Flotilla Under Legal Fire

Shurat haDin's Nitsana Darshan Leitner

Melanie Phillips provides an excellent summary of the legal race led by Shurat haDin to thwart the flotilla, writing:

Is a bunch of young Israeli lawyers working round the clock sustained only by Diet Coke, falafel and cigarettes about to pull off the legal equivalent of the Six-Day War?

Israel famously won that war before it even started by destroying the Egyptian air force on the ground. Now it’s beginning to look as if the Gaza flotilla of fools and fanatics may be holed below the waterline before it even sets off on its cynical and potentially murderous stunt.

She includes a damning section on flotilla organizer and International Solidarity Movement leader Adam Shapiro in which he spells out the purpose of the campaign as one of total assault on Israel -- not humanitarian aid to the Palestinians:

Our ground is the whole world. And that’s where our resistance has to be. The whole world... We already have a third intifada. It’s going on right now. It’s going on all over the world.

Read it all.

I think we are beginning to quickly realize that the Freedom Flotilla II's intentions are not to provide aid to Gaza, and Israel has every right to protect themselves. I would like to invite you to check out Prevent the IHH Flotilla Towards GazaGet Started
