All aboard! Obama pals back violent Gaza flotilla
Activists from president’s circle of friends top supporters of anti-Israel protest ships
The group behind the Gaza flotilla that engaged in deadly clashes with Israeli commandos today counts among its top supporters the friends and associates of President Barack Obama, namely the founders of the Weather Underground terrorist organization, William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, as well as Jodie Evans, the leader of the radical activist organization Code Pink.
Earlier today, Israeli navy commandos raided the six-ship flotilla, encountering heavy resistance and live fire from the activists. Several activists were killed and dozens of others were reportedly injured, as were several of the Israeli commandos.
The flotilla was organized by the Free Gaza Movement, a coalition of leftist human rights activists and pro-Palestinian groups engaged in attempts to break a blockade imposed by Israel on the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.
Ayers, Dohrn and Evans’ Code Pink have led several recent Free Gaza Movement initiatives, including attempted marches into the Gaza Strip. Dorhn was in the Middle East just last month on behalf of the movement.
Ayers and Dohrn were close associates for years with President Obama, while Evans was a fundraiser and financial bundler for Obama’s presidential campaign.
Hussein Obama’s closeÂ family friends, terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, and top campaign bundler Jodie Evans from Code Pink are top activists with the Gaza flotilla group thatÂ attacked the IDF today.
Code Pink activist and radical leftist Jodie Evans was one of Barack Obama’sÂ top bundlers during the 2008 campaign.

“In the information battlespace, the jihadis can count on the complicity of the subdued, Islamophiliac press. They can physically attack Israeli troops and count on the corrupt media to package any act of Israeli self-defense as an aggression. Then this repackaging will lead to international condemnation, United Nations Security Council resolutions, and further delegitimization of Israel.”
“The Jihad Flotilla and the Media War Against Israel,” by Pamela Geller forÂ Big Journalism,
And the demonization and isolation of Israel proceeds apace. “Israel’s military spokesman has accused the organisers of the flotilla of organising a ‘violent provocation.'” “Mideast: Flotilla, World ‘Shocked’ After Israeli Attack,” fromÂ ANSAmed,
Propaganda Not Humanitarianism
“this mission is not about delivering humanitarian supplies, it’s about breaking Israel’s siege.”
The Schalit family on Thursday asked for assistance from international left-wing activists due to arrive in the Gaza Strip later in the day.
If the left-wing activists pressure Hamas to allow international organizations to bring letters and food packages to Gilad Schalit, the kidnapped soldier’s family has agreed to support the international expedition’s attempt to dock, Army Radio reported Thursday.
Lawyer Nick Kaufman presentedÂ the offerÂ to theÂ organizationÂ “Free Gaza,” one of the organizers of the flotilla headed for Gaza, which promptly refusedÂ the offer.
“We are disappointed that the organizers of the flotilla have refused to also provide basic humanitarian assistance to our son, who has been held in Gaza four years in contradiction of international law,” said the Schalit family. J’Post has more>>
The so-called peaceful leftists and Pro-Gaza activists who attacked the Israeli soldiers todayÂ with pipes, metal rods and chairs belong to a terrorist-linked organization. TheÂ International Humanitarian Fund (IHH), which plays a central role in organizing the Gaza Flotilla, is a Turkish humanitarian relief fund with a radical Islamic anti-Western orientation. The president of IHH (Bulent Yildirim) recruited “Jihad warriors” and transferred firearms, and explosives to Al Qaeda and other Islamic terrorists organizations.
For some strange reason the state-run media forgot to mention this in their reports today?
Here is one video that shows the Gaza Flotilla activists chantingÂ “Kill the Jews”.Â ViaÂ Palestinian Media Watch>>
And,Â The Weekly Standard reported that the terror linked group transferred millions of dolllars to Hamas:
The Turkish nonprofit belongs to a Saudi-based umbrella organization known to finance terrorism called the Union of Good (Ittilaf al-Kheir in Arabic). Notably, the Union is chaired by Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, who is known best for his religious ruling that encourages suicide attacks against Israeli civilians. According to one report, Qardawi personally transferred millions of dollars to the Union in an effort to provide financial support to Hamas.
Don’t expect to see this in any of the Western media reports on the incident.

Turkey: Next Time Israel Will Have to Deal With our Navy!
As predicted Turkey has taken a turn for the worst, and is no true ally of non-Islamic countries. The relationship between Turkey and Israel has been deteriorating, with Turkey recentlyÂ telling Israel they have to give up their nukes. Now we see how they will stand with their Muslim brothers, no matter whatÂ the facts are. Non-Islamic countries need to start banding together, and face the harsh reality of the impending showdown with the Islamic world. A good start would be if Sweden stoppedÂ funding Turkey to the tune of 8.5 million euros a year. Since Muslims think that Islam is so great, let them fend for themselves. Loganswarning>>
