Boat to Gaza: The Canadian Boat to Gaza organizers state that, "Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has now threatened to ’act firmly’ using ’force’ against the flotilla in May.

The Canadian Boat to Gaza is calling on all of the federal parties to denounce these threats against Canadians by Israel, which has demonstrated its willingness to use lethal force against civilians, similar to its fatal attack on last year’s freedom flotilla." The United Nations has stated, "Israel (should) heed the repeated calls of the international community to end its counterproductive and unacceptable blockade of Gaza.’" Amnesty International Canada has stated, "It is imperative that Israel lifts the blockade of Gaza without delay, as it is a form of collective punishment in contravention of international law and primarily affects the most vulnerable among the population."
