Shurat HaDin (SH), the Israeli Legal Center, is implementing several strategies to stop the international flotilla against Israel. One is a civil lawsuit against 14 ships set to participate in this flotilla. A second action is Shurat HaDin's legal warning to Inmarsat that under U.S. law they will be open to charges of aiding and abetting terrorism if they provide services to these Gaza-bound ships. A third action by SH is their letter to maritime insurance companies informing them that by insuring sea vessels used by terrorists their company will be liable for any future attacks carried out by those terrorists. Read the sections below for the details of SH's actions.

Dear Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr.:
I am outraged that extremist groups have raised funds in the United
States to furnish equipment to outfit the Gaza flotilla boats that are
intended to breach the Israeli coastal blockade of the Hamas-
controlled Gaza strip. This is a blatant crime committed against one
of America's closest allies in support of a designated terrorist
organization. I respectfully request that the Department of Justice
immediately investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of this
