Sorry, once you start swinging weapons and grabbing the rifle’s of the soldiers, you’re no longer a peace activist. Had the flotilla passengers resisted non-violently, I might have sympathy. As the video plainly demonstrates though, the occupants of the flotilla did not engage in a water-borne sit-in. The truth is that those who were on the flotilla were emissaries of organizations that are offended at the very idea of a Jewish state, not because of political reasons, but for ethnic and religious ones.
Seeing as your criticism of Israel is considerably more vitriolic and knee jerk than your criticism of nations that are far more vicious to their domestic populations as well as to their neighbors, I have no choice but to question your motives. I have no choice but to wonder whether Israel’s existence as a “Jewish State” is what really upsets you as well. If it is, that’s fine, just stop pretending otherwise please.
Yes, I hear you when you say you’re simply “anti-Zionist”, but what do you really mean when you say you are anti-Zionist? I return to the immortal words of Martin Luther King who said, “Anti-Semitism, the hatred of the Jewish people, has been and remains a blot on the soul of mankind. In this we are in full agreement. So know also this: anti-Zionism is inherently anti-Semitic, and ever will be.”
Wake the hell up my libertarian friends. There is no brotherhood of freedom fighters to which you and those who fight for a “free Palestine” belong.
