The organizers of the failed Gaza flotilla last June are at it again, planning a flotilla to Gaza next January.  At least this time they are honest that it has nothing to do with humanitarian efforts.

As reported by The Associated Press:

Pro-Palestinian groups plan to sail a flotilla of boats through Israel’s sea blockade of Gaza as early as February in the second such attempt in less than a year, activists said Monday.

The activists, representing groups from over a dozen countries including Switzerland, Turkey and the United States, said the flotilla would be bigger than the one stopped by Israel earlier this year.

“It’s  not about the aid,” Huwaida Arraf of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition told reporters in Geneva.

Arraf said the aim will instead be to show that the Gaza blockade can be broken.

Of course it is about breaking the blockade, which at this point is almost entirely military.  And of course, American useful idiots will be front and center, as before.

The organizing group, US to Gaza, supported by the usual suspects and organizations, has named its ship “The Audacity of Hope” after Obama’s book:

There really is only one point to the flotilla, and that is to open up arms shipping by sea by Iran to Hamas in Gaza, and as one of the people interviewed in the video above let slip, to “free Palestine.”

Peace, baby.
