Flotilla organizers acknowledge it's not about the aid


By GARY BAUMGARTEN
Yesterday we reported that the Greek government was offering to take the humanitarian aid on the so called Freedom Flotilla boats and deliver it through pre-established channels to the Gaza on their behalf. Thus accomplishing the flotilla’s goal of getting the aid to the Palestinians. While avoiding another, possibly deadly, confrontation with the IDF.
I suggested that, if the flotilla leaders decline the offer, it’s proof that they’re not really concerned about the Palestinians, but are just interested in embarrassing the Israelis.
I now find that, to my surprise, they actually agree with me.
The flotilla leadership is now acknowledging that this is not at all about getting help to the Palestinians of the Gaza, but more about makig a political statement
