The blockade is illegal.
Isreal must either declare war on Gaza, or take posession. Due to mass perception considerations, they are not willing to do either.
The Blockade is illegal, and invalid. Any and all maritime traffic is allowed to the Gaza strip waters. The fact that Isreal is preventing them,
boarding, assaulting, arresting and kidnapping from international waters, makes it an act of war against the country where the ship is registered. In
this case, Ireland, which is both a NATO and EU member country.
The Irish ship Rachel Corrie, has the internationally recognised right to dock in Gaza, and trade with the Gazans as they wish. Isreal have NO
DOMINION over Gaza, they refuse any legal responsibility, but claim the right to utterly control (in a highly negative way) any and all contact with
anyone else on earth.
It is morally and legally wrong, and both the Irish and Isreal are fully aware of this.
The Irish ship, MV Rachel Corrie, was tampered with by the Israeli Defense Forces according to Colonel Itzik Turgeman.
The Rachel Corrie was planned to be the first ship to arrive into Gazan waters last weekend but was delayed due to mechanical problems now suspected
to be a form of sabotage.
An Israel newspaper reported “A senior officer in the Israel Defence Forces hinted that the IDF sabotaged the engines of five ships, saying “they
took care of them.” The Colonel also told the newspaper that the army decided not to sabotage the Turkish ferry, Mavi Mamara which was attacked on
Piracy is a very well documented crime. You have no rights to self defense if you have invaded a ship, which is sovereign territory, somebody else'ss
territory. In fact, the only rights you have, traditionally is death, by hanging, traditionally.
