministry officials in Jerusalem, quiet messages have been exchanged over the past few days between Israel and the group operating the ship, to allow it to dock."

This, too, is sabotage in writing. We called Haaretz and the reporter. He did not return our call.
We have no intention nor would we ever have any intention of ever docking in Ashdod. {more}

  1. Interesting Re; Cast Lead;
    NOT ONE country sent a hospital ship to help treat or evacuate the thousands of wounded, many with horrific injuries that overwhelmed Gaza's hospitals.

    GAZA FLOTILLA AND USS LIBERTY SURVIVORS APOLOGIZE TO ISRAEL
    ISRAEL CLAIMS ATTACK AUTHORIZED PERSONALLY BY LORD BALFOUR
    By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor
    This week “religious commandos” from Israel attacked the Gaza Freedom Flotilla in international waters. Seven Israelis were injured during the attack with one member of the “Israeli Secret Police” thrown overboard by an 81 year old woman. Jerusalem papers report that Israel is holding the woman for attempted sexual assault.
    Is it illegal to rape a pirate on the high seas? We are waiting for a ruling from the International Criminal Court at the Hague on this.
    One “commando” tripped over a wheel chair in the dark and fell down a flight of stairs. The injured commando, an Obergruppenfuhrer, a rabbinical rank with the IDF, said, “After shooting the man in the chair, I quickly ran over to get his watch. Imagine how I felt, nearly giving my life for a stinking Timex.”
    The helicopters and boats used by the “floating and flying rabbis” were paid for by the US as part of a USAID program funding health clinics in Gaza. Israelis working with USAID on the project indicated that they the “Peace Flotilla” was mistaken for a “refugee resettlement cruise.”
    “It is our job to care for the Palestinians. We were only there to do medical inspections, picking those that are healthy enough for labor and finding those who are unfit and need “special treatment.” Sixteen were selected for delousing. Relatives of those who received “special treatment” are waiting for a list of names and where to pick up the ashes.

  4. "However the Foreign Press Association complained Thursday that the Israeli military had seized journalists' videos and was selectively using footage to bolster its claims that commandos opened fire only after being attacked.

    The organization, which represents hundreds of journalists in Israel and the Palestinian territories, demanded that the military stop using the captured material without permission and identify the source of the video already released. The material appeared Wednesday on the army's YouTube site labeled as "captured."

    Thats from MSNBC's website, though I have yet to see any tv stations report this.

  5. This little tidbit from cnn:

    " An Irish-owned aid ship headed for Gaza is delaying its voyage for a while to get equipped with video capabilities and satellite transmission to record what is happening at any given moment on the vessel, a Free Gaza Movement activist told CNN.

    The MV Rachel Corrie, named for an American activist killed in Gaza several years ago, was expected to arrive late Friday or early Saturday off the coast of Gaza."

    Although live feeds can be jammed and any audio and video equipment will likely be seized by the Israeli's.

  6. Any ship that docks at ASSHOD will have their humanitarian goods sezied by the ZIONAZIS who will then steal what they want.
    Some goods will get thru, but only for a massive photo op for 'Wolf' and the strippers at FUX.

    And some will wind up in a warehouse until it rots or is destroyed by mold, like past supplies have.

    After all, can't let that playground equipment get thru, those sneaky Muzzies in Gaza might use the swings to launch ICBM's at Europe.

  7. Kenny,

    Superb post. I was surprised though when I read that the Rachel Corrie was going to go to Ashdod. That would defeat the entire purpose of the enterprise.

    According to the Freegaza.org website today, the Rachel Corrie is NOT going to Ashdod.

    Here is a direct quote from their site:
    "This, too, is sabotage in writing. We called Haaretz and the reporter. He did not return our call.

    We have no intention nor would we ever have any intention of ever docking in Ashdod."

    So even the Haaretz article could be part of an operation. Never trust these Israeli sons of bitches. Never.

  8. Thanks for the heads up Mantiq. That was why I put the question mark on the title, it didn't sound right.

    I added the update to the main post.

  10. Those, who published their comments, have no interest in Gaza. The only what they want is to put the pressure on Israel on. They are overwhelmed with hate and anger, anger at the wrong people. Hey, remember how many people lost their lives from like those, who live in Gaza? Do you know who they are? I am sure, those, who lost their loved ones, have not been on these ships-provocators. I regret you and your loved ones did not lose lives in the towers in New York. It would be less hate in the world. You support wrong side, you are against those, who gave you ten comandments, best doctors and scientists, best teachers, actors and astronauts, the best minds in the world. Are you envying? You answer to yourself: why are you on the wrong side?
