A group of Americans have left for Athens to join a flotilla of ships planning to challenge Israel's naval blockade of the Gaza Strip. The 36 American participants, as well as four crew members and nine journalists, are planning to sail on the American-flagged boat The Audacity of Hope in the 10-ship flotilla. One-quarter of the U.S. participants reportedly are Jewish. The U.S. ship will have no humanitarian aid or other cargo on board, according to reports.
