to claim Israel is a democratic state is the most far-fetched thing from the truth when you look at what's happening in Gaza. This ship was not armed and all-world including Israeli government very much knew about its humanistic intentions.Blaming Hamas for blockage has always been used as a cheap excuse to remove Palestinian people from their basic rights to survive.What Israel really wants is to increase the tension and grief so Hamas will have more support from Palestinians and they will use it as an excuse to continue killing civilians and removing them from their homes.

Not long ago there was an earthquake in eastern Turkey where the Kurdish terrorists known to be very strong and effective amongst people.Although there were clear evidences that a lot of aid from Turkish government were stolen and used by those terrorists Turkish government didn't leave those people in that desperate situation.I believe international community has a lot to learn from Turkish people about human rights. But unfortunately good and just people have the weakest voice in the world today.

Some Human Rights lawyers are very unrealistic. They see international law from their pinky perspective. I am not defending Israel. Those activists were aware of the ongoing armed conflict between Hamas the terrorist organization and the state of Israel. Israel has the absolute right to defend its civilians from the Hamas rackets which target Israeli towns and villages indiscriminately. Is it not 'illegal' to besiege a terrorist organization having control on civilians and using them as human shields.

The people of Ghaza have 'democratically' chosen Hamas to represent them, and here is the legal and moral dilemma not only for Israeli but for the entire international community! Even Egypt, other Arab states and the Palestinian authority in the West Bank consider Hamas as a ruthless outlwaed terrorist organization having a de facto military control on the civilians of Ghaza. However, Rome Statute is very clear, and I personally agree with the OTP decision as the incident does not qualify the requirement gravity. Israel is a democratic state and has an independent legal system, I'd recommend this Turkish lawyer to go to the Israeli courts to claim reparation instead of wasting the time of the ICC and the time of the international community.
