Enough is enough; the state of Israel has now proven to the world that it is incapable of living peacefully with its neighbors and it now must pay the price for its continuing aggressive actions. The only truly effective way for the world to deal with this pariah state: it must be ostracized and isolated through world boycotts and sanctions.
Yes, Israel has done it once again, another brutal attack. This time it illegally entered international waters and attacked a humanitarian fleet of ships, flying the flags of Ireland, Turkey and Greece heading toward Gaza, loaded with tons of badly needed materials and supplies. According to reports, Israeli commandos boarded the ships and then all hell broke loose; ten or more activists were killed and many others wounded. Hundreds of activists were then captured and imprisoned in Israel.
Israel has truly become a pariah state; definition: A pariah state is one whose conduct is considered to be inconsistent with international norms of behavior. This term is closely related to the term rogue state. The nation of Israel today very much resembles the nation of South Africa during its period of "apartheid," an official policy of racial segregation that South Africa practiced between 1948 and 1994.
That system of apartheid brutally repressed non-white citizens by curtailing their rights, causing a great deal of violence and unrest that continued unabated until a comprehensive trade embargo by nations of the world ended it. South Africans used military force and intimidation to deny the rights of non-whites and Israel is doing the very same thing in even more violent and repressive actions against Hamas and the people of Gaza.
