You've certainly heard about the Flotilla going from Turkey with humanitarian aids to Gaza, including many countries,,

Currently eight ships from several nations including Turkey are doing just that. These ships, the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, have as their goal to provide humanitarian aid to Gaza.
Israel has said that it will not allow this current flotilla to reach Gaza, and it will use military means if necessary to stop the ships.

Two key points are: 1) the Turkish ship will be flying the Turkish flag; and 2) Turkey is a member of NATO. What might happen if Israel were to attack a Turkish flagged vessel carrying humanitarian aid in international waters? The precedent has been established that an attack on one NATO member state will be viewed as an attack on NATO. How would NATO respond to an Israeli attack on a Turkish flagged vessel? Even if the Turkish ship were not flying its flag, how would the world respond to an attack on unarmed vessels carrying humanitarian aid in international waters?

The Gaza Freedom Flotilla is now on its way and is scheduled to reach Gaza this week. Since the U.S. corporate-dominated mainstream media seem to be ignoring this issue, go to freegaza.org or to international media for updates on this looming crisis. There is still time for Israel to avoid an explosive situation by simply complying with international law and honoring its responsibilities to the Palestinians. Unfortunately it is doubtful that Israel will do so.

yesterday again Israêl confirmed its threats to attack the Flotila in case it becomes necessary, it also mentioned that they don't know who and what the Flotilla might be carrying, since there are Algerians on it ( Algeria is now a threat on Israêl)

Let's pray the Flotilla gets to its destination safely,

yeah am watching it on Al Jazeera right now. it happened this morning :( , omg 19 were killed and 29 (so far) injured and they were shot to die cuz they're all shot in their upper body and they're taken prisoners :o
The Algerian ships didn't arrive yet , I hope they're safe Insha'Allah!!

Wallai I dnt understand hw can no one do anything abt this there were many countries there they can't all be scared of America , U.S and Israel vs the rest of the world .. come on now!! :pal:


let's make Duaa for them Insha'Allah , I hope they will all be able to get out of those Death Prisons Insha'Allah :pray:
What can my enemies possibly do to me? My paradise is in my heart; wherever I go it goes with me, insepa­rable from me. For me, prison is a place of (religious) retreat; ex­ecution is my opportunity for martyrdom; and exile from my town is but a chance to travel ......

Algerians were there , I just saw Algerian flags ....

Israel is saying that those who were aboard the ships were carrying Mass Destruction Weapons ( Water, Food , Medicines ) and therefor they had the right to attack the ships (even though they were on International waters!!!)

so now it's just straight up injustice... The US and Canada issued a statement today

"We feel sorry for the deaths, but we'll need to look into the issue further to understand what happened"

Israeli Prime minister in Ottawa today.. so basically they can't condemn it unless there is "evidence"? PEOPLE WERE UNARMED

wallahi this is a cruel world that im starting to really hate and be a part of :(

They're the biggest LIARS in the History of mankind , they can't even get their story right for God's sake!!

so far everyone of them has his own story smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':S' />

One said that 2 men on that ship rushed to the kitchen and got knifes so they had to open fire .

Another said that they had guns and opened fire first XD

and Then the 3rd one came along and said that they took the guns by force from the commando and used them against them!!

One of them even said that they attacked them with sticks and pans so the commando force had to attack back , Seriously ???

each story is more ridiculous than the one b4!!!

I think its despicable that the UN statement released was only "reached after hours of discussion as the council deliberated through the night."


And all they came out with was the same thing they say everytime: Regret loss of life, deeply sad, want a full investigation..


They really don't want to hurt Israels feelings at any cost.


The sad thing is that it would not have been much of an international issue if life had not been lost.

Ps: Does anyone else think its a co-incidence that news of a senior alqaeeda leader being killed is released today/yesterday.
A day spent without learning is a day wasted

I heard yes2day on aljazeera what the witnesses have said, they treated them like they were animals..
They told this one guy to sign a statement that he entered israel land illegally !!!!
Also..I heard some countries stopped their diplomatic relations with isreal because of this..
But why would Israel do such thing when they know what the reaction of the world is gonna be ??
@Sara: The arab world will never do anything, all the presidents are scared about their positions...
