Haaretz claims that Israel is threatening to use force against a peaceful boat of Jewish people including a holocaust camp survivor who are bringing aid to Gaza.
However the navy says they dont expect resistance.
However the people on the boat have already publicly announced they will not resist. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010...srael-blockade
http://www.haaretz.com/print-edition...-gaza-1.315836The nine passengers also include Israeli Yonatan Shapira, a pilot who signed a letter refusing to do military service in the territories, and his brother Itamar; Rami Elhanan, whose daughter Smadar was killed in a terrorist attack in 1997; and Reuven Moskovitz, a Holocaust survivor who helped found the Jewish-Arab community of Neveh Shalom.
This is an important message to sectarians that Jews do not ALL support Israeli government policy.
"The Jewish Boat to Gaza is a symbolic act of protest against the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories and the siege of Gaza, and a message of solidarity to Palestinians and Israelis who seek peace and justice," said one of the organizers, Richard Kuper of Jews for Justice for Palestinians, in a press statement issued from London. "Israeli government policies are not supported by all Jews."
