The Israeli Protest against the sailing of vessels from Turkey to The Gaza Strip. (Translation: Gil Israel Davis)

Hundreds of Israeli citizens on many Israeli yachts and vessels from Israel are to Demonstrate and sail on the 22nd of May, this coming Saturday, against the Turkish vessels headed towards the Gaza Strip.

The Prime Minister of Turkey Erdogan, gave his personal blessing for this sailing. because he wishes to embarrass Israel by this act. Israeli's will demonstrate against the Armenian Holocaust, the massacre of the Kurds by the hands of Turkey and to show the atrocities made by the Palestinians Against Israeli Citizens in the last 9 Years.

Ten's of groups of Israeli citizens will demonstrate from their boats against the continued Kassam Rockets attacks by Hamas. And the capture of of the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit and the continued brutality against Israeli Citizens.

The Israelis will also demonstrate what they define as "The hypocrisy of the Turkish regime" which is trying to incite hatred against the Israeli's and to despise their suffering and their security needs.

The intention of Turkey is also to try and cause their organizers distress to the State of Israel. Turkey wants to Hamas sending a false message that the Gaza Strip is under siege.

Dr. Guy Bechor, the advocate behind this sail, added: "This is not a pro-Palestinian activity, but an anti-Israel provocation" due to the fact that all the equipment on this boats could have entered the Gaza Strip by the Egyptian controlled Rafah Crossing point or by the Red Cross in Israel.

This unfortunate event by Turkey is to be watched carefully and with interest by the International media . Israel is now fed up that constantly it is being down trodden by unfriendly factors and that our sovereignty is being disreputable." The Israeli boats will depart at 10.30 in the morning from the marina in Herzlia.

The Israeli demonstrators are made up of volunteers who oppose the actions of the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan. Israelis who are interested in helping the demonstration and wish to help join and volunteer by means of taking their boats and yachts and in any other ways are advised to contact the organizers for additional information by sending an e-mail to: mashatgadol@gmail.com

The Association of Turkish Jews in Israel says:

One of the primary goals of The Association of Turkish Jews in Israel is to contribute to the friendship among the peoples of Israel and Turkey. Within this context and in the name of the long history of our positive relationship we denounce the fact that; a flotilla led by Turkish ships is endeavoring to breach the Israeli territorial waters closed due to security reasons, with the pretext of breaking the blockade of Gaza. We are very much concerned that this initiative will further harm the Israeli-Turkish relationship which is already very tense.
Although not even one Israeli lives there and not one stone has been occupied , the radical Islamist regime sitting in Gaza has fired more than 8000 rockets into Israel with the aim of destroying this country; finally leading to a military operation in 2009. Consequently the territorial waters of Gaza have been declared a military zone by the Israeli Government; to prevent the repetition of these atrocities.
We have to draw your attention to the fact that the radical Islamic IHH; which is leading the so called aid being shipped to Gaza; has been in the list of many countries (since 2008) as an organization whose functions have been prohibited. Another fact is that at least twice the amount of supplies they declare to carry goes into Gaza every week through Israel herself.
Turkeys humanitarian aid to Gaza is most welcome as stated by Israels consul general in Istanbul. However this has to be carried out through legal channels and not by trying to break through a prohibited zone. In this case Kizilay is the only acceptable legal channel and we would heartily support any aid through them
We would like the Turkish people to consider the fact that 10 times more humanitarian aid could be supplied with the money the IHH has spent on forming this convoy and we ask them to look for the real reasons leading to this provocative issue.
We would like to state that IHH and their followers will bear the responsibility of any negativity that might arise due to this breaching, given the fact that The Israeli Naval Forces have declared that they will not allow their passage.
We hope that whatever the results are the friendship between Israel and Turkey; which we value very much; will not be harmed.
We would like to add that we have conveyed our standpoint and concerns to Turkeys Ambassador to Israel in Tel Aviv in an effort to prevent this dangerous escalation.(improper behavior)
