    The blockade should stand, until Hamas disband and concede defeat. That ship has no right to just sail through the blockade, if they try to, Israel should be able to treat it like an attack on their land.

    've just started reading up on zionism and the early conflicts between palestine and the zionists and i have to say i'm so astounded at how...wrong they were. Just...wrong. Literally no other words come to mind.

    Anyway, good for them, I'm glad they brought along the holocaust survivor, a nice kick in the ass for the zionists who pulled the "we deserve palestine becuase of the holocaust" card. Hopefully there will be peace/some sort of reconciliation eventually, this has managed to completely ruin people's lives from both sides of the war.

    If this isn't directly relevant, I'm sorry - I haven't got that far along my "getting out from under my rock" phase

    Don't worry guys these lying Jews whose relatives have been killed by Palestinians and devious old holcoaust survivors are ludicrously anti-semitic. They're only doing this because they wanna destroy the noble state of Israel.

    if the choice was between Hamas and Jews(fateh) I would support Hamas
    however if it was between Hamas and people who follow what Allah(Swt) commanded us then Id support the others

    in other words I'm not 100% with nor against Hamas
    I understand their political views... I think they fail to go by them

    Which investigation? The United Nations Human Rights Council? Because if so they are NOT independent. They have been criticised by Ban Ki Moon and former High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson for acting according to political considerations as opposed to human rights. They are a politically motivated group.

    Let's look at some legal opinions by leaders in the field:

    Alan Dershowitz, professor of Law at Harvard Law School, wrote that the legality of blockades as a response to acts of war “is not subject to serious doubt.” He likened Israel’s maritime blockade of Gaza to U.S. naval actions in Cuba during the Cuban Missile Crisis, which the U.S. had deemed lawful though not part of an armed conflict.

    Similarly, Allen Weiner, former U.S. State Department attorney and legal counselor at the American Embassy in The Hague, and now a Stanford Law School professor, said "the Israeli blockade itself against Gaza itself is not illegal".

    Ruth Wedgwood, a professor of International Law and Diplomacy at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, said that under the law of armed conflict, which would be in effect given Hamas's rocket attacks on Israel and Israel's responses, Israel has "a right to prevent even neutrals from shipping arms to [Hamas]".
