Rachel Corrie sabatoged? Israeli Ambassador to Ireland cancels discussion
If the Israelis sabatoged the Rachel Corrie, we have to assume the Israelis didn’t want to subject them to the harsh treatment they gave to the others?

Israel Defense Forces thought to have sabotaged Irish aid boat, Rachel Corrie
The Irish ship, MV Rachel Corrie, was tampered with by the Israeli Defense Forces according to Colonel Itzik Turgeman.
The Rachel Corrie was planned to be the first ship to arrive into Gazan waters last weekend but was delayed due to mechanical problems now suspected to be a form of sabotage.
An Israel newspaper reported “A senior officer in the Israel Defence Forces hinted that the IDF sabotaged the engines of five ships, saying “they took care of them.” The Colonel also told the newspaper that the army decided not to sabotage the Turkish ferry, Mavi Mamara which was attacked on Monday.
Currently the Rachel Corrie is in a holding position in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. According to, Free Gaza Movement’s, Greta Berlin the Rachel Corrie is waiting for the Challenger II ship, which was damaged during the attacks.
The Rachel Corrie will pick up more passengers, including human rights activists and journalists, before continuing their journey toward Gaza.
Perdana Global Peace Organisation (PGPO) chairman, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who is representing the six Malaysian passengers on board the Rachel Corrie, said “the ship was going to sail through Gaza waters and it had nothing to do with Israel.
“They are not going to Israeli waters. Why is it that these Israelis are going to block people going towards Gaza and not using Israeli’s territorial waters at all? They have no right.”

Foreign Affairs committee ‘disappointed’ as Israeli Ambassador cancels meeting
Thursday, June 03, 2010 – 07:29 AM
The Oireachtas Foreign Affairs committee has described as “disappointing” the decision by the Israeli Ambassador to pull out of an emergency meeting on the Gaza flotilla attack later today.
Dr Zion Evrony was due to appear before the Committee, but pulled out yesterday afternoon due to “unforeseen circumstances”. Requests for an alternative date were also refused.
The Ambassador was also expected to be questioned on Israel’s intentions towards the Irish aid ship, the Rachel Corrie, which is currently on its way to the region.
I think this is wishful thinking on the part of the Israelis:
THE IRISH ARE COMING TO GAZA BY BOAT!!
Message to Israel:
Are you looking around you? Can you see outside of your self made walled and heavily armed prison? Have you noticed anything? Can you see it? There is a revolution taking place, a worldwide revolution against YOU and your terrorist actions. It comes from all walks of life, all countries, all nationalities, including some of your own people. You murdered some of our brothers already, but you didn’t get all of us. Guess what? Now the Irish are coming, we are coming to break the siege by boat. We are coming, we are on the way……….
Remember this Israel; You can kill the revolutionary, But you can’t kill the revolution! The siege WILL be broken, and we will KEEP coming until Gaza is free from YOU!
