Gilad Atzmon argues that Israel’s murder in international waters of aid workers bound for Gaza was a premeditated act of savagery and that the international community, foremost NATO and the European Union, must respond decisively by cutting all relations with the rogue Jewish state.

As I write this piece the scale of Israel’s slaughter at sea of Gaza bound aid workers remains to be confirmed. However, we already know that at around 4 a.m. Gaza time hundreds of Israeli army commandos stormed the Free Gaza international humanitarian fleet. We learn from the Arab media that at least 16 peace activists have been murdered and more than 50 injured. Once again, it is devastatingly obvious that Israel is not trying to hide its true nature: an inhuman murderous collective fuelled by psychosis and driven by paranoia.

For days the Israeli government has been preparing the Israeli public for the massacre at sea. It said that the flotilla carried weapons and that it had “terrorists” on board. Only yesterday evening it occurred to me that this malicious Israeli media spin was there to prepare the Israeli public for a full scale deadly military operation in international waters. Make no mistake about it: if I knew exactly where Israel was heading and the possible consequences, the Israeli cabinet and military elite were fully aware of it all the way along. What happened yesterday wasn’t just a pirate terrorist attack. It was actually murder in broad day light, even though it happened in the dark.

"The massacre that took place yesterday was a premeditated Israeli operation. Israel wanted blood because it believes that its 'power of deterrence' expands with the more dead it leaves behind."

Yesterday at 10 p.m. I contacted Free Gaza Movement and shared with them everything I knew. I understood that hundreds of peace activists, most of them elderly people, had very little chance against the Israeli killing machine. I was praying all night for our brothers and sisters. At 5 a.m. GMT the news broke to the world. In international waters Israel raided an innocent international convoy of boats carrying cement, paper and medical aid to the besieged Gazans. The Israelis were using live ammunition, murdering and injuring everyone around them.

Today we will see demonstrations around the world, we will see many events mourning our dead. We may even see some of Israel’s friends “posturing” against the slaughter. Clearly, this is not enough.

The massacre that took place yesterday was a premeditated Israeli operation. Israel wanted blood because it believes that its “power of deterrence” expands with the more dead it leaves behind. The Israeli decision to use hundreds of commandoes against civilians was taken by the Israeli cabinet together with Israel’s top military commanders. What we saw yesterday wasn’t just a failure on the ground. It was actually an institutional failure of a morbid society that a long time ago lost touch with humanity.

It is no secret that Palestinians have been living under siege for years. But it is now down to other nations to move on and mount the ultimate pressure on Israel and its citizens. Since the massacre yesterday was committed by a popular army that followed instructions given by a “democratically elected” government, from now on every Israeli should be considered as a suspected war criminal unless proven otherwise.

Considering the fact that Israel stormed vessels sailing under Irish, Turkish and Greek flags, both NATO members and EU countries must immediately sever their relationships with Israel and close their airspace to Israeli aircraft.

Considering yesterday’s news about Israeli nuclear submarines being stationed in the Gulf, the world must react quickly and severely. Israel is now officially mad and deadly. The Jewish State is not just reckless with human life, as we have been following the Israeli press campaign leading to the slaughter Israel actually derives pleasure in inflicting pain and devastation on others.
