Freedom Flotilla II activists have completely rejected Greece’s offer to ship the flotilla’s humanitarian aid to Gaza through the Ashdod port in Israeli or El-Arish port in Egypt in full coordination with the United Nations.
 
Anger has prevailed among activists after learning that the offer was made after talks were held between Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and the Greek Foreign Minister, flotilla organizers told Safa news agency.
 
The activists have called Abbas’s stance a “stab in the back”, recalling the attitude he previously expressed regarding the Gaza aid ships, saying they are “a silly game,” and the participants “take permits from Israel before entering Gaza”.
 
Some ten ships were scheduled to join the flotilla and challenge Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip, but Greece placed a ban on the ships from leaving from its ports where they were docked.
 
Meanwhile, the organization of Palestinian scholars abroad has called on Muslims to boycott Greek products should the country continue the ban.
 
In a press statement, the body called for pressuring the Greek government into retracting the decision and taking to the streets and demonstrating at Greek embassies in Arab, Muslim, and European countries.
