Rivero prepared to sacrifice all of Europe now

Following the logic....

----> Greece is on precipice of financial disaster
----> A boycott threatens vulnerable Greek economy
----> a further crisis in Greece threatens the whole of the European economy (and the political project).

And Rivero's calling for actions with the hope of bringing it about! Because of Greece's actions re the flotilla? Great! Thanks Mr Rivero. That's really a cause Europe can get behind! Don't mind the rest of us actual Europeans.....what do we matter anyway, huh?

On the flotilla:
Public exposure of the connections of some of the flotilla’s organizers to Hamas also caused significant problems for its organizers. Just Journalism detailed the alleged Hamas connections of the European Campaign to End the Siege on Gaza official Mohammed Sawalha, and four Dutch journalists pulled out of the flotilla after having discovered the extent of involvement of the Hamas-linked activist Amin Abou Rashed in the organization of the Dutch-Italian boat. The journalists also complained of lack of transparency on the part of the flotilla organizers.
So, the IHH again, and Hamas-linked activists. Hmmmm.

The same source adds some significant tidbits that everyone will ignore:
The UN secretary general’s appeal to the governments of countries in the Mediterranean region to use their influence to discourage the flotilla and the announcement that the UN’s investigation into the previous flotilla has concluded that the naval blockade of Gaza is in keeping with international law......
In keeping with international law..........I haven't seen that reported anywhere. Well, except now, in passing.....

The Flotilla/IHH/MB/Hamas dude is Sawalha, apparently:
Sawalha is also a signatory of the infamous 2009 Istanbul Declaration, which explicitly calls for all crossings to Gaza to be opened so that Palestinians can gain access to weapons for use against ‘the Zionist enemy’:

‘The obligation of the Islamic Nation to open the crossings — all crossings — in and out of Palestine permanently, in order to allow access to all the needs of the Palestinians — money, clothing, food, medicine, weapons and other essentials, so that they are able to live and perform the jihad in the way of Allah Almighty. The closure of the crossings or the prevention of the entry of weapons through them should be regarded as high treason in the Islamic Nation, and clear support for the Zionist enemy.’


The participation of Hamas member Amin Abu Rashid in the flotilla, who is known for fundraising money for Hamas terror operations, is clear proof that this is not a humanitarian flotilla, but a provocation and a terror operation in disguise of a flotilla. In the previous flotilla, Abu Rashid expressed his intentions to clash with IDF soldiers and we must take into account that this will be his intention in the current flotilla
