U.N. Human Rights Council voting now on Flotilla resolution
UN Watch: "Resolution sponsored by countries such as Iran, Libya and Sudan is political, designed to deflect attention from their own abuses"
How hungry the world is to aid and abet the murderous jihadists of Hamas, whose charter calls for the destruction of Israel.
The latest warship in the trussed-up jihad convoy affectionately named the freedom flotilla ("Arbeit macht frei"), Rachel Corrie, named for the Jew-hating genius, is en route to terror statelet Gaza. A little background on Corrie first:
On March 16 2003, Rachel Corrie, as part of her activities with the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), had gone to Rafah on the Egypt-Gaza border to prevent IDF demolitions of arms smuggling tunnels. ISM activists had repeatedly interfered with these operations, standing in front of the bulldozers and then leaping out of harm’s way. In this case, the IDF was bulldozing shrubbery that camouflaged the tunnels. Rachel apparently thought she was protecting the nearby home of a Palestinian pharmacist. She knelt in front of the bulldozer behind a pile of dirt.
The [nazi like]ISM claimed the bulldozer intentionally ran her over and killed her. After extensive investigation, the IDF concluded that the driver could not see her and that her death was an unfortunate accident. The IDF Judge Advocate’s Office concluded: “The driver at no point saw or heard Corrie. She was standing behind debris which obstructed the view of the driver and the driver had a very limited field of vision due to the protective cage he was working in.” An autopsy revealed that the bulldozer never rolled over Corrie: she was killed when debris dislodged by the bulldozer struck her head.

But nazis never let facts get in the way of a good Jewish blood libel ........ hence the fable of St. Pancake was born.
The MV Rachel Corrie—thought to be carrying 15 people including a Nobel Prize winner and a former senior United Nations official—is in the Mediterranean en route to Gaza, where it could arrive next Monday.
But the Irish government and activists want urgent assurances from Israel that it will be allowed to dock safely, as 682 people from 42 nations detained Monday in a bloody raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla were deported.
“I again repeat my urgent call to the Israeli government to allow safe passage of the Irish owned vessel, the MV Rachel Corrie, which is still sailing towards Gaza to deliver its consignment of humanitarian aid,” said Irish foreign minister Micheal Martin.
“It is imperative that there should be no further confrontation or bloodshed arising from what has been all along a purely humanitarian mission by those involved in the Gaza flotilla.
“The government will be maintaining close contact with the Israeli government on this issue in the coming days.” Martin also welcomed the decision to release six Irish citizens held after the operation against the aid flotilla, saying he looked forward to their “prompt and safe return”.
On Tuesday, Irish Prime Minister Brian Cowen said the Rachel Corrie must be allowed to reach Gaza and warned of “the most serious consequences” if Irish citizens were injured.
Jack Mutt in the Atlas comments:
Islamofascists and their Neo-Nazi allies are reporting that the terror ship "Rachel Corrie" is on its way, and this time the repugnant President of Ireland has invoked Irish sovereignty over the vessel. Now NATO is joining the IHH sheep chorus. All they need do is read the Flotilla commentary on the Ayatoilet's "Press TV" to understand that this incident in an act of aggression paid for by the terrorist government of Iran. Eight large cargo ships CANNOT be paid for and operated from proceeds of bake sales, etc. The Ayatoilets wanted an issue that would unite Muslim Brotherhood terrorists with their Hizbollah puppets. And they got it. Euro media barely even mention the IHH. Media has settled on a fiction: Israel v "human rights" activists. That is BS.Why the Turks? Wahabis despise them; Iran wants to split Egypt from the Saud terrorist entity. Frankly, another week of media negligence, will coerce Egypt into opening the southern borders of Gaza. I am not going to withhold criticism from the Bush government; Junior coerced the abandonment of Gaza in spite of the obvious danger of creating an entity that could invoke sovereignty, in defense of terror operations.
See IHH work for Hamas; their violent nature can be seen in the last couple of minutes. Some of these terrorists probably ambushed Israeli forces. VIDEO HERE
Yvonne Riddley - former Taliban/al-Qaeda captive and current Press TV whore for Ahmadinejad - reveals that IHH Muslim Brotherhood group directs the Gaza raids, from Turkey here.
Why is this Muslim Brotherhood, Sunni hate-group publishing Shiite communiques?
Among those on board are Nobel Prize laureate Mairead Maguire and former UN assistant secretary general Denis Halliday.
Ms Berlin said the ships would be picking up other human rights activists and journalists before attempting the passage which Israel has vowed to stop.
“Israel can haul the Rachel Corrie into Ashdod as it did the other boats or show goodwill to the world by allowing her to proceed to Gaza,” she stated.
While preparations were being made for the second attempt, released flotilla passengers began to speak of the Israeli raid.
Expect a whole lot of whining and kvetching by the bloodthirsty savages and their idiotic tools about how they were treated by the ambushed Jews.
