Free Gaza flotilla contained wannabe martyrs says Yemeni professor in Gaza

By Kay B. Day

[Map from US Dept. of State]Once the Free Gaza group decided to send aid ships to Gaza, I figured it would lead to a lose-lose situation for Israel. Despite an abundance of coverage in print and on the Web, little attention has been given to the group that started the whole affair. In my opinion the flotilla was nothing more than a Trojan horse designed to appear as a gift to Gaza, but in reality the so-called ‘aid convoy’ was an act of provocation designed to further marginalize Israel.

House ethics officials have called for disclosure of costs associated with Minnesota Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison's religious pilgrimage to Saudia Arabia last year. Originally, Ellison – who is the United States' first Muslim congressman – opted not to announce the cost of the trip, which had a price tag of $13,350. More disturbing than Ellison's lack of transparency is the fact that The Star-Tribune (Minn.) said the Muslim American Society of Minnesota  (MAS) paid the $13,350 bill for Ellison’s two-week visit to Mecca.

‘Dignity’ damaged en route to Gaza—mission of mercy or politics?

Former congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (photo from US Congress Bioguide).As usual, media is dogging the latest conflict between Israelis and Palestinians, with American media doing its best to highlight Israel’s role and refrain from telling the whole story. The latest sound bite of the week stems from efforts by former congresswoman Cynthia McKinney (D-Ga.) and some like-minded activists who decided to take relief supplies directly to the center of the battle. McKinney and company sailed on the Gibraltar-based ‘Dignity, ‘ described by various media as a pleasure boat.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said, “The boat, which set off from Cyprus Monday wanted to make a statement and deliver medical supplies to embattled Gaza.” Predictably, the Israeli military wasn't happy to see the Dignity.
