Dear Respected Office,

I write this letter to you with a real sense of danger which is prevailing on our British citizens who are in danger of kidnap, and imprisonment by the Israel Navel forces.

No doubt you are well aware of the 4 year long illegal siege imposed on Gaza and it's inhabitants by Israel, but you have chosen to stay quite, and let Gaza become a natural death camp, which is being suffocated of all living supplies.

Yet you chose to invade countries as big as Iraq, and feel proud by claiming to have liberated the people from a cruel dictator. The list goes on and on, and I can give you other examples. However, I feel now is not the time, because right now, time is in short supply.

In January of this year, British citizens were among 500 people who took part in a convoy of aid to the stricken region. When the convoy reached Egypt, British Citizen’s were brutally attacked by Egyptian Riot Police. In March '09, British Citizens were attacked in the same town, while on a previous convoy.

On both occasions, you chose to stay quite, and didn’t indulge in talks with Egyptian authorities to provide help, protection, and support for the British Citizens.

Yet, you claim to liberate a whole country from a dictator by sending our armed forces who have paid with their live’s to protect the live's of another nation. But yet you fail to protect our own British citizens from attacks, and torture at the hands of the Egyptian forces.

Your silence can be seen as supporting a very illegal siege on Gaza, even at the extent of peaceful British humanitarians being harmed.

The situation which I turn to you for your unprecedented support and resolve, is in regards to the “Freedom Flotilla” which is currently positioned in international waters. 750 people from 50 different countries, along with 15,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid are destined for Gaza. On Sunday, May 30th, they will sail towards Gaza through International waters. The journey time will be 24 hours.

There is great fear and danger surrounding this peaceful mission, as Israel as publicly stated that it has launched "Operation Sky Winds", whereby they willl stop the flotilla by any means. They have issued threats saying they will use force, kidnap all the passengers, and place them in a make shift prison. They will then process and deport everyone, and will sieze the 15,000 tonne of humanitarian aid on board, as well as the ships

I feel you are duty bond, and morally burdened to help the safe passage of the Flotilla, along with the British Citizens who are on board. Therefore, in line with the EU’s call for their safe passage, we ask you to conduct dialogue with Israel to ensure that the flotilla and British Citizens are under no threat of force or imprisonment. Can I trust you to do that?

This matter is one of great urgency, and I, along with the hundreds of thousands of British people look forward to an immediate reply to this letter. Please detail what actions you will be taking to ensure the safety of our British Citizens?

I hope that unlike previously, you choose to act, and act straight away, because I am informing you of the real dangers which our Citizens will face in the next 24 hours.

Therefore your actions need to be taken immediately before any harm can come to our citizens. I feel that if you ignore the contents of this letter, you will be failing to fulfil your duty to protect the citizens of this country.

I am confident that you will act promptly to the above concerns, and I look forward to a positive and rapid response, with which I can provide to the thousands of British citizen’s who seek assurance that our Government will, and is protecting our citizens to ensure a great nation remains sovereign.

Awaiting your response
