NEW YORK – Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor sent a letter to the Security Council and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon Wednesday to express concern over the impending flotilla, calling it a provocation that “holds the potential for dangerous consequences.”

Pointing out that there are established channels through which humanitarian assistance can go to the Gaza Strip, including through Israel, Prosor wrote that the flotilla is “clearly designed only to serve an extremist political agenda.”

Prosor also emphasized that many groups participating in this flotilla – such as the European Campaign to End the Siege on Gaza, the Free Gaza Movement, and the International Solidarity Movement –“maintain ties with extremist and terrorist organizations, including Hamas.”
