The flotilla and the peace process


Not surprisingly, AIPAC and J Street have had completely different responses to the flotilla raid off the coast of Gaza.

The first of three emails from AIPAC included:

Who is behind the Turkish-linked pro-HAMAS flotilla stunt off the coast of Gaza today? 

A TERRORIST-LINKED RADICAL ISLAMIC ORGANIZATION ID’d by the CIA as far back as 1996 with links to IRAN and AL-QAEDA.  THE CIA REPORT WHICH WAS DE-CLASSIFIED after 9/11 names this group - INTERNATIONAL HUMANITAIRE HILFSORGANIZATION (IHH) as part of 15 organizations that employed members or otherwise facilitate the activities of terrorist groups—INCLUDING AL Qaeda)

Below are the details on the CIA’s report, including an image of the report itself.

Following that is some additional information on the group’s links to HAMAS and the GLOBAL JIHADIST NETWORK of terrorist and radical Islamist, anti-American organizations

And from J Street’s president:

As one of our supporters wrote to me this morning, “how many more people need to die, how many more children deprived of a father or mother, before this conflict is settled and people can live in peace and security, while devoting their energy to building better lives?”

With details still emerging and propaganda spinning furiously on all sides - one simple truth stands clear to us: today’s events are the natural outgrowth of the larger, ongoing failure to resolve this conflict peacefully through a two-state solution.

It is up to our leaders to turn this crisis into a real push to end the conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians now - otherwise events will spin even further out of control. We will have more to say on how in the days ahead.

It seems safe to say that the flotilla incident will, at least in the short term, hamper any peace talks.
