Elder of Ziyon voorspelde eerder al dat de hulpgoederen op de boten van de Gaza activisten waarschijnlijk geen 10.000 ton inhouden, maar veel minder. Dat was o.a. gebaseerd op eerdere genoemde en werkelijke hoeveelheden. Uit onderstaand artikel en zijn analyse blijkt dat die voorspelling uitkomt, en de hoeveelheid eerder rond de 1.000 ton dan 10.000 ton ligt.
I don't have all the details yet, but the IDF has described the goods that were on the ships:
Twenty-four hours after the last ship of the Gaza aid flotilla entered the Ashdod Port under the watchful eye of the Israeli Navy, all of the equipment on board was examined Tuesday and the majority of it was loaded onto trucks headed to the Kerem Shalom border crossing.And how much cargo was on board?
Levi said that eight trucks full of equipment had already crossed into Gaza and that 20 additional trucks would be transferred throughout the night and the following day.This didn't include the concrete, though:
According to Levi, the soldiers also found construction equipment, including sacks of concrete and metal rods. He said that Israel did not allow those products to enter into the Gaza strip for fear that they would be used to construct fortifications for terrorists and for weapons manufacture.Assuming that the article is accurate and the majority of the cargo is being transported on 28 trucks, we can calculate roughly how much cargo was on board.
On the average week, Israel has been sending some 600 truckloads of goods to Gaza, with about 14,000 tons. That means that each truck holds roughly 25 tons or so.
Multiply that by 28 and we get a grand total of 700 tons of goods. This 700 tons is the majority of the cargo. meaning that we know that there is less than 1500 tons of cargo, probably closer to 1000.
(The "Rachel Corrie" ship from Free Gaza is still en route to break the blockade, and it is said to have some 500 tons of cement.)
So, as I confidently predicted, the "human rights" frauds have lied about the amount of goods that they were bringing, by an order of magnitude.
