Israel Targets Free Gaza Movement with Repulsive Propaganda

Campaign launched to malign facts surrounding the Murder of 9 activists.
Israeli Propaganda aimed at human rights activists

(MADISON, Wi.) - It is not enough that humanitarian activists on the Mavi Marmara were illegally boarded and attacked in international waters on a peace mission to Gaza.

Nor is it sufficient that nine peace activists on the Mavi Marmara were assassinated in cold blood by Israeli terrorist forces—Furkan Doğan, Necdet Yıldırım, Cevdet Kılıçlar, Ali Haydar Bengi, Cengiz Akyür, Fahri Yaldız, Cengiz Songür, Çetin Topçuloğlu and İbrahim Bilgen.

Now, Israel has launched a propaganda campaign targeting the return of the Mavi Marmara and Free Gaza Movement and is calling murdered victims: “Pirates”.

The Stand with Us propaganda site says the Israeli massacre on the Mediterranean Sea last May 31st was directed at “Pirates.” Incredible as it is revolting.

In the words of Dr. King: “I agree with Dante, that the hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in a period of moral crisis maintain their neutrality. There comes a time when silence becomes betrayal.”

Veterans Today stands with all the world-over who speak out against Israeli terror, human rights violations and vicious, utterly disingenuous propaganda. Long live Palestine. Long live the Free Gaza Momement.

Below are suggested propaganda posters from the Stand with Us propaganda site including calls to “investigate” freedom flotilla peace activists.

Pot, meet the kettle. This "article" is nothing more than anti-Semitic propaganda dressed up as false concern for "human rights." I personally think it is sickening that an educated person would back fundamentalist religious extremists simply to prove to the world that you hate a specific ethnic group. That is pathological and truly disturbing.

Editor: You, a person without the courage to even use your name?  You think Israel can murder because you have a God given right and your group are the religious extremist weirdos.  The Palestinians will have their land in the near future.
