Women's Boat to Gaza Prepares a New Challenge to Israel's Blockade

women's Boaat to GazaWhen two dozen women sail from Barcelona on September 14, mounting the latest international challenge to Israel's naval blockade of the Palestinian Gaza Strip, their boats -- the Amal, or "hope," and Zaytouna, or "olive" -- will confront a seemingly intractable impasse.
