Henning Mankell on the Gaza Aid Flotilla

June 3, 2010

Swedish crime writer Henning Mankell was on board one of the aid ships intercepted by Israeli forces on route to Gaza earlier this week. He has been talking about the ordeal to the Guardian and seems in little doubt that the Israelis arrived with the intention to fight:

“I think the Israeli military went out to commit murder,” Mankell said. “If they had wanted to stop us they could have attacked our rudder and propeller, instead they preferred to send masked commando soldiers to attack us. This was Israel’s choice to do this.

“And it was the most stupid thing they could have done, because look around, Israel has never been so criticised in the world as of today, and if you ask me, this blockade will be over within the next six months.” Via
