On the Free Gaza Facebook page, someone asked them a question:
I read on a blog that every week Israel supplies more goods to Gaza than the whole flotilla will bring.

They listed this site: http://www.mfa.gov.il/MFA/HumanitarianAid/Palestinians/Increased_humanitarian_aid_Gaza_after_IDF_operation_Jan_2009.htm

Is it true, or is it Israeli propaganda?
Greta Berlin, who cofounded Free Gaza, responded:
Israel sent in 550 trucks a WEEK into Gaza before the siege. They now send in maybe 50.
Well, today alone, Israel sent in 140 truckloads, and they have averaged over 500 trucks every week this year - showing that Greta Berlin is lying by an order of magnitude.

Her lies continue:
The Palestinians are perfectly capable of taking care of themselves and not being on the dole.
Really? So she would advocate the dismantling of UNRWA camps and the cessation of billions of dollars of international aid to prop up the PA? When in history, exactly, have Palestinian Arabs ever taken care of themselves as a people without outside help? When have their leaders ever shown the slightest ability of acting responsibly?

Her lies continue:
This is not about how many tons are shipped in. It's about occupation and starvation and slow motion genocide of 1.5 million Palestinians.
Gaza is not occupied by any reasonable meaning of the term. Occupation means that one nation's forces are on the ground controlling the day-to-day administration of mundane civil matters of another nation. A blockade does not fit the definition.

Not a single Gazan has been reported to have starved to death after years of the so-called "siege."

There are more Gazans alive today then there were yesterday, last week, or before Hamas' Operation Oil Stain began in December 2008. Using the word "genocide" to describe how Israel treats Palestinian Arabs is a grotesque lie.

Her lies continue:
Our initiative is not about how much we bring in, but what we bring in, supplies denied by Israel to the Palestinians.
Free Gaza is pushing to have people sponsor bags of cement - and Israel allowed more tons of cement into Gaza this week than the entire flotilla managed to get over the past four months. And Free Gaza's stated goal has never been about humanitarian aid but about "resistance."

That's a lot of lies in a small space. Unfortunately, the liars know that while it takes them seconds to come up with the lies, people who care about the truth must spend hours debunking them, so the liars have a distinct advantage.
