Sham UN Human Rights Council Accuses Israel of War Crimes For Raid on Gaza Flotilla Terrorist Ship
The sham UN Human Rights Council accused Israel of war crimes for its raid on the Gaza Flotilla terror ship.
The “peace activists” on the Gaza Flotilla threw stun grenades and beat Israeli Soldiers with chains.
Video taken by IDF naval boat shows the passengers of the Mavi Marmara, one of the ships in the ‘Free Gaza’ Flotilla, violently attacking IDF soldiers who were trying to board the ship after having sent repeated requests for the boat to change course.
Large groups of passengers surrounded soldiers and beat them with metal poles and chairs, and threw one soldier over the side of the ship. Some passengers grabbed pistols from the IDF soldiers and opened fire. As a result of the attacks, seven IDF soldiers were injured, and nine of the passengers were killed.
The ‘Free Gaza’ Flotilla had publicly insisted on their non-violent intentions, however their violent attack on the IDF soldiers was clearly premeditated. They had knives, metal rods, firebombs and other items ready to use.
But the anti-Semites at the UN predictably blame Israel.
Israel has rejected as “one-sided” and “biased” an investigation commissioned by the UN Human Rights Council, which concluded that Israel’s military broke international laws during a raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.
Eight Turkish pro-Palestinian activists and one Turkish-American were killed and others injured after Israeli commandos boarded the six-ship convoy on May 31, as it tried to breach an Israeli naval blockade of the Gaza Strip.
Israel says its troops opened fire after coming under attack by activists wielding clubs, metal rods, and axes. The activists said they were defending their ship after it was attacked by Israeli soldiers in international waters.
The convoy’s passengers were detained and later deported by Israel.
There was widespread international criticism of the raid, which severely strained relations with Israel’s long-time Muslim ally Turkey and forced Israel to ease its blockade of Gaza.
‘Willful Killing, Torture’
In a 56-page report, the Human Rights Council’s fact-finding mission said the action by Israeli commandos was “disproportionate” and “betrayed an unacceptable level of brutality.”
The panel of three international lawyers said there was “clear evidence” to support prosecutions of a series of alleged crimes, including “willful killing” and “torture.”
It also said the Israeli blockade of Gaza was “unlawful” because of a humanitarian crisis in the Hamas-ruled territory.
The panel interviewed more than 100 witnesses in Britain, Jordan, Switzerland, and Turkey — but not in Israel.
