Obama’s Friends Join the New Gaza Flotilla

Ruth Gretzinger of Michigan kindly emailed to call my attention to the fact that I reported only half the story about the new Mavi Marmara. Here are some interesting points that she makes. A U.S. boat, The Audacity of Home, will join the Mavi Marmara flotilla. As Gretzinger notes, “Two of the valiant activists on board will be the president’s favorite domestic terrorists, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.” And Rashid Khalidi, a Columbia University professor and former PLO spokesman in Beirut who has also been President Obama’s mentor on the Arab-Israeli conflict, is directly involved in fundraising for the flotilla.

Again, the Los Angeles Times refuses to release a video of a speech Obama gave in honor of Khalidi. That’s too bad. Obama complains that his call to return to the 1949 Armistice lines has been misinterpreted. The tape which the Los Angeles Times doesn’t want us to see would go a long way to enabling us to understand Obama’s approach and certainly would achieve the goals of transparency which Obama has embraced, and fulfill the function of a newspaper which isn’t beholden to political bias.
