"You are approaching an area which is under a naval blockade," said the radio operator, to which one passenger on the ship replied, "Shut up, go back to Auschwitz."

Another voice then addressed the Navy, saying the ship had permission from the Gaza Port Authority to enter the blockaded area.

"We're helping Arabs go against the US," added another voice. "Don't forget 9/11, guys."
