Message of support for Hull Flotilla Protest, Alan Johnson

Dear Martin,
Thank you for your e-mail of 2nd June.  I’m sorry I couldn’t make Saturday’s event.
I deplore Israel’s action against the Gaza Flotilla and fully support the European Union’s call for a full investigation.  The killing of innocent civilians cannot be defended.
Resolution 18.60, agreed in January 2009, demands the full flow of humanitarian and reconstruction materials into Gaza as well as an end to the trafficking of weapons.  Continuation of the blockade, not just by Israel but, until a few days ago, Egypt, brings misery to Palestinians and does nothing to weaken the hold of Hamas on the territory, which is its stated objective.
Vital supplies must be allowed into Gaza and the futile loss of civilian lives in this tragedy only increases that requirement.
As the Shadow Foreign Secretary has said, it is vital that the UK as a member of the United Nations Security Council and the European Union makes our voice heard, both in respect of this immediate incident and for a comprehensive drive for peace.
I hope the event went well.
Yours sincerely
Alan Johnson
Rt Hon Alan Johnson MP

  1. “The killing of innocent civilians cannot be defended.”

    So how come he wanted all those Iraqi civilians to be murdered?

    Shadow Foreign Secretary — that’s the guy who covers up the torture, right?
