It's a deal

November 24, 2016 22:55

Samar Alhaj, the woman leading the Mariam, the Lebanese ship that is set to try and break the naval blockade on Gaza, said in an interview with a regional Israeli Arabic language radio station in Nazareth that women were “the new secret weapon” in use against the “thieving enemy”, reports the Jerusalem Post today. Around 50 women, “more Christians than Muslims,” will be coming from Lebanon, the US, France, Britain, Japan, Kuwait and Egypt.

Yasser Kashlak, a Syrian businessman of Palestinian descent who heads the “Free Palestine Organization” is funding the Mariam, as well as another ship that is to carry journalists and parliamentarians. Kashlak said over the weekend on Hizbullah’s al-Manar television station that he was increasingly optimistic that one day these same boats would take “Europe’s refuse [the Jews] that came to my homeland back to their homelands.

“Gilad Shalit should go back to Paris and those murderers go back to Poland.”

It's a deal.

We’ll oblige Alhaj and allow the Mariam into Gaza. These caring women can go ashore, deliver the goods personally to the needy and then travel home overland through Gaza’s Egyptian border. I'm sure Hamas will welcome the women with open arms (figuratively speaking, of course).

Hamas will oblige Kashlak by placing Gilad Shalit on board the Mariam which will then set sail for Paris.
