Before I point out why these women knew they were going to be stopped even before they set sail it was all an exercise of incitement of hatred towards Israel and hugely disappointing for the Israeli hate brigade that the Israeli Navy used no violence.
A few points you should know, this blockade is carried out jointly between Israel and Egypt and is carried for the very same reasons that the murderess tunnels into Israel and Egypt are shut down. The uneducated accuse Israel of keeping the Palestinians as prisoners in Gaza. This again just shows up their ignorance of the situation. Israel boarders to Gaza are opened daily for Palestinians to pass into Israel for work. Please don't ask me why they are stopped and search because THAT is not worthy of a reply. Its Egypt's boarder to Gaza that is firmly shut. But as I say unless you can blame Israel it's not worth blaming anyone else!
Now back to the flotilla. Unfortunately this is a boat that should have been call 'Look At Me I'm A Hero' as Gaza has as much food and medical supplies as is needed thanks to Israels cross boarder delivery of tons of food and medical supplies every week into Gaza. So what the fuck are these so called heroes bringing into Gaza.
2. The Israeli's have offered safe passage into the port of Ashdod where most of the food that is delivered into Gaza lands and from there the supplies will be brought to Gaza. But NO the women refused because then they wouldn't be seen to be modern day heroes and after all surely that was the sole purpose of the exercise. .
So do Israel and Egypt have the right to stop a admitted blockade breakers in International water? NO said George Galloway . So I thought I would do some research.
Many legal assessments of the Gaza flotilla raid were published subsequent to the event. International law experts (and non-lawyers) studded the legality of the action by Israel. Most agree that Israel is entitled to impose and enforce a naval blockade, that Israel can intercept a ship in international waters headed for a belligerent territory, that Israel may use force when intercepting such ships, and that there must be a proportional relationship between the threat and response. The force necessary to respond to violent resistance and whether the force that was used was proportionate were disputed.
So who came up with this answer. Sorry George this group is just slightly more qualified than you: Some, such as law experts Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz, Chicago Law School Professor Eric Posner, and Johns Hopkins International Law and Diplomacy Professor Ruth Wedgwood, said that the naval blockade, the boarding in international waters, and the use of force were in accord with long-standing international law. Dershowitz compared the blockade with the U.S. blockade of Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis and Posner with the Coalition blockade of Iraq during the first Gulf War.
They concluded that (1) the blockade was legal, based on the principle of self-defense, (2) Israel was "justified in stopping vessels even outside its territorial waters," (3) Israel's decision to board the vessels with such force was within their rights (4) Israeli forces "faced significant, organized and violent resistance from a group of passengers" that required them to use force for their own protection.
Bad news for the 'experts, Russel Brand, George Galloway and Sooty' but of course they will disagree . Why because they want to.
MORE BAD NEWS FOR THE ISRAELI HATE MOB:
A massive blow to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, a Spanish High Court of the Asturias region, upheld a decision last week, declaring a Langreo City Council agreement to boycott Israel illegal.
This marks the first time that a High Court in Spain has issued a judgment relating to BDS, thanks to the legal actions brought forth by ACOM, a pro-Israel lobby group working to combat BDS in Spain.
Things keep getting better.
THE IDF SEND NEW YEAR GREETINGS TO YOU ALL.
