A record 220 Swiss NGOs support the Gaza flotilla

Swiss NGO, the Red Cross, hasn't been incapable, in five long years, of doing anything about Gilad Shalit - not event to obtain evidence that he is still alive, but 220 Swiss NGOs are busy supporting the anti-Israel flotilla.

"In Switzerland, more than 200 NGOs are supporting the flotilla. It is being coordinated by a Geneva-based group called Droit pour Tous (Right for All), which in March 2011 sponsored ‘The First International Conference on the Rights of Palestinian Prisoners and Detainees.” Three members of the Swiss National Council, the lower house of the Swiss parliament, want to sail with the flotilla.
If Gaza has become an obsession for many ordinary Europeans, so too for Europe’s political class, which rarely misses an opportunity to rebuke Israel for a blockade the latter says is necessary to prevent weapons for reaching Iran-backed Hamas militants."
