Policy, which was brought up recently by government ministers purportedly as a way to deter potential terrorists, was ruled out by state's top legal officials.03:29 10.02.16 | 0 comments
The Law of the Sea says that naval blockades may be imposed during a period of armed conflict by either side against the other belligerent party. Furthermore, blockade runners who refuse to turn about or to stand to and allow themselves to be boarded for contraband inspection can be blown out of the water and sunk. It's much better for these misguided Hamastan-lovers to send their so-called aid through an authorized land crossing instead. Methinks these fools are just pulling this stunt to get their names in the newspapers. If these misguided fools really want the blockade of the Gaza Strip lifted, then they should convince Hamas to reach a permanent peace agreement (no half-assed temporary hudnas or tahadayas permitted) with Israel first including the mutual recognition of the 1950 armistice line as the permanent border, a complete ceasation of all hostilities by all parties, and the release of prisoners (except those convicted of war crimes). Furthermore, the Gaza Strip (Hamastan) should be treated separately from the West Bank (Fatahland) since they are geographically and politically two distinct stateless entities.
