Activists Challenge Israeli Lawlessness

Israel wage war against human rights and other  democrat values.

by Stephen Lendman

For decades, Israel has literally gotten away with murder. Crimes of war and against humanity repeat regularly. Human and civil rights are spurned. 

Anyone not experiencing it firsthand can't imagine the ruthlessness of occupation harshness. Besieged Gazans suffer most. For over five years, they've been lawlessly isolated and suffocated.

Former Ariel Sharon associate, Dov Weissglass, once said, "The idea is to put Palestinians on a diet, but not make them die of hunger." In other words, make them suffer. Francis Boyle, Ilan Pappe, this writer, and others call it slow-motion genocide.

Call it anything you like but understand what's going on. Why else would activists risk life and limb to help. No one pays them. They're given nothing in return. They're involved because it's important to help. 

They're true heroes. Only friends, family, and supporters know them. Media scoundrels ignore them. Ship to Gaza Sweden (Estelle) activists are some of the best.

They knew the risks but took them. In international waters, Israeli commandos attacked them. In custody they were harshly treated. Their humanitarian cargo, personal possessions, and vessel were confiscated. 

They were kidnapped and imprisoned for several days. Israel brutalized them for doing the right thing.

They're now free, either heading home, or perhaps there resting and recovering from their ordeal. Israel never makes it easy. That's how rogue states operate.

Gush Shalom works for peace, reconciliation, ending Israel's occupation, and sovereign Palestine within pre-1967 borders. On October 22, its press release headlined "Israeli activists detained on the 'Estelle' released," saying:

"Elik Elhanan: excessive force was used against us, without any reason"

"Electric shocks by taser out of vengeful hatred"

"A Greek MP was beaten by Shabak Security Service interrogators"
