Jewish responses to the Israeli massacre of international humanitarian aid workers

Two responses from Jewish sources who share everyone else’s horror at Israeli action on preventing aid reaching Gaza, shooting and wounding international aid workers indiscriminately.
1.J Street
John —
Like many of you, I am still absorbing the terrible news from the waters off of Israel and Gaza this morning.
Going into this weekend, we knew there were few good outcomes likely from the latest effort to break the blockade of the Gaza Strip in the face of Israel’s determination to prevent it.
But none of us expected the tragedy we woke up to this morning, a day on which we honor the memory of U.S. soldiers who served and died in prior wars.
As one of our supporters wrote to me this morning, “how many more people need to die, how many more children deprived of a father or mother, before this conflict is settled and people can live in peace and security, while devoting their energy to building better lives?”
With details still emerging and propaganda spinning furiously on all sides – one simple truth stands clear to us: today’s events are the natural outgrowth of the larger, ongoing failure to resolve this conflict peacefully through a two-state solution.
It is up to our leaders to turn this crisis into a real push to end the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians now – otherwise events will spin even further out of control. We will have more to say on how in the days ahead.
In the meantime, feel free to share your thoughts with us by responding directly to this message and we’ll put together a webpage for feedback and reactions from the J Street community later on in the week.
Our statement reacting to the day’s events follows:
J Street is deeply shocked and saddened by reports that at least 10 civilians have been killed and dozens more wounded (including Israeli soldiers) this morning as Israel intercepted a naval convoy bringing humanitarian supplies and construction materials to the Gaza Strip.
We express our condolences to the families of those killed and we wish the injured a full and speedy recovery. We hope that leaders on all sides will take immediate steps to ensure that this incident does not escalate into a broader round of violence – in Israel, in Gaza, or in the region.
There will undoubtedly be calls in the coming days for a UN investigation into today’s events. A credible, independent commission appointed by the Israeli government should provide the world with a full and complete report into the causes and circumstances surrounding the day’s events and establish responsibility for the violence and bloodshed.
This shocking outcome of an effort to bring humanitarian relief to the people of Gaza is in part a consequence of the ongoing, counterproductive Israeli blockade of Gaza. J Street has been and continues to be opposed to the blockade – believing that there are better ways to ensure Israel’s security and to prevent weapons smuggling than a complete closure of the Gaza Strip.
We do not know yet what the impact of today’s incident will be on the just-restarted peace process, on Israel’s relations with the international community, or on the health of Arab-Jewish relations within Israel itself.
We do know, however, that today is one more nail in the coffin for hopes of ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict peacefully and diplomatically and for preserving Israel’s Jewish and democratic character. We urge President Obama and other international and regional leaders to take today’s terrible news as an opportunity to engage even more forcefully in immediate efforts to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
We’ll be in touch,
– Jeremy

Jewish Voice for Peace
condemns Israel’s attack and killing of members of the Freedom Flotilla aiming to bring much needed aid to the besieged Gaza Strip.
Before the flotilla was attacked, Yigal Palmor, an Israeli foreign ministry spokesman, said,
“If we let them throw egg at us, we appear stupid with egg on our face. If we try to prevent them by force, we appear as brutes.”
Israel has more than egg on its face. Israel has blood on its hands. At least 10 passengers have been killed by Israel and about 30 wounded in international waters. This is just another deadly escalation of Israel’s harsh repression of nonviolent protests against the occupation, paid with American tax-dollars.
The White House has stated that it “deeply regrets the loss of life and injuries sustained, and is currently working to understand the circumstances surrounding this tragedy.”
This is not enough.
President Obama should call for an immediate lifting of the siege of Gaza. He should support an international and impartial investigation into the tragic killing of civilians in a humanitarian mission. And he should suspend military aid to Israel until he can assure the American public that our aid is not used to commit similar abuses.

Dear John,
When I got the news about Israel’s armed attack on the Gaza Flotilla at 2:30 am on the morning of May 31, I felt sick. I immediately called a dear friend in Jerusalem, one of the most committed activists I know. Across the ocean, I could hear in her voice that she was in tears. “The worst part about it, ” she said, “is that nothing will change.”
“No,” I replied. “I can’t believe that can be true. Things have to change.”
“Well,” she said, “then it is up to you, the internationals.”
She’s right. It is up to us, the internationals both here in the United States and abroad.
That is why I want you to send a message to US President Obama if you live outside of the United States, and to Obama and the US Congress if you are a U.S. resident, demanding the immediate release of the detained human rights activists, an end to the siege on Gaza, an impartial investigation of the attack on the flotilla, and a suspension of US aid until Israel abides by international law.
We still don’t know a lot about what happened to the flotilla of boats carrying some 700 human rights activists from around the world and over 10 tons of humanitarian aid to Gaza– Israel has kept the activists under a near total media blackout while sharing only its implausible narrative of events. What we do know is that Israeli commandos boarded a ship in international waters and killed at least ten activists, injuring dozens of others.
Israel insists that highly trained commandos were forced to lethally fire on activists, creating a new definition of self-defense. In the first alternative accounts to appear, an Israeli Knesset member and an Al Jazeera cameraman who were on board the ship at the time each described something different, a scene of chaos with civilians waving white flags and commandos using stun guns, rubber bullets and tear gas. Regardless of what actually happened when armed soldiers landed, Israel’s wanton killing of civilians is unacceptable.
We still don’t know the names of those who were killed or injured, or where they are from. And we don’t know the whereabouts or well-being of more than 400 activists still being held by Israel.
These deaths, and the attacks on the boats, have hit all of us around the world particularly hard. There were people from 40 different countries on board the ships, including Israelis and Palestinians. Israel sent armed commandos onto a civilian ship in international waters, a brazenly illegal act to enforce Israel’s nearly 3-year illegal siege of Gaza – a siege that has left 1.5 million men, women and children living like prisoners on substandard diets, deprived of the simplest things like potato chips, musical instruments, and toys. The flotilla wasn’t just about this one delivery of aid. It was about the right of Palestinians to have sea, land and air routes to the rest of the world and for the need to end the blockade.
I know that there comes a point in one’s life when you simply have to take a stand. You cannot sit by silently and watch ongoing and wholly unjustified destruction of life, tacitly supported by governments around the world, and simply do nothing.
The flotilla was filled with people just like you and me who finally decided it was time to risk life and limb to take a stand, to break through those prison walls, and we thank them for it.
Now, as citizens of the world, we owe it to the people of Palestine, and the people of Israel who want to live in peace, and the brave people on that flotilla, to build the movement to make Israel accountable to international law and standards of simple human decency – especially because our governments have failed us.
The response of the U.S. government thus far has been wholly inadequate, with a mild statement “regretting the loss of life,” without assigning any blame for the fiasco, let alone applying any sanctions for Israel’s acts. Please, join me in telling President Obama and Congress enough is enough
. US taxpayer dollars fund Israel’s occupation, and together with wall to wall uncritical diplomatic support have sent the message that any Israeli action, no matter how foolhardy, will be backed by the full might of the United States.
It’s time for that to stop.
We must also continue to build the already massive global people’s movement for justice, which has undeniably found its greatest impact in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. This is about all of the ways, big and small, people can bypass their often ineffective governments to use economic pressure to make the Israeli government accountable to international law. After launching our energetic support for campus efforts to divest from the occupation, Jewish Voice for Peace will let you know soon about our own divestment campaign to help bring pressure on Israel to reach a just solution.
It is time for the United States, as Israel’s closest ally and most powerful nation in the world, to stop unconditional support for the Israeli government.Doing so will protect Israelis and Palestinians, American citizens, and internationals alike.
Click here to demand that President Obama and Congress call for an immediate lifting of the siege of Gaza,

an international and impartial investigation into the tragic killing of civilians in a humanitarian mission, and the suspension of military aid to Israel until he can assure the American public that our aid is not used to commit similar abuses.

The media catch up on Gaza with front page headlines

The attack on a civilian flotilla with reports of 10 or more dead has meant that news is now front page. Daily atrocities in Palestinian territories are routinely ignored and the Israeli government gets away with flouting international law. The attack on one of 7 international ships carrying emergency aid to Gaza took place in international waters so amounts to an act of piracy. The press is waking up, but will governments?
All Jazeera report.
Palestinian News Network (PNN) report.

Jerusalem Post report
Haaretz report
The response of the Israeli government is that the flotilla included those with “terrorist” connections and that the boarding party of the IDF was met with both firearms and other assorted weaponry. This is most vividly laid out in the report from Haaretz which also publishes a range of other articles, one saying that Israel had lost the media battle before the flotilla had even set out. Al Jazeera reports that a number of European countries, including Greece and Spain, have called in their Israeli ambassadors.
The following is a response from the Palestinian territories:
Call for demonstrations in all countries in the world against Israeli embassies the People’s Committees in Palestine call you to demonstrations of anger against Israeli terrorism and criminality. Let the third International intifada uprising Against terrorism and the occupation..
Israeli criminal navy attacks humanitarian ships in International waters.
Reports 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

Greece gives us hope

The following was received from the Socialist Labour Party. In addition An article from John Pilger in New Statesman argues why the peoples’ reaction to the crisis of Capitalism is significant for all of us.
Political & Economic Crisis Deepens
The European Union summit that took place over the weekend of 7th to 9th May, originally met to formally agree the 110bn euro bailout of the Greek economy, however such is the speed of the developing crisis that this measure was eclipsed by the need for an agreement to shore up the euro currency itself!
A 750bn euro reserve fund and the establishment of an ‘intervention unit’ were hastily agreed in a desperate effort to strengthen the currency in the face of international speculation that threatened its complete collapse. That this measure was taken after discussions with United States President Obama signifies the worldwide nature of the deepening economic crisis. Furthermore it was deemed that it was essential this bailout be in place by the time the stock markets opened the following Monday.
Not only is the euro in such danger, but the UK is now consistently being linked alongside Greece, Spain, Portugal and Ireland, as countries that the markets and financial speculators feel will be unable to meet their growing debts, giving rise to fears within the British establishment of not if there will be a run on sterling, but when.
It is against this background that a Tory and Liberal Democratic coalition government comes to power in the UK. Bearing in mind that a third of eligible voters did not vote at all and from the remainder only 36% voted for the Tories and 23% for the Lib Dems, this is not a coalition with any mandate to govern. That the Liberal Democrats, the mini-Tories, ditched most of their manifesto pledges at the first sniff of a chance of power, aptly demonstrates their lack of credibility. Indeed, Tory leader, and now Prime Minister, David Cameron, announced the formation of the coalition to the media even before Nick Clegg had consulted his parliamentary colleagues, so convinced was he of their unprincipled and opportunist nature.
However, any budget that this coalition initially unveils is most likely to be blown apart by the forthcoming economic storms as the political and economic crisis develops and intensifies on a world scale.
The bank bailout, incorporating the largest transfer of money in recorded history and effectively burdening States with the debts accumulated by the banks and financial institutions, has left insurmountable public debt, with no country being exempt from its effect.
In Greece the dawning realisation of just what is in store for the Greek working class prompted Communist Party MP Haralambos Haralambous to state, “When will building workers retire, at age 80? How do you expect him to carry a bag of cement on his back until that age?”
Commenting on the Greek crisis the New York Times warned that workers in the United States will have to accept similar cuts in pensions and benefits as those being imposed on the working class of Greece.
On the 5th May French Prime Minister François Fillon warned the French working class that ‘painful measures were in store (in order) to avoid indebtedness like Greece.”
In Romania the latest IMF imposed austerity measures include a staggering 25% cut in salaries, a 15% cut in pensions and unemployment benefit, a 25% cut in child benefit, and a 15% cut in disabled benefit.
That the UK will somehow be immune from these developments is pure wishful thinking and for all the talk from ruling circles that ‘we are coming out of recession’ in reality they are preparing for the social unrest that will come once the full effects of the austerity measures being prepared for workers in the UK are realised.
As we have witnessed recently in the British Airways dispute, where workers are trying to defend their wages and working conditions, the hard fought for right to withdraw one’s labour, is subject to the whims of court rulings.
Of course court rulings will always be classed based and taken with due consideration of the objective conditions at the time, but ultimately it will be used as a weapon against the trade unions. Therefore the lesson to learn is that as the trade unions become tied down in legal straight jackets, and its leadership exposed as woefully inadequate to face the tasks in hand, the need to develop an independent working class party that gives voice to the millions who will be the victims of the austerity measures, and the millions who will be thrown into struggle, many for the very first time in their lives, becomes a matter of urgency.
The SLP is attempting to build such a party. Join us.

Sent home dead, not a word said

The privatisation of war. It has become big business, but is still a taboo. When a soldier is killed his/her flag/draped coffin is paraded through town and mentioned in dispatches. Not so the privateer.
In Iraq it is estimated there were 160,000 private contractors of which 50,000 were armed security personnel. Some stories of shoot outs, killings, maiming and abuse, have surfaced, notably Blackwater when 17 Iraqi civilians died. Most haven’t been reported and there is a leagcy of bitterness and resentment towards them.
The mercenaries who have been killed remain unaccounted for and will not appear on any war memorials. What happens to their next of kin,or for that matter those who survive but are left wounded. Presumably it is the responsibility of the employer to determine what benefits, if any they might get.

Who do you want to lead Labour, Milliband – or Milliband?

Get David Milliband and you get Blair Mark II – pro Zionist and self promoting. Is that why his brother is standing against him. Must be a good reason we don’t yet know about. John Cruddas has ruled himself out, saying it’s not something he aspires to. It’s a duty. Given some of those who have or are likely to put themselves forward, forgive me asking what special abilities they might have as opposed to what they think they have?
Talk about successful Labour areas where members run the local party, as opposed to party officials. Does it happen anywhere in Labour? Ian Reilly successfully ended local determination here in Birmingham seeing his duty to make sure there was not a vestige of left remaining. Now I expect the bugger’s crowing about the exceptional results Birmingham achieved on May 6th. Well everyone, or very nearly, voted either for Tories or Labour, to ensure the one they weren’t supporting didn’t see the light of day. I noticed how young people – even those below voting age – became involved, although there has been a lot of bemoaning that this group are not engaged. Bullshit or what? Certainly many are supporting PR voting to end the stranglehold of the established elite of the major parties, so they shouldn’t appear too smug with the results.
Since all parties, including Tory substitutes the Lib Dems, and New Labour are all Capitalist and allow themselves to give power to multinationals who demand all that we don’t want: G.M. crops, a nuclear future, pharmaceuticals which are harmful then who represents us? The Green Party doesn’t call for an end to it but acts as if the status quo will act environmentally. The Gulf of Mexico provides an answer to that one.

Being fed pig swill

Will the new Tory Lib Dem alliance address the issue of big business pushing genetically modified food down our throats. There is talk of “two tier” food production, the one organic and available to those who can pay the price, the other produced from the untried, and therefore potentially harmful, mass produced g.m.crops. These will produce huge profits to their producers – the human equivalent of feeding pigs.
The power of corporate lobbyists like Monsanto is well demonstrated in pending US legislation where huge sums of money are being fed into g.m. development with no mention of alternatives. The trend is apparent elesewhere, including Britain and India, where the effectiveness of the lobbyists has been shown, Elected members are very keen to assist in this lucrative activity.

The National Interest

Cameron, Brown, Clegg all singing from the same hymn sheet “what we propose is in the National Interest”. We don’t think so as they propose draconian cuts affecting working people disproportionately. They and their wealthy mates are not going to feel the effects of low wages, loss of essential services and so on.
As over one hundred billion Euros are being thrown at bailing out Greece the question arises how much will this cost the Greek people. Clearly they are not in the mood to accept this. The lenders must be rubbing their hands with glee at the profits arising from this unimaginable loan. The Greek government should own the banks not the banks own the Greek government in effect holding it and the people of Greece to ransom.
The following is a Socialist Labour Party response to the General Election outcome:

The death spiral

The count in Birmingham for the General Election was long and tedious last night at the National Indoor Arena. I was Socialist Labour Party candidate for Perry Barr but it seemed that voters were intent on focusing on the big two: Labour and Tory. This morning nothing is clear except that what lies ahead is a deepening crisis of capitalism. Who can manage the crisis better? If Greece is to go by neither will be able to save the rotten system as “a spiral of death” grips Europe.
The Washington Post looks at Spain in what the Daily Telegraph has described as a “domino effect”. “Cuts will be made” we have been told by all major contenders in their bid to save Capitalism. The details are all hidden but there have been many reports of dire effects on the NHS, on public services and jobs all of which fall hardest on the most vulnerable and poorest sections of society.
As the people of Greece are making clear they ain’t going to stand for it. In Britain the public protested on the streets about the poll tax and if the Tories take the reigns today they ware likely heading to civil strife. The Tory Toff leader has made sympathetic noises about poverty but he clearly isn’t a representative of working people and is entrenched in an elite world which trades on exploitation of labour globally. The problem is Blair and co felt hey could do the same better. Now Tony, also a public school lad whose father was a Conservativ supporter has lived up to the promise of being as good a Tory as any. New Labour is still fatally infected by his ghost as Hoon, Blewitt an Byers – not to mention the Lord Mandelson et al demonstrate daily. Britain is one of the dominoes although still not attached to th Euro groaning at the prospect of bailing out the Greeks. “Not a measure to be repeated” they say so will they let the next Euro state to become bankrupt to hang out to dry?

Greek workers say “no” to cuts

With all major contenders in the UK elections promising cuts – but not saying exactly what or how big – will taking to the streets be trend? The Socialist Labour Party thinks Greece is “a test case”.
Greece is becoming a test case for how successfully austerity measures can be loaded onto the backs of the working class.
The recent IMF and European Central Bank (ECB) loan to the Greek government totalling 110bn euros, up from an initial estimate of 37bn euros, is dependent on ensuring workers pay for an economic crisis not of their making.
Greek Finance Minister Yiorghos Papakonstantinou stated that instalments of the loan will be made every three months over a period of three years, dependent on the terms of the loan being met.
So what are the terms of this IMF/ECB loan?
A further three per cent wage cut for all workers in the electricity, water, telecommunication and gas industries, this follows last month’s cut of 7%.per cent.
A three year wage freeze for all other workers; a further rise in VAT of two per cent making it 23 per cent; a ten per cent tax on petrol; cuts in public spending, though these were not detailed; the privatisation of the Greek railways; some disability pensions to be scrapped; women to now work as long as men before retirement (the last round of attacks, barely weeks ago, had already raised the retirement age by two more years). Furthermore a Pensions Bill is expected to be introduced by the Greek government shortly which will end the state pension completely.
According to the public sector trades unions federation workers income will be reduced by 35%, the minimum wage and collective bargaining will end and unemployment will reach 20% by the end of this year. The Union claimed “Society is becoming a volcano”
Commenting on the IMF/ECB bailout the Guardian newspaper stated “It is also clear that the bailout orchestrated by the IMF, the European commission and the European Central Bank will merely be a short-term fix unless it can help get Greece moving again. If it can’t, it will be worse than useless”
After outlining the reasons why this bailout will fail the Guardian report ended with the warning “That is not a recovery plan. It is an economic death spiral.”
The situation in Greece is set to escalate to Portugal, Spain and Ireland, with the US and UK by no means exempt in the near future.
The Greek public sector trade unions have called a general strike for 4th and 5th of May.
