Prime Minister Netanyahu has penned a letter to be delivered to the Flotilla to Gaza activists, presumably to be handed to them as they are being towed to port.

Israel has made it clear that the Flotilla will not be allowed to reach Gaza directly by sea, but can land in Israel, and then send all their humanitarian aid through one of the established crossings into Gaza.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu writes:

Welcome to Israel!

It seems you got lost. Perhaps you meant to sail to a place not far from here – Syria. There the Assad regime slaughters his people every day with the support of the murderous Iranian regime.

Despite that, here in Israel we are dealing with a situation where terror organizations, such as Hamas, are attempting to harm innocent civilians. Against attempts like these we are defending the citizens of Israel in accordance with international law.

Despite that, Israel assists with the transport of humanitarian supplies to Gaza – 800 truckloads a day, more than 1.6 million tons of supplies this past year. The equivalent of 1 ton per resident of Gaza.

By the way, the volume of equipment that has been sent from Israel to Gaza is more than 500,000 times larger than the your boats that you are arriving on.

Israel assists in hundreds of humanitarian projects via international organization including the establishment of medical clinics and hospitals.

But we are not willing to allow in weapons to the terrorist organizations in Gaza, as they have tried to do in the past, by sea.

Just a year ago, we stopped an attempt to bring in hundreds of weapons by sea, that were meant to harm innocent civilians.

There’s no closure on Gaza, and you are welcome to to transport, via Israel, any humanitarian supplies.

The sea blockade is in accordance with international law, and has received backing from the UN Secretary General.

If human rights were truly important to you, you wouldn’t be sailing in solidarity with a terror regime that executes, without trial, residents of Gaza, and uses the children of Gaza as human shields.

If you were to come to Israel you would be able to be impressed by the only democracy in the Middle East that is concerned with equality for all its citizens, and freedom of religion for all faiths. A state that operates in accordance with international law in order to provide its residents a secure life and its children to grow up in peace and serenity.

  1. Words mean squat.
    Israel looks more pathetic by the day, with one fiasco after the other.

    It is time for Netanyahu to develop a spine.
    The time has come to sink all ships, take those on board into custody and straight to Tel Aviv for the first flight out of the country to wherever they came from. Any Israeli found on board, citizen or MK, should be incarcerated for treason. This would send the message that this behaviour will not now or ever be tolerated.

    The current Israeli policy of always taking the softly, softly approach, forever politically correct, forever diplomatic, forever apologetic, forever willing to "look into this or that" when wild accusations are made against the IDF is a disgrace. It is clear that the current passive, forever reactive, never proactive stance by Israel has proven to be a disaster and the country needs a 180 degree turn around on everything.

    Once simply cannot talk about Israeli leadership because currently there is none.

  2. More than 18,000 Palestinians who live in Yarmouk, Syria are dying from starvation, lack of water and medicine, etc. Nobody in the world cares. The only Palestinians the world cares about are the civilians who got hurt when Hamas fired rockets at Israel. Do you see demonstrations on college campuses or flotillas of humanitarian supplies being sent to Yarmouk?

  3. Like I’ve said before.
    IDF….arrest all on board and after the ship is empty of the human garbage and illegal weapons, sink the ship!
    Everyone on board should be safely deposited in the care of the UN facility in the middle of Gaza and if a single rocket from that area is fired in Israel’s direction, drop a bunker buster and send them all to their Allah!

  4. European Union is a democracy, so that thousands of its citizens can fight under the flag of ISIS.
    Of Course, those less brave are content with ‘free’ and ‘exciting’ trip to Gaza…

    And meanwhile it can be seen that no Palestinian are in a hurry to join tens of thousands of immigrants to Europe.
    And do you know why?
    Because they have economic and personal security in Israel.

  5. Gil, Please stop using Crack Cocaine, you will end up moving to Syria and it will not end well for you. You should preach to Syria, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Libya, Sudan why they should be 1/10th as good as Israel, and the world would be a much better place. Channel your useless mission elsewhere. Ya Gachba

  6. Regarding the 'democracy' in the EU you're correct. Unfortunately we tried a lot of other political systems over the centuries, non of them actually worked. Finally we ended up with this still-born catastrophy called "European Democracy"… controlled by leftist do-gooders and pride parade activists. We ought to be ashamed.

  7. BEFORE DEPORTATION, EACH ONE OF THEM MUST PAY FOR THE COST OF THE ARREST BEFORE DEPARTURE.

    TUNISIAN PRESIDENT SHOULD BE IN JAIL FOR ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES SINCE AS A FORMER LEADER, HE SHOULD BE MAD AN EXAMPLE OF.

    REPEAT, CHARGE THE ARABS AND THEIR COHORTS FOR EVERY COST THAT ISRAEL MUST INCUR TO DEFEND HERSELF! AT LEAST WE CAN BENEFIT FROM ARAB OIL MONEY UNTIL QATAR REALIZES HOW EXPENSIVE THESE LEACHES ARE!

  8. Typical. When you cannot dispute the FACTS you resort to personal abuse and generalities. I can't wait for the day when you and your like will face the G-d of Israel. It is coming and there won't be any virgins for you!
