Yishai: Anti-Semitism being disguised as peace activism
April 17, 2012 13:19
Anti-semitism in the 21st century takes the form of provocateurs disguised as peace activists, said Interior Minister Eli Yishai at a cabinet meeting on Tuesday.
At the beginning of the meeting Yishai lashed out at the "flytilla" activists who arrived en masse at Ben Gurion airport earlier in the week, specifically referring to swastikas drawn by activists in a holding cell and at the airport.
"Drawings of swastikas left by activists who have flown, the hunger strikes of those that remain, along with the hunger striking Palestinian terrorists, are evidence of their hatred toward Israel dressed up as peace activism. Their concern for the future of the Palestinians in just an excuse to publicize their hared toward the Jewish people."
