The American ship named after a book written by The President Obama "Audacity of Hope" was stopped at sea by the Greek Coast Guard 20 minutes after leaving the port the first july 2011.
Audacity Stopped at Sea 01:07:2011.m4v


Greece offered to transport humanitarian aid to Gaza using Greek governmental ships under UN supervision!!

Members of the U.S. Boat to Gaza have begun an open-ended fast calling on the U.S. government to defend their right to sail out of Greece. The fast has begun in front US Embassy in Athenes ..The captain of a US vessel was being held in "shocking conditions" Sunday and has not received consular assistance, a lawyer said.

Captain John Klusmer 60 yrs old was charged with two felonies and ordered to appear in court Tuesday.

New York lawyer Richard Levy -- a passenger on the boat who has visited Klusmer in jail in a port town near Athens -- told enraged US activists that "he had no bed or toilet in his cell, and is receiving no food or water".

Extreme damage done to the Canadian boat Tahrir ( named after Tahrir square in Cairo ). When commandeered & towed by Greek Coast Guard it was slammed into a concrete wall .It all happened very fast. Late afternoon in Greece, the Canadian Boat to Gaza - Tahrir - left port and attempted to sail to Gaza...

Is Greece violating Art. 18 of the UNITED NATIONS CONVENTION ON THE LAW OF THE SEA?

Quote
SECTION 3. INNOCENT PASSAGE IN THE TERRITORIAL SEA

SUBSECTION A. RULES APPLICABLE TO ALL SHIPS


Article17

Right of innocent passage

Subject to this Convention, ships of all States, whether coastal or land-locked, enjoy the right of innocent passage through the territorial sea.

CANADIAN BOAT : Soha Kneen of Canada and Michael Coleman of Australia are are in custody facing one charge each.
so now three humanitarians charged: Soha Kneen (1 charge), Michael Coleman (1 charge), Sandra Ruch (3 charges)
 ‎@Jleerankin and @DylanPenner @hassan_ghani are on board among nine journlaists on board from six countries. Canada, Russia, Denmark, Turkey, UK, Germany.

US BOAT TO GAZA :
Passengers on US Boat will keep vigil outside the hearing of Captain Klusmire today at 12pm Athens time in Pireaus Court.

IRISH BOAT : Four Irish activists who had hoped to sail to Gaza as part of an international effort to deliver humanitarian aid are back in Ireland...Last week their ship the MV Saoirse was damaged in Turkey when a chunk had been taken out of the propeller shaft.

Chris Verweij, activist on the Dutch Flotilla boat:
"They will let us know tomorrow (today) whether all the permits will be granted, so that's really a decision-day, so to say. But if we can't sail from Greece now, we will sail in a month, or months, or a year, who knows? From a different place. The boats are here now, the people are here. The Flotilla will stay, even if Greece blocks it now. God willing, we will break the blockade, regardless of time and place."

My total admiration&respect. No word can describe how one feels towards their bravery & determination and how they put their own lifes in danger to help others.

I donated a lot of medical supplies to the first flotilla.
About a Cubic meter.
It disgusts me that the covetous ones stole it.
May Allah fill the graves with fire.
I got some Medical supplies I don't need right now. Because I don't want Zionists from benefiting from them when they steal them.

Inshallah, I will donate them to the next road convoy.

Inshallah, when Khilafah is re-established, they will pay for what they have done at a higher rate of interest then what they are so famous for charging.
They laugh now, but soon they will cry.

And this has happened many, many times before.
Allah grants them respite, power and authority, and they do evil. And then Allah inflicts his punish upon them.
And then they cry, and say, "why did Allah allow this to happen to us!"
But they know exactly why Allah has done that to them, and their wise ones have warned them of the coming punishment of Allah.
Which they choose to ignore.
And now, when they slaughter our children, steal this kidneys to sell to rich Americans, rape our sisters and keep the rest of us in starvation while calling us terrorists and themselves the victims.
Their wise ones, like the Rabbis neturei karta warn them of the coming punishment of Allah for these evil actions, but they accuse them of being religious extremists who quote from a God, no Zionist believes in.
The Punishment of Allah will come upon them, and the munafiq amongst us will feel sorry for them, while the believers will celebrate about Allah giving us victory.
