'Sailing to Gaza'

A group comprised of about 50 internationals is sailing to the Gaza Strip in an attempt to visit the most densely populated area in the world. Israel withdrew from Gaza and left it under the control of the Palestinian Authority, but yet it controls every one of its entrances.

A member of the group, Greta Berlin:
"We tried to enter Palestine by ground. We tried to enter by air. Now we are going to go by sea.

We must do everything we can to bring to the world's attention to the fact that Israel's military blockade is causing death to the people of Gaza.

Israel has no right to prevent us from going. So we're going. International law says that we have the right to visit Gaza. Remember, in July 2005, when Israel told the entire world that Gaza was no longer occupied? If it's no longer occupied, why shouldn't we go?"

'According to international law, the waters of Gaza for all 40 kilometers of its coast belong to the Palestinians, and Israel has no right to control those waters. Even the Oslo agreements state that the coast of Gaza belongs to the people who live there.'

One of the internationals embarking on the trip is Hedy Epstein, a Holocaust survivor who recently gave a lecture at UCI during the MSU's "Holocaust Memorial Week."

The week was dedicated to the remembrance of the many Holocausts that have occured throughout history. Hedy Epstein enlightened us about the European Holocaust, Imam Abdel Aleem Musa lectured on the African Holocaust, and Professor Ward Churchill ended the week discussing the American Holocaust.

Wow, I didn't know they were making a sequel to "Titanic."

In fact I already got a hold of part of the script. Some lines include:

"Muhammad, draw me like you drew the infidels in Paris!"

"My jihad will go on."

It's like "Jihadis of the Mediterranean!" Or "Gilligan's Jihad!"

I feel like these replies are written by a bunch of 13 year olds. Good job replying and COMPLETELY ignoring the point of the article.

I read the article. Greta Berlin? Self-hating Jew. Hedy Epstein? Not even a real Holocaust survivor (

This blog sounds like what you would get when you put fifty monkeys in a room with a typewriter.

Your replies are worse and less-educated than a three-year-olds. Grow up and if you want to discuss and article, then do it like a grown up and actually try and discuss it.
