100s plan Israel flights on way to Gaza


Hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists plan to fly to Israel before heading for Gaza after pressures by the Tel Aviv regime blocked other campaigners from reaching the impoverished enclave.

"We have responded to a call from Palestinian associations and about 500 hundred of us, women, men and children, will leave on July 8 to show them the world hasn't forgotten them," the organizers said, AFP reported on Monday.

The group will swarm the Ben Gurion International Airport southeast of Tel Aviv to protest the imposed siege against the Gaza Strip by the Israeli regime since 2007.

The blockade has deprived the entire 1.5 million Palestinian population of the territory of food, medicine, fuel and other necessities.

The campaigners include some 300 French nationals and others from Belgium, Germany, Italy, and the United States.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered aviation authorities to block the move. Media reports say all European passengers will be taken to a separate terminal and subjected to tight screening.

The activists, however, said, " Israel has no right to refuse us entry to the occupied Palestinian territories."

The planned effort comes after Greek authorities stood in the way of their fellow humanitarian campaigners that intended to sail to Gaza, apparently buckling under political pressures by the Israeli regime and its key allies in the US and Europe.

They are very brave, good omen to their bravery....

Many men could never even do what they are doing. Openly standing against the Israeli regime is often a sentence for prison, even a death sentence.

We have to openly "contend" to stand with the Israeli regime.....and watch the truly awful things they do.

Though I have no doubt every time I look at the TSA, how much I see of the corrupt Israeli government staring back at me....how far it sank...

Indeed, I doubt the people of Israel would approve of any of these machinations. I'm sure they don't approve of the U.N. My support to those people who rise up against the evil government, kudos to the end of futile Foreign Aid & may the corrupt regime fall rather than a massive war.
