Israel fires on Palestinian fishermen without cause… again and again and again…

How completely assinine this situation is.  Will anthing ever stop the evil of the Isreali military threat?  See here the practices of the powerful Israeli military against helpless Palestinian fishermen:

Look at what happened recently with this:

An Italian solidarity activist has been injured today by the Israeli Navy while he was accompanying fishermen in Gaza.

Vittorio Arrigoni was hit by flying glass as the Israeli navy used a high power water canon against the unarmed boats. The water canon smashed the glass surrounding the steering section of the boat, with shards lacerating Vittorio’s back. He was been taken to hospital immediately upon reaching shore, requiring ten stitches.

International activists were accompanying Gazan fishermen 8 miles out from shore, as they have been doing regularly since they arrived in Gaza with the ‘Free Gaza Movement’ boats.

The Israeli navy have imposed severe restrictions on fishing Gazan waters, regularly attacking any boats attempting to fish over 3 nautical miles. With international accompaniment, fishermen have been regularly attempting to fish outside the Israeli imposed limits where they can . Following Israel’s ‘disengagement’ from Gaza, Israeli restrictions on fishing were escalated so that Gazan fishermen could only fish safely within 3 nautical miles from the coast.
