#BDS: Protest the Hebron Fund this Tuesday as they head out to sea

This year’s Hebron Fund fundraiser has been organized as a Hudson River cruise and entitled the “Hebron Aid Flotilla” in an apparent attempt to mock the international Freedom Flotilla that sailed last spring to break the illegal Israeli blockade of Gaza. The Israeli military attacked the flotilla in international waters, shooting and killing nine passengers, including an American citizen, aboard a Turkish-flagged ship, the Mavi Marmara, and injured an additional 58 passengers.
The Hebron Fund announcement for the event states that “settlements are legal,” that “this administration may decide to fly in the face of US law and commitment,” and that “the tax deductible status of the meager donations to Hebron’s Jews comes under repeated scrutiny - for no good reason except for racism and Anti-Semitism.” Keynote speaker and former Netanyahu advisor Caroline Glick has written in the Jerusalem Post that President Obama is “treating Israel like an enemy.”
