HUH this sounds like someone is going to be contributing to an oil spill as the ship goes down....

MK Ahmed Tibi (Ta'al) echoed Sawani's claims that the Amalthea activists are still intending to sail directly to Gaza. Tibi has been in contact with the organization sending the ship.

"The goal is to reach Gaza," said Tibi. "There is not only a humanitarian goal, but there is also a political message."

In addition to 15 volunteers – all from Libya, except for a Nigerian and a Moroccan – the ship has a crew of 12 from Cuba, Haiti, India and Syria.

I thought this ship was now headed towards Egyptian Port? Or is this new one?
