Israel Battles Gaza Flotilla on Two Fronts (via Wallwritings)

Great read on the current situation of the US Boat to Gaza “The Audacity of Hope.”

Israel Battles Gaza Flotilla on Two Fronts By James M. Wall A year ago, the Israeli Defense Force handed Israel one of its worst media defeats in modern history. Israeli commandos, filled with their government’s propaganda that Israel’s security was at stake, landed on the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara, ready for battle and determined to keep the ship from breaking Israel’s control over Gaza’s shores. Nine Turkish citizens were killed, one of whom was a Turkish-American. This year Israel took … Read More

Freedom Flotilla Activist denies “Terrorist” Tag of Israel

Israel and its lobby, in order to crush the global uproar against its illegal commando operation on Freedom Flotilla, has started referring to the activists on board Marvi Marmara as “Terrorists.” As much insane this may sound to the general public, here the activists gives a much clearer picture (prepare to face his boldness):

Note: There is a Jewish Flotilla scheduled for July to break the inhuman Israeli siege of Gaza.

The German-Jewish organization Jewish Voice for Peace in the Middle East is preparing a Jewish flotilla to the Gaza Strip. “We intend to leave around July,” a member of the organization, Kate Leitrer, said to Ynet. “We have one small craft so far, in which there will be between 12 and 16 people, mostly Jews.”

Leitrer, herself Jewish, said there was great interest in joining. “Getting another boat means more expenses, and we’re discussing this possibility,” she said. “Because of limited space, there will be school equipment, candy, and mainly musical equipment, and there’ll be musicians aboard who’ll teach the children of Gaza. They need to see that Jews are not what how they are drawn in their eyes.”

Leitrer also claimed that Israel acted criminally in its lethal raid on the Gaza flotilla last Monday.

“The head of UNRRA (United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration) appealed to the world to send ships due to the shortage of important supplies in Gaza,” she said. “By stopping the flotilla, Israel acted criminally. Israel must not act like pirates.”

Freedom Flotilla: Humanitarian Aid to Gaza is a Sin and Crime against God

By Umer Sultan

Israel attacked the aid ship directed towards Gaza, leaving about 19 people dead and 60 wounded. The Israeli Defense Forces used live ammunition on the ship at the unarmed solidarity activists, mostly from Turkey.

The stormed ship (Mavi Marmara) was leading five other aid ships and had solidarity activists, aid leaders, and journalist from different countries aboard. At this moment there is no news as to who is dead and wounded. 2 Pakistani journalists [video] are among those missing and one of them is Talat Hussein from Pakistani AAJ TV, a very critical, outspoken and respected journalist in Pakistan.

Turkey, the long friend of Israel got really ticked off at the military strike by Israel and has pulled Turkish ambassador from Israel. Turkey has also threatened Israel, even with a possibility that Turkey will send more aid ships with the escort of Turkish Navy…you know what that could mean right! Greece has cancelled its joint military exercise. Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan said:

“It should be known that we will not stay silent and unresponsive in the face of this inhuman state terror,” Press TV.

President Obama has only this to say:
