For those looking for a simple explanation of why the Gaza flotilla’s “humanitarian aid” efforts are a total sham, this video from the IDF is an excellent resource. As the video notes, the Israeli government sends an average of 6,000 tons of goods to the Gaza strip every single day — which is more than the entire flotilla attempted to bring to Gaza on its voyage last year. And most of the flotilla’s products consisted of expired medical supplies.
The IDF has traditionally done a very poor job of public relations, so it’s nice to see that it’s finally producing clear and compelling videos like this one. We can only hope this means that the government has been preparing itself for the PR war that’s sure to ensue once the next flotilla attempts to break the Israeli blockade.
