Muslim Community Lobby Ireland
It is not a surprise to hear the sad news about the Israeli military attack on the Freedom Flotilla project in aid of Gaza, in the international water of the Mediterranean Sea, in its journey to Gaza Strip carrying some humanitarian aids to the people under siege.
This attack that has killed and injured more than 70 people can only be described as an act of terrorism, piracy and intended cold blood murder.
The ships of the Freedom Flotilla carry people from different regions of the world including Irish activists.
This Israeli piracy could not have manifested openly without the hypocrisy and double standard and preferential treatment of the implanted state of Israel in the land Palestine.
We had enough hypocrisy and now it is time for Ireland to lead a just and unbiased role to deal with this obnoxious and unprecedented Israeli atrocious madness.
We request the Minister of foreign affairs to call the Israeli Ambassador to express anger and condemnation of the Israeli outrageous behavior and to take effective measures to put an end to this state organized terrorism.

DE ROSSA DEMANDS EU INVESTIGATION INTO KILLINGS BY ISRAELI DEFENCE FORCES
President of the European Parliament's Delegation for relations with Palestine, Proinsias De Rossa MEP, has today condemned 'the killing and wounding of those seeking bring humanitarian aid to the Palestinians in the Gaza strip. Mr de Rossa said: “I call on Micheál Martin, Minister for Foreign Affairs to propose an immediate EU inquiry into the matter. All development of relations and transfers of EU funds to Israel must be put on hold pending the outcome. “This appalling attack by heavily armed soldiers on a humanitarian mission is a direct result of the international impunity enjoyed by Israel for earlier crimes. “The murderous attack on Gaza last year resulting in the death of 1400 people, mostly civilians and including over 300 children has not led to any sanctions on Israel. “Even the use of stolen European identities in the unlawful killing in Dubai has been virtually ignored by Europe. “Just last week EU member states welcomed Israel into the OECD which Israel has used to bolster its democratic credentials. “It is time to shout stop in the name of humanity.” ENDS
At least 10 activists have reportedly been killed after Israeli forces opened fire on a Gaza aid flotilla.
Over 60 pro-Palestinian activists have also been wounded after the storming by Israeli armed forces of at least one of the six ships loaded with humanitarian aid headed for Gaza, say reports.At least two Malaysian activists are believed to be on the aid flotilla, though this has yet to be confirmed.
