German Parliament calls for an end to the blockade on the Gaza Strip

The living conditions of the civilian population of Gaza must be urgently improved," said the motion, adding that the blockade was counterproductive.
The motion was supported by all parties from the three party governing coalition to the opposition Social Democratic Party; and the Green Party.
International pressure on Tel Aviv increased following Israel's vicious May 31 attack on an aid flotilla bound for Gaza.
Nine Turkish activists were killed in the attack and more than 50 others were injured in the attack.
The petition has sparked the wrath of Germany's influential Central Council of Jews which actins as a diplomatic representative of the Zionist regime in Berlin.
