CBG spokesperson Wendy Goldsmith said she wouldn’t comment directly on the lawsuit because she hasn’t seen it yet, but she is adamant that her organization is not supporting Hamas.
“This is a civilian-to-civilian initiative. We’re not working with any government in either country,” she said. “We’re part of the international flotilla, which is a group of 32 different countries, and each of us have various connections with non-governmental organizations, artists, co-ops who are trying to make a living in Gaza, so those will be the recipients of the aid that comes on the boats. We’ve asked independent international bodies to inspect our ships at the point of departure, during our voyage, and once we arrive in Gaza to ensure that we’re not carrying anything that is illegal or harmful. We’re committed to non-violence.”Does she really believe that as long as Hamas isn't involved in any official capacity it isn't being aided, abetted, validated and propped up by boaters' antics?
I guess they don't call 'em useful idiots for nada.
Update: Wendy Goldsmith, rabble chick, says "We Are All Gaza."
Speak for yourself, sweetie.
