Dubbed the “Mariam” in honor of Virgin Mary, the ship will carry 50 women, most of them Christian and the rest Muslim.
A Lebanese ship preparing to set sail from Beirut to break the Israeli maritime blockade of Gaza is crewed entirely by women.
Dubbed the “Mariam” in honor of the Virgin Mary, the ship will carry 50 women, most of them Christian and the rest Muslim, along with cancer medication. Many of the women are also suffering from cancer. Israeli Government has been speaking with the Vatican because the ship is expected to include several dozen Catholic nuns.
The ship’s leader, Samar Alhaj, told the Nazareth-based Israeli Arab radio station Radio A-Shams that using women in such a way is “the new secret weapon” against what she described as “the thieving enemy.”
Alhaj insisted that the Israel, which has warned it will not allow the ship to reach Gaza, will use unprovoked violence against the female crew.
When Israel intercepted a five-ship flotilla from Turkey earlier this month, the boarding party was forced to resort to deadly force against the crew of the largest ship, the Mavi Marmara. However, the other four ships were seized and redirected to Israel without violence, as their crews did not attack the Israelis.
The Lebanese ship is being sponsored by Hizballah. The group’s leader, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, personally tasked Alhaj with leading the mission. Alhaj is the well-known wife of a Lebanese security officer believed to have participated in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, who was an opponent of Hizballah and the group’s Syrian allies.
Israeli Ambassador to the UN Gabriela Shalev sent a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon noting that Israel will intercept the ship, and that if the international community wants to avoid the possibility of another loaded confrontation, it should preempt the provocative flotilla.

Lack of discernment. That must be the reason why a Messianic Jewish Magazine writes that the next “aid ship” from Lebanon have “Christians” on board.
Because no true Christian lady will ask Virgin Mary to protect her voyage.
True Christians have no other protector that Jesus of Nazareth, a Jew.
But Roman Catholics from Lebanon are likely to use “Mary” and side with Islam in their common fight against the state of Israel. Because both the Vatican and Islam looks up on any Biblical Jewish homeland as a threat to their religion, which claims they being the “new Israel” and the true people of God.
It is not so strange that Catholics and Islamic believers are sailing in the same anti-Jewish ship against Israel. Because they have a common belief in “Catholic Mary”, who is the mother of a copy-cat Messiah. She can not save them. Neither can her copy-cat son.
Just take a look at this link about Palestinians who honors “Miriam”:
Another link about the Vatican and Islam agreeing on worship of “Mary”:
Even Hizb”Allah is honoring Catholic Mary.
In a way not to be misunderstood, God of the Bible exposes fake and falsehood among his enemies. No one that supports them, will have any excuse when they end up in Hell. Please take a look at two of many warnings, found in the Bible:
For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible.
Matthew 7: 12-15
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.
(end of scripture)
People who believe in the message of Jesus love Israel and the Jewish people. The King of Kings will never forsake and leave His brethren in the flesh. He promised to rule over the house of Jacob forever.
and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end.”
(end of scripture)
Father God promised to love the Jewish people with an everlasting love. His Son Jesus of Nazareth did not come to change this promise:
The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.
(end of scripture)
Shame on all the enemies of God in Heaven, that makes a mockery of the teachings of His Son, Jesus the Messiah. Do not support Rome and Mecca, the enemies of God of the Bible.
