Israeli Envoy calls "Estelle" a Provocation While 7 Parliamentarians Sail to Break the Blockade... [View all]

Calling the latest sailing of a boat to challenge the Israeli naval blockade of Gaza a "provocation," Israel's ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor, called on the UN Secretary-General, the Security Council, and all responsible members of the international community to take immediate action to end this provocation."

Prosor added, "I want to stress that Israel is not interested in confrontation, but remains determined to enforce its naval blockade of the Gaza Strip -- and will take all lawful actions to this end. Their clear provocation raises tensions and could easily spark a serious escalation of the conflict."

Seven parliamentarians from five European countries are on sailing on the sloop "Estelle" to break the Israeli Blockade of Gaza. Among the 20+ passengers are parliamentarians from Greece, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and a retired parliamentarian from Canada.

More than 80 Irish Parliamentarians have signed a petition of support for the "Estelle's" mission, and 70 Greek Parliamentarians have also signed their petition.
