On year ago, the ship “Mariam” was supposed to leave Tripoli in Lebanon to bring supplies to Hamas in Gaza.
A “women-only” ship, complete with a nun and a heavily pregnant mother, has cleared political and technical obstacles and is set to sail from Lebanon to Gaza.
This ship is presenting Israel with a new challenge. The ship is supposed to leave Tripoli by Sunday night, its co-coordinator, Hizbullah-backer Samar al-Hajj, told the London Guardian.
A new PR stunt is aimed at embarrassing Israel into using its mighty force against what will be portrayed as defenseless women.
The Lebanese ship has been christened the “Mariam” and received the blessing of Catholic women who gathered last week at a statue of the Virgin Mary in southern Lebanon to pray for her to bless another attempt to break Israeli sovereignty over the coast of Hamas-controlled Gaza.
Flotilla spokeswoman Rima Farah told the French news agency AFP:
“The participants are committed to making progress and our only weapons are faith in the Virgin Mary and in humanity.”
Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon stated:
“If there was a mask of humanitarianism on previous flotillas, the mask has been removed completely from these boats, which are carrying representatives of Hizbullah and Iran.”
The women insist they are not affiliated with Hizbullah. But the organizer of the Miriam, Samar al-Hajj, is the wife of Lebanese general Ali Hajj, who is in a Lebanese jail for involvement with the 2005 assassination of former anti-Syrian Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
She reportedly met with Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah last month.
The financial backer of the Mariam and one other ship is Syrian businessman Yasser Kashlak, who previously has stated support for Hizbullah.
He told the terrorist organization’s Al-Manar television satellite network that the boats will take “Europe’s refuse [the Jews] that came to my homeland back to their homelands.”
Do these Catholic nuns have the approval of the “Holy Father” in Rome?
The nexus between Islam who promise brutal killers a lot of “holy virgins” in Heaven, and the Catholic Church becomes obvious after their common fight to “liberate” Gaza.
It must be the Roman Catholic Church who produces the virgins, who will spend eternity in bed with the sons of Islam.
There can be no other explanation. Because the Arabs rapes their own daughters, and can have four wife’s. Where are all these Muslim virgins to be found?
