Netanyahu to human rights activists: Sail to Tehran, not Gaza

Just weeks after Western nations slam Iran over their human rights record, Israel’s prime minister tells activists to focus their energies — and flotillas — there:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday called on human rights activists who participate in Gaza-bound flotillas to sail to Tehran instead, where he says real human rights violations exist.

“I call on all human rights activists in the world – go to Tehran, that’s where there is a human rights violation,” said Netanyahu during his meeting with the Austrian Chancellor, Werner Faymann, in which he discussed Israel’s ease of the Gaza blockade and flotillas planning on breaching Israel’s Gaza blockade.

“Today, after we lifted the civilian blockade of Gaza there is no reason or justification for further flotillas,” he said. “These flotillas are organized by those who oppose peace, not those who support it. These people just want to break the security blockade.”

    I agree with PM Natanyahu that if the human rights activisits would go to where there are real human rights violations they could find them in Tehran. Leave Israel alone and let them have what they desire, peace with everyone.

Rabbi's Commentary
God Is Present This Holy Season

Even as efforts for peace seem to be at an impasse all around the world, the Passover story can give us hope and affirmation that God is always present in our lives, and even when situations seem impossible, He is working in ways we cannot imagine.
