Israel kills aid activists in Gaza Flotilla attack

I strongly condemn the Israeli Government for the killing of innocent aid activists in the Gaza Flotilla attack, these ships were operating in international water and on a journey to supply desperately needed aid and medicine for the Gazan people who have suffered from an economic blockade for many years. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families as they come to terms with their loss.

I call on the International community to come together to demand that Israel is held responsible for murdering innocent people and appropriate action from taken by the United Nations for this breach of international law. If Israel claims to be a western democracy but acts like a dictatorship then these murders are the actions of a deplorable Government that clearly has no respect for human life.

I call on the UK Government to do what it can to identify any British citizens on the Ship and take necessary actions to bring them home safely, there should be an international inquiry supported with tough sanctions for Israel to understand it cannot kill innocent people and get away with it.

I call on just people around the world to stand up and demonstrate their abhorrence for these murderous acts. Finally its time for the siege and blockade for Gaza to be lifted.
