US Jews comprise one-fourth of US Freedom Flotilla contingent
Jewish activists from the US, outraged at the siege of Gaza carried out by the Israeli government in their name, have been among the key organizers of the upcoming humanitarian aid flotilla to the Gaza Strip, and make up around 25% of the participants in the US contingent.
Hedy Hepstein, a Holocaust survivor and participant in the US delegation, urged the Israelis to “stay human” in their approach to the upcoming flotilla.
