Zestril Free Delivery

Facts Needed to Know About the Israeli Attack on Peace Activists on the Gaza Flotilla http://photos.thefirstpost.co.uk/assets/library/ship--127537274388668600.jpg By Jonathan Cook, zestril free delivery AlterNet Posted on May 31, zestril free delivery 2010, zestril free delivery Printed on June 1, zestril free delivery 2010 http://www.alternet.org/story/147052/ It is quite astounding that Israel has been able to create over the past 12 hours a news blackout, zestril free delivery just as it did with its attack on Gaza 18 months ago, zestril free delivery into which our main media organisations have willingly allowed Israeli spokespeople to step in unchallenged. How many civilians were killed in Israel’s dawn attack on the Gaza-bound flotilla of aid? We still don’t know. How many wounded? Your guess is as good as mine. Zestril free delivery Were the aid activists armed with guns? Yes, zestril free delivery says Israel. Zestril free delivery Were they in cahoots with al-Qaeda and Hamas? Certainly, zestril free delivery says Israel. Zestril free delivery Did the soldiers act reasonably? Of course, zestril free delivery they faced a lynch, zestril free delivery says Israel. If we needed any evidence of the degree to which Western TV journalists are simply stenographers to power, zestril free delivery the BBC, zestril free delivery CNN and others are amply proving it. Zestril free delivery Mark Regev, zestril free delivery Israel’s propagandist-in-chief, zestril free delivery has the airwaves largely to himself. The passengers on the ships, zestril free delivery meanwhile, zestril free delivery have been kidnapped by Israel and are unable to provide an alternative version of events. Zestril free delivery We can guess they will remain in enforced silence until Israel is sure it has set the news agenda. So before we get swamped by Israeli hasbara let’s reiterate a few simple facts: * Israeli soldiers invaded these ships in international waters, zestril free delivery breaking international law, zestril free delivery and, zestril free delivery in killing civilians, zestril free delivery committed a war crime. Zestril free delivery The counter-claim by Israeli commanders that their soldiers responded to an imminent “lynch” by civilians should be dismissed with the loud contempt it deserves. * The Israeli government approved the boarding of these aid ships by an elite unit of commandoes. Zestril free delivery They were armed with automatic weapons to pacify the civilians onboard, zestril free delivery but not with crowd dispersal equipment in case of resistance. Zestril free delivery Whatever the circumstances of the confrontation, zestril free delivery Israel must be held responsible for sending in soldiers and recklessly endangering the lives of all the civilians onboard, zestril free delivery including a baby. Israel has no right to control Gaza’s sea as its own territorial waters and to stop aid convoys arriving that way. Zestril free delivery In doing so, zestril free delivery it proves that it is still in belligerent occupation of the enclave and its 1.5 million inhabitants. Zestril free delivery And if it is occupying Gaza, zestril free delivery then under international law Israel is responsible for the welfare of the Strip’s inhabitants. Zestril free delivery Given that the blockade has put Palestinians there on a starvation diet for the past four years, zestril free delivery Israel should long ago have been in the dock for committing a crime against humanity. Israel chose to direct its deadly assault not only at Palestinians under occupation but at the international community itself. Will our leaders finally be moved to act?
