Israel is a Rogue State.

May 31, 2010 11:58 PM

Free PalestinePreston's LibDem Parliamentary Spokesman, Mark Jewell has called Israel a rogue state. Commenting, Mark Jewell said, "With the news today that Israel have intercepted a relief convoy for Gaza and killed 9 people in international waters together with the continued blockade of Gaza, Israel are no better than a rogue state."

"Until Israel lift the blockade of Gaza we must stop arming Israel, suspend the EU-Isreali Co-operation Agreement and seek real peace by opening talks with Hamas."

"Even as a non-Muslim I am outraged by Israel's continued flouting of international laws and UN resolutions. Gaza is a humanitarian disaster that the whole world must speak out against."

Gaza Blockade Update

Goods Category UN estimate of what is needed per week What Israel let through last week

Food and consumable goods 2540 trucks 519 trucks (20.4% of minimum needed)

Cooking Gas 1,500 tons 837 tons (55.8% of minimum needed)

Diesel fuel for power station 4,900,000 million litres 1,079,000 litres (22.0% of minimum needed)

Since June 2007 Israel has imposed a blockade on the Gaza strip. Israel controls the borders of Gaza and only allows limited amounts of aid and other vital supplies through.

The 1.5 million people of Gaza are deprived of basic necessities such as concrete to rebuild areas bombed by Israel and are living with rolling electricity blackouts and minimal produce to buy.
