Free Gaza ignores Viva Palestina

I find it interesting that the Free Gaza webpage is silent on George Galloway's Viva Palestina convoy that is now in Syria.

The group plans to sail to El Arish; Galloway is begging Egypt to allow the aid through, after Egypt banned the group's usual land convoys - and Galloway himself.

Yet Free Gaza, a group supposedly dedicated to helping Gazans, is silent!

The reason? Because Free Gaza is against humanitarian aid to Gaza. Their one and only goal is to allow Hamas to import whatever it feels like without restriction. The very thought that aid would be delivered through Egypt is anathema to the group.

Interestingly, however, Galloway is one of the people Free Gaza lists as an endorser of their organization.
