Open Letter to Baroness Catherine Ashton

Felicity Arbuthnot

May 27, 2010

Baroness Catherine Ashton,
EU Foreign Minister.

Via email: catherine.ashton@ec.europa.eu

Dear Baroness Ashton,

The EU is, according to Liberal Democrat Leader and now Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, speaking recently at Chatham House (Institute of International Affairs) Israel's largest trading partner. I note you are working on a diplomatic bridge, between nations. Could you be kind enough, in the interests of humanity, to remind Israel of this and of the laws of the seas and of their obligat ions to let the Gaza flotilla through unhindered. You have expressed your deep concern regarding piracy on the high seas, this is potential piracy - and worse - which can be prevented.

You will be aware that the Dignity, whose passengers included Cynthia McKinney, Surgeon David Halpin founder of Dove and Dolphin (www.doveanddolphin.org.uk) was holed by the Israeli Navy late last year, whilst taking in aid and another aid ship so badly damaged by them that it cannot be salvaged - and a cargo which would have been a lifeline for many, lost. In both cases it was a miracle that no, or all, lives were not lost.

The flotilla will at no time be in Israeli waters, thus any intervention would be an illegal act. The governments of all those involved in this venture have made the strongest representation to the Israeli government for safe passage. Britain alone, has been strangely mute. Turkey, of course is a member of NATO and the vessel leaving from there, flying a Turkish flag. As NATO has an attack on one, is an attack on all policy, the implications are surely, extremely serious. Or is Israel, as ever, exempt from all the legal norms?

Respectfully,
Yours sincerely,

Felicity Arbuthnot (Dr. Hon. Phil.)
