This article from Andrew Marcus in Big Government documents in fine detail the facts of the progressive jihad against Israel, naming names and organizations and linking such Democrats as Barack Obama, John Conyers, Maxine Waters and public figures like Alice Waters, Medea Benjamin, Bernardine Dohrn and Tom Hayden to a network of Islamic extremists:
The Gaza Flotilla incident, which would really be more aptly called the Hamas Flotilla incident, needs to be viewed from a wider perspective to be more fully understood and appreciated for what it represents - A Marxist-Progressive Jihad on Israel, and by proxy, the United States, wherein the American Progressive Left is engaged in an open and working relationship with Islamist radicals.
The Hamas Flotilla action was not an isolated event. It was but the latest in a carefully programmed series of actions that have been taking place since Hamas took over the Gaza Strip in a violent coup in 2007, designed by community organizations that have been operating in the region since at least the mid-1990s.
The umbrella organization of this recent series of actions is called the Free Gaza Movement, and represents several international organizations, as well as many prominent American Progressive organizations.
This is a superbly done piece of work and deserves the widest possible distribution.
