SHEIKH RAED SALAH: “The Freedom Flotilla is the first step of liberating the entire Palestinian land”

Sheikh Raed Salah — Palestinian, leader of the Islamic Movement in Palestine’48
(This face-to-face interview was conducted in Istanbul, Turkey, on 18 March 2011)      

“The conscience of international public opinion has already passed the test with success, but the official international conscience is still being tested. We are following carefully whether, this time, the official institutions will be on the side of humanity, or submit to the pressure of international Zionism.”

“If it had not been for Mr. Erdoğan’s brave stance, we would still be in prison. We probably would be sentenced for at least 10 to 20 years. However, thanks to the Turkish government’s stance, the Israeli authorities had to release us within the first 48 hours of our arrest.”

“Thanks to Israel’s arrogant and foolish behaviour, the message of the Mavi Marmara reached not only Gaza, but the entire world. All the conscientious people in the world heed this call. It has become one of the major causes of the Arab peoples’ revolutions in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Yemen.”
