After tremendous pressure from the Greek Cypriots, reneging on their agreement with us http://www.cyprus-mail.com/cyprus/cyprus-stops-mps-joining-gaza-flotilla/20100529, we were forced to take our MPs and activists to Famagusta yesterday, on the Turkish/Cypriot side of Cyprus. We spent all day going from one port to the next, surrounded by helicopters and police. Clearly our deal with Cyprus officials had fallen through, and we ended up being pawns in a political soap opera. The Cypriot members of Parliament, the ones who had worked so hard to get us permission to leave, were outraged. The Greek Parliament members finally told us to go to the North. If they could, they would. The Cypriot government said they made their decision because, "The Republic of Cyprus is fighting for its survival" but it didn't bow to pressure from Israel. As they said this, they bowed their heads.

We made a deal with the Cypriot government that we would board our high-profile passengers and members of Parliament from Cyprus. We would board with no media coverage. We would not bring our boats into Cyprus. We would take small boats out to our own ships and board past the 12-mile territorial limit.

Authorities mandated that we couldn't even do that, essentially telling us that, even if we board small boats anywhere in Greek Cyprus from any port, we could not travel outside their territorial limits to go to Gaza. Twenty-seven people were supposed to board, including 9 Cypriots and two Greeks. None of them could come with us as we went North.

Then our two passenger boats mysteriously had mechanical problems at the same time, 3:30 pm. Challenger 2 was able to get 14 delivered to the IHH ship, then limped into the harbor in Limassol after being harassed by Cypriot helicopters http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjGoe3Gi-ns&feature=player_embedded, essentially forbidding us to bring our wounded boat into port.

Our other boat, Challenger 1 headed toward Famagusta with 16 passengers. It, too, was wounded, something wrong with the steering.

By the time we were jerked around yesterday. We had started at 7:00 am.  By 10:00 pm, we had nowhere to board, and our boats were out of commission.

But we all have Gaza fever, and no one was giving up.

It has taken us all day to find someone on the Turkish side to ferry some of our passengers out to the flotilla who have been patiently waiting five hours away from Cyprus. At 6:00 pm, 20 of our passengers left for the flotilla, and the Swedish MP and the three German MPs are on board. Hedy is not, and we are heartsick that, once again, she will not be able to go to Gaza.

The flotilla leaves for Gaza early in the morning and should arrive tomorrow afternoon. We have persevered... Al Samoud.

Tears in her eyes, 'I really look up to people like you,' ...

It was a group of about 30 middle schoolers from Wisconsin.

They were a bit sleepy this early in the morning, but they were
still able to "hear" what we do, for about 7 minutes.  At the end
one of the chaperones, an early 40ish guy, "Can we ask any questions?"
"Sure I said." "Name me one other country where you could do
what you do...!"  blah blah blah....  He wasn't mean, and neither
was I.  But we were both riled, and the kids saw that.  "Do you
know why we can do this," I asked?  Without awaiting his reply
I said,  "There are two reasons.  One, our brave young men and
women in uniform, the only group in this country I have any respect
for, defend our right with their lives.  And two, people like us 
here at this vigil are willing to go to jail to protect that right, 
as we've gone to jail more than 50 times so far for doing this."  
To his credit, he "got" what I was saying.  The interchange with 
the group ended positively.  

As they departed and the group was moving, a good 20 feet
away now, a little red head came back, with another little 
girl with her for strength.  Tears in her eyes, "I really look up
to people like you," she expressed haltingly thru the tears. 

"It has taken me a lifetime to learn how to stand up for us like 
this, and I'm trying to have others learn faster
than I did.  Your kind words of encouragement mean a great 
deal to me.  Thank you,"  I said.  

I offered, and she gratefully accepted a gentle, fatherly hug.
Tears in my eyes, too, now.  Such Joy.  Such sorrow.

Love America? Broadcast this; Watch: Pr. Obama Gulf Spill (1) Press Conference


"The Great Gatsby": "They were careless people, Tom and Daisy (Wall St., BP, US Consumers...) — they smashed up things...


The Gulf - we'll not get more warnings, in time.

I remain deeply, deeply depressed by the gusher.  I can't even imagine
the agony it is to our beloved sister Diane Wilson who has worked with
unimaginable sheroism to defend her beloved Gulf:

Diane Wilson (1) - Texas Gold
Diane Wilson (2) - Texas Gold
Diane Wilson (3) - Texas Gold

I have a good feeling about the kill shot - seems to be working.

My confidence in Pr. Obama is unshaken - my deep worry is that he's
killing himself for us - the pace he keeps - he is soooooooooo exhausted.

His timing is sooooooooooooooo wise.  He's playing for our lives a game
of multidimensional chess while the rest of the world is playing tic tac toe.
Starting yesterday he began unleashing his thrust to have this unspeakable
tragedy turn into a turning point on renewable energy.

The Vigil DOES make a difference. Christ spoke much of sewing the seeds. Sew, sew, sew.......

Hi. 

Feedback from the last two days from young people via Face Book:

Student A: "I hope everyday someone else will take the time to hear your voice
among the multitude of the world, so that it may be changed. Even
if only a couple of people a day listen, this world can be changed.
Thank you for showing wise and redemptive alternates to what we
are being taught by the world."

Student B:  "Me and Mk are going to start a club to get teens more involed in the
community and to start making a diffrence. Thank you . You inspired
me to start making a stand. (:"

My FaceBook page just passed 600 "Friends," virtually all from the
vigil, mostly young folks - students. 
http://www.facebook.com/StartLoving1

Some of it is me.  Much of it is the 29 year vigil that exists due to Connie, Thomas,
Ellen, B.....  The important thing is that people are being shown, as the student
above so eloquently says - "wise and redemptive alternates to what we are
being taught
by the world."

This IS what Peace Making is.  "You must be the change you wish to
see in the world."

Your brother forever, no matter what,

Start

ps:  Connie is bionic, I'm sure.  She seems to be doing as well as ever.
I know she will not live forever, and when she decides
to head up along with Thomas, I worry that my body will fail us, give out,
as I attempt keep this going by myself.  Oh well.

pps:  This was shot by a student recently.  It is a pretty good capture
of what I share at the vigil, and how:

Friend,

Thanks for adding your name in support of Elena Kagan. I'm grateful that you're helping this movement to make history again.

As the debate over her nomination takes shape, it's crucial that we show overwhelming support from every corner of this country.

Can you ask five friends to stand with us?

Just send them the email below.

Thanks,

Mitch

Hi,

President Obama has named Elena Kagan, the current Solicitor General, as his nominee for U.S. Supreme Court.

I just added my name to the growing list of Americans in support of her nomination. Will you join me?
