The First Black President Says Nothing When A Black Former Lawmaker Is Imprisoned By Israel - You Keep The Change

Nearly a day after the detention of former US lawmaker Cynthia McKinney by Israeli forces, Washington has yet to make a reaction.

Israeli Navy detained former US congresswoman and Nobel Prize laureate Cynthia McKinney and twenty other human rights activists on board a relief boat outside Israel's territorial waters on Tuesday as they were heading to Gaza on a humanitarian mission. Tel Aviv claims the boat was trying to break Israel's two-year siege on Gaza.

Ms McKinney -- the 2008 Green Party nominee for President of the United States-- has accused Tel Aviv of violating the international law by seizing an aid vessel in international waters. "This is an outrageous violation of international law against us. Our boat was not in Israeli waters, and we were on a human rights mission to the Gaza Strip," McKinney said in a statement. "We are asking the international community to demand our release so we can continue our journey," she added. "My wife and I are very concerned about her safety," Cynthia's father told Press TV in a phone call. Bill McKinney said that the US government should support Cynthia's message and added, "Her major concern is human." Green Party leaders have called on the White House and the US State Department to intervene and demand the immediate release of all the activists.

On Monday, the International Committee of the Red Cross warned of dire humanitarian situation in Gaza, saying 1.5 million Palestinians living in the coastal sliver are 'trapped in despair' because of the continuing Israeli blockade on the territory. Since June 2007, when Israel imposed a blockade on the territory, no raw material has entered Gaza, stalling any attempt to rebuild the strip. According to the humanitarian agency report, seriously ill patients were not receiving the treatment they needed and thousands of Gazans whose homes were destroyed during Israel's three-week Christmas war were still without shelter.

At the risk of sounding VERY cynical, of what political/PR consequence would the mission have been without this Israeli reaction?

It would have had little consequence without that reaction. Which, I can only assume, is what McKinney had in mind, now having provoked the Israelis twice in this manner.

II I'm not sure of the title of your post. Are you saying that because McKinney is Black and so is our President that they should have solidarity or something? Cuz he sure didn't say anything when Alan Keyes was jailed for protesting his visit to Notre Dame. Color is a stupid wedge issue.

I think the Administration is focusing on a higher issue, like focusing on Israel not launching a pre-emptive strike on Iran.

I'd say the President has his hands full, and if you listen to most, he is trying to do too much.

Hope all are well.
