Israeli Commandos Electro-Torture Ship to Gaza Activists


Israeli commandos attacked humanitarian activists.

by Stephen Lendman

On October 20, masked Israeli commandos lawlessly interdicted Ship to Gaza Estelle in international waters. It was over 30 nautical miles from Gaza's coast when intercepted.

Netanyahu praised their criminality. He accused on board activists of trying to "delegitimize Israel." He also claimed "there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza." 

He's a world class thug. He exceeds the worst of Ariel Sharon and previous hardline leaders. He's an embarrassment to democratic governance. He deplores peace and international law inviolability.

Gaza's blockade is illegal. Collective punishment is prohibited. Fourth Geneva's Article 33 states:

"No protected person may be punished for an offence he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited."

June 14 marked the blockade's fifth anniversary. Around 1.7 million people face slow-motion genocide. Over half of them are children. Gazans are isolated.
