CBG note: The final 2 paragraphs of this article are somewhat objectionable from our standpoint. You may want to write to the author. In a report dated Sept. 13, 2011, following the release of the Palmer report, four independent UN Human Rights experts concluded that the blockade of Gaza is illegal: http://www.ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayNews.aspx?NewsID=11363&LangID=E
It is one of the most complex and controversial situations in the world. The relationship between the Palestinian territories and Israel is such a minefield of politics and emotion that it is routinely referred to as an example of a question with no answer.
But that doesn’t stop David Heap from trying to find that answer.
Heap is a linguistics professor at the University of Western Ontario. But last summer he put down his classroom teaching notes in exchange for a lifejacket and protest sign.
Heap was one of three Canadians who were part of last summer’s Freedom Waves flotilla, a joint effort by like-minded groups in Ireland and Canada to break the Israeli naval blockade of the Gaza Strip.
Heap and his shipmates were detained by Israel while trying to reach Gaza, held for a week, and then deported home.

One of three Canadians abducted by Israeli forces from a Canadian ship carrying food and medical supplies destined for Gaza last fall will be speaking in St. John’s next Monday.
David Heap, who is also a faculty member in the French Studies and Linguistics program at the University of Western Ontario, will discuss Canada’s role in the blockade of Gaza and offer a firsthand account of what happened on the Tahrir — the ship destined for Gaza. According to a news release issued today, he was detained in Israel without charges.Étiquettes:
