Krauthammer, as usual, over the top

The WaPo's/Fox News' Charles Krauthammer, as usual, pleading the case for poor little Israel - and, as usual, with nothing but scorn for international law and human-rights as they might apply to Arabs.  And as for those human-rights activists who were aboard the Turkish ship that tried to run the Israeli blockade of Gaza (and please, let's dispense with the nonsense: the vast majority of them were indeed human-rights activists willing to risk their lives on behalf of the people of Gaza) . . . well, according to CK, we should number them among the "terror sympathizers and useful idiots." 

But in the final paragraph, CK goes way over the top, throwing down the ultimate trump-card:
The world is tired of these troublesome Jews, 6 million -- that number again -- hard by the Mediterranean, refusing every invitation to national suicide. For which they are relentlessly demonized, ghettoized and constrained from defending themselves, even as the more committed anti-Zionists -- Iranian in particular -- openly prepare a more final solution.
All the guilt-button buzz words are there: six million, ghetto, troublesome Jews, Iranian, and final solution.  No mention, of course, of the Holocaust survivor who was among the activists. 

Could CK could ever admit even in the slightest the extent to which Israel's actions and policies since 1948 have been calculated to terrorize the Arabs - and the Palestinians in particular - into submission?  No, never.  It's high time that he point the terror sympathizer/useful idiot finger at himself.
