    Letter to all the Presidents of the Governments of United States,Ireland, Greece, Turkey, Norway, England,

    To take in their hands the protection of the Gaza Flotilla, that in their Humanitarian Missions were attacked by Israel Navy War Ships in International Waters. The world has to speak up and bring Israel to face International Justice.
    Israel has not rights to get in the way to the humanitarian Gaza Flotilla, as Israel have withdrawed from Gaza in 2005.
    The world is in uproar for the criminal actions of Israel,
    Nobody should be above the law.

      We can only hope that the lives of the innocents killed in this shocking incident will not be in vain. Surely the world community will not only condemn Israel, and its total disregard for human rights, but will hold the Israeli Government to account and prosecute those responsible. While ever this rogue state, Israel, is allowed continue its acts of aggression against the Palestinians and kill anyone opposing them, they jeopardise world security in a way not paralled since Adoph Hilter.

    Adelante, ha llegado la hora de desnudar el sionismo israelita, “el maldito pueblo de dios,” que asesina niños ancianos y mujeres indefensas, hoy les ha tocado a ustedes inmortalizar con sus vidas la causa Palestina, mañana nos tocará a nosotros poner nuestras vidas a esta noble causa. Dios no ha muerto, ni calentura tiene. Viva Palestina siempre inmortal.

    I have been following the blog since like 4 or so, I just can’t believe this. It is beyond words to describe how easily people fail to recognize that the side they think is opposing them is still comprised of humans. They are still people. I just don’t understand….

    Pirates. demand he immediate convening of an international Court of Admiralty, and the gallows for each and every one of the participants in this unprovoked attack on unarmed aid ships.

    If these Israelis were Somalis, they would already be dead.

    quiero decir que esto ocurre porque se le permitió a los israelies desde ya demasiado tiempo actuar impunemente matando árabes, del libano, la tierra de mi abuelo y de jordania, de egipto y ahora a los palestinos que desde 1948 vienen soportando el tormento, el genocidio palestino y lo peor, el infanticidio. es terrible que en casi siglo XXI siga la esclavitud de la gente palestina en su propia tierra que tiene por historia y por religión, invadida por terribles asesinos despiadados y encima que quieren mentirle a la gente del mundo. Hoy con el ataque a los hermanos que iban para ayudar humanitariamente a Palestina, quedó demostrado totalmente que los terroristas son los sionistas, los verdugos de los palestinos, que hasta son capaces de autoatentarse para acusar a otros, que ni siquiera tienen dignidad para dar la cara y decirle al mundo sus crimenes que aprendieron de sus antes verdugos los nazis. Terrible imagen quedará para el mundo de este momento en que podrian haber dado un paso atrás en sus planes malvados y permitir que se les entregaran a los palestinos sus alimentos y medicamentos y las sillas de ruedas para tantos discapacitados por las bombas que arrojan. A LAS NACIONES UNIDAS LES QUEDA HACER JUSTICIA.

    This is disgusting, it can’t be this easy to kill somebody. The governent of all countries should do something to stop this ASAP. Hey England stop sleeping and start doing some thing. Let our votes count by seeing you saving people dying no matter where they are from… They have allready killed lots of Palestanians and now they are heading to kill others next it would be us the english.

  7. EMMA

    What a huge censure,,,, disgusting,. someone needs to stand up and finish this. Isreal is not folowing the rules they are just doing what they want to do. It can’t be this easy to end lives.

    1948-2010: Israeli troops killing inocents in Palestine = 4th Reich
    1939-1945: Nazi troops killing inocent hebrews, gypsies, communists,… = 3rd Reich

  9. Lk

    Latest count is that twenty people are dead.

    You can watch the live feeds from Al Zareera. The US media is giving minimal coverage and trying to downplay it as much as they can.

    I just saw the headline to an earlier thread: “Israel surrounds aid ship and wont let it in” and thought to myself ‘I wonder how long till they open fire.’

    Then on the next page, I saw this.

  11. Russel

    Just watch, Everytime there is a story about the Caholic Priests and Molestation of Children on the Front pages, and in the headline news…. ISRAEL is attacking someone in Gaza , Lebanon etc. The Zionist owned media knows how to distract people from the REAL NEWS GOING ON !…. There are MORE Child molestations documented by Jewish Rabbis … so why NOT write about THAT while you are murdering people in Gaza ?
