International Israel education organization StandWithUs has planned to surprise the "Free Gaza" flotilla activists this weekend with their own counter-flotilla off the Gaza coast, according to a press release the organization distributed Thursday.

“Our mission is education, and the anti-Israel flotilla has created an excellent educational opportunity. Our signs will expose how Hamas oppresses Palestinians, and has been the major enemy of peace," said Roz Rothstein, co-founder and CEO of StandWithUs.

“If the activists had done their homework instead of believing Hamas propaganda, they would also have found out that their assistance isn’t needed.  There is no humanitarian crisis in Gaza,” added Michael Dickson, Director of the StandWithUs Israel office.
