Last night, the Israeli Army attacked a convoy of ships destined to deliver humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza. The six boats included over 600 peace activists from over 50 nations and 10,000 tons of humanitarian aid. In the aftermath of the attack, estimates of ten to twenty internationalists were murdered and at least 50 were wounded. Israel’s attack on the Freedom Flotilla in international water amounts to an act of war and should be condemned by all of mankind. The humanitarian workers and peace activists were merely attempting to break Israel’s illegal blockade on the Gaza Strip and delivering thousands of much-needed assistance.
While Israel maintains that it has disengaged from the Gaza Strip in 2005, its attack on defenseless civilians in international water attests to Israel’s continued occupation of Gaza. Further, Israel has exposed its commitment, or lack thereof, of peace and a viable solution for the Palestinian people. Too long have we placed faith in this allusive peace process which promises justice for the Palestinians.
It is time that our elected officials condemn this Gaza flotilla massacre, but withhold all military financing of Israel until Israel actually shows a commitment to non-violence and peace.

SubhanAllah, this definitely shows how Israel operates one a regular basis and now i would really really like to see what the supporters of this states say or react ( my country the US).
You definitely can’t keep silent about this especially since other people died too aka “non-muslims” who come from rich nations. lets see the reaction to this.
May Allah taa’la strengthen our Iman and Ummah, Ameen
SubhanAllah – yet another feather to the cap of the terrorist-state a.k.a. Israel. I am yet to to see this dastardly act being dubbed as a terrorist act from any mainstream media – goes to show the double standards that are prevalent in the media. May Allah subhanahu wa taala give us the courage, patience and wisdom to follow the path of truth and justice, and grant us victory. Amen.
What a shameful crime, Israel is a terrorist state.
Please brothers, could you make an open petition for muslims all over the world?
It is time for main stream media to hold the Isreali government accountable to its mounting list of crimes against a civilian population.

Its high time that we muslims over the whole get together and give Israel and all its allies a lesson.
[…] Many of the video recordings by the passengers were confiscated. Suhaibwebb.com has published a list of action items, which everyone should pledge to take […]
Many news channels, at least here in Chicago, have covered the flotilla raid but almost none have addressed the fact that Israel conducted this raid in international waters. This is a clear example of piracy & sets a precedent for other countries in the Mediterranean Sea.
