The pro-Hamas, Islamist charity organization IHH is accepting reservations on its official website for Mavi Marmara’s second voyage to Gaza “to break the illegal blockade on the region”. They call upon individuals who want to take part in the ‘Freedom Flotilla’ to fill out a reservation form made available on the website. IHH’s bank account numbers are also provided for donations.
According to IHH ten thousand applications were filled during the first week, and that their target is for one million people to apply. Additional 250 thousand application forms have also been shipped to various cities in Turkey.
While spaces are guaranteed for the families of the ‘shahids’ of last year’s flotilla, IHH will make the selection among the applicants, based on the wording of the explanations the applicants provide in the form, about why they want to join the flotilla. A few samples demonstrate the applicants’ desire for martyrdom.
