Huwaida Arraf Admits Flotillas Were Never About Getting Humanitarian Aid to Gazans
During her speech, Arraf admitted to her audience of likeminded Israel-haters that the Gaza flotillas she helped organize were really never about humanitarian aid (as they had claimed at the time), but rather purely as a PR exercise. It is truly revolting to hear her speak of poverty in Gaza and the “desperate” need for humanitarian aid, and then her solution for this to be to essentially bring an empty ship only in order to demonize Israel.
Note how the goal of the flotilla was actually not to arrive at Gaza, yet Israel actually allowed them through the first time.
Later on, after speaking about how successful the flotillas were in changing public perception against Israel (even putting the US State Department in ‘crisis’), Arraf speaks of her goal to help change US policy. She then refers to special interests keeping the government and economy working for the ‘few and well connected.’
Of course, she’ll deny she meant you-know-who
but given her past antisemitic statements and association with Jew-haters, I would find that hard to believe.
