Mankell: Will Israel drop an atomic bomb?

"What will happen next year when we come back with 100 boats?"

Swedish crime writer Henning Mankell, who participated in the Gaza-bound aid flotilla attacked by Israeli commandos, on Tuesday evening landed at the Landvetter airport, southwest Sweden, after having spend the last days in an Israeli prison.

“I accuse [Israel] of piracy and kidnapping and murder" the renowned author of the Wallander detective series told reporters at the airport. "Today we know that Israel is on its knees. Noone could predict that the rest of the world would react in this way. They are completely isolated. People are completely fed up with this brutality and this violence that the power (Israel) has on its conscience." 

Israel moved swiftly on Wednesday to deport hundreds of activists detained during a deadly raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla, as world pressure mounted for a full investigation of the fiasco. 

“What will happen next year when we come back with hundreds of boats? Will they drop an atomic bomb?", Henning Mankell asked rhetorically.

At arrival in Sweden, Mankell told Swedish Radio that Israeli claims of finding weapons on the ships are false - one such weapon was his own razor.

The author was among 10 Swedish nationals on the boats taking aid to Gaza which were boarded by Israeli commandos on Monday. The raid left at least nine dead. All the activists were detained by Israeli authorities.

A lawmaker, Mehmet Kaplan, and a doctor, Victoria Strand, also returned Tuesday after chosing to be expelled rather than face legal action in Israel.
