    Cynithia McKinney "Relief Boat" rammed by Israeli Navy

    A boat carrying international peace activists, including former Georgia congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, and medical supplies to the embattled Gaza Strip sailed back into a Lebanese port on Tuesday after being turned back and damaged by the Israeli navy, organizers of the trip said.

    The crowds on the docks in the Lebanese port city of Tyre were jubilant and cheering as they welcomed the vessel.

    The boat, which set off from Cyprus Monday wanted to make a statement and deliver medical supplies to embattled Gaza. The trip’s organizers said the boat was clearly in international waters, 90 miles off the coast of Gaza, at the time of its close encounter with the Israeli navy.

    “Our boat was rammed three times, twice in the front and one on the side,” McKinney told CNN Tuesday morning. “Our mission was a peaceful mission. Our mission was thwarted by the aggressiveness of the Israeli military.”

    No you dumb ****** your boat was rammed for trying to break the blockade. Too bad they didn't do us all a favor and just sink it with you on board. Bringing supplies to terrorist and getting stopped... imagine that.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Ex-Rep. Cynthia McKinney On Intercepted Boat To Gaza

    Ex-Rep. Cynthia McKinney On Intercepted Boat To Gaza

    Cynthia McKinney Aboard Boat Headed for Gaza, Intercepted by Israeli Naval Force

    Tuesday, December 30, 2008
    The ex-congresswoman and long-time activist for the Palestinians was among a group of individuals turned back after their boat tried to enter Israeli waters in an attempt to land in Gaza to distribute medical supplies.

    Green Party presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney, unimpeded by the "closed military zone" imposed by Israel, was among 16 people aboard a medical supply boat that collided with an Israeli naval ship Tuesday as it tried to enter coastal waters around Gaza.

    The yacht, owned by the U.S.-based Free Gaza Movement, was reportedly carrying 3.5 tons of medical supplies donated by Cyprus. A press release from the group claimed "several Israeli gunboats intercepted the Dignity she was heading on a mission of mercy to Gaza." They said the Israeli military fired machine guns into the water in an attempt to stop the Dignity's progress.

    The boat, registered under the flag of Gibraltar and with an English captain, reportedly took on water and experienced engine problems, according to the group's Web site. It also said the incident occurred 90 miles offshore in international water. The boat's captain was given permission to dock in Lebanon, where it was regrouping to try again.

    Israel's foreign ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor told Reuters that an Israeli vessel and the 60-foot Free Gaza Movement boat did make "physical contact," but only after the aid boat failed to respond to radio contact. He denied any gunfire had occurred, and he said no one was hurt in the incident. He told Reuters the Israeli ship escorted the damaged boat back to Cypriot territorial waters.

    There's a reason this woman lost reelection in arguably the most liberal district in the country. She's a roaring fruitcake, and such a committed pacifist that she physically attacked a congressional security guard because he dared ask to see the badge that she was required to wear for admittance into congressional offices. She was apparently pissed that he didn't recognize her.

    It probably pissed her off that the Israeli navy didn't recognize her either... certainly it couldn't be that the Israeli navy wasn't going to let an unauthorized ship that refused to respond to radio contact and could be carrying weapons and explosives break the blockade in the middle of a shooting war... could it?

    What a ditz. Sets my entire gender back decades. A total embarrassment to women everywhere.

    Naw, it just reminds us that women have a full intellectual spectrum. I do notice though, that in our culture it appears to me that stupid men are better tolerated by other men than stupid women by other women.

    Damn straight. We've dealt with enough men that we simply must have higher expectations of ourselves.

    Because most men laugh about stupid stuff. Most women are just critical.

    I laughed when I first saw that story on the Michael Savage website.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I have no problem with someone trying to bring medical supplies to a warzone. However, acting like a complete moron and trying a run a blockade is extremely stupid. This woman is giving humanitarian work a bad name. If she actually cared about getting the supplies where they are needed, she would have shipped in her stuff the same way everyone else did.

    I eagerly await someone creating a comic opera about this woman.
