Mariam Flotilla Ship Heads for Gaza

E-mail Print PDF

A new dimension in the hatred of Israel unfolds with a new ‘flotilla ship’ leaving Lebanon bound for Gaza in an attempt to break the blockade. In an attempt to raise world anger against Israel, this ship is an ‘all women’ affair. Of course, Hamas perfected this technique during Operation Cast Lead when their brave fighters hid in underground shelters leaving women and children exposed at ground level to bombing and shelling by the IDF.

Reported by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu in Arutz Sheva on 8th August 2010:

A “women-only” ship, complete with a nun and a heavily pregnant mother, has cleared political and technical obstacles and is set to sail for Gaza, 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. Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev told Israel National News, “There are no limits on goods going to Gaza, and any ships trying to bring so-called aid to Gaza will be regarded as provocations.”

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.”

Lebanese flotilla ship to set sail from Lebanon

Evidence is mounting that the organizers of a new flotilla set to leave Lebanon toward Gaza are not neutral peace activists, but are in fact tied closely to the Hizbullah terrorist organization, and openly profess their hatred of Israel. Samar Al-haj, one of the organizers of the new ‘Miriam’ flotilla, is the wife of an officer with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Lebanese Internal Security Agency who was jailed for four years on charges of involvement in the murder of former Lebanese PM Rafik Al-hariri. Syria and Hizbullah are accused for orchestrating Al-hariri’s murder.

Al-haj’s husband was released from prison a year ago. Three weeks ago, to mark the anniversary of her husband's release, the couple met with Hizbullah Chief Hassan Nasrallah. At the meeting, Al-haj thanked Nasrallah for standing by her and her husband during his imprisonment.

The sight of women—supposedly unarmed—facing Israeli naval commandos trying to stop it from breaking the sea embargo on Hamas-controlled Gaza faces Israel with a new public relations challenge. The women have dramatized possible violence by preparing to travel equipped with blood test equipment “in case we come under attack from Israel and you need a blood transfusion," al-Hajj said. She added, "We will not even bring cooking knives” in order to prevent accusations that they are armed.

Pro-Arab activists have been preparing the Mariam ship for more than a month, but Lebanese and Cypriot authorities had refused to clear the boat and a sister ship for sailing. It must dock in Cyprus to prevent a claim by Israel that it will intercept the ship because it is sailing towards Israel from the declared enemy state of Lebanon.

The sailing of the Mariam has been carefully geared for public consumption. Besides the nun and a pregnant woman, the crew includes Christians and Muslims, and the ship has been named after the Virgin Mary. Israel has warned that allowing ships, even those with aid, to reach the Gaza coast would set a precedent that would allow Hamas to freely import advanced weapons.


With all the bleeding hearts condemning Israel, one should consider some facts when it comes to aid in relation to Gaza and Palestinians in general.

UNHCR (established 1950)

  • 34.4 million world refugees (except those Palestinians), over 118 areas
  • a budget of about 2,000 million dollars,
  • a staff of 6,650 people.

UNRWA (established 1949)

  • 4.7 million Palestinian refugees, over 5 areas
  • a budget of about 545.66 million dollars
  • a staff of over 25,000 people.

UNRWA has TWICE the funding per refugee as UNHCR does
UNRWA has 1 staff for every 188 Palestinians; UNHCR has 1 staff for every 5,173 refugees.
Why do we call them the ‘poor Palestinians’ when they receive superior funding and staffing to the rest of the world? Why doesn’t the UN dismantle UNRWA and give the job to UNHCR which is more efficient?

Some TRUTHS for Nuns and Catholic Women

Nuns of course are referred to as Brides of Christ and as such, they are ‘married’ to Jesus. Both Nuns and Catholic women should then consider the teachings of Jesus before furthering the cause of Mohammed.

Teachings of Jesus
Jesus said that only FALSE prophets would follow him [Matthew 24:24]
Jesus said that in Heaven people would not marry [Matthew 22:30]
The Bible says that only false prophets promise sex in Heaven [2 Peter 2]
Jesus said to Peter that to deny the crucifixion and resurrection was to follow Satan [Matthew 16:23], and Mohammed denied this. [Sura 4:157]
Now Mohammed came after Jesus (b. 570AD) and promised that he would marry Mary the mother of Jesus in Heaven and promised men a Heavenly brothel. That makes Mohammed a FALSE Prophet and a prophet of Satan. Mohammed married a six year old girl in Aisha.
Narrated 'Aisha: that the Prophet married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death). [Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64]

Mohammed stated he will copulate with Mary, Mother of Jesus in Heaven. A hadith in al-Siyuti (6/395). Muhammad says:

“In heaven, Mary mother of Jesus, will be one of my wives.”

So to all the Nuns and Catholic women, how can you support this false prophet who Jesus warned you about?
Why do you support the prophet of Satan who states he will have sex with Mary, the Mother of Jesus?


These flotillas are a farce and the world should condemn them.
The Catholic Nuns and women should consider the teachings of Jesus and NOT support the followers of the prophet of Satan, Mohammed.

Lest We Forget the Battle of Tours

History - Violent Jihad

Australians celebrate and revere Anzac Day on April 25th each year in remembrance of our brave soldiers who fought in two great world wars to secure our freedom. Every Australian identifies with the slogan “lest we forget” and in services held around the country people reflect on the battles and men who died to secure our freedom. Yet across the world in France, there is one remarkable battle which helped form the Europe we know today and allowed the development of civilization based on Judeo Christian principles. This one famous battle has become known as the battle of Tours and effectively stopped the Muslim advance into Europe. After the death of Mohammed in 632AD, Muslim armies exploded out of the Arabian peninsula to conquer much of the Middle East, expanding across north Africa. From there they crossed into Spain in 711AD and eventually controlled much of al-Andalus by 715AD. It was the victory at Tours by Charles Martel that stemmed the tide and eventually the Muslim marauders were expelled from Spain in 1492 when the last outpost at Granada fell to King Ferdinand of Spain.

Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was born, lived, fought and won battles against religious and social oppression in the 17th century Bharat or India. He was a shining star in the Indian firmament and is renowned as a champion of the downtrodden and depressed masses. He was and continues to be an icon for the classes and masses alike and is seen as a rallying point for peasants oppressed by foreign rulers, Pathans and Moghuls alike. Sexually exploited women found in Shivaji Raje a protector, a benefactor and flocked to his Hindavi Swaraj to find solace and feel liberated under his saffron flag.

Perhaps some readers might be interested to know that January 28 is considered a feast day among Catholics – actually 2 feast days are celebrated on the same day – one is of ST Thomas Aquinas, the great medieval theologian and philosopher who adapted Aristotle to the western Judeo-Christian worldview. . It is also the feast day of a lesser known person – St Peter Nolasco, the great ransomer of captives from the Muslims.

Barbary Corsair
Somalian Islamic Pirates & Lessons from History
The dramatic rescue of the American cargo-ship captain Richard Phillips from the hands of Somalian Islamic pirates by the U.S. Navy—killing three pirates, holding him hostage at gun-point, through precision-targeting—warrants a review of the U.S. struggle with piracy and hostage-taking in North Africa, which ended two centuries ago.

Raiding trade-caravans and hostage-taking for extracting ransom in Islam was started by Prophet Muhammad. Having become powerful and secure after his relocation to Medina from Mecca in 622, Muhammad initiated Jihad or holy war in the form of raids of trade-caravans for earning livelihood for his community. In the first successful raid of a Meccan caravan at Nakhla in December 623, his brigands killed one of the attendants, took two of them captive, and acquired the caravan as “sacred” booty. The captives were ransomed to generate further revenue. Muhammad, later on, expanded this mode of Jihad to raiding non-Muslim communities around Arabia—for capturing their homes, properties and livestock, capturing their women and children as slaves often for ransoming and selling, and imposing extortional taxes—which sometimes involved mass-slaughter of the attacked victims.

Battle of Broken Hill Logo
The First Islamic Terrorist Attack on Australian Soil
On January 1, 1915 two Broken Hill men, both former camel drivers, armed themselves with rifles, an homemade flag bearing Islamic insignia and a large supply of ammunition and launched a surprise attack on the Picnic Train about 3 kilometres outside Broken Hill.

The train carried about 1200 Broken Hill residents to Silverton where a picnic to celebrate the new year was to take place.

The two Muslim men, Gool Mohamed originally a Pashtun tribesman from Afghanistan and Mullah Abdullah from what is known today as Pakistan, decided to wage jihad against Australian infidels after Australia and the Ottoman Empire officially joined the opposite sides in the WWI.

Battle of Higueruela

Alhambra - GazelleHow often in conversation with a Muslim, do they quote Spain as the crowning achievement of Islam, where Muslims, Jews and Christians lived in harmony for about 800 years?

And when you mention the killings and massacres, you are told that the Spanish Inquisition was much worse.
This is a misconception, since the Inquisition in Spain was responsible for only between 4,000 and 5,000 lives. [1]

Yet in 1066AD, in a single day, muslims murdered over 4,000 Jews because Vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela had risen to a position greater than them, and of course, this upset the Muslim sensitivities. [2]

Decisive Victory for the West

At this time of year, it is timely to remember one of the greatest victories of the west against the Islamic world. On the 7th October in 1571, Don Juan and the Holy League, led by Admiral Doria, defeated the larger Ottoman fleet in the Battle of Lepanto, saving Europe from the Turks and militant Islam. The Holy League was a coalition of different armies - of the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and some others.

When Mohamed and his faithful followers moved from Mecca to Medina, they found themselves among three Jewish tribes/clans (BANU-L-NADIR, BANU KAINUKA and BANU KURAIZA)  which settled there some time after their expulsion from their homeland and also living there were  two Arab, pagan tribes.

Mohammed, who at this stage needed more followers, decided to win those tribes over and convert them to his newly invented religion.

Islam was yet not as fully developed as we know it today, and Mohammed was still having his sessions with Allah (the Medina period revelations).
