Update on “Audacity of Hope” Boat to Gaza

For more than 2 weeks the 37 passengers, 4 crew members and about 12 people in the support team in Greece worked hard to make sure The Audacity of Hope could sail as part of the international Freedom Flotilla 2 to Gaza. The Greek government, with U.S. backing, enforced Israel’s naval blockade. They jailed the captain and impounded the ship. So while there was an enormous amount of international coverage of the attempt, it was impossible for the ship to reach Gaza. The Greek government’s willingness to serve as the enforcer of Israeli’s naval blockade of Gaza made it impossible for this journey to happen. For today’s update of events go to: US to Gaza.org
