The entire world joined with Israel in 1972 when Black September radicals murdered Israeli Olympic athletes in Munich. The world was never told of the torture prisons in Israel or the truth about the 1967 War, the "land grab" and the ethnic cleansing that followed. Even still, the Munich attack was an unthinkable horror, one Israel has now duplicated with the execution slaying of peace activists and humanitarian aid workers. The Israeli paper, Hareetz has published the autopsy results.
As the tv networks here give unlimited airtime to its apologists, the message rolls out that Israel is permitted every illegal act in the lexicon of international law, from acts of violence against a civilian population (the people of Gaza, starved under permanent blockade) to piracy on the high seas and the lethal attacks by Israeli commandos on the relief flotilla. The guiding purpose in this tsunami of drivel is that the viewers should be brainwashed into thinking Israel somehow has the right and the duty to act at will as the mad-dog of the planet.
UN-proposed commission into flotilla raid is dismissed as global pressure grows for Israel to ease its blockade of Gaza. Israel's prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, today dismissed a UN proposal for an international commission to investigate last week's assault on a flotilla of aid ships.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a special meeting with his cabinet to discuss the growing international demands for an international probe to investigate last week’s Gaza aid ship attack. An Israeli attack on the Mavi Marmara left at least nine aid workers killed and several others wounded. The US, as well as the entire UN Security Council, have demanded an international probe into the incident, though earlier today Israel insisted it would not allow this to happen.
Barack Obama, the US president, has made a third trip to Louisiana to meet with officials involved in the oil clean-up operation in the Gulf of Mexico. He warned British energy giant BP on Saturday not to shortchange local residents who have lost their livelihood - while paying out billions of dollars in dividends to company shareholders.
Israel has begun deporting passengers and crew it seized on board an aid ship aiming to break the blockade of the Gaza Strip. Eleven activists and eight crew were detained on Saturday after the Malaysia-funded Irish ship, the Rachel Corrie, ignored warnings to divert to the Israeli port of Ashdod
Christopher King argues that beneath Israel’s litany of crimes against the Palestinians, and most recently its murder of humanitarian workers aboard the Gaza-bound international aid flotilla, lies the fact of its own illegality. The true nature of the so-called freedom-loving, democratic state of Israel is now clear to the world following its military attack on Gaza, its illegal blockade of Gaza with terrible suffering of its population and now the murder of nine humanitarian activists in course of pirating the Free Gaza Flotilla in international waters.
Uzi Dayan, former deputy Chief of General Staff in Israel, says the Jewish state should consider a possible Turkish military escort of Gaza aid ships an act of war. “If the Turkish prime minister joins such a flotilla,” Dayan told Israeli army radio, according to the Jerusalem Post, “we should make clear beforehand this would be an act of war, and we would not try to take over the ship he was on, but would sink it.”
