Writes the Brooklyn resident, inter alia:
"The Flotilla targets the denial of Palestinian self-determination, not a humanitarian crisis. It aims to break the siege, not only because the siege causes hardship for Palestinians, but also because it obstructs their inherent rights to determine their collective destiny, and that of their historic homeland. The goal is not a reliable flow of international charity, or even a functional economy, but rather Palestinians’ sovereignty over their own coasts and territory."Read more: http://gazatvnews.com/2011/06/of-course-the-flotilla-is-a-political-provocation-joe-catron/ though note that Ron Curiel is Israel's envoy to the EU, not, as Joe has it, the UN.
As for that siege - well, look at the kind of things the Israelis are, in fact, letting through.
