1. International humanitarian law prohibits starvation of civilians as a method of warfare and...it is also prohibited to impose collective punishment on civilians,"
2. Israel's blockade of Gaza was illegal
Not only are these core ideas not presented in all of the U.S. media I've seen -- the spin is actually how the Israeli Massacre at Sea was all the fault of the aid workers, or Hamas.
We keep hearing the big lie and not the truth.
Who the heck, even, is Rachel Corrie?
Now we find out (because I didn't know) she was a USA female college student who sat down in front of an Israeli IDF bulldozer, trying to prevent the ongoing demolition of Palestinian homes.
The bulldozer ran over her.
There was no other way of removing a young woman from in front of a bulldozer? She couldn't be dragged away?
No: Like the Massacre at Sea we see clearly - it's always the 'hard fist,' the harshest response, the Nazi solution.
Seized 'Rachel Corrie' ship
Former UN assistant secretary general Denis Halliday and Nobel peace laureate Mairéad Maguire were among the Irish citizens on board the 1,200-tonne ship, which was shadowed by Israeli ships since dawn.
The crew had rejected a deal to unload its cargo in Israel and accompany it across the border.
the ship would have no part in a deal that involved legitimising the siege of Gaza.
