The “peace activists” aboard one of the pro-Hamas flotilla ships early last Monday morning told a Navy dispatcher: “Shut up, Go Back to Auschwitz. We're helping Arabs go against the US, don't forget 9/11."
The remark concerning the September 11 Arab terrorist attacks on the United States that killed over 3000 civilians showed that the U.S.A. is also hated by the group,,but some analysts said it referred to the anti-Semitic blood libel charging that Israel was responsible for the terrorism.
The radio transmission by the Israeli Navy had warned the Gaza flotilla that they were approaching a naval blockade. The soldiers boarded the ships after they refused to redirect their course from Hamas-controlled Gaza.
Due to an open channel, the specific ship or ships in the "Freedom Flotilla" responding to the Israeli Navy could not be identified. The Mavi Mamara ship’s terror activists brutally assaulted Navy commandoes before the soldiers were able to defend themselves. The activists on the other five other vessels did not use violence against the Navy crews.
