An Israeli peace campaigner Mr. Abie Nathan has been frustrated in his efforts to land?
An Israeli peace campaigner Mr. Abie Nathan has been frustrated in his efforts to land supplies in war-torn Beirut. Lebanese authorities have banned his ship from their waters, which he entered with his peace ship on Wednesday (9 August). Mr. Nathan had attracted considerable voluntary support for his peace mission.
SYNOPSIS: Among the supplies loaded aboard the floating radio station at Ashdod in Israel was a new ambulance, bought with voluntary donations to his 'Voice of Peace' campaign. The crew are all volunteers. They loaded medical supplies, and 30,000 lollipops for the children of Beirut. Abie Nathan was determined to make the potentially dangerous trip, although no-one would insure his ship.
