JCPA Resource: Who Is Behind the Flotilla?

JCPA has an informative exposé worth reading, "Who Is Behind the Second Gaza Flotilla?". Ehud Rosen writes:

The second flotilla is coordinated by Muhammad Sawalha, a senior UK-based Muslim Brotherhood figure connected to Hamas. Many of the participating organizations can be directly linked with the Union of Good (UoG), a coalition of European charities affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, which in 2008 was designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. Treasury for transferring funds to Hamas. The UoG was initiated by Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, leader of the Muslim Brotherhood on a global scale, shortly after the outbreak of the Second Intifada in 2000.

See also the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center for more on Muhammad Sawalha and his involvement in the previous flotillla.
