The massacre of solidarity activists of the Free Gaza flotilla by Israeli armed forces in international waters was a cowardly attack that further demonstrates Israel's arrogant contempt for the rule of law.
The flotilla carried aid in the form of school and medical supplies that are desperately needed in blockaded Gaza. Hundreds of activists from around the globe were present including Holocaust survivors.
This blatent example of piracy is simplely the latest in a serious of crimes committed by Israel. Last year over 1,400 Palestinians were murdered when Israeli forces commenced a full scale invasion of Gaza. Eariler this year Israel carried out the assassination of Hamas representative Mahmoud Mahboub in Dubai.
How long can Israel carry on like this?
For too long western governments have suported the genocidal state of Israel, while calls for inquiries are made when these events occur, nothing is fundalmentally changed.
Demands must be made for economic, cultural and military boycotts of Israel just as there were of apartheid South Africa.
