Ynet learns commander of Israeli Navy during Operation Cast Lead and raid on Gaza-bound Marmara ship held for questioning upon arrival in UK.
Maj.-Gen. (res.) Eli Marom, who served as the commander of the Israeli Navy during Operation Cast Lead and during the raid on the Gaza-bound Mavi Marmara vessel, was held for questioning at around noon Monday at London’s Heathrow Airport upon his arrival in Britain, Ynet has learned.
Marom was held for a short time, during which he phoned the Justice Ministry in Israel.
The threat of being arrested in Europe has concerned senior Israeli military officers and politicians for a number of years now in light of lawsuits filed by pro-Palestinian organizations, although in most cases, at least in Britain, the measures taken against Israeli officials have been largely symbolic.
When I read this, I am reminded about Hitler mke a laughing stock of the European nations in 1939. He would let all the Jews leave Germany, if any nation, including America was willing to open their borders and let them in.
No European nation was a single minute, more Jew-friendly than Nazi-Germany.
The MS St. Louis was a German ocean liner most notable for a single voyage in 1939, in which her captain, Gustav Schröder, tried to find homes for 937 German Jewish refugees after they were denied entry to Cuba, the United States and Canada, until finally accepted to various countries of Europe. Historians have estimated that, after their return to Europe, approximately a quarter of the ship’s passengers died in concentration camps.
Today, The Arab League has replaced Hitler. The Islamic forces makes the European nations a laughing stock, “detaining” Jews at their airports, as demanded by Arab dictatorships.
Sham, sham, eternal shame, for all Europeans who support this evil. If there was any dignity and life left in the United Kingdom, this Israeli commander should have received a red carpet welcome.
