Four Swedes in Israeli prison after Gaza ship raid

Four Swedes have been transferred to a prison in Beersheba, while five other Swedes have been given an ultimatum by Israel, the Swedish foreign ministry said, following Israel's deadly storming of the Ship to Gaza convoy of ships.

Sweden: Israeli raid 'completely unacceptable'   • Henning Mankell not hurt
'Israel is guilty of colonialism and apartheid'   • World in shock after deadly Gaza ship raid   • Henning Mankell onboard the Gaza aid boat  • Freedom Flotilla: facts 

Daily Dagens Nyheter said late Monday that famous writer Henning Mankell, medical doctor Viktoria Strand, artist Dror Feiler, Saman Ali and Green Party MP Mehmet Kaplan have been given an ultimatum by Israel: sign a paper and be deported, or be taken to an Israeli court.

A total of 50 people are said to have been brought to the Ela prison in Beersheba. The four imprisoned Swedes are: Ulf Carmesund, Henry Ascher, Kimberly Soto Aguayo and Amil Sarsour.

"We won't be able to meet the jailed Swedes until tomorrow", Anders Jörle, press officer at the Foreign Office, told the newspaper.

Sweden’s Foreign Ministry Carl Bildt earlier on Monday called on the Israeli ambassador to explain the violence.

"This is a very serious situation, it will have very serious consequences," Carl Bildt told Swedish Radio said. "Therefore it is very important that we clarify facts and then we will continue with our response according to that".

Ambassador Benny Dagan told Swedish Radio News that Israel has international law on its side.

"We have the right to inspect the ships in the area, which is designated within the agreement between us and the Palestinians," Dagan said. "So once it's there we have every right to stop them, to inspect it. If they resist, we can use all kind of means to make sure that they will obey our orders."

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said he was "shocked" by the navy assault on a convoy carrying hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists, lawmakers and journalists through international waters towards besieged Gaza.

If it's that, what makes you happy
you must be very sick. In ancient times people like you were seen on the street everywhere lifting the right arm up to the sky - dreaming of a better world.

regards to your gang and don't have so much beer in the early evening

Quoting Ellie lighti:
Wow. Israel just killed 19 unarmed people and are sending others to jail without due process. Time for the world to rise up against this apartheid state and stop the madness. End the siege NOW!


Unarmed - you mean armed with iron rods, knives, pistols stolen from Israeli soldiers they knocked unconcious while others where thrown over board. Perhaps time re-evaluate your statement of these "activists" being unarmed.

It is so unfair. The palestinian and israeli children are suffering so bad due to all military violence. Why should it be so difficult to help eachother instead of harming. The leaders in the world must come to a conclusion. Try to forget the past and please look forward...

Now, lets don't let anyone get confused by facts. Lets all jump to conclusions and point fingers, without benefit of knowing exactly what happened. That's the liberal way.
