A statement from PGPO on the detention of Rachel Corrie

June5th 2238 Msian Time– The Perdana Global Peace Organisation (PGPO) demands the unconditional and immediate release of all peace activists, humanitarian aid workers and crew members aboard the Rachel Corrie that was illegally seized and forcibly towed at gunpoint to Ashdod by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).
The Malaysian delegation consists of Member of Parliament, Nizar Zakaria, PGPO members Shamsul Akmar, Matthias Chang and Ahmad Faizal Azumu as well as two members of the press, Halim Mohamed and Jufri Judin from TV3. They are joined on board by former United Nations Assistant Secretary General, Dennis Halliday, Nobel Prize Laureate, Mairead Maguire, Derek and Jenny Graham from the Free Gaza Movement and documentary film maker Fiona Thompson.
The immoral and indefensible actions by the IDF in seizing and towing the Rachel Corrie from international waters to Ashdod thereby disallowing the aid ship from reaching the port of Gaza is an act of piracy. Israel has thus committed serious crimes on the high seas. PGPO demands that all kidnapped Malaysians and other nationals on board the Rachel Corrie be swiftly released unharmed.
Israel has no right to kidnap anyone especially from international waters nor forcibly detain and imprison them. Such primitive unilateral actions transgress international laws and fundamental human rights.
We call for Malaysians of all faiths and creed to pray for the safety of the kidnapped Malaysians as well as other members of the humanitarian aid flotilla. The people of Malaysia must stand united against injustice and cruelty perpetrated by the Zionist regime against members of the peace flotilla whose only crime is to want to lift the intolerable siege and alleviate the suffering of the innocent and brave people of Gaza.

  1. Banyak geng nak Najib lantik KJ jadi Menteri kalau dilihat semangat dia sokong Palestin melalui Aman Malaysia. Kau pun kenalah usaha kuat untuk bos kau Mukhriz jadi Menteri sebab usaha bapak dia dalam Perdana Global Peace hentam Yahudi. Hebat! Dua orang tunjuk kekuatan untuk jadi popular. Kita tengok siapa jadi Menteri penuh nanti. Jangan ada yang tergolek Dog dah le…itupun kalau ada rombakan Kabinet3.

    • Hmmmm

      Jadi, Kes Gaza ni dah jadi permainan untuk tunjuk siapa lebih hebat untuk jadi pilihan?

      Sebenarnya semua patut tahu tentang apa akan terjadi kepada mereka yang terlibat,di Malaysia atau di Lautan Mediterranean. Mesej yang telah diberi olih pihak Yahudi adalah…..Don’t fool around with us……

      Mesej kita pula?

      • JB

        Satu dunia tahu Yahudi Laknaktullah ni tak peduli siapa pun. Apatah lagi sejarah Islam. Ketua Polis Dunia US pun tak dipandang Zionis. Kita pun dah berpuluh tahun bagi sokongan kpd Palestin. Penamat cerita kezaliman Yahudi ini pun dah termaktub dalam Al Quran.
        Niat dan tindakan kita baik dan harus dipuji tp pemimpin dan kerajaan kita selalunya alpa angkara mainan politik mereka sehingga rakyat menjadi mangsa.
        Di Malaysia pun apa kurangnya permasalahan rakyat yang miskin serta ribuan pemuda pemudi dan graduan mengganggur juga perlu pembelaan. Cuma suasana dua tempat ini berbeza.
        Kita semua tahu kehebatan hidup Mukhriz Mahathir dan Khairy Jamaluddin disamping keluarga tercinta mereka.
        Bertindaklah Aman Malaysia dan Perdana Global Peace Organisation untuk masa depan anak bangsa kita yang perlukan bantuan dan pembelaan.

  2. Israel commandos raided Freedom Flotila. But why didn’t they use flashbangs, smoke bombs and rubber bullets or even Tasers ? Instead, live bullets were used. They have broken many international laws in this case – maritime and criminal – and also the Mossad assassination operation in Dubai. Who will bring justice to the face of Earth ?

  3. I hope Israel sends the humanitarian aid to the needy Palestinians with all goods unharmed and as good as when seized.

  4. Damn the Israelis. The UN should sanction them. Ops. Wait. The UN is the tool used by the Illuminati itself to rule the world via The New World Order.

  5. What the Israelis did was beyond the international law.

    What exactly did Hitler see in Jews back then?

    • Yes I wonder! Did he see the blatant discriminations, domination, disrespect for the defenceless by some of the Jews that the world is seeing now?

      And the world knows by now that the Jews will always play the victims.

  6. Turkey should follow Malaysia’s action of sending a petition to sue Israel in the International Criminal Court.

    • What can ICC do? Maybe have a mock trial without Israel and claim moral victory again. The least Islamic countries can do is to use their advantage and have oil embargo against US and force them to take some action but too bad even these Islamic countries value economy gain more than their own brotherhood.

      • have oil embargo against US? Not a good idea.

        The least the american would do is “regime change”.

        Why do think they bombed Iraq?

        mohamed

      • “regime change”? Democrat or republican? Both are pro Zionist. As long as the Muslim countries especially the Arabs continue to kow tow to American and US dollar, no way they can solve the Gaza problem. The Zionist has absolute control on the American.

  7. Israeli forces boarded and steered Rachael Corrie to Ashdod was expected. The speed the captured activists were released demonstrated how embarrassed and damned the Israelis were on the continuing blockade. It was a sweet victory for the flotilla with the almost the entire world now condemning the Israeli inhuman persecution of the Gazans. We are however equally sad at the loss of lives during the unwarranted assault of Mavi Marmara.

    The hope is now that by bringing world attention to the pitiful state of the plight of the Gazans, Israel will ease and eventually end the unpalatable blockade. V for victory to all the activists involved especially those Malaysians.

    Funny none of the Malaysian activists are linked to the Pakatan Rakyat especially PAS. PAS must realize with their current political structure even with DSAI as their ultimate head, they cannot match the contribution by BN linked NGOs in the cause of the Palestinians. PAS vis-à-vis Pakatan Rakyat is only good at talking with empty loud mouths as they demonstrate like the red shits of Thailand

    • That’s how it is.

      Both Mavi Marmara and Rachel Corrie won moral victory despite it failed its objectives. Strategically, they won.

      Malaysians are proud to be part of this history.

      Yes, that’s what Pakatan Rakyat are made of. They are only interested in playing politics and nothing else.

      We can see BN members and supporters even serving citizens of the world. This is the real attitude of BN members. Unlike PAS, UMNO can be proud that members like MP Nizar Zakaria and Ipoh Barat Youth Leader Ahmad Faizal Azumu ‘walk the talk’, in upholding Islam in the through sense of fighting for the oppressed. A real Fardhu Kifayah and not just rhetorics.

    • “..Israel will ease and eventually end the unpalatable blockade…” Amin

  8. Yes, we have heroes who were on the fotilla but the aids are still not given to the Gazan yet. Since Turkey has diplomatic relationship with Israel, we might as well capitalise on this.

    I suggest these steps –

    1. To get a new ship say Rachel Corrie II (RC2).
    2. Turkish Govt to get list of items that are considered save by the Israeli Govt. However, this list need to be realistic. TunM once said cement are not ‘allowed’ !!!
    3. Israeli and Turkish Govt representative to be present when loading RC2 to ensure only ‘allowed’ items are loaded.
    4. Israeli and Turkish Govt to be on board RC2 from Turkey to Gaza. This is to ensure no new items are loaded at sea.
    5. Escorts by Turkish and/or Israeli marine vessel would be great.
    6. Upon reaching Gaza, aids are quickly distributed to the Gazan people.

    I know this is too ideal but a win-win situation MUST be reached now so that the Gazan get the aids fast.

    Our heroes sufferred for about 28 hours while the Gazan had this for years.

  9. JOKE OF THE DAY: Haris Ibrahim thinks Pakatan can produce a fair and balanced newspaper….

  10. Until and unless the world can get US to steer away a lot from the Zionist Israelis, not much can be done about Israeli intransigence and cock-headedness.

    It means knocking a big dent into the Israeli Lobby’s heads in Washington.

    However much Obama may want to get on a new path, it’d remain mere lip service. The bloody Israeli Lobbyists are all over the places on the US campaign trails.

    Can Najib get Obama to do something? Haha, Rais Yatim got exited jumping about with his camera by the mere chance of being photographed with Obama. And he let Bernama print that story. And that’s supposed to be Najib’s Minister of some mettle!
