Why is Israel afraid of Gaza’s Ark?

Posted July 21, 2014 by Anonymous

It was due to sail out of Gaza in September, carrying goods from the occupied West Bank and Gaza to trade with the outside world, in an attempt to break the illegal blockade of the Gaza Strip.

Building this boat continued the movement to sail boats to and from Gaza and was also part of the much larger movement of nonviolent resistance to the Israeli Occupation of Palestine.
