Nicaragua cuts ties with Israel

Ma’an/Agencies – 02/06/2010

The Nicaraguan government Tuesday suspended the country’s diplomatic ties with Israel in protest of Israel’s deadly raid on the Gaza-bound international aid flotilla on Monday, various media outlets reported.

Government spokeswoman Rosario Murillo, who is wife of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, announced the move in a short statement, the Chinese Xinhua news agency reported.

“Nicaragua suspends from today its diplomatic relations with the government of Israel,” said the statement.

The Nicaraguan government “emphasized the illegal nature of the attack on a humanitarian mission in clear violation of international and humanitarian law,” it added.

The move comes as Turkish-Israel relations hit an all time low, with at least 16 countries calling in Israeli ambassadors.

The UN Security Council on Tuesday called for an independent probe into the attack, which saw at least 10 activists killed by Israeli forces after they intercepted the Gaza-bound aid boat in international waters.

  2. Good on you Nicaragua! B.Benhamid, nice dream. To bad it will never come true. It doesn’t matter who is president, as long as American pols continue to take money from israeli pacs. American pols, the best pols money can buy. How come we have not heard anything from our so called”good guy” polititians? Like R. Paul and D. Kuchinich, what say you? More countries need to do this. Why is everyone so afraid of israel?

  7. My fathers side of the family is Nicarauguan
    and I was raised Amerikan in Amerika, I am not proud
    to be an Amerikan, our leaders are cowering currs,
    Israels lapdogs and attack dogs, however; I am proud to
    say I am 1/2 Nica! I wish I was living in Nicaraugua
    so I could feel pride towards my country, instead of
    this prison camp run by liars and thieves!

  9. This story get even weirder…
    Turkey has found an assasination list of activist; dropped by one of the Israeli soldiers in the melee..
    It has activist pictures their names etc..

    The killing of these activits it would seem was not accidental but in some cases targeted assassination….
