They call themselves human rights activists, but they remain silent when it comes to Hamas’ deliberate targeting of Israeli civilians  and the brutalities of the Hamas regime in Gaza, which has crushed political opposition, suppressed independent media and  has locked up hundreds of political  opponents.

If they were really interested in the well being of the people of Gaza, they would have accepted the offers of Egypt or Israel to transfer humanitarian aid to the people  of Gaza, along with the other 15 thousand tons sent every week. Instead they have chosen a cheap political stunt.
