Israeli Navy Prepare to Murder More Humans Trying to Break the Illegal Gaza Blockade

A New Flotilla Steams Towards Gaza

Aboard the Al Awda

“Islands Brygge,” an idyllic harbor park that stretches along the east bank of Copenhagen, was alive with a celebratory crowd on Monday as three ships were about to steam towards Gaza. The 2018 Freedom Flotilla—two ships from Sweden and one from Norway — will call at ports in Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal and Italy before traveling through the Mediterranean Sea to its final destination: Gaza harbor.

Volunteer boat guides explained the history and mission of the Gaza Flotilla movement, which has organized a number of journeys to demonstrate solidarity with the people of Gaza and break the illegal economic siege. An independent U.N. panel and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) say the blockade violates the Geneva Conventions and is illegal.
Israel dragged the last Israeli settlers from Gaza and withdrew the Israeli Defense Force in 2005. When the Palestinian Authority lost a 2006 election in Gaza to Hamas, Israel imposed the illegal blockade. A considerable number of young Danish people learned about Gaza for the first time and walked away with new political awareness of the injustices suffered by Gaza’s children, who are denied the same carefree life enjoyed by Danish children...

I feel proud and privileged to join a group of international passengers aboard the Norwegian ship “Al Awda,” (“The Return” in Arabic) as we prepared to embark on the first leg of our journey. Along our route we hope to raise awareness and educate people about the plight of Palestinians, especially in Gaza, who are denied the basic freedoms and human rights the rest of us take for granted.
Earlier this month as Gazans held The Great March of Return to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Nakba (or the Catastrophe) — in which 800,000 Palestinians were forcibly driven from their land and homes by Israel in 1948 — Israeli snipers cut down peaceful demonstrators one by one, killing hundreds and maiming thousands, generating shock and outrage around the world and providing further incentive for people to support the burgeoning Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement (BDS).

Targeting Athletes

Israel seems to have reserved a special brand of sadism for Gaza’s athletes — several promising young cyclists and soccer players have become amputees, since Israel refused to allow them to leave Gaza to obtain the necessary medical attention that would have saved their legs. Reports of such heinous acts — documented widely in social media posts by those on the ground in Gaza — have served to further isolate Israel internationally and alienate peace-loving people around the world, who deplore the moral depravity of its government.
Reaching the harbor of Gaza (which means “jewel” in Arabic) should be as simple and straightforward as entering any harbor in Germany, France or Spain. But instead, Israel has denied Gazans use of their own harbor for commerce, trade and travel, and has bombed it on numerous occasions, along with their electric power plants and sewage systems, making life miserable for the local population and rendering 97 percent of the drinking water toxic.

As the Freedom Flotilla embarks on its peace odyssey, it is our hope to bring a light of hope and solidarity to the people of Gaza, who deserve the peaceful, dignified and joyful existence that is their right.

Further notes...

When the terrorist invaders finally left Gaza, Uncle Sucker paid them a bonus of $200,000 each.

And the Israeli Occupation paid them immense sums of money also--most likely gotten from Congress--like compensating at a rate of $50,000 per dunam (approximately $202,000 per acre) for the land they stole from the indigenous Palestinians in Gaza.

200K per acre of land is a pretty sweet deal, considering you can get good farmland in the USA for around $5,000 per acre.

Just another day living under the Terrorist Boot Heel of Zionist Israel Tyranny.

These are extremely brave people, considering what Terrorist Israel did to another Gaza Aid Convoy, boarding the Mavi Marmara and brutally murdering in cold-blood nine peace loving humans trying to ease Gaza's suffering.
On May 31, 2010, while in international waters, approximately 130km off the coast of Israel, the ships comprising the "flotilla" were boarded by at least 13 Israeli naval commandos from both speedboat and helicopter. The argument raised by the Israeli military is that they had acted in self-defence. This does not explain however how the majority of those killed were shot multiple times, including in the back, and at close range.

There is, of course, significant dispute as to what occurred, and as to who initiated the violence. The activists involved will say that Israeli soldiers began shooting immediately.
The Israeli soldiers however state that they only opened fire after being attacked with clubs and knives by those activists on the boat. Despite a number of passengers on the flotilla having recorded the events with still and video cameras all the footage (and the equipment) was seized by the Israeli authorities and remains in their possession. A video released by the Israeli military conveniently stops just before the shooting begins.
