Not Letting the Tragedies of Nuclear Weapons Destroy Our Future Prospects for Peace

NJ Peace Action Statement On Flotilla Attack

    We at NJ Peace Action deeply regret and are outraged by the deadly Israeli raid of the flotilla bringing humanitarian aid to Gaza.  The flotilla was attacked by Israeli naval vessels about 50 miles offshore — in international waters.  Although the people on the ships told the Israelis that they were unarmed civilians, some ten people have been killed.  We are very much saddened that a peaceful effort to deliver critically needed aid and food to the people in blockaded Gaza has ended so violently.
