After the flotilla massacre, the Freedom of Palestine has become a human responsibility.
The massacre on board the ‘Mavi Marmara’ in international territorial water in the early hours of June 1, 2010 will change the face of the conflict from an Arab Israeli conflict to a conflict between Israel and the rest of humanity.
Notwithstanding the predictable stance of the United States of America, and their continued bias support for Israel, regardless of what the facts are, the rest of the world is outraged by the cold blooded murder of peaceful humanitarian activists’ some 90 miles from the coast of Gaza last week, which Israel claims to have been in self-defense.
Live videos captured at the time of the attack show Israel soldiers landing from a helicopter, while Israel gunboats encircled the ship.
People onboard the ‘Mavi Marmara’ were woken from their sleep by the sound of gunfire.
“The Middle East is boiling these days”.
These are the words repeated across the Arab media in the aftermath, of what can only be described as the cold blooded killing of unarmed civilians, at the hands of the heavily armed Israeli soldiers.
As the stories from the 600 surviving witnesses to the attack filter through the international media,
the voices of condemnation of Israel grow louder.
