Another 9 hours before the Shit hits the Fan† or one week depending on which version of the Fraud Flotilla ocean theatre you believe.
My last week has been entirely devoted to combatting the Fraud Flotilla (AKA Flotilla II, the ‘Be Human’ Flotilla and the Green Flotilla). As a result this blog post has to be typed as I ride in a train to continue the effort! On the other hand I’ve been working with the LIKE for Israel (http://ProIsraeli.org) team and we have produced one of the best collections of information, photographs/cartoons, and videos for Israel activists and researchers. There is information about the groups and personalities behind the Flotilla that you won’t find elsewhere on the Internet and original artwork from Uri Fink. We need more. There is also some material in languages other than English. This is very much a work in progress and will continue after this current bunch of floating losers is forgotten.
EVERYTHING is copyright free and may be used however you wish to F*** the Flotilla‡.
What we have
- Website: ProIsraeli for LIKE for ISRAEL. (Everything can be accessed from the site).

How to take part
- Join on the site as a volunteer.
- Join the Facebook group and targeted groups and check for updates and action items.
- Come to the Situation Room, 1 Sokolov St., Herzliya, Israel. We are open from early until late and any time you have to spare is welcome. It may be crucial today.
- Share the videos, graphics, PDFs, links and text articles on your social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). One or two posts every three hours is fine.
- Search for strongly anti-Flotilla or ’embarrassing to the Flotilla’ material, send to us and share. Avoid duplication by checking out what is already online in your language.
- Look for strongly pro-Flotilla material in the mainstream media or neutral media and be the first to comment or respond. One position on the first page is worth ten on following pages so respond immediately.
- Let us know about site problems (broken links, etc.) firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Specific ideas? Telephone (972) 8 9471693 or email me.
LIKE for Israel is a continuing project. It doesn’t end just because the Fraud Flotilla is towed into Ashdod harbor.
† OK not the nicest language but it’s appropriate. I don’t have to be neutral to this bunch of wankers – it’s my blog!
‡ Not squeamish about obscenity that works to improve the sound of a quote. Just don’t want to be flagged by NetNanny’s and Search Engines set on suitable for nuns and small children. Delegitimise the Flotilla doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it?
