Europe organizes to send relief supplies to help the Palestinian people...
The European Union has no connection whatsoever to the activity described in the article. Instead, the article you cited states, "International pro-Palestinian bodies have organized a massive relief convoy..." So, technically one cannot assert that Europe organized the convoy.

I beg your pardon...not! The European Union would very much like this done.

The EU's express concerns about Gaza are well known. However, even as the EU desires policy changes, there is no indication that the EU supports activities such as the convoy. If or when the convoy is turned back, I doubt that the EU will issue public criticism. The initiative is a purely private one.

What a sure-fire way to promote peace! Fly the bird at all the current negotiations and try to run a blockade so you can get your face on the cover of some newspaper when you're killed by Hamas for being a part of the vast Crusader conspiracy.
