Turkey appeals ICC Mavi Marmara ruling


The Turkish Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) has appealed against the International Criminal Court's decision not to investigate Israel's deadly attack on the Mavi Marmara ship in 2010 which resulted in the killing of 10 people.


Ramazan Ariturk, one of the lawyers in the legal team representing IHH, said their appeal would be examined by the court's preliminary office.


Ariturk pointed out that the court prosecutor said the Israeli attack on the ship was "cowardly and violates international law", but the court refused to investigate it because of what it considered to be "lack of sufficient gravity".


Ariturk described the court's decision as "contrary to law".


Israeli navy commandos attacked the Mavi Marmara ship; the largest ship in the freedom flotilla which aimed to break the Israeli siege imposed on the Gaza Strip in 2010, using tear gas and live bullets which resulted in the death of ten Turks and injured 50 others.


IHH and the victims' families filed a criminal complaint with the International Criminal Court demanding the prosecution of Israeli officials who played a role in the attack.


Though both Israel and Turkey are not ICC members it was possible to file the case with the international court because the Mavi Marmara is registered in the Comoros which is a member of the court.

From recent news it seems Turkish leader Erdogan is going soft on Israel on Marmara issue. His silence shows an improved relationship between both nations. Here are couple of articles capturing it.

No changing of tune; any and every contrasting opinion is bombarded


with Nazi Germany and Jewish suffering:


"Civilized, politically correct Europe's silence over an anti-Semitic, neighborhood bully like Erdogan and his gang takes us back to the 1930s," said Lieberman, referring to the persecution of the Jews in Nazi Germany.


"We have to tell the truth and speak plainly, put it on the table," he said.


While Edrogan: "He also cautioned supporters against taking their anger out on Turkey's Jewish population, which numbers around 17,000."

Here is the latest on flotilla............



Turkish protesters pray outside Israeli envoy's house on 'Mavi Marmara' raid anniversary



Activists from Turkey's Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH) prayed in front of the Israeli ambassador to Ankara's house on Sunday morning to mark five years since the IDF's raid on the Mavi Marmara flotilla ship which was attempting to break the blockade of the Gaza Strip.

Israeli commandos raided the ship while it was en route to Gaza on May 31, 2010, killing nine people aboard the vessel. Israel contends that the soldiers acted in self defense after being attacked by the members of the IHH, which Jerusalem and several western countries designate as a terrorist organization. The group claimed to be bringing medical supplies to Gaza, while Israel said the flotilla was a provocation intended to instigate a violent event.

The incident sparked a break in diplomatic relations between Israel and Turkey as well as attempts by Ankara to try Israeli soldiers and officials for war crimes.

According to Turkish daily Hurriyet, members of the IHH from the city of Konya held morning prayers outside of the Israeli ambassador's house.

The group was scheduled to travel to Istanbul to take part in the "Free Jerusalem March" on Sunday evening, according to Hurriyet.

The anniversary was also marked in an event organized by the IHH in Gaza on Saturday night.

"The blood of the martyrs of Mavi Marmara will not go in vain," Mehmet Kaya, the IHH representative in Gaza was quoted as saying by Turkey's Anadolu news Agency.

An additional event, organized by Gaza aid organization Miles of Smiles, was held by activists in Gaza City on Sunday.

According to Ma'an News Agency the activists displayed photos of those killed in the flotilla raid, before sailing a short distance off the coast where they threw roses in the water.

Ma'an quoted Miles of Smiles spokesperson Ali al-Nazli as saying the commemoration was part of efforts to end Israel's blockade of Gaza. "We are here to say to Marmara martyrs we won’t forget you…and history won’t forget you." ....................................

Inspired by power of non-violent protest, a second flotilla sailed for Gaza and it was stopped by Israeli blockade (Which often denied by Israel in the past).


 This shows the blockade does exist and Gaza still needs attention from the international community.



Israel deserves thanks for not murdering unarmed people like the last time.

In many threads some members of B-net claimed that, Israel has left Gaza and there were NO blockade.


This Israeli raid to the tiny flotilla (This year) has proven that, Israeli blockade still exist.

No one is claiming there is no blockade.  There is definitely a blockade.  


The claims of the pro-Israel/pro-Palestine side are:  there is no occupation, Gaza is self-governed and not governed by Israel, the blockade is humane, the responsibility for ending the blockade rests with Hamas, not Israel.
