Former Weather Underground leaders William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, as well as Code Pink founder Jodie Evans, helped organize the Free Gaza Movement, which launched the six-ship flotilla from Turkey to Israel that ended in a violent clash with Israeli Defense Forces, BigGovernment.com reported.
In January, the trio were spotted in Egypt attempting to stir up crowds on the streets with 1,400 other left-wing activists after the Egyptian government refused to allow Free Gaza Movement members to enter the Gaza Strip. About 100 marchers were eventually allowed to cross the border, where they were met by former Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh.
BigGovernment quotes author Philip Weiss, who wrote that he witnessed Ayers and Dohrn arguing with fellow activists over whether to accept Egypt's offer to allow a small number of them into Gaza:
"Dohrn said that the principle of All or none' was a miserable one for activist politics. You always took what you could get and kept fighting for more. A European man in a red keffiyeh screamed at her that she was serving the fascisti. Her partner Bill Ayers gently confronted him and asked him why he was so out of control. Between getting on and off the bus, Dohrn, who wore a flower in her hair, said that she didn't like the absolutist certainty of the people on the other side of the police barricades, and having been in the Weather Underground, she knew something about absolutist feeling."
As political theater, an argument between the aging flower child/domestic terrorist and a fellow traveler over who knew more about "absolutist feelings" would be hard to top.

Can we all chip in and buy them a ticket on the next ship looking to run the blockade?
Its funny how they are not really willing to put themselves into harms way.
There’s conviction for ya...
They’re just a couple of people in the neighborhood.
It's time to impeach Obama. Biden is an idiot, but he can't be worse than Obama.
The LSM will not bring this to the dummasses. Therefore nada.
Gee whiz. Surprise, surprise, surprise.
And who came up with the name 'Flotilla'? Isn't that a Disney ride? I laugh every time I hear that word used for a boatload of Islamomanics and progressives.
The world has gone mad... but then again we have a President with the middle name Hussein...
All I want to know is, what the hell kind of humanitarian aid includes, bombs, ammo, bullet-resistant vests, night vision goggles, and a bunch of people without passports in international waters but they do have wills made out talking about jihad and being martyred?
This is NOT ‘humanitarian aid’ as anything we would recognize as such. It is arms smuggling under phony humanitarian aid cover.
They have BLOOD on their HANDS...BLOOD, and LOTS of it!!!
Somebody should start asking questions about who set this protest flotilla up. Was it Barry himself?
Jeez, if there is one thing I have learned about liberals it is that whatever they call something, it is usually exactly the opposite.
Aiding and abetting foreign terrorism is a crime.
This is one that needs to be shouted from the rooftops.
“I wonder if Obama knew this was his friends intent?? I wonder if he “suggested” they should run the blockade.Something to think about...”
Tinfoil or no, it doesn’t look good — the whole thing was a set up to pressure Israel.
