|AJC national radio message|
July 6, 2011 – New York
The AJC weekly radio messages are broadcast on the CBS radio network, before The Osgood File. All AJC radio commentaries since 2001 are available at www.ajc.org/radiocommentary.
The full text of this week’s commentary follows:
Two years ago, I was invited to blog for the Huffington Post.
I was honored. It's a major site with a large readership.
During the past two years, I've published nearly 50 articles.
And now, for the first time, one article was not published. HuffPo simply said "no."
It deals with the Gaza flotilla. It said that those supporting it were, deliberately or not, aiding Hamas.
After all, Gaza is run by Hamas, a terrorist group according to both the US and European Union.
Since aid is reaching Gaza via land from Egypt and Israel, the flotilla's purpose is transparently political, not humanitarian.
That's why the US, the UN Secretary General, and the EU's foreign policy chief have all opposed the flotilla.
But when it came to my article, HuffPo simply refused to publish it. Despite efforts, no explanation has been forthcoming.
But they can't stop you from reading it and deciding for yourself.
Visit ajc.org to read "The Hamas -- Oops, Gaza -- Flotilla."
This is David Harris of AJC.
