Cynthia McKinney apparently was uninjured when an Israeli patrol boat collided with the vessel she was aboard, which was attempting to bring supplies to the Gaza Strip. “Free Gaza,” the outfit that sent the supply boat, claims the Israelis “gave us no warning” and “rammed us three times.” The Israeli government described the incident as an accidental “collision” that occurred after the aid vessel drew near to an Israeli military craft and was warned away.
The State Department thus far has not issued any protest. Its spokesman said, “When you enter a zone of conflict, then you have to realize that it’s very, very dangerous.”
No other Americans were on the “Free Gaza” boat.
