Look where ‘Audacity of Hope’ is stirring things up now

In a presage of trouble, a leader of a U.S. activist ship making its way to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip has a history of violent confrontation with Israeli forces as part of a group whose motto is “Getting in the Way.”

The ship is named “The Audacity of Hope,” the namesake of Obama’s 2006 book and his 2004 speech to the Democratic National Convention. Obama himself took the name from the title of a sermon, “Audacity to Hope,” given by his controversial pastor of more than 20 years, Jeremiah Wright.

Several of the ship’s endorsers and fundraisers have been close associates of Obama’s.
