Freedom Flotilla : LifeLine4Gaza


I know that we are too busy with exams and other things in our life that we need to focus on, I still want to say this. "Where are we in Palestine crisis?"

For decades, we already heard and saw the news about what happen in the middle east. We have been fed with so many ideologies and the causes of the crisis.

Some take it lightly as its not their problem.
Some only sympathize and felt sad for those casualties for some time.
Some take it more seriously when there's an issue or situation like the January 2009 situation.
Some put it in their heart and hold it as they hold their principles.
Some already grasp it tightly and been spreading the cause to mankind.
Some take it to the higher level by readily to sacrifice themselves for this.

Where are you in these people?


We better start questioning ourselves about this issue as it shows how much humanity left inside us, not to say about where did our Aqidah (Faith) actually stand on.

And I'll clearly state that we don't hate the Jews. We will even send help if they are in the needs. But whom we hate, and whom we disgust is Zionist.

Zionist whom we hate is those who are against humanity.
We hate them because they declared others as non-equal for human rights as the Jews, and even define others as animal (Goyem) which can be killed mercilessly.
We hate them because they seized Palestinian land inches by inches with spilling Palestinian blood.
We hate them because they approve the killing of men, women, children, and old people for their sake.

And we already saw what kind of terrorism happen in Palestine that I and hundred thousands of people make a stance over this issue that we will not sit still and do nothing anymore. And more over, Al-Quds and Palestine is a Muslim issue.


Dr. Yusuf Al-Qaradawi in his book "Al-Quds Qadhiyyah Kullu Muslim" listed the reasons why Palestine and Al-Quds is our problem.

1. Al-Quds (Al-Aqsa Mosque) is the first Qiblah for the Muslim. The place where Prophet Muhammad pbuh and his companion faced in their prayers in early time.

2. Al-Quds is the place of Isra' and Mi'raj of the Prophet pbuh. It's one blessed land for being the land where Prophet Muhammad was lifted to meet God.

3. Al-Quds is the third noblest holy city in Islam. The first holy city in Islam is Makkah which is blessed with Masjidil Haram. Second holy city is Madinah Al-Munawwarah which is blessed with Masjid An-Nabawi and tomb of the Prophet pbuh. And the third holy city in Islam is BaitulMaqdis and the land around it which is blessed with Masjid Al-Aqsa.

4. Al-Quds is the land of the prophets and the blessed land. In Al-Quran, prophet Muhammad pbuh was isra' and Mi'raj there. Prophet Ibrahim was also there. Prophet Moses (Musa) was also there in the pharaoh(Firaun) time. Prophet Sulaiman was there too with his kingdom.

5. Al-Quds the land of struggle and jihad. This is proven with the crisis which is going on there since the day of Khalifah Umar Al-Khattab till now.

As for these causes, many has stood up against the seizing of Palestine and the blockade of Gaza.


And now (May 2010) an armada with 8 ships carrying 10,000 tonnes of aid and about 700-800 activists and politicians from more than 40 countries. The cargo includes building materials, medical supplies and paper for schools. One boat is carrying a complete dental surgery including drills. Crayons and chocolate are also on board for Gazan children. The cargo has been paid for by donations.

"We're trying to break the blockade of the Gaza Strip and tell the world that Israel has no right to starve 1.5 million Palestinians," said Greta Berlin, of the Free Gaza Movement, another organiser of the flotilla. "We are bringing in vitally needed supplies so the people of Gaza can rebuild their infrastructure."


The boats

• Four cargo ships
• Four passenger ships
• Coming from Turkey, Greece, Ireland

On board

• 700 to 800 peace activists and MPs from more than 40 countries
• 10,000 tonnes of supplies, including:

• Cement
• Generators
• Water purification equipment
• 20 tonnes of paper for schools
• Prefabricated homes
• $1m (£700,000) of medical equipment, including: CAT scanners' wheelchairs, crutches
• A complete dental surgery, including drills and a chair
• Sports equipment, including footballs and basketballs
• Crayons and pens
• Chocolate

Paid for

• By donations, ranging from $1.39 from an individual in Brunei to €300,000 (£256,000) collected in Malaysia

As for now, the ship is already set sail to Cyprus and meet other ships and enter Gaza sea together. Now, what we really need (said NGO's spokesman)

1. Your prayers. Nothing we need more than the need of God at all time. As Du'a is the best equipment and aid for us to reach Gaza. Gather round your family and friends and do Solat Hajat together so that all of us are aware of the situation.Pray that our Niat is only and only for Allah's sake, non other. And pray that with this mission, people from all over the world especially Muslim will unite to help their fellow brother and sister as a human.

2. Donation. The Gazan are in the need of many life supply as the Israeli government put blockade toward Palestine and Gaza especially the last 5 years. And for this (Freedom Flotilla), we don't have enough supply and donation and we already in debt with I.H.H (Turk's humaitary NGO) about 2.5 million Euros which they take from other humanitarian funds (africa, afghanistan, china etc.). And this convoy only bring the "basic" life supply, such as medical supply, food, and building equipment, electrical generators and other basic things. We will come again for the second time with other supply which will need your kind donation.

3. Boycott Israel products. As stated in recent Fatwa by scholars and clerics, we urge you to boycott all products and goods which will promote Israel. This include American products because they clearly state their support toward Israel and already funding in Israel military for the past years. Remember, 1 dollar you spend will be asked hereafter as you chose to oppress your fellow brothers and sisters.

4. Spread the cause. As known, Israel already vows not to let us enter Gaza, and some news stated that they already do military training and prepare detention place for 1000 activist on board. With people spreading this, all eye will be on Israel and may make them to back off from preventing us entering Gaza. Organize functions and tell everyone what happens so that everyone will know about this. Remember, this is also an issue of our faith. No Muslim are left behind in this. Inform you local media about this and request them to air this news from time to time.

5. Alert with any news. As we will be on the ship from now, the fastest we can go and back to Turk is within 15 days. BUT, we doubt that and it may take 15 weeks, or even 15 months. But rest assure that we will enter Gaza no matter how. Our primary plan is to enter Gaza, plan B is also entering Gaza, and plan C is also entering Gaza. This is one way ticket, and no turning back. And we beg for your cooperation in any request made by our crew. As there are threats from Israel, we absolutely have no idea what will happen out there that we need your cooperation. If something happen out there, and we need you to suppress your words, please do so. Especially those with Israeli embassy in their country.

Help your brothers and hope for blessing from Allah swt.
