Jeffrey Goldberg writes about the anti-Semitism of the so-called Free Gaza movement which, last week, tweeted that Zionists created and operated the Nazi concentration camps.
What does this all mean? I’ve been asking for months why the international left hasn’t shown solidarity with the Syrian people — an estimated 30,000 of whom have been killed by the fascist Baath party — by launching a flotilla to Syria’s Mediterranean coastline. Gazans have a miserable life, but their suffering today pales in comparison to that of Syrians. So why don’t the people behind the Gaza flotillas organize a relief effort? The answer is simple: If the Syrians were being slaughtered by Israelis, they would.
