Free Gaza: Israelís Military Lies About Radio Transmissions

By Greta Berlin - Radio transmissions released by the Israeli military which allegedly document provocative and offensive remarks by Mavi Marmara crewmembers are fraudulent according to other members of the Freedom Flotilla.

Mavi Marmara was a Turkish ship among the Free Gaza aid Flotilla that was attacked on Monday by the Israeli military while sailing in international waters and heading to the besieged Gaza Strip. Nine people on board the Mavi Marmara were killed another 54 were injured in the Israeli attack.

Huwaida Arraf, who was on the Challenger 1, another ship in the convoy, has confirmed that her voice is featured in the recordings of what are said to be transmissions between the Mavi Maramara and the Israeli Navy. In this part of the recording, she can be heard saying, "we have permission from the Gaza Port Authority to enter."

Arraf claims that the presence of her voice in the alleged transmissions "proves that the audio has been edited by the Israeli military and sheds serious doubt on the authenticity of the audio material as a whole, as does the sound and voice quality of the other statements supposedly made by people on the Mavi Marmara."

All video and audio taken by journalists and passengers on the night of the flotilla raid has been confiscated by Israel, which is only releasing highly edited segments to the media.
