 Israeli Organization Places Ad for Volunteers to Attack Mariam Aid Ship Going to Gaza

Tuesday June 22, 2010 08:10 by Saed Bannoura - IMEMC News

An Israeli security organization placed an advertisement in the ads section in the Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot, seeking “women volunteers” to attack and remove women from the Lebanese aid flotilla “Miriam” filled with aid supplies and women peace activists.

The ad states that “Women with great physical strength and motivations” are needed on a volunteer basis to attack and evacuate women from the Lebanese aid ship. It also has a voice mail number for the volunteers to call and enlist.

The ad also claims that the ship is sent by the Lebanon-based Hezbollah party, while the party itself denied any connection to the flotilla, the Mondoweiss reported.

The name of the security organization was not mentioned in the ad, and the voice-mail does not seem to be connected with a known Israeli organization.
