Unless of course the Israelis believe that Irish Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mairead Maguire and Former Assistant U.N. Secretary-General Denis Halliday would be involved in weapon smuggling. They have refused offers to offload their donations. Which makes sense since there is no guarantee Israel would ensure the materials made it to Gaza and if such offloading worked? There would be no need for people willing to risk their lives for items such as:
...550 tons of cement to help rebuild schools, homes and other buildings destroyed in Gaza.
Maguire said the ship is also carrying "tons" of writing materials donated by Norway, pharmaceuticals and medical equipment -- including wheelchairs donated by Scotland -- and toys.
