Israeli Piracy

An action alert from the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs:

Watch this video of the Israeli navy attacking, boarding and hijacking the Spirit of Humanity in international waters on June 30, and decide for yourself if Israel has violated international and maritime laws. Israeli authorities confiscated most of the cameras and film from internationals documenting this attack. They missed one....

The Israeli government also hijacks Palestinian fishing boats, in Palestinian territorial waters, kidnaps the fishermen, and sends its military out to shoot to wound and kill them as they struggle to make a living.

After watching this video, you will be convinced that Israel has committed acts of piracy against Palestinians and against internationals. No other country would be allowed to do what Israel does on a daily basis.

I hope you read my piece on this a few days ago? It is all about just what I suspected. They do not want ANYONE see them stealing Gas from Gaza in conjunction with Egypt and Britain.

This really got serious in 2000 right after they found a HUGE gas reserve out under GAZAN waters. Then they began to go after the fishermen. And, after they got into this, they cut gas into Gaza by about 70%.

Another cover up begins to emerge that is much bigger than "just" bullying the fishermen. When they began Operation Lead I had a feeling there was more than "mere" genocide and "lessons" involved.

Galid Shalitt is just a political tool to rally the civilians around. What matters to them is the gold of gas.

More people need to learn about this "secret".
