Flytilla activists scrawl swastika at Isr

Flytilla activists scrawl swastika at Israel airport

The so-called "peace" activists who attempted to infiltrate Israel via Ben Gurion Airport on Sunday would likely identify with those of Israel's most emphatic critics who insist that despite their disdain for the Jewish state, they are not anti-Semitic.

But more often than not, the behavior of these individuals betrays their true disposition. That is what happened on Monday, when it was discovered that at least one of the flytilla activists who was detained at Ben Gurion had scrawled a Nazi swastika on the wall of a holding facility.

The enormously offensive and anti-Semitic graffiti was found by Israeli Immigration Authority officials following the deportation of two foreign activists, citizens of Spain and France, respectively.

"This was the gift the 'peace activists' left Israel," one Immigration Authority official told theYnet news portal.

A total of 79 foreign activists managed to reach Israel this week. Most were detained at the airport, handed a wry letter of "welcome" by Israel's Foreign Ministry [], and then deported to their home countries. Hundreds more activists were planning to invade Israel, but were thwarted when the airlines suddenly cancelled their tickets.

Swastika drawn by “Flytilla” activist entering Israel

Posted: April 16, 2012

Nazi Flag

An activist who attempted to enter Israel as part of the pro-Palestinian “Flytilla” was found drawing a Nazi symbol on the wall of his holding cell while awaiting deportation, a spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office announced this evening.

A picture of the swastika, scrawled on the wall of the cell, which held several members of the attempted fly-in protest, was emailed to members of the press with a note explaining that the symbol of the genocidal German regime was drawn on Israeli soil only three days before the Jewish state’s Holocaust memorial day, commemorating the destruction of European Jewry.

Israeli government spokespeople and Zionist activists have noted the Swastika as proof that the protesters were less interested in supporting Palestinians as expressing what they alleged is anti-Semitism.

The “Flytilla,” a term coined to remind watchers of the 2010 Gaza flotilla, which ended in bloodshed as Turkish activists and Israeli commandos came to blows, resulting in the deaths of several activists. Israel subsequently released footage of these activists attempting to lynch several of the soldiers.

All members of the flytilla were detained pending return to their countries of origin and Israel has thanked several European states and airlines for preventing yet more activists from boarding flights.

Though it has not yet been proven, some Israelis suspect that the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), a pro-Palestinian group with ties to both terror groups and the 2010 flotilla, may have been involved with planning the recent fly-in.

Both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas are known for their use of anti-Semitic educational materials in their schools, including the glorification of the Nazis and Adolf Hitler.

A letter distributed by the Israeli government to the fly-in protesters thanked the new arrivals for their choice of destination, noting that they “could have chosen to protest the Syrian regime’s daily savagery against its own people, which has claimed thousands of lives” or “protest Hamas rule in Gaza, where terror organizations commit a double war crime by firing rockets at civilians and hiding behind civilians.”

Instead, Israel’s government noted sarcastically, the activists “chose to protest against Israel, the Middle East’s sole democracy, where women are equal, the press criticizes the government, human rights organizations can operate freely, religious freedom is protected for all and minorities do not live in fear.”

While history and current events proves that the "Unholy Alliance" of Leftists & Jihadis are knowingly reversing the affiliation to smear democratic Israel!

Just as during the days of the old Left's Stalin-Hitler Pact, the new Left is dutifully covering up for their ally.

And the American liberal Jew is still behind the demonRATs, the party that has thrown them to the wolves, time and again.

I cannot understand the liberal American Jew.

I have several life long Jewish friends, and all are pro-Israel, own guns and vote pubbie {of course if they weren't, they wouldn't be my life long friends}.

They all are observant Jews and most liberal Jews are like the Catholics that go to Church twice a year {Christmas and Easter} and pick and choose which of the Commandments they will abide by.

If you’re going to be a committed Nazi, the least you can do is learn how to draw a Swastika right.

There’s still that myth that the DEMs are more tolerant than others... Based on this. It’s origin is ‘good’ but the direction is misguided, twisted and off track. Fortunaelty conservative Jews are -recently- more and more pro REP.
