There was a brazen and unprovoked attack by Israel on an unarmed ship carrying only civilians. The incident happened in international waters where the flotilla had the right of free passage, as per international law. Therefore, the attack was also illegal and morally unjustified. This is an example of state terrorism. Israel had a history of such state terrorism. Given the history of such brutality by Israelis, this was to be expected. Nevertheless, the state terrorism of Israel must be condemned by all peace-loving people of the world. Will the Israelis attack the second ship bound for the Gaza strip? I think not. The world has reacted to this outrageous use of brazen force on innocent civilians.
