    BRUSSELS, (PIC)-- The Freedom Flotilla II coalition has called on UN bodies to send officials to search the flotilla’s multinational ships, which are gearing to defy the Israeli siege and deliver humanitarian aid to the besieged Gaza Strip next week.

    The coalition challenged that the searches could be before the ship’s departure or while at sea or when they arrive to the Gaza Strip, saying the calls are aimed at assuring that the movement is a peaceful one.

    The UN has no jurisdiction here. They need to ask Israel to bring the ships into an Israeli port to search them, and if all the goods are allowed, to deliver them to Gaza.

    Why take it to the assholes who have the blockade? Israel lies about possible weapons on the ships but does not want independent inspections.

    The last flotilla made the same offer to have the UN or the Red Cross inspect the ships. Israel rejected the offer and sent in the goontards to kill people.

    Again, neither the UN nor the Red Cross has any jurisdiction here. Regardless of whether the people on the ships ask Israel to inspect the cargo, that is what is going to happen, so the only reason not to ask, is if they are hoping for a confrontation with the Israeli military.

    Israel has the right of self defense. The purpose of the blockade is to prevent Hamas and other terrorist groups from acquiring more weapons or other goods that can be used to attack Israel. If this were really about bringing humanitarian aid to the Gazans, then the ships have the choice of either sailing into an Israeli port and having their goods inspected by Israel or sailing into an Egyptian port and having their goods inspected by Egypt. If they insist on trying to sail directly to Gaza then their only possible motive is to try to provoke a response from Israel that they think can be used for propaganda purposes.

    Today, the United Nations views Palestinians as freedom fighters, struggling against the unlawful occupation of their land by Israel, and engaged in a long-established legitimate resistance, yet Israel regards them as terrorists.
