Moammar Mashni (VIC) responds to Michael Burd’s letter in the Financial Review 8Jul11 PUBLISHED July 8, 2011

There is only one reason Israel sought to ban journalists who take part in the Gaza Freedom Flotilla and that is so no independent verification could be presented to the world if there was a repeat of the 2010 massacre of 9 innocent civilians on board the Mavi Marmara.

Let us not forget, if there was not an illegal blockade of Gaza, there would be no need for a humanitarian aid flotilla.
It is precisely because there were independent journalists onboard the flotilla last year that the truth was revealed about what Israel did and not what Mr Burd (letters, 07/07/2011) would have us believe.
