Who is Behind the Second Gaza Flotilla? (JCPA)
Parting with the Gaza Flotilla
“Why I am not sailing aboard the Dutch ship after all”
A “pro-Palestinian activist” discovers that the point of the Gaza flotilla is not humanitarian aid after all, but aid for the Hamas jihad. Hasna El Maroudi was naive in the extreme if she ever thought that the flotilla was about “self-rule” for the Palestinians in some way distinguishable from the genocidal Islamic jihad against the Jews, but this article is nonetheless illuminating. Note especially, besides the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas ties, the repeated dishonesty of the flotilla organizers. Here is an English translation of “Afscheid van de Gaza-vloot,” by Hasna El Maroudi inÂ Joop, June 29 (thanks to JW):
Amin Abu Rashid is mentioned in one activist’sÂ explanation of why she opted not to participate in the flotilla. The depth of his role, and that of Hamas, is described below. Obviously, he’s not just there for moral support. “‘Hamas leader is brain behind Dutch flotilla’,” from theÂ Jerusalem Post, June 30 (thanks toÂ Weasel Zippers):
Hamas leader from Holland Amin Abu Rashid has been seen in recent days training with a Gaza-bound flotilla crew in Greece, according to a report by Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf on Thursday.
I blame da Jooozzzz…..
Rashid, described as the “brain” behind the flotilla, helped arrange the purchasing of the Dutch boat expected to be used in the expedition, De Telegraaf reported.
Rashid also allegedly organizedÂ the majority of the funding for the flotilla,the report said.
The participation of a Hamas member in the Gaza-bound flotilla proves that the flotilla does not have humanitarian intent, but is actually a provocation and a terror operation, Public Affairs and Diplomacy Minister Yuli Edelstein said in response to the report.
“The participation of Hamas member Amin Abu Rashid in the flotilla, who is known for fundraising money for Hamas terror operations, is clear proof that this is not a humanitarian flotilla, but a provocation and a terror operation in disguise of a flotilla,” Edelstein said.
“In the previous flotilla,Â Abu Rashid expressed his intentions to clash withIDFÂ soldiers and we must take into account that this will be his intention in the current flotilla. Israel is prepared for every scenario and the world’s countries must now reinforce the country seven-fold,” the minister added.
