Amira Hass Reports on Israeli Navy Seizure of Only Gaza-Bound Ship to Sail in Aid Flotilla

Earlier this week, three Israeli missile ships and seven commando boats intercepted a French ship attempting to reach the Gaza Strip. The ship, Dignite-al Karama, was the sole representative of the original 10-strong international aid flotilla hoping to break the blockade on Gaza and express support for Palestinians living under occupation. At least 150 soldiers were sent to sea early Tuesday morning to prevent the 10 civilian activists, the three crew members and the three journalists on the flotilla from reaching Gaza’s port. Fifteen passengers were arrested, prevented from seeing their lawyers, and sent for deportation. Democracy Now! interviews Ha’aretz correspondent Amira Hass, one of the few journalists who was aboard the ship. Hass is also the one of the only Israeli journalists to have spent several years living in and reporting from Gaza and the West Bank.

    Well, crap. I’m disappointed, but not surprised.

    I guess we just keep doing this over and over, until something breaks.

    At the same time, I can’t help but try to imagine what will happen if Israel really does go crazy and attack Iran in September. If Israel is loony enough to do that, what would stop them from attacking Gaza, or Lebanon, or anyone?
