If you will it, it will be no publicity stunt

This year's Gaza flotilla and flytilla stunt have turned out a damp squib - but next year, they could inspire something completely different. Isaac Kohn has dreamed up a fantasy for turning the tables on the Arabs: you never know - it might happen. Read his piece in Israel National news:

To commemorate Israel’s Independence Day of May 2012, thousands of activists will board hundreds of airlines throughout Europe and fly into every Arab country from which the Jews were expelled since 1948. The mass fly-in will protest the expulsion of the Jews from Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Syria, Egypt, Algeria and Jordan.

Huge demonstrations are scheduled to be held in Damascus, Syria, in Cairo, Egypt and in Algiers, Algeria where rioting descendants and activists will violently demand that the expelled Jews and their descendants (estimated today at 5 million people) be allowed to return to their villages, farms, homes and land. Massive protests will also be scheduled to demand that the expropriation of the Jews’ properties and wealth be reversed and they be repaid fully, in today’s estimated monetary value.

Approximately four-hundred reporters, cameramen and other media personnel have already signed up to record the protests as they develop and broadcast it to the world. CBS, FOX Network, BBC, Al Jazeera and others are scrambling to have their reporters credentials accepted and verified by the host Arab countries so that not one reporter will be barred from any country he / she wishes to cover.

As a twin action designed to coincide with the massive flytilla, the organizers have been granted permission by Greece to have a two-hundred-ship flotilla which will set-sail from a number of its ports towards the ports of the above-mentioned Arab states.
