SHATHA BARAKAT BINT ABDULLATIF: “In less than just fifteen minutes, everywhere filled with the wounded”

Shatha Barakat Bint Abdullatif — Syrian, Arabic teacher and writer, institute director
(This face-to-face interview was conducted in Istanbul, Turkey, on 28 December 2010)

“While experiencing absolute freedom and love on the Freedom Flotilla, suddenly you become a captive! Neither food nor water was given. Even going to the bathroom and speaking was forbidden… I thought how the Palestinian sisters endure being held prisoners for so many years in Israeli jails!”

“A soldier stepped on a life jacket on the ship, and its luminous bands started to flash. They rushed downstairs yelling, ‘Bomb, bomb!’ While an officer at Ashdod was searching me, she pulled out a pen from my pocket and flung it, screaming as if she had found a bomb. Can you imagine how afraid they were?”
