ISRAEL SEIZES FREE GAZA VESSEL WITH NOBEL LAUREATE AND CYNTHIA MICKINNEY ABOARD from Progressive Review
Israeli Occupation Forces attacked and boarded the Free Gaza Movement boat, the Spirit of Humanity, abducting 21 human rights workers from 11 countries, including Nobel laureate Mairead Maguire and former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. The passengers and crew are being forcibly dragged toward Israel.
What is 'dangerous' about this boat? It certainly doesn't look like a warship. Its purpose wasn't a secret. The ship was openly loaded with humanitarian supplies, ie, medical supplies, olive trees, children toys, etc. It was also carrying peace activists, including a US Presidential candidate and a Nobel Laureate. Given the nature of the boat, its cargo and its passengers, it was clearly no threat to anyone.
Yet, the Israelis stopped and boarded the boat, kidnapped those on board, and seized the boat and the humanitarian supplies.
