An Open Letter to Alice Walker and Her Fellow Flotilla Travelers

Richard L. Cravatts, director of the Communications Management Program at Simmons College, writing for RightSideNews:
. . . Your own obsession with the human rights and aspirations of the Palestinian people, and your comment that you seek “justice and respect” for Palestinian children alone, indicates that you and your fellow flotilla activists have already decided which children are deserving and which are not.
