Journalist Boat to Gaza?

There is another humanitarian boat trip to Gaza leaving from Jaffa this week.

According to this Jerusalem Post article , it is paid for by a Qatari Charity organization, operated by Arabs with Israeli residency, and will be delivering aid and medicine to the Palestinians in Gaza.

This gave me an idea. If I rented a boat and organized a multinational/ humanitarian/journalist boat trip to Gaza, we could bring in food and medicine into Gaza while making an important point about press freedom.

Let's wait and see if the Israeli navy lets in this boat from Jaffa, and then I will seriously consider implementing this idea.

BREAKING NEWS: The New York Times just reported that the ban is over. The Israeli government just came back to their senses. Foreign journalists will apparently be allowed back into Gaza to do their jobs. No boat necessary.
