(SouthLebanon) – Does Israel Rule the World?

As this occurred in international waters, it is not only an act of piracy but could also be construed as an ‘act of war’. This attack on unarmed civilian men and women illustrates the moral depths to which the Jewish state has sunk. An Al Jazeera reporter on board the vessel says the Israelis fired live bullets even after a white flag was hoisted. This atrocity and the potential fall-out should merit loud condemnation from the international community … but don’t hold your breath! We have yet to witness the extent of Turkey’s response.

Veterans For Peace Responds to Armed Attack on Aid Flotilla

The world is reacting in righteous outrage at this moment to Israel’s high seas attack on an international aid flotilla, reportedly killing up to 20 people escorting tons of humanitarian aid to Gaza in an effort to break Israel’s three-year blockade. “Made in the U.S.A.” is stamped on the weapons commandos used to kill and wound the international peace activists.

We are saddened and we are angry. At least one of our own members, retired Army Col., Ann Wright, is among the 700 people aboard the boats attacked in the middle of the night. But we cannot say we are very surprised. Palestinians die quietly and unnoticed every day in Gaza, the world’s largest open air prison, as a result of Israel’s blockade and violent repression Read More Here

In creating the Gaza concentration camp where food from humanitarian organizations is allowed in to 1.5 million Palestinians on a basis calculated as the minimum necessary to sustain life, Israel is similarly challenging Nazi achievements. Israel claims that it does not ration food to Gaza on this basis but the calculation exists. We must draw our conclusions from it. Read More Here

(KurtNimmo) – Video: Mavi Marmara Incident Sabotages Peace Process

A few hours after Israeli commandos boarded a Turkish aid ship bound for Gaza and met resistance, the Israeli ambassador to Denmark claimed the flotilla had links to al-Qaeda. “Before the flotilla entered Israeli waters, rumor had it that the organizers (of the aid initiative) had links with the al-Qaeda terrorist network,” Arthur Avnon said from Copenhagen.

Israel has a history of creating and funding Islamic terror groups, including al-Qaeda cells. In 2002, Palestinian security forces arrested a group of Palestinians for collaborating with Israel and posing as operatives of Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaeda terrorist network, the Sydney Morning Herald reported (the original article has since found its way to the memory hole).

(GlobalResearch) – Israel Murders Human Rights Workers Delivering Humanitarian Aid – Prof. Marjorie Cohn

On Sunday, Israel murdered human rights workers who were attempting to deliver 10,000 tons of humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza, because Gaza has been virtually cut off from the outside world by Israel. At least 19 people were reportedly killed and dozens injured when Israeli troops boarded the 6-ship Freedom Flotilla convoy in international waters and immediately fired live ammunition at the people on board the ships. The convoy was comprised of 700 people from 50 nationalities and included a Nobel laureate, members of parliament from Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Turkey and Malaysia, as well as Palestinian members of the Israeli Knesset and a Holocaust survivor.
