Israel has finally sent the navy to intercept the female boat activist that wanted to break theGaza blockade. Thirteen women, including the 1976 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Mairead Maguire, were traveling aboard the Zaytouna-Oliva sailboat in the Mediterranean towards Gaza. As a result, the thirteen activists have been arrested, and all the aid products that they were carrying with them has been put under custody. However, it is not the first time that the Israeli government has intercepted boats trying to break the blockade. In 2010, the “Gaza Freedom Flotilla” formed by several boats were intercepted by the Israeli navy that decided to kill 8 activists.
The Israeli Government’s blockade in Gaza is affecting millions of Palestinians that do not have access to medicine, food, drinkable water, electricity, or construction material. As a result, they are potentially being exposed to several diseases due to a lack of medicine and sanitary conditions.
According to several resolutions from the UN (united nations), the Gaza blockade is illegal,alleging that it affects the human rights of Palestinians. In recent years, the crimes committed by the Israeli Army have greatly increased. As a result, some governments have started to boycott all Israeli products.
The international community through the International Court of The Hague should stop this genocide, and prosecute the Prime Minister of Israel alleging that he has committed crimes against humanity. Therefore, all governments should work together in order to make it possible to impose sanctions against Israel. It is true that the Jewish community suffered a lot during the Second World War, when Hitler killed more than 6 million .However, it does not mean that they can do the same, and kill millions of Palestinians. It is terrifying to see people who were almost exterminated be willing to do the same to other people.
In conclusion, all governments should protect Palestinians from Israeli attacks because they are human beings like you and me and deserve such protection. If governments are unwilling to take such actions; then, everyone should join together to boycott Israeli products all around the world.
