Also seen in these newly released videos:
Another speaker told those present in Arabic, "Don't be like the ones who turned back and don't turn back." Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the Islamic Movement's northern branch can be seen sitting among the crowd.Salah is a piece of work and has ties to Hamas.
The "peace activists" also chanted we will throw them into the sea. For those who haven't followed Middle East history since 1947- that's the same line that the Arabs have chanted every time they call for Israel's destruction. Throw the Jews into the sea. Eliminate Israel.
That's what this is about. It isn't about humanitarian aid - it's about undermining Israel's right to exist.
Also, the person leading the chant "Martyrs marching into Gaza by the millions" was apparently an Egyptian parliamentarian. That's someone who is a part of the Egyptian government that signed a peace deal with Israel in 1979 and which specifically refused to take Gaza in the peace treaty along with Sinai.
Yeah, what a lovely bunch.
In other words, these were anything but peace activists in the true sense of the word peace, but were instigators and using the rhetoric of violence and incitement to again call for Israel's destruction.
That you have media outlets continuing to claim that these were peace activists is a clear distortion of reality as they were nothing of the sort.
