Poll: Do you support the efforts of the Gaza flotilla?

Greek authorities continue to enforce the ban on flotilla ships leaving for Gaza, while the Irish crew members have now returned home. Opinion is divided about whether or not the flotilla should head for the region….what do you think?

THE IRISH CREW members of Flotilla 2, which attempted to travel by sea to Gaza to deliver aid, have now returned to Ireland. Their efforts were halted by Greek authorities who banned ships from leaving for the region and boarded a Canadian boat trying to defy the lockdown yesterday.

The original Irish vessel would have been unable to make the journey, as it was found to be damaged last week while it was docked in Turkey. The flotilla members claimed it was sabotage, but Israel denied any involvement.

Opinion appears to be divided on the necessity or objective of the flotilla… so what do you think?
