"Gaza flotilla: Go back to Auschwitz"
Radio messages sent from the Turkish Gaza flotilla to the Navy contained chilling anti-Semitic abuse, the IDF revealed on Friday when it released audio recordings of communications with the vessels.
"You are approaching an area which is under a naval blockade," a Navy radio operator said in a message broadcast to six ships taking part in the flotilla as they sailed on the Mediterranean Sea towards Gaza.
"Shut up. Go back to Auschwitz," a male voice said in reply. The message was broadcast to the Navy from one of the flotilla ships, the IDF confirmed on Saturday.
"We're helping the Arabs go against the US, don't forget 9/11 guys", a man said later on during the radio exchange.
Meanwhile, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has released footage of statements made by Bulent Yildirim, head of the Turkish radical Islamist IHH organization, which organized last week's flotilla.
Yildirim, who delivered a fiery speech in Gaza in February 2009 filled with references to “martyrdom,” addressed his listeners as the “people of paradise.”
"Raise your fists to the skies and repeat after me: What can the enemy do to me? I carry paradise in my heart...If they kill me - that is martyrdom for the sake of Allah. Allah Akbar.
"Audio from Flotilla 'Activists': 'Shut Up and Go Back to Auschwitz"

"Oren: Turkey has embraced the leaders of Iran and Hamas"
“Turkey has embraced the leaders of Iran and Hamas, all of whom called for Israel’s destruction,” Ambassador Michael Oren declared.
“Our policy has not changed but Turkey’s policy has changed, very much, over the last few years,” he said. “Under a different government with an Islamic orientation, Turkey has turned away from the West.”
"White House Press Queen: 'Jews get out of Israel, go back to Poland'"
That is what Helen Thomas stated.
The Drudge Report as of this writing shows a picture of Thomas with President Obama’s arm around her in the White House press room, and the banner headline: "WH PRESS QUEEN: JEWS GET OUT OF ISRAEL, GO BACK TO POLAND!"
Longtime White House correspondent Helen Thomas is coming under fire after a video circulated widely on Friday of her saying that Jews should "get the hell out of Palestine" and go back to Poland and Germany.
The Hearst newspaper columnist made the comment during an interview with RabbiLive.com's Rabbi David Nesenoff at last week's Jewish Heritage Celebration at the White House.
“Remember these people are occupied and it’s their land,” Thomas says in the video. “It’s not German and it’s not Polish.”
Asked what Jews in Israel should do, Thomas says “go home.” Asked where that home is, she replies: “Poland. Germany. And America and everywhere else.”
The hatred against Israel grows daily, only now it isn't even being concealed. Its right out there, front and center.
The road to the tribulation continues to be paved.
