Urge Obama to Protect MV Rachel Corrie's Passage to Gaza

Despite the Israeli military attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, the Irish-flagged Rachel Corrie, which is carrying humanitarian supplies inspected in Ireland, is pressing on towards Gaza, the Irish Times reports. Irish Taoiseach (the Irish Prime Minister) Brian Cowen called on Israel to allow the Rachel Corrie to pass through its military blockade of Gaza, and warned there would be "most serious consequences" should any harm come to Irish citizens involved with the aid flotilla.
But the Obama Administration has made no public statement in support of the Rachel Corrie's safe passage to Gaza. Will you join us in urging President to speak up?
