Flotilla to provide aid for Gaza laden with supporters of terrorism and antisemites

Remember the 2024 “Freedom Flotilla” that was going to sail on the 26th of April to break the “Israeli siege of Gaza”? It got cancelled as Guinea-Bissau refused to let it use ships under their flag.

According to Turkish NGO Humanitarian Relief Foundation (known as IHH), which is the primary organiser of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition (FFC), it is comprised of human rights and peace activists. IHH was banned by Israel in 2008 and IHH Germany has been outlawed in Germany because of links to Hamas.

We looked at the organisers and participants, and we found that they don’t seem to be motivated by providing help to Gaza’s people, but by antisemitism. In this post we put a few of them under the spotlight.

He was one of the main organisers of the Mavi Marmara flotilla. Birawi admitted that the flotillas’ main objective is propaganda to defame Israel.
