'Israel's Ruthless Criminality' - WRI statement on attack on Freedom Flotilla | War Resisters' International


Tom Usher wrote or added | "In view of the involvement of some of our own members in organising this, we also know full well that this flotilla is not a tool of Hamas, let alone of Al Qaeda or any other spectre the Israeli propaganda machine seeks to raise. Knowing the nonviolent preparations undertaken for this flotilla, and knowing a number of the activists involved and their principled commitment to nonviolent forms of action, we suggest that only those who want to excuse Israel can believe that Israeli commandos who boarded the ships were then attacked."

People who went on the Flotilla who were bound and determined to resist using violence in reaction to violence must be differentiated from those who are committed to non-violence even as they defy immoral and inhumane and inhuman dictates of their opposites, in this case namely, the militant Zionists, who have horned their way into Palestine and have been allowed to do so by complicit and equally morally bankrupt regimes such as, among many others but primarily, the Obama administration of the United States.

I take the words of WRI, "those who want to excuse Israel can believe that Israeli commandos who boarded the ships were then attacked," to mean to say that the violence was initiated by the Israeli commandos, under orders from the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, and that passengers on the Flotilla ship the MV Mavi Marmara only return violence for violence albeit non-lethal for inevitably lethal on the part of the Zionists.
