Latest Update 1030:
Israel is trying to defend itself by saying they were attacked by activists with iron bars and knives, however there seems to be little evidence to suggest that the activists held any dangerous weapons. What would you do if heavily armed soldiers holding guns and looking threatening decided to invade your ship? Would you not defend yourself with any tool you had?
Danny Ayalon, Deputy Foreign Minister for Israel, has tried to justify the attacks on a Sky interview saying the peace activists have no respect for international waters. This is the same man who previously tried branded the Freedom Flotilla as being anti-Semitic and as a ‘delegitimisation of Israel‘…
the BBC website is still reporting only two people killed whilst other news outlets confirm that 16 peace activists have already been brutally murdered by Israeli forces. See this screenshot.
Israel’s Channel 10 private TV puts the death toll at about 14, with other reports saying that up to 16 people have been killed. Israel has used live ammunition against unarmed civilians on the Flotilla. Israel has so far declined to comment.
The BBC website finally reports on it but tries to misrepresent what is happening by using the words “It is not clear whether the fighting is ongoing” when clearly it is an attack by Israel on an unarmed ship not a two sided fight. All throughout their report the show a pro-Israeli bias by trying to mention Hamas rocket attacks but declining to mention Israel’s ongoing and brutal assault on Gaza. This is sickening.
We have just heard that Israel has opened fire on the Freedom Flotilla – having just checked the BBC site, normally the first to get breaking news, has nothing on this breaking story but MPACUK can confirm that the Flotilla has come under fire from Israeli war ships, 3 dead and 30 injured are the first reports.
The captains words are “Please stop firing we are unarmed civilians” – it didn’t stop the the Israeli Army.
For continuous updates throughout the day keep checking the MPACUK website on what direct action you can take to put a stop to Israel’s murderous actions.
I’m off to Downing Street, join me!
