Israel’s murderous attack on the Free Gaza flotilla in international waters amounts to nothing less than state piracy.
The example of peaceful civilians being attacked at sea by troops of a colonial power ought not to be lost on Israelis, who commemorate next month the 63rd anniversary of the boarding of the Exodus by British forces.
The Exodus was carrying Holocaust survivors from Europe to Palestine, three of whom were killed during the attack, and they were all returned to Germany.
Just as the Exodus attained mythical symbolism for Israelis, the flotilla and those slaughtered by Israeli commandos will do likewise for the Palestinian cause.
The Israeli propaganda services have been given ample opportunity by the BBC to give their version of events, but they stand condemned by the enormity of their own lies.
