...these people aboard the Freedom Flotilla -- the humanitarian convoy that were intercepted by the Israeli forces as it sailed towards Gaza.
But, in my book, they are brave and courageous men and women.
I can only talk about the suffering of the people of Gaza. The best I can do is to attend fund-raising events for them.
But, I haven't volunteered to join any mission to Gaza. I'm not sure I will. Just not brave enough, perhaps.
The last boat of this convoy is the MV Rachel Corrie.
Journalist Shamsul Akmar Musa Kamal of Perdana Global Peace Organisation (PGPO) is aboard the Rachel Corrie together with 10 others -- 5 Malaysians and 5 Irish nationals.
Sometime today, all contact was lost with the Rachel Corrie, due to, we suspect, Israel's jamming of all connection.
We pray for their safe passage and the safety of the passengers.
