Apparently the latest Arabs that call themselves Palestinians latest propaganda effort with Gaza Flotilla III did not come with weapons or Islamic terrorists ready to provoke an incident with Israel’s Navy. Of the four ships taking off from Sweden to land in Gaza without Israeli approval, three turned back and one – Swedish registered Marianne of Gothenburg – carrying some notable protesters continued when ordered to turn around and go back to last port of origination. The Israeli Navy boarded the ship without incident and headed to the Israeli port of Ashdod:

Israeli Navy fighters boarded the Swedish boat Marianne of Gothenburg early Monday, taking over the vessel carrying 18 political activists and journalists bound for the Gaza Strip. The takeover was accomplished without incident and the Navy then escorted the vessel to Israel’s southern port of Ashdod, where the passengers will be questioned and then deported.

… The declared aim of the organizers – Israeli, Arab and European activists – was to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza, which Israel says is essential in order to prevent Palestinian terror group from arming.

“This flotilla is nothing but a demonstration of hypocrisy and lies that is only assisting the Hamas terrorist organisation and ignores all of the horrors in our region,” Netanyahu said.

“Preventing entry by sea was done in accordance with international law and even received backing from a committee of the UN Secretary General,” he said.

Israeli troops boarding the vessel handed the activists a letter, accusing them of hypocrisy in singling out Israel for alleged human rights violations at a time when brutal wars raging across the Middle East claim heavy tolls.

“It appears you have strayed READ ENTIRETY FOR MORE DETAILS (Israeli Navy seizes Gaza flotilla boat without incident; By Taboola; i24 News English; 6/29/15 01:27pm)

Ari Bussel forwarded a copy of the Israel Government Press Office (GPO) official statement of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a quite humorous letter delivered to the protesters on the vessel Marianne. Undoubtedly the statement and the letter made public have the purpose to counter pro-Palestinian propaganda that typically lies or twists facts in an effort to paint Israel as the villain.

PM Netanyahu’s Statement Following Last Night’s Navy Action

(Communicated by the Prime Minister’s Media Adviser)

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this morning (Monday, 29 June 2015), issued the following statement:

“I would like to commend the sailors and commanders of the Israel Navy for their determined and efficient action in detaining the passengers on the ship that tried to reach the Gaza coast in contravention of the law. This flotilla is nothing but a demonstration of hypocrisy and lies that is only assisting the Hamas terrorist organization and ignores all of the horrors in our region. Preventing entry by sea was done in accordance with international law and even received backing from a committee of the UN Secretary General.

Israel is the only democracy that defends itself in accordance with international law. We are not prepared to accept the entry of war materiel to the terrorist organizations in Gaza as has been done by sea in the past. Just last year we foiled an attempt to smuggle by sea hundreds of weapons that were destined for use in attacks against Israel’s citizens.

There is no siege on Gaza. Israel assists in transferring goods and humanitarian equipment to Gaza – approximately 800 trucks a day that have recently brought into Gaza more than 1.6 million tons of goods. Moreover, Israel assists in hundreds of humanitarian projects, through international organizations, including the building of clinics and hospitals.

Israel is a state that seeks peace and acts in accordance with international law so that the residents of Gaza might have safe lives and their children may grow up in peace and quiet.”

Following is a copy of the letter that was issued last night:

“Welcome to Israel,

You seem to have gotten lost. Perhaps you meant to sail to a place not far from here – Syria, where Assad’s army is slaughtering its people every day, and is supported by the murderous Iranian regime.

Here in Israel we face a reality in which terrorist organizations like Hamas try to kill innocent civilians. We defend our citizens against these attempts in accordance with international law.

Despite this, Israel transports goods and humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip – up to 800 trucks a day. In the past year we enabled the entry of over 1.6 million tons of products, an average of one ton per person in the Gaza Strip. By the way, these supplies are equivalent to 500,000 boats like the one you came in on today.

Israel provides assistance to hundreds of humanitarian projects through international organizations, including the building of clinics and hospitals.

However, we will not allow the terrorist organizations to transfer weapons into the Gaza Strip by sea. Only one year ago, we thwarted an attempt to smuggle hundreds of weapons into the Gaza Strip by ship. These weapons were meant to target innocent Israeli civilians.

There is no siege on the Gaza Strip, and you are welcome to transfer any humanitarian supplies for the Gaza Strip through Israel.

Barring the entrance of boats and ships into the Gaza Strip is in accordance with international law, and was even backed by a committee commissioned by the United Nations Secretary General.

If you were truly concerned about human rights, you would not be sailing in support of a terrorist regime which summarily executes citizens in the Gaza Strip, and uses children as human shields.

If you were to travel around in Israel, you would see for yourself that the only stable democracy in the Middle East guarantees equality for all its citizens and freedom of worship for members of all religions; it is a country that upholds international law so that its people can live in safety and its children grow up in peace and quiet.”
