Massive Protests Planned Over Israel's Pirate Massacre in International Waters

Israeli criminal navy attacks humanitarian ships after saying they would not.
Images from al Jazeera show Israeli gunboats approaching the flotilla of relief ships with unarmed civilians flying the white flag; even this historic act proclaiming that a party is not a threat, failed to stop Israel's pre determined plan to murder several with military forces.

(JERUSALEM) - Reports are circulating of 10-16 humanitarian activists killed and 50-60 injured. The Israeli army had tried to make the media maneuver of saying they would arrest and take the boats when they enter Gaza coastal waters and tow the boats to port in Asdod (renamed Ashdod after the occupation of 1948) and had prepared tens to house the arrestees at that southern port.

Instead, the Israeli army decided to execute a surprise maneuver and attack the boats at night and in the north near Cyprus in International waters and then board the boats and take them to the northern port of Haifa.

In doing so they committed a massacre of unarmed civilians to add to the hundreds of massacres committed before but this time they have really gone way too far and alienated the international community with this horrendous crime.

Time to demonstrate everywhere and write to all you know and all you do not know (media, politicians etc).

Organize your own event (in front of Israeli missions abroad, in front of government buildings, in public squares etc) or join any of the planned emergency demonstrations. In Bethlehem we gather at the Nativity Square and march to the apartheid wall at 2:00 p.m.

(Editor's note: If you know the locations of any anti-Israel protests set for Monday, please list them in our comment section and we will publish them there to keep the information consolidated.)

Wyden and Merkley must go! Give them their "walking papers" along with other AIPAC supporters and AIPAC Zionists. Send them to Israel to help clean up the Zionist Leadership, especially Netanyahoo!

How about protests at Wyden and Merkley's offices? They both attended the reigonal AIPAC meeting, swore their undying devotion to Israel and Wyden is one of the TOP TEN career recipients of AIPAC money...Traitors in our midst, working tirelessly for Israel while collecting checks from Oregon taxpayers. House cleaning starts at home...Oregonians cannot ignore these traitors/enablers if we care about the situation in the Middle East. Wyden especially needs to be thrown out of office..he is a proud and blatantly so, Israel-FIRSTer..
