As Christians committed to the defense of Israel, we need to pray God's Word in Isaiah 54:17 over God's chosen people as they face an enemy which wants nothing less than their complete annihilation. Pray with me that no weapon formed against Israel shall prosper.
The "peace" flotilla, as the American Pravda likes to call it, which is headed towards Israel to break the Jewish nation's blockade over Gaza is nothing close to being peaceful. What a surprise!

Report: Israeli Military Intelligence Says Members Of “Peace Flotilla” Plan To Use Chemical Weapons On IDF Soldiers If They Attempt To Board Ships…
"(JPost) — 'IDF sources claimed Monday night that new intelligence information obtained by Israel in recent days shows that participants of the flotilla planning to break Israel’s sea blockade over the Gaza Strip later this week plan to kill IDF soldiers who board their ships.
According to the information obtained by the IDF, some of the participants have prepared a number of sacks with sulfur, which they plan to pour on the soldiers as they board the vessels.
“This is a chemical weapon and if poured on a soldier it can paralyze him,” an IDF source told The Jerusalem Post Monday night. “If the sulfur is then lit on fire, the soldier will light up like a torch.”
The information was obtained from closed meetings held by participants on the ships during which some voiced their intention to “murder Israeli soldiers,” according to the IDF.
Also, despite earlier predictions that members of the Turkish organization IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation would not participate in the flotilla, it now appears that some members will sail with the ships alongside other radical Islamic activists.'"
And from Israel Matzav:
"The organizations behind the flotilla have ties to Hamas. There are more than 30 organizations that are involved in the flotilla, some of whom are connected to Hamas and some of whom are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood.
One group is ECSG, which shares a chairman with the 'Palestinian Return Center,' an organization that has been banned in Israel as a terrorist organization. Another charity involved in the flotilla is the al-Aqsa Fund, which has branches throughout Europe.
Amin Abu-Rashed, one of the main leaders of the Italian-Dutch group, runs Hamas' charity fund in the Netherlands.
Muhammad Ahmed Hanoun is another leader who is connected to Hamas and not to IHH.
There are Turkish participants in the flotilla including from the IHH. They will be on more than two vessels.
The IDF will be able to send video from sea this time and it is allowing 12 foreign journalists to come on the Navy ship. They will be able to broadcast from the ship. But there will be no live feed into which we can tap.
The IDF is assuming that the flotilla will arrive regardless of the efforts made to stop it."
