Tonight's guest on the WRH radio show is Dr. Bill Dienst, the medical officer for the "Sea lift" into Gaza which will start in August.
The goal is to set up a regular route of communication and commerce from the island of Cyprus to Gaza to ferry humanitarian supplies and people into and out of Gaza.
Under international law, this is a legal venture and is being done with the permission of the Gazan authorities and the government of Cyprus. It is, in essence, a jailbreak into the besieged Gaza strip along the same lines as the Berlin airlift that freed West Berlin from Soviet efforts to starve it into submission.
It remains to be seen what the government of Israel will do when these ships sail.
