Of course: Useful idiots reject offer to send aid to Gaza

It was never about sending aid to Gaza. It was always about opening a shipping lane for weapons. And therefore, the useful idiots in the flotilla of fools have turned down a Greek offer to ship any humanitarian aid they might be carrying to Gaza.
Organizers of the flotilla seeking to break Israel’s blockade over the Gaza Strip on Sunday rejected an offer by Athens to allow Greek Navy ships to transfer the humanitarian aid they had planned to bring with them to Gaza on their behalf.


“It is possible that this is under consideration but... that is not considered breaking the siege,” said Ewa Jasiewicz, one of the leaders of the Free Gaza Movement, which is in charge of the flotilla. “We want to break the siege and the flotilla is not about expanding the drip of humanitarian aid to Gaza.”

Israel responded that the Greek proposition to transport the flotilla’s humanitarian aid to Gaza under UN supervision reasonable “as long as cargo is checked for any chance of weapons smuggling,” Army Radio reported Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor as saying on Sunday.

Palmor said Israel has no issue with transporting equipment or goods in the appropriate channels.
But don't expect this to be reported in the mainstream media outside of Israel.

Yup. It was never about humanitarian assistance to the Gazans. True human rights activists would have accepted the Greek offer.

That the Flotila Of Fools idiots summarily turned it down says it all.
