Pat Buchanan's Peaceful Gaza Flotilla Activists Tell Jewish Soldiers to "Go Back to Auschwitz"
The peaceful activists who attacked the Israeli soldiers with pipes, metal rods. chairs and knives as the troops boarded the Mavi Marmara also screamed at the Jewish soldiers to “Go Back to Aushwitz!”
YNet News reported:
The IDF released on Friday an audio reproduction of the moments before Monday’s raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.
In it, the soldiers can be heard warning the flotilla that its vessels are nearing an area under naval blockade. They are answered by calls of “Go back to Auschwitz” and “Don’t forget 9/11 guys”.
But that 2 a.m. boarding of an unarmed ship with an unarmed crew, carrying no munitions or weapons, 65 miles at sea, was an act of piracy. What the Israeli commandos got is what any armed hijacker should expect who tries to steal a car from a driver who keeps a tire iron under the front seat…
But we have a blockade of Gaza, say the Israelis, and this flotilla was a provocation. Indeed, it was. And Selma was a provocation. The marchers at Edmund Pettus Bridge were disobeying orders of the governor of Alabama and state police not to march.
Yet, today, liberal Democrats who regard Martin Luther King as a moral hero for championing nonviolent civil disobedience to protest injustice are cheering not the unarmed passengers trying to break the Gaza blockade, but the Israelis enforcing the blockade…
Israel has a right to secure Gaza to deny Hamas access to weapons, especially rockets that could reach Israel. But that does not justify denying 1.5 million people what they need to live in decency.
Can we call Pat Buchanan an anti-Semite now?
