Iran's Red Crescent to send aid to Gaza

Iran's Red Crescent Society will try to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza by sending food and medical supplies "in the next few days," Iranian media reported Monday, citing an official with the organization.

Abdul Rauf Adibzadeh said relief goods will arrive in Gaza via Egypt crossing by the end of the week.

The aid group is also preparing to send two relief ships to the coast of Gaza, including a hospital ship with doctors, nurses and operating rooms and another vessel with more relief goods like food and medication, the IRNA and Mehr news agencies reported.

Israel stopped a convoy of six ships trying to deliver aid to Gaza last week in defiance of an Israeli blockade, killing at least nine people in the course of boarding one of the vessels.

    You guys are stupid. Who cares about the history! They are being attacked on a daily basis and every right to protect themsleves. If missiles were flying into the United States imagine what our reaction would be and the force we would use upon any unknown vessel passing near our shores or borders. Once we clear Afghanistan and get someone with balls running this train Iran is next!!!! Wheeeeeeeeeew!!

      Most people have no idea what they are talking about. When you can actually nail someone down to a table to grill them they become feeble minded. Most people have no idea. They don't realize that if the terrorists stopped attacking then Israel opens it's borders and actively employs palestinians. They don't realize that Israel does not want to spend something like 60% of their economy on defense...they would rather spend that money on schools, research, etc. When the terrorists lay down their weapons then the middle east will prosper.

    Strange how the traitor media of the west is so concerned with the 'Palestineans', while the same traitor media has quietly erased the nation of Tibet, nearly the size of Europe, from the map after China invaded it. The hypocrisy of Western journalism as a sworn enemy of the nations that protect it and give it existence knows no bounds.
