This cartoon by Jeff Darcy appeared in the Cleveland Plain Dealer on June 3. This was clearly a breakthrough. The ADL and CAMERA immediately unleashed the Israel Lobby’s flak machine; they wouldn’t tolerate such favourable representation of what the American Jewish Committee calls ‘The Terror Flotilla‘. It did not take long for the editors to cave and issue a grovelling apology. It is now time for you to register your opinion.

Are Iranian Ships heading to Gaza or not?

The Red Crescent of Iran says NO….. saying “Iran has been bluffing all along and never had any intention to send any aid ship to Gaza ” He added : “Iran is jealous that, following the May 31st flotilla attack Turkey is taking over as Gaza’s main champion in the region”. Nine people were killed by Israeli commandos including a Turkish-American.

The following was announced this evening on Iranian State Television….Iran’s state television reported that an Iranian ship called Infants of Gaza would sail Sunday for Gaza carrying 1,100 tons of relief supplies and 10 pro-Palestinian activists.

Israel is ‘concerned’ that Iran’s plans are not ‘humanitarian’ and are obviously preparing for a confrontation….

Iran said Tuesday it would send a blockade-busting ship carrying aid and pro-Palestinian activists to Gaza, fueling concern in Israel, where commandos were training for another possible confrontation at sea. Israel’s Foreign Ministry, however, voiced doubts regarding the humanitarian goals of the expedition.

Israel has warned Iran to drop the plan. The Iranian announcement came days after Israel eased its three-year-old blockade of Gaza under international pressure following its deadly raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla last month.

“No one in their right mind can believe that a ship sent by the ayatollahs and their Revolutionary Guards has anything to do with humanitarian aid,” said Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor. “I don’t think there is one single country in this region and beyond that would let such an ayatollah ship come near its coasts.”

The IDF Chief was quoted as saying this evening that “We can’t let Gaza become an Iranian port”

It’s all a wait and see situation at this point…..
