The Flotilla Folk: Blinded by Hatred of Israel

(Jerusalem Post) Roz Rothstein and Roberta Seid - Almost 1,500 people from around the world planned to fly to Greece, board ships and sail to Gaza in July. The Flotilla Folk say they are just ordinary folk committed to human rights.

They think it is okay to ignore the fact that Hamas is an Iranian proxy, and that Hamas' founding document calls for the murder of Jews, the "obliteration" of Israel and its replacement with a fundamentalist theocracy that opposes all the freedoms and social justice values for which the Flotilla Folk claim to stand. Roz Rothstein is the co-founder and CEO of StandWithUs, and Roberta Seid is the director of education and research.
