    A Statement from the Israeli Peace Movement

     

    Uri Avnery: this night a crime was perpetrated in the middle of the sea, by order of the government of Israel and the IDF Command

    A warlike attack against aid ships and deadly shooting at peace and humanitarian aid activists

    It is a crazy thing that only a government that crossed all red lines can do

    “Only a crazy government that has lost all restraint and all connection to reality could something like that – consider ships carrying humanitarian aid and peace activists from around the world as an enemy and send massive military force to international waters to attack them, shoot and kill.

    “No one in the world will believe the lies and excuses which the government and army spokesmen come up with,” said former Knesset member Uri Avnery of the Gush Shalom movement. Gush Shalom activists together with activists of other organizations are to depart at 11:00 from Tel Aviv to protest in front of the prepared detention facility where the international peace activists will be brought.

    Greta Berlin, the spokeswoman for the flotilla organizers located in Cyprus, told Gush Shalom activists that the Israeli commandos landed by helicopter on the boats and immediately opened fire.

    This is a day of disgrace to the State of Israel, a day of anxiety in which we discover that our future was entrusted to a bunch of trigger-happy people without any responsibility.

    This day is a day of disgrace and madness and stupidity without limit, the day the Israeli government took care to blacken the name of the country in the world, adding convincing evidence of aggressiveness and brutality to Israel’s already bad international image, discouraging and distancing the few remaining friends.

    Indeed, today a provocation took place off the coast of Gaza – but the provocateurs were not the peace activists invited by the Palestinians and seeking to reach Gaza. The provocation was carried out by Navy ships commandos at the bidding of the Israeli government, blocking the way of the aid boats and using deadly force.

    It is time to lift the siege on the Gaza Strip, which causes severe suffering to its residents. Today the Israeli government ripped the mask of its face with its own hands and exposed the fact that Israel did not “disengage” from Gaza. Real disengagement from the area does not go together with blocking the access to it or sending soldiers to shoot and kill and wound those who try to get there.

    The State of Israel promised in the Oslo Accords 17 years ago to enable and encourage the establishment of a deep water port in Gaza, through which Palestinians could import and export freely to develop their economy. It’s time to realize this commitment and open the Port of Gaza.

    Only after the Gaza port will be open to free and undisturbed movement, just like the Ashdod and Haifa ports, will Israel really have disengaged from the Gaza Strip. Until then, the world will continue – and rightly so – to consider the Gaza Strip under Israeli occupation and the State of Israel as responsible for the fate of the people living there.

    1. Do what is righteous in my sight

      What is needed my child
      Is the grace to forgive
      The humility to each acknowledge our wrongdoings
      The compassion to understand one another
      the humanity to grieve together
      The wisdom to accept each other
      And the vision to build a shared future
      I n the full knowledge that
      I made you all
      I love each of you
      I want every person to prosper
      I shall shower my blessings on all

      So
      Put down your arms
      Take away the blockades
      Give me your hurts and enmities
      Emabrace one another as friends
      Prosper one another as partners
      And make your God happy
      Do what is righteous in my sight
      Live in peace together

      Shalom

    2. Despite its facade, this was not a peaceful flotilla. It’s purpose
      was to provoke and trap the IDF in an international incident. It
      was a well-planned and executed lynching. The flotilla was advised
      prior to is embarkation that it would not be allowed to reach Gaza.
      As the ships approached, Israel repeatedly instructed the Turkish
      ship to change course toward the Israeli port of Ashdod so that the
      cargo and passengers may be inspected. The ship refused, leaving no
      alternative for Israel but to interdict and board the ship. Watch
      the video.

      “What you’ll see is an IDF soldier fast roping down to a ship, and
      literally immediately being beaten to the ground and attacked. Fire
      bombs are thrown at soldiers, soldiers are attacked by mobs, and
      speared by poles. There was no attempt to determine the soldiers
      intentions, to cooperate, to allow a search. Furthermore, there was
      no lag time at all—this was a premeditated, organized ambush and
      assault on the Israeli Navy.” [Tufts Roundtable] Instead of
      peaceful humanitarian workers, Israeli soldiers encountered armed
      jihadists. As shown in this second video, they were chanting about
      killing Jews. Watch this:
      http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=2323 Israel has
      every right and obligation to protect its citizens. The purpose of
      the Gaza blockade is to keep out Hamas and other terrorists that
      ruthlessly rule Gaza. Despite the goals of this clearly defined and
      relentless enemy, Israel regularly delivers humanitarian aid to
      Gaza citizens including food, medicine, fuel and construction
      material. Hamas diverts most of this to support its terrorist
      agenda which has included continuous rocket launching at Israeli
      towns and the city of Ashkelon. This unfortunate incident and loss
      of life was the result of a premeditated assault on the sovereignty
      and security of Israel.
