U.S. Lawmakers Say Americans in Gaza Flotilla May Be Prosecuted

Two members of Congress said U.S. citizens who join a flotilla planning to break Israel’s embargo of the Gaza Strip should face prosecution.

“Israel’s blockade of terrorist territory is absolutely legal,” Congressman Gary Ackerman said during a visit to Jerusalem today with a fellow Democratic representative from New York, Nita Lowey. “And the people who would run an international legal blockade are subject to the legal ramifications of all countries, including the United States.”
