When it comes to attacking the humanitarian flotilla bound for Gaza, it’s green lights go, says US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
We think that it’s not helpful for there to be flotillas that try to provoke actions by entering into Israeli waters and creating a situation in which the Israelis have the right to defend themselves.
Of course, few nations consider Gaza or its waters to be sovereign Israeli territory, not that it would stop the Israeli Defense Force. Last May, the IDF attacked a similar Gaza-bound flotilla in INTERNATIONAL WATERS, killing 9 activists and imprisoning hundreds more.
Apparently, it’s an act of war just to try and help the people being held captive by the State of Israel. So, regardless of whether or not the freedom flotilla enters Israeli space, they’re likely to meet with heavy resistance.
Best of luck to these brave freedom fighters. Here’s hoping for no casualties and that the world hears of their courage.
