THE PEACE SHIP 1977 DOCUMENTARY

Here we have a CD recording of The Peace Ship anchored 6 miles off the coast of Israel, the brainchild of Abie Nathan, he equipped it with a transmitter and lowered anchor right outside Israeli territorial waters and started broadcasting talks of peace along with some of the best music in the region. In 1968 Abie Nathan purchased a 170 ft , 570 ton Dutch Freighter Cito built in Delzijl, Groning in the Netherlands. The ship was originally named Rolf, then  renamed Westpolder in 1950 and Cito in 1960. Abie renamed the vessell Peace  and was registered in Panama. In 1969 the ship sailed from Amsterdam and 3 years were spent in America anchored in New York Harbour  where they were served a summons for being a danger to health and welfareof the people in New York !!!!!. Eventually a 50,000 watt transmitter was purchased and a 160ft mast installed. 16th March 1973 the MV Peace sailed from New York into the Atlantic and eventually on the 21st March 1973 The Peace Ship set sail for Israel . Abies  dream was to see Arabs and Jews live together in peace. " From somewhere  in the Mediteranian"  was the favourite announcement .  This is a recording from the MV CITO made in 1977 featuring Abie Nathan the owner, and his brief life history. Also included is a BBC documentary about The Peace Ship and its achievements, and a full broadcast programme. This is another remarkable offshore pirate story from the other side of the world.

 

Footnote; December 1993, The Peace Ship has been sunk in the Med by its owner Abie Nathan, the station closed down following the signing of the Israeli, Palestine Peace Accord. Having failed to find bankers to turn ship into a museum Abie decided to deliberately sink the ship, a sad end to the MV CITO.
