US Flotilla to Gaza: The Audacity of Hype
The Washington Post (via Powerline) reports plans for another flotilla -- this one from the US. President Obama's friend, Professor Rashid Khalidi is raising money to buy a boat to be named "The Audacity of Hope."
Andy McCarthy wonders if the Obama administration will allow the endeavor:
The United States has neutrality laws against things like fitting, furnishing or arming vessels with the intent of committing hostile acts against a country with which the U.S. is at peace. (Challenging a blockade is a hostile act.) We also have laws against providing material support to terrorist organizations like Hamas. Will the Obama Justice Department pursue an investigation of Khalidi?
Memo to Khalidi: Rename the boat, "The Audacity of Shopping." Despite the evil blockade, Gazans managed to build and stock a sparkling new mall and provide needed employment opportunities.
