Israel find themselves not guilty of flotilla murders
Gaza aid flotilla raid: Turkey criticises Israel report
Turkey has condemned an Israeli inquiry that said the Israeli navy acted lawfully during a deadly raid on an aid flotilla trying to reach Gaza last May.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the report had neither value nor credibility.
The raid, in which nine Turkish activists were killed, attracted widespread international condemnation.
A separate UN inquiry last year said the navy had shown an "unacceptable level of brutality".
More bloodwash than whitewash, surprise, surprise, Israel find themselves not guilty of anything when they murdered 9 activists on a flotilla that was attempting to end the brutal Gaza blockade, I think Israel's argument to itself to justify these deaths was 'God gave us this land'. End of inquiry.
Let's not forget that the blockade itself borders on a war crime because Israeli's are using it to starve Palestinian children to death, because children grow up into terrorists don't you know and seeing as more than half of Gaza's population are in fact children, that's a lot of potential terrorists Israel needs to cull...
SUFFOCATING GAZA - THE ISRAELI BLOCKADE'S EFFECTS ON PALESTINIANS
Israel's military blockade of Gaza has left more than 1.4 million Palestinian men, women and children trapped in the Gaza Strip, an area of land just 40 kilometres long and 9.5 kilometres wide.
Mass unemployment, extreme poverty and food price rises caused by shortages have left four in five Gazans dependent on humanitarian aid. As a form of collective punishment, Israel’s continuing blockade of Gaza is a flagrant violation of international law.
Let's have a look at the list of banned items into Gaza, remember, these items are banned because of 'terrorism'.
Frozen meat can be imported into Gaza - fresh meat can not! Why? Because fresh meat helps the terrorists!
Candles can be imported into Gaza - toys and schoolbook can not! Why? Because toys and schoolbooks help the terrorists!
Pasta can be imported into Gaza - chocolate can not! Why? Because chocolate helps the terrorists!
Israel is the new Anti-apartheid South Africa, and as such should be shunned diplomatically with the same distaste until their citizens are made aware how unacceptable their land theft and occupation are to the rest of the planet.
And what is our Government doing? Why they allow these occupying passport stealers to set up an embassy here, not surprising when you consider that Murray McCully just set up a Friendly Society with Indonesia in the same week Indonesian forces were caught on tape torturing two priests to death. It's a pity NZ no longer has an independent foreign policy, Murray McCully would have poor David Lange rolling in his grave.
