We the undersigned, Jews and non-Jews, left and right, Israelis and citizens of many countries, hereby express our sympathy and solidarity with the State of Israel in regard to the May 31, 2010 Gaza flotilla incident for the following reasons:
BECAUSE the Gaza flotilla was organized, funded, and manned by—among others—anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, anti-democratic, and pro-terrorist organizations.
BECAUSE these organizations support the genocide of Israeli Jews and the destruction of the State of Israel.
BECAUSE the participants were armed with lethal weapons and prepared to use them against Israeli soldiers.
BECAUSE the participants were solely responsible for the violence that occurred, including grievous bodily harm to several Israeli soldiers.
BECAUSE the flotilla was in open violation of international law.
BECAUSE Israel is the victim of a global public campaign of racist incitement and hatred.
BECAUSE the portrayal of the incident by the world media thus far has been inaccurate, untrue, and clearly biased against the State of Israel.
For all these reasons, we the undersigned hereby demand the following:
WE DEMAND an immediate, fair, and unbiased investigation into the organizations behind the flotilla and their role in the violence that ensued as a result of their actions.
WE DEMAND the immediate prosecution and conviction of those participants in the flotilla responsible for the violence and especially those responsible for the injuries to Israeli soldiers.
WE DEMAND an immediate, open, and fair investigation into the role of various national governments in funding, equipping, and facilitating the flotilla and the ensuing violence.
WE DEMAND an immediate end to anti-Israeli incitement in the media and in the political arena.
WE DEMAND an immediate and unequivocal statement of support for Israel’s actions from world leaders and organizations, especially President of the United States Barack Obama, including an acknowledgement of the legality of these actions.
WE DEMAND that the media cease and desist its biased and misleading reporting of this incident and confine themselves to the facts at hand.
WE DEMAND an immediate public apology to Israel from the organizations involved in the incident and the governments that supported them.
We hope and believe that this time truth will win out over lies, and that those behind this incident will be exposed and prosecuted for their actions.
