Made my Day


From the Times:
"A convoy led by the maverick MP George Galloway carrying supplies for Gaza has been attacked in Egypt, apparently injuring several people travelling in his party.

The convoy, carrying aid worth £1 million, was pelted with stones and vandalised with anti-Hamas slogans after it stopped overnight in El-Arish, a small town around 28 miles from the Rafah border crossing with Gaza."

Update:

Gene at Harry's Place reminds us just where all that aid Galloway is bringing is going to end up.
"Speaking to the adoring masses after crossing into Gaza, George Galloway announced:

'We have brought with us many vehicles, much equipment, much medicine, everything we could carry. And we will hand it to Ismail Haniyeh, the elected prime minister of Palestine.'

That would be Ismail Haniyeh, the leader of the Hamas regime in Gaza. And that would be Hamas, which in January raided some 100 aid trucks that Israel had allowed into Gaza, stole their contents and sold them to the highest bidders; and which in February stole hundreds of tons of aid from the UN’s Relief and Works Agency, causing UNRWA to suspend shipments to Gaza."
