It’s not acceptable what the Israelis did. They attacked the Gaza flotilla on international waters. It’s not acceptable to say that there should be a better route for the activists to enter Gaza – it’s not acceptable that there are people starving as a result of illegal occupation of a country. It is not acceptable that the rest of the world give in to a bully, finding other means of giving people basic food and aid to appease Israel. It is not acceptable that there are people starving and destitute as a result of another state.
I try not to be political on this blog, but this attack on the Gazan flotilla is unacceptable. I pray for the safety of those on board, especially for the 10 Malaysians who we have no word of contact of their safety. I salute of the heroism of those involved in the Free Palestine movement and I stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people.
