A new book tells the story of how the ships to Gaza movement was born.
The latest United Nations report on last year’s lethal flotilla incident ignores crucial facts and makes for a sad day for the global rule of law.
Nine people were killed when Israel intercepted Gaza-bound aid ships last year. Now a new flotilla is planned, but Instead of condemning the murder, the Obama administration appears to be giving the right-wing Israeli government a green light to flout international law and human rights.
The author will shortly be setting sail on the next Gaza Freedom Flotilla.
Israel’s decision to deploy its version of the U.S. Navy Seals to interdict the Gaza flotilla was — and is — a recipe for disaster.
This event will focus on the attack on the Gaza-bound Freedom Flotilla in May 2010 and the ongoing, illegal blockade of Gaza. We will hear from Professor Ahmet Dogan, the father of Furkan Dogan, an 18-year-old American citizen killed during the brutal attack on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, and from advocates who will discuss the current situation in Gaza and their efforts to get answers about U.S. knowledge of, and response to, the attack.
A growing grassroots movement is using the techniques of the anti-apartheid movement to challenge U.S. support for Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territories.
The country just agreed to let the UN conduct an investigation of the flotilla attack. But don’t get too excited.
We need leadership that can reveal the invisible hand of government and remind the public that government is the instrument by which we the people regulate ourselves.
Is trading the investigation of the Gaza flotilla incident for easing of Israel’s blockade of Gaza the right move?
