Breaking the Israeli blockade for the second time, a Viva Palestina US aid covoy has crossed into the Gaza Strip at Rafah with 200 American activists, 50 trucks, and a million dollars worth of food, medicine and other supplies for the 1.5 million Palestinians stranded there. Organized by British MP George Galloway and then delayed at the border for ten days, the caravan included activist Orthodox Jews – a rare, heart-gladdening sight.

"Long live the people of Palestine."
