Despite Israeli claims that their (illegal) takeover of the Canadian and Irish Freedom Waves Gaza flotilla was benign, reports surfacing from activists tell a harsher story - high pressure hoses blasted, guns pointed, windows smashed, activists tasered, bruised, shackled and handcuffed, and held in jail without due process. In response, Anonymous threatened to shut down Israeli government web sites for "justifying war, murder, illegal interception, and pirate-like activities under an illegal cover of defense." A day later, several sites mysteriously went down.
"We do not tolerate this kind of repeated offensive behavior against unarmed civilians. We along with 127 countries recognize Palestine as a state for people of Palestine and such acts by you and your military are acts of war against another sovereign nation."
Greetings government of Israel,
As the world has witnessed today your Navy soldiers boarded the vessels which were en-route to the Gaza Strip, attempting to break the illegal maritime security blockade placed by you to hurt the people of Gaza in the name of counter terrorism.
Two Irish-Canadian flotilla ships - Canadian Tahrir (Liberation), and the Irish Saoirse (Freedom) - with 27 passengers from nine countries on board were approaching Gaza in a peaceful and humanitarian mission. They were not inside Israeli territories, and are not carrying any weapons. These boats were captured by your navy exactly at 15:59 Gaza Time; the vessels were about 35 NM outside Gaza, which is INTERNATIONAL WATERS at the time of capture. This is a clear sign of piracy on the high seas. Furthermore, UN resolution 3005 states, that all resources (so also the sea) and natural wealth falls under the control of residents of Gaza.
Your actions are illegal, against democracy, human rights, international, and maritime laws. Justifying war, murder, illegal interception, and pirate-like activities under an illegal cover of defense will not go unnoticed by us or the people of the world.
We do not tolerate this kind of repeated offensive behavior against unarmed civilians. We along with 127 countries recognize Palestine as a state for people of Palestine and such acts by you and your military are acts of war against another sovereign nation.
If you continue blocking humanitarian vessels to Gaza or repeat the dreadful actions of May 31st, 2010 against any Gaza Freedom Flotillas then you will leave us no choice but to strike back. Again and again, until you stop.
We are Anonymous,
We are legion,
We do not forget,
We do not forgive,
