CNN Video: Israeli Patrol Boat Rams Gaza Relief Vessel (8:36)

“An Israeli patrol boat struck a boat carrying medical volunteers and supplies to Gaza early Tuesday as it attempted to intercept the vessel in the Mediterranean Sea, witnesses and Israeli officials said.

The Dignity arrives in Tyre, Lebanon, after it was reportedly rammed by an Israeli military vessel Tuesday.

1 of 3 CNN correspondent Karl Penhaul was aboard the 60-foot pleasure boat Dignity when the contact occurred. When the boat later docked in the Lebanese port city of Tyre, severe damage was visible to the forward port side of the boat, and the front left window and part of the roof had collapsed. It was flying the flag of Gibraltar.

The Dignity was carrying crew and 16 passengers — physicians from Britain, Germany and Cyprus and human rights activists from the Free Gaza Solidarity Movement — who were trying to reach Gaza through an Israeli blockade of the territory.

Also on board was former U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney.

Palmor called those allegations ‘absurd.’

‘There is no intention on the part of the Israeli navy to ram anybody,’ Palmor said.

British campaigners condemn Gaza raids – Annie Lennox ‘Shaken To The Core’


Celebrities and politicians have called for an end to Israel’s bombardment of the Gaza strip.

High-profile campaigners have called for an immediate end to the Israeli operation in Gaza. Annie Lennox, Ken Livingstone, Alexei Sayle and Bianca Jagger were among the speakers at a news conference on the issue. Ms Lennox accused Israel of ‘slaughter’.

An almost tearful Annie Lennox described the sadness she felt when she watched news of the Israeli strikes on Gaza – attacks which Israel says were in response to rocket fire by Hamas and its allies.

‘I was thinking as a mother and as a human being – how was this going to be a solution to peace?’ she said.

‘How are we going to find the answer in this way?’

She went on: ‘There has to be a place, ultimately, where people come to the table.

‘The reason I’m here today is to use my freedom of speech, my right as an individual in a free world, to encourage people to get together and protest against this means of ‘conflict resolution’ which will never work.’

Lennox’s emotional plea was followed by comments from Liverpudlian writer and comedian Alexei Sayle, who has a Lithuanian Jewish background.

He said: ‘It is important that Jewish people who have a public profile speak out to say that this has not been done in our name.

‘I think that Israel has an idea of itself as being noble.

“When you attack somebody but you have this idea of yourself that you’re the good guy – you think ‘how can this be?’

“What you do is blame the people you have killed – and you hear all the time from Israeli spokespeople that they are angry with the people that they have murdered, for making them murder them.

“It is the psychologist of the murderer, the rapist, the bully. And that’s what Israel is in this situation.”

Bianca Jagger then added her support to calls for an end to the violence and appealed to the US President Elect Barack Obama to speak up against the bombardment of the Gaza strip.

Also present at the news conference were the writer Tariq Ali, Lib Dem MP Sarah Teather and Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn.

The meeting was called ahead of a demonstration on Saturday that is expected to see thousands of people rally along the Embankment in London before marching to Trafalgar Square to demand an immediate end to the Israeli attacks…”

Youtube removed this video claiming it violates terms of service. Sure, they have millions of PIRATE MUSIC VIDEOS, MOVIES and other shit, yet the only ones that seem to violate the terms of service are those that in any way condemn the zionist crimes or are in support of and solidarity with the Palestinians.

anyways you can reach this video on the source channel BBC here
