US boat sails for Gaza, ignores Greek ban

Athens - Greece said on Friday it had banned all boats from sailing for Gaza as an activist said a US vessel had defied Greek authorities and set off.

"We've set off, we're going to see how far we can get," Donna Nevel said by telephone from Audacity of Hope, which hopes to break Israel's naval blockade on Gaza and is carrying 3 000 letters of support for Palestinians.

    They need all the food and shelter they can get

    Letters won't put food in the Gazans stomachs. This is what happens when people do things to be noticed instead of for the people. This is what this whole flotilla nonsense is about. Go be self-riteous somewhere else! Take food to Israel or Egypt, let them see there are no weapons, and let it go through...what so d@mn difficult about that?
