Only anti-Israel activists would be blind to the glaring irony of Hamas condemning Greece for blocking the departure of the ridiculous “Freedom Flotilla II” from its ports. The supreme irony isn’t that these “peace activists” are in bed with Hamas, an internationally recognized terrorist organization that made suicide bombing a staple of Islamist terror; it’s that Hamas issued its communiqué from its headquarters in that Mecca of social justice and human rights, Damascus. Yes, Damascus the capital of the Allawite regime that has no problem shooting its own citizenry while it tortures children and arrests thousands for merely hinting at government reform. You have to wonder if the superannuated blockade runners even know that there are refugee camps in Turkey bursting at the seams with Syrians fleeing death and terror at the hands of their own government.
If anyone actually ever thought these naïve anti-Israel activists are anything but the authors of their own satire, surely the fact that their comrades in Damascus are calling Greece’s anti-flotilla measures “inhuman” would convince them otherwise. Of course the activist’s counter-argument is that they do not support terrorism but are only there to “help Palestinians”. I wonder how they feel about sharing their boats with Amin Abu Rashad, former head of a Hamas “charitable foundation” that was shut down following the Dutch authorities’ probe into its involvement in funding terror activities, or Mohammed Ahmed Hanon, a financier of Hamas’ Izz-al-Din-al-Qassam terrorist brigades.
