For the people of the world that have been following the Estelle with your heart in your hand. Let me tell you that The people of Gaza and the Solidarity Palestinian Movement of the world was one more time humiliated, cheated of our rights, publicly scorned by the Criminal, Pirate, Racist, Apartheid State of Israel. Israel allowed the Estelle to sailed closer to Gaza, while the world waiting with hopes that maybe this time Israel was going to have a fiber of compassion and allow this mission to reach Gaza.
Israel knows that there are no arms, no terrorists aboard, they know that this is a humanitarian mission. Why stage the event to make us hold false hopes?. Why wait so long to stop the Estelle? It is as if they were playing with the switch of hope, one minute we see the Estelle sailing, and another minute there is silence and expectations.
We were heart broken to see pictures of Palestinians in Gaza waiting in the beach for the Estelle to show up, that was one of the moments that I felt so powerless, almost like a joke played by Israel on the people of Gaza. I was crying with hope and happiness minutes before I read the tragic news, and minutes later, I was crying with anger, this anger that we feel when you see injustice being committed.
It is ironic that when you see that picture of Gaza beach with a very short horizon, it is double the pain. Even their horizon is limited. For days they waited for hopes to show up in the form of the Ship.
The Estelle was the name this time for hope to arrive to Gaza. You can not deny the truth of what happens in Gaza. The situation in Gaza is unbearable and Israel is busy with her PR story to the world of deception.
The latest of Israel’s reports on how maintain Palestinians barely alive just made public. But Gaza people do not need to read reports, they feel every day the taunt of the occupation, they suffer the bombs and the shortest of food.
I wonder this simple questions why the leaders go along with the lies?, why the leaders allow the carnage to go unpunished?, why the leaders do not stop the aid to Israel?, why the majority of the world do not see the truth, the simple truth as we see it? As I see, as is felt in Gaza, very raw, crude, almost grotest . Why is there people that still support Israel, knowing all the crimes that it commits?. Why the Arab Muslim leaders doing business with Israel?, Why is there no Justice in the world?, Why the world stand in silence? Why?
When Israel sent their bunch of lies that excuses her reason to keep the illegal tactics against Palestinians to the United Nations, we did not hear the response from the United Nations. Israel was fast in publishes the letter sent to the UN security council, but did not bother to post anything later. The letter wanted to make clear the UN security council that any actions that Israel will take regarding the Estelle, was excusable. Even if they killed some activist like they did on May 2010, where Israel murdered at close range 9 unarmed activist. That was the letter about to have in print her official defense in case there is another Mavi Marvara. OH! this devilish men are cleaver, Machiavelli mentality, chauvinistic mentality and heartless beings.
I keep looking for official statements on response of Ambassador Prosor’s letter, nothing to be found not in the United National Official Page and nothing on the Israeli Ministry of Defense, which take us to conclude that the actions perpetrated by Israel to the International Humanitarian Civil unarmed Mission of the Estelle was once more a public disregard of International Law and an abuse of a civilian human rights, and the rights of individuals to sail on the sea to a desire destinations.
At the moment of this notes 10:30 PT, the Estelle is being dragged to a Ashdod without the consent of the Captain, or the passengers.
I commend the people of the world to stand up for Gaza, Palestine,for the Estelle Crew, for for you, for our world.
These actions when leave unattended, and without complain, will be repeated over and over.
Until we really unite in one voice against the monsters of the Zionist Movement that seem to control the world. We can not advance in our endowment for peace.
And please do not go along to the Anti Semitic rhetoric that is old school of propaganda of the ADL, a Racist organization that is working to created Anti Semitic sentiment in the word.
There is nothing more criminal that what Israel is doing to the Palestinian people.
Do you think that it is fair that Israel having the latest weapon technology to attack a unarmed population, then go to the world and said that they are killing terrorist? Do you read the news, at least they tell you sometimes numbers that you can put into perspective and balance the truth. More than 1500 people died on the winder of 2008-2009 by Israel missiles, more than 600 were children and the rest woman, men and elderly. Israel killed most of the security forces in Gaza, they attack a police academy and killed all the youth that were students, not terrorists. They could have been your sons, but the news reported that Israel killed jihadist, terrorists. What a blatant lie.
There is nothing more criminal that what the Zionist Lobby around the world are doing to undermine our own governments.
And there is nothing more Anti Semitic that what Israel is doing to the Nation of Palestine. The Genocide that the indigenous of Palestine is being victim, that is Anti Semitic. The rest is Israel Propaganda.
The well propagated idea by Israel that there is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza is the worse cruel lie they spread in the news, the truth is simple and you just need to see the pictures continuously uploaded by Palestinians and from internationals that have moved to Palestine to record for history the horror that Israel is creating in Palestine, specially in Gaza which have been victim of a Naval and land blockade since 1967 really not 2007 as the world thinks.
None of the Big News were following the Estelle, but once Israel attacked the Estelle then all the Paid News were ready to make their headlines.
This is ABC except from their news today regarding the Estelle, ABC according to the world is one of the respected leading News outlet, but for us that know the truth, ABC is just another propaganda outlet.
“Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement praising the military for enforcing the blockade, said there “is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza” and accused the activists of trying to “to provoke and slander Israel’s name.”, if ABC really care for the truth should have journalist in Gaza, reporting the truth to the world and not the parroted lies that Israel dictates.
This photo released by the Israel Defense Forces, shows the Swedish-owned, Finnish-flagged boat, Estelle as it near the waters off the Gaza Strip Saturday Oct 20, 2012. Israeli naval vessels thwarted the advance of a pro-Palestinian boat attempting to reach Gaza on Saturday in defiance of Israel’s blockade of the territory, the military said. (AP Photo/IDF)
“We have this blockade because there are constant smuggling attempts of weapons, munitions that eventually reach the hands of terror organizations inside Gaza,” she said. How can a “respected News Outlets” will be distributing lies and propaganda to deviate the attention of the world of a terribly humanitarian horror developing in Gaza?

At any given day I invite to visit the page Marine Traffic a public where you can check the Port activity, Ashdod Port, and Haifa Port two of the busy ports of Israel. While Israel have an illegal blockaded of Gaza, not allowing it to develop their Naval infrastructure and their fishing industry at all, Israel enjoy of free trade from Oil, Arms, war technology, agricultural products, industrial products, just name it Israel is a striving industry in all the aspect of the economy, and Palestine is left to the charity of the world. Where is the fairness on this? Why the UN allow this atrocity to occur? Please wonder, please raise your voice.
This is the Croatia Cargo Vessel, on of hundreds that come and go from Israel ports. Who is really inspecting those ships, whey could be trading illegal nuclear weapons for what we know.
