In an interview for Jerusalem Post, the Freedom Flotilla III passenger and Ship to Gaza spokesperson Dror Feiler tells about the aim of the flotilla and the attempt to break the Israeli blockade on Gaza. Dror is born and raised in Israel and he has also served in the Israeli army.

"The siege hurts Israel. The siege hurts the Palestinians. We are doing this also for the people that live in Israel. They deserve a better future than the future that this government and this policy is promising them because [...] this government is leading the Israeli people into the abyss.”

Feiler warned that he would not hesitate to file lawsuits in the event that soldiers board the Ship to Gaza trawler ship Marianne of Gothenburg.

“If the soldiers try to attack us, we will get their names and have them arrested,” he said. “I think they should think twice and tell their officers that they refuse to be war criminals.”
