Or the “The Audacity of Hate”

Or the audacity to be critical of Israel. Doesn’t have quite the same ring, though.

Do you equate running a blockade with ‘criticism’?

Looks like an effective tactic.

The group has already received assurances from the world’s largest maritime insurance company, Lloyd’s, that they would not insure ships participating in the flotilla, as well as an agreement from the International Union of Marine Insurance that they would send their requests to all their members.

“As you correctly point out in your letter, Hamas is subject to UK and EU terrorist-financing sanctions. As such, any vessel identified as being owned or controlled by that organization would not be permitted to be insured by underwriters at Lloyd’s, or any other EU insurer.”
— Lloyd’s Senior Manager of International Regulatory Affairs, Andy Wragg

No one will want to ensure a ship heading for Hamas. The threat of blacklisting by the EU and US is too much to risk.

While the threat of lawsuits before commandos made me chuckle, I fear this is a flotilla that many of those taking part want sunk. They wouldn’t need insurance otherwise they’d look like they were taking part in some insurance scam.
