The JPost reports that the the Shalit family asked today for assistance from the international left-wing activists.
If the left-wing activists pressure Hamas to allow international organizations to bring letters and food packages to Gilad Schalit, the kidnapped soldier's family has agreed to support the international expedition's attempt to dock, Army Radio reported Thursday.To the Israeli Leftists who support the Flotilla - now's your real chance to help Gilat Shalit.
Lawyer Nick Kaufman presented the offer to the organization "Free Gaza," one of the organizers of the flotilla headed for Gaza, which promptly refused the offer.
"We are disappointed that the organizers of the flotilla have refused to also provide basic humanitarian assistance to our son, who has been held in Gaza four years in contradiction of international law," said the Schalit family.
The IDF announced Wednesday evening that it was planning to stop the international convoy of nine ships currently on its way to Gaza carrying hundreds of activists and thousands of tons of supplies.
“If they decide to continue sailing and do not listen to the instructions, then they will be stopped, brought to Israel and dealt with by the Interior Ministry, which will return them to the countries they came from,” an IDF statement said.
According to the statement, the IDF will unload the supplies and transfer the shipment to the Gaza Strip, after inspecting it for weaponry.
If you seriously believe in Human rights, then you should demand that basic human rights are observed by Hamas, and that Gilad be able to receive letters, food packages, and even a visit from the International Red Cross.
That's the bare minimum. Anything less is pure hypocrisy.
The IDF would be more than glad to let your ships dock at Gaza...all you need to do is prove you really care about human rights, and you're not just aligning yourselves with Hamas to be anti-Israel.
