Reactions to the Israeli Attack on Freedom Flotilla

By Palestine Chronicle Staff

"....Greta Berlin, Free Gaza Movement Spokesperson: “It's disgusting that they have come on board and attacked civilians. We are civilians. How could the Israeli military attack civilians like this? Do they think that because they can attack Palestinians indiscriminately they can attack anyone?” (BBC)....

.....Ramzy Baroud, Palestinian-US journalist and author of My Father was a Freedom Fighter, Gaza’s Untold Story: “What Israel has done tonight is most barbaric. It’s an unmitigated crime against humanity and no one with a living conscious and a shred of humanity can stand idle as a sophisticated army attacks and slaughters international peace activists carrying medicine and toys while on their way to supporting a besieged nation. However, the murder of those activists, and the wounding and the arrest of hundreds will forever cement the ties between Palestine and international peace and justice forces the world over. Starting tonight, this conflict is no longer Israel vs. Palestine, but a criminal state vs. humanity.” ("
