My understanding is that the siege of Gaza is illegal because article 101 of the San Remo Manual says any blockade should not cause suffering to the civilian population, while the Red Cross amongst many others are saying there is a humanitarian disaster there. The flotilla intentions were in keeping with UNSC resolution 1860, so there was nothing illegal in their actions. The matter of disproportional use of force is very much a matter when you consider that people on three boats offered only non-violent resistence and got heavily roughed up for it. Come to that the number of causalties on the Mavi Marmara was pretty excessive too. Then you have the appalling brutal and sadistic treatment of the detainees on the boats and Ashdod (injured left on the deck under the helicopter suffering the draught and the spray for hours, trod and kicked too, people beaten up for not signing forms or handing over their passports, kept in the backs of vans for hours and routinely beaten.) Since Eiland chose to pretend all this did not happen perhaps we had better get the neutral team in and see what they say. That's my understanding.
