Priceless: Jewish students sending 'flotilla of peace' to Turkey

In a bid to point out Turkish hypocrisy to the World, a group of Israeli students is organizing a 'flotilla of peace' that will sail to Turkey with aid for Armenians and Kurds.
The organizers are currently seeking a suitable vessel and trying to recruit other students to the cause. No date has yet been set, but a skipper has been found: Arik Ofir, a member of the navy veteran's union and owner of a private business. They have also obtained medical supplies, and hope that by the end of the week they will be able to set out.

"The whole world saw the flotilla and thought Israel is a terrible state, which comes to shoot people who call themselves peace activists," said Chairman of the National Students Union Boaz Torporovsky, who is also involved. "It's absurd that they always put the Israeli occupation in the headlines and don't talk about extreme Islamic terror. There's a lot of hypocrisy in the world.

"Turkey, which leads the campaign against Israel and makes all sorts of threats is the same Turkey that carried out a holocaust and murdered an entire nation of Armenians, and oppresses a minority larger than the Palestinians – the Kurds – who deserve a state, who have demanded a state for longer than the State of Israel has existed."

"For this reason," he continued, "we have decided to help that minority and show up the hypocrisy of the Turkish government. We are sure that they won't care if we sent humanitarian aid. It'll be a peace flotilla without the knives or stones that hurt IDF soldiers, without violence, which is intended for all those oppressed by the Turkish government.

"If (Prime Minister Recep Tayyip) Erdogan's heart is where his mouth is, which we all know isn't so, he has no reason to prevent the flotilla from arriving."

I'm just waiting to see what the Turkish Navy is going to do about it. Its time for Israelis to go over on the offensive.

cept that turkey, being the turkeys that they are, will probably sink your ship, and the world, being the turkeys that they are, will say NOTHING

I think this is a bad idea. Turkey will probably kill or capture them. There is no reason for Jews to martyr themselves for propaganda. There are too few Jews in the world for this to be an effective strategy.
