(BLOG) Behind The Scenes Of The Next “Freedom” Flotilla

"The ever watchful Robin Shepherd informed us last week of a new flotilla being organised by ‘European Jews for a Just Peace’ so, as Robin suggests, it is time to take a look at who and what lies behind these latest ships of fools.

In common with the previous attempts to break Israel’s partial blockade of Gaza the organisers of this flotilla claim the moral and legal right to do so on the basis of their interpretation of the situation on the ground – an interpretation sadly lacking anchorage in facts. They claim that the blockade is ‘illegal’, ‘morally wrong’ and ‘indefensible’. They also claim that their actions are necessary due to the ‘humanitarian crisis ’ in Gaza. There is, of course, no truth in either of these oft-repeated claims and never has been – they are merely a smoke screen for political activism."
