By Richard FalkThis incident should serve as a wakeup call for a complicit international community. There are three political imperatives that need to emerge with a sense of urgency:
condemnation of the Israeli attack and an accompanying demand for the immediate end of the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip, appropriately by a decision in the UN Security Council;
an authoritative launching of an investigation of war crimes allegations against Israel by the International Criminal Court;
the widest possible endorsement and strengthening of the already growing worldwide boycott, divestment, and sanctions campaign directed at Israel’s occupation policies in Palestinian Territories.
