Alleges that Gaza flotilla organizers Free Gaza and Insan Hak ve Hurriyetleri ve Insani Yardim Vakfi (IHH) had terrorist ties, that five passengers of the Mavi Marmara had known links to Hamas and al-Qa’ida, that flotilla organizers had announced weeks in advance that they would resist Israeli forces, and that Israel soldiers found caches of weapons on board the Mavi Marmara.

Would state that the House of Representatives stands by Israel for its actions against the Gaza flotilla, place blame with the Free Gaza movement for the subsequent deaths of nine members of the flotilla, and affirm that the U.S. shall consider all further attempts to break the blockade of Gaza illegal and a threat to international peace.
