  • Description

    Thousand of young Israelis crowded Tel Aviv harbour on Friday (12 September) to present bouquets of flowers to Israeli "peace pirate" Abie Nathan....for delivery in Egypt.

    Mr. Nathan announced earlier in the week that he planned to sail his floating radio station "Voice of Peace" through the Suez Canal next Monday (15 September) -- the second anniversary in the Jewish calender of the outbreak of the 1973 Middle East war.

    He told newsmen on Friday that the Egyptian authorities were aware of his plans and that he hopes to take a number of Israeli journalists with him on the voyage.

    Mr. Nathan -- a former restaurant owner - gained international attention by a series of dramatic but unsuccessful attempts to enter Egypt on solo peace missions since the war of 1967.

    He spends most of his time broadcasting popular music interspersed with message calling for peace in Hebrew and Arabic from his radio ship in the Mediterranean.
