    Gaza Flotilla Organizer Puts Lie To “Humanitarian” Purpose

    Gaza Flotilla Organizer Puts Lie To “Humanitarian” Purpose

    Adam Shapiro, one of the organizers of flotillas to break the sea blockade of Gaza in 2009 and again in 2010, was interviewed on PBS. In the interview, Shapiro made clear that the primary purpose of the flotilla was political.

    Only upon prompting by Gwen Ifill did Shapiro even mention a supposed humanitarian purpose:

    Shapiro was right to the extent that he recognizes the blockade as political, and the flotilla’s purpose primarily as political. The shipping of humanitarian supplies merely was the excuse and the tactic.

    Much like the internationalists who have aligned themselves with Islamists on the West Bank to protest the barrier built by Israel to stop suicide bombers, the goal is the destruction of Israel.

    Whatever it takes they will do, and it if means putting civilians in harms way to gain publicity and international condemnation of Israel, they will do that.

    Robin, Shapiro is a Brooklyn born Jew who believes in the separation of the religion from a consideration of it as an ethnic group. He does not practice. His wife is a Palestinian American. They met at seeds of peace in 2001 or so. Seeds is a really great group but Shapiro is not as great.

    I'm brooklyn born and I can tell from a certainty that Mr.Shapiro, has no Brooklyn accent, but a very subtle underlay of a slavic intonation. If he's a KGB type agent, for or against Israel, he's certainly worth his weight in gefilte fish. jojo
