Block the Boat. Bested by a bug.
We know whats bugging the Zim Djibouti.
The cargo ship arrived in Vancouver Deltaport on September 5th, and abruptly left.
Declaring a BDS victory when only 6 people showed up to the protest seemed a bit grandiose even for the reality challenged anti-Israel cru. Yet in their warped minds what possible explanation could there be for the sudden departure of the Zim Djibouti other than a victory for their noble cause?
Faced with no concrete evidence, the anti-Israel activists did what they do best. They lied.
The headline at the Popular resistance agitprop site blared: Vancouver Activists Block Israeli Container Ship Zim Djibouti :Tremendous Victory: Four-Day Vancouver Conflict Blocks Israeli Ship. The lies tumbled out fast and furious"...Israeli shipping giant Zim, the giant was defeated today in Vancouver, Canada." "This is a huge victory for the Vancouver coalition..."
It was more of the same on Social media
For ten days, the Block the Boat activists have tracked the Zim Djibout's movements with the obsessive fanaticism of a jilted lover.
Yet for all their rabid attentions, the activists missed something rather obvious. There were many multiple US-bound ships delayed by Asian Gypsy Moth
"Asian Gypsy Moth season runs from May through about November. Last year, Customs in L.A. stopped nine vessels in total. So far this season, which is only just over halfway through, 12 ships have been forced back into international waters after arriving at port with moth larvae discovered on board.
“We are in the worst Asian Gypsy Moth season that we can remember,” a CBP spokesman said."
To the Block the Boat activists: If moth larvae could better achieve your collective goals and objectives maybe your attentions are best directed elsewhere. Have you considered taking up macrame?
