American Jews for a Just Peace is

'proud to announce that we will serve as the U.S. Coordinator for the "Jewish Boat to Gaza."

The boat, sponsored by a coalition of international Jewish organizations dedicated to peace with justice in Israel/Palestine, is scheduled to sail from an undisclosed location in the Mediterranean this July.
It will head toward Gaza in an effort to break the siege imposed by Israel in 2006.
Passengers will include Jews from Germany, the U.K., and the United States, including at least one survivor of the Nazi Holocaust.

The moral imperative to end the siege of Gaza is absolute. When governments fail to act, ordinary people must organize to intervene. As ordinary people of conscience, we are determined to act on behalf of the people in Gaza deprived of their right to ordinary lives.'


Meanwhile - a change of tactic?

I posted about the Miriam on 28 Jun 10 - 06:15 AM

"the all-female Lebanese ship which plansed to set sail for Gaza on a humanitarian mission carrying about 30 Lebanese and 20 foreigners, including several European nationals Muslim, Christian and secular
It was reported that the ship will carry four nuns from the U.S., cancer medication and other humanitarian aid."

I can't read Hebrew but an advert is said to have appeared in the Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot, seeking
"Women with great physical strength and motivations" who are needed on a volunteer basis to attack and evacuate women from the Lebanese aid ship.
It also has a voice mail number for the volunteers to call and enlist.

Perhaps someone can confirm or refute this?
