Illegal, Inhumane, Immoral

Israeli forces approach one of six ships bound for Gaza in the Mediterranean Sea on May 31, 2010These people died last night, and dozens were wounded. And this whole mission set out because governments did not do their job. It's the governments' responsibility of the world and the UN to end this siege, which is illegal, which is inhumane, which is immoral. And if the governments don't do their work, people have to get up. I didn't want to get on a boat and go through the Israeli Navy and get arrested. These people didn't want to die.

-- Israeli peace activist Jeff Halper, denouncing the Israeli attack on a ship carrying aid to Gaza, 1 June 2010
