When Gaza aid flotilla sets to sail for Gaza, many of us anticipate anxiously to know whether the international humanitarian activists can break the Israeli blockade, and more importantly whether they can survive the precarious journey to the world's largest open air prison, Gaza.
As expected, Israel will not just not allow aid ships to approach Gaza, instead they will gun down anyone whom they consider 'potential threat' even though they are unarmed and far from lethal. Eventually, on 31 May 2010, 10.30 AM (Malaysian time), the journey turned into another bloody episode. Nine activists were shot dead and more than 60 wounded after a deadly raid by Israeli soldiers. It really burns me up, so don’t ask me why I hate Israel. They are simply inhuman.
Here, I would like to offer my condolences over the death of nine Gaza aid flotilla activists. According to Al-Jazeera, eight Turkish and one American were among the dead.
