Seven Democrat Congressmen Endorse Next Gaza Flotilla

The Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) has issued a Resolution in support of the second Gaza flotilla, which is scheduled for June 20th (originally October of 2010). Thanks to video cameras, the first flotilla - on Memorial Day weekend of 2010 - was proven to be an attack on Israel's sovereignty. Israeli soldiers had to kill nine in self-defense. Perhaps worse than the fact that one of the ships in the upcoming flotilla is named 'Audacity of Hope,' is that seven of PDA's members are members of congress.

Via Big Government, those seven members are (all Democrats):
John Conyers
Donna Edwards
Raul Grijalva
Barbara Lee
Jim McGovern
Lynn Woolsey
Dennis Kucinich
Here is the text of the Resolution that appears on PDA's website:
Resolution in Support of U.S. Aid Ship The Audacity of Hope
RESOLVED – We, the membership of Progressive Democrats of America, by democratic and representational vote, hereby affirm our support and endorsement of the U.S. aid ship The Audacity of Hope, due to set sail for Gaza in October of this year, as an expression of our insistence that Israel meet its obligation to recognize the Palestinian people’s inalienable right to self-determination and end its occupation and colonization of Palestinian lands. As peace and justice advocates, PDA considers it our obligation not only to criticize immoral and illegal acts, but to back up that criticism with action.
Check out the list of PDA's Board members in addition to seven sitting congressmen. It includes Code Pink founders, SDS founder Tom Hayden, and liberal talk show host Thom Hartmann.
