Israel and the US outsourced the siege of Gaza to Athens last summer by preventing 8 boats in the Freedom Flotilla 2-Stay Human from sailing from Greek ports to Gaza. Despite this we were able to bring world-wide attention to the blockade of the Gaza Strip. Our efforts in Greece only fueled our determination to challenge the imprisonment of the people of Gaza. We said we would continue to sail and so we are!!!

At this moment, two boats are in international waters in the Mediterranean heading to Gaza. One boat, the Saoirse from Ireland, includes parliamentarians among its passengers. The other, the Tahrir, carries representatives from Canada, the U.S., Australia, and Palestine.

The U.S. Representative on the Tahrir, Kit Kittredge, was a passenger on the U.S. Boat to Gaza, The Audacity of Hope mission in Athens in July. A journalist from Democracy Now is on the Tahrir also. Civil society organizations in Gaza await their arrival, and look forward to the delivery of letters collected from thousands of U.S. supporters in the To Gaza With Love campaign.


Our thoughts and prayers are with you all, always. VIVA PALESTINA

Send xoxoxoxo to Gaza we Americans support them~

Thank you from all of us who wish we were in your company but are with you in spirit and in solidarity for human rights, freedom, liberty and justice for Gaza and our Palestinian brothers and sisters! Our prayers are with you!

I realize we could talk all day about borders in terms of Palestine/Israel, but who decided to give Israel the Golan???

The map tiles are generated from OpenStreetMap data, which is maintained by a community of people. The boundaries and names on these tiles are very problematic. The landmasses are black to obscure these problems as much as possible, but some boundaries couldn’t be fixed or removed.

For political maps, none of the online options are satisfactory, so I went with the ones that I could more easily modify.

We’re working on developing map tiles that would be appropriate. We’re also looking to include locations of destroyed villages and other elements that will hopefully benefit our readers and other sites who want to use it. Look for this early in 2012 and get in touch if you want to help!

Nobody gave it to them. They just took it, as they took the Shabaa Farms and much of the West Bank. They are nothing but murderers and thieves.

Good luck to you all on board the freedom boats. A wave of good-will goes with you. The Palestinian people have suffered too much for too long. Yours is a creative, peaceful protest. It deserves to succeed.

It seems they are moving too slow.
Any idea when they are going to break the blockade and enter Gaza?

My bet, Yasser? Never. I wouldn't hold my breath expecting that Yasser if I was you.

Arriba esa gente valiente, Palestina, mucho sufrimiento, las potencias creen estar en la epoca de la colonia. Dios los cuide
God Blesses you friend, good luck.we support you with whole heart

Good luck to you all and all freedom loving people

Good luck and thank you all!

The world is watching, All the best for you!
Solidarity and Blessings from Lima, Peru.

A pain in the ass for the Obamas and the Hillaries. They are on the wrong side and they know it!!

God Blesses you friends.

We in Washington DC are watching and hoping and praying and calling those in charge of our policy. Thank you for your courage and persistence in sailing.

Since they were taken off the air, I have been looking for updates, but unsucessfully... however, I notice that after half an hour break they send again coordinates out and seem to still move in the right direction (although much slower then before). Can anyone confirm my interpretation??

Sorry, I just realise that their latest broadcast includes:
