Yesterday Israel was set-up by Hamas ass-licking history-flip floppers who were trying to smuggle weapons into Israel while stirring up more cultural hate for Jews/Israelis. I call on anyone who comes to this blog to stand strong and loud in support of Israel. When confronted by idiotic irrational Islamic supporters, remind them who is always in defense and who is always on the offense. Watch and listen closely to the video below.
The San Remo Manual on International Law Applicable to Armed Conflicts at Sea says in paragraph 67:
67. Merchant vessels flying the flag of neutral States may not be attacked unless they:
(a) are believed on reasonable grounds to be carrying contraband or breaching a blockade, and after prior warning they intentionally and clearly refuse to stop, or intentionally and clearly resist visit, search or capture.
There is abundant evidence from both sides that there was prior warning, that the ships refused to stop, and that they resisted the visit and being searched. And the ships were very publicly breaching a blockade.
