Blurry Line CotD: "Pro-Zionist Atmosphere"

Here's another example of a post that continues to illustrate the blurry line between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism. We're primarily interested in the first paragraph.

Ignoring the baseless statement of Americans "waking up to the truth" (always a red flag that some extremist statement is about to follow), I have a question about why the story of "Ann Frank" [sic] would be considered a "pro-Zionist" story. There's nothing in the story of Anne Frank or about the Holocaust in general that specifically has to do with Israel. Now, there's no question the story of Anne Frank is pro-Jewish because it presents Jews as victims, and every Palestinian supporter on the planet knows how valuable being perceived as a victim can be. But I'm very confused as to why Anne Frank's story could be considered pro-Zionist.

Anyone have any ideas?
