We have to send a Canadian boat to Gaza -- even more than ever
Two months ago, Ehab Lotayef, a member of the Canadian Boat to Gaza Committee, wrote a short article, "We have to send a Canadian boat to Gaza." Since then, a number of events have taken place that makes Lotayef's stated imperative even more urgent.
Another flotilla boat has been hijacked by Israel in yet another act of state piracy committed in international waters. The all-Jewish crew of the boat included an ex-IDF soldier and an 82-year-old holocaust survivor.
