Ynetnews reports reports that Israel’s Foreign Ministry has released an illuminating new video filmed on board the Mavi Marmara before the IDF’s interception of the ship. The footage was found among the possessions of one of the flotilla’s passengers and shows Bulent Yildirim, leader of the IHH group that organized the flotilla to the Gaza Strip, speaking to the passengers on board.
Islam seems to have something to do with the mission to break Israel’s blockade of Gaza. “We don’t want to be recorded in Allah’s book as cowards,” Yildirim said. “Now they are saying that they will launch a fleet against us. That they will send the commandos here. And we say, ‘If you send the commandos, we will throw you down from here and you will be humiliated in front of the whole world’,” he told the assembled passengers, who responded by chanting “Allahu akbar.”
Ynetnews adds that another speaker told those present in Arabic: “Don’t be like the ones who turned back and don’t turn back.” An Egyptian parliament member then shouted to the crowd: “Millions of martyrs marching to Gaza,” and the crowd echoed his words. Hamas supporter Raed Salah, head of the Islamic Movement’s northern branch, can be seen sitting among the crowd.
The Mavi Marmara was no ship of fools. Those on board knew exactly what they were doing. The fools are on dry land, reaching right to the top of the Obama administration.
