So, Religion Is Good in the Arab-Israel Conflict?

Literally, they are cavemen, er, cavewomen:


Women activists planning to sail to Gaza gathered on Thursday near a statue of the Virgin Mary in south Lebanon to pray she bless their flotilla, christened "Mariam" in her honour.

...said spokeswoman Rima Farah "The participants are committed to making progress and our only weapons are faith in the Virgin Mary and in humanity," she told AFP.

Tens of Christian and Muslim women gathered in prayer in a cave near Our Lady of Mantara in the town of Maghdushe, where Mary was said to have waited for Jesus while he was preaching nearby 2,000 years ago.

Along with European activists and journalists, they are planning to sail for Gaza with an aid ship loaded with medical supplies in the latest bid to break Israel's four-year blockade of the Hamas-ruled territory.
