New footage of the peaceful Mavi Marmara passengers of Flotilla

Or should I say "peaceful"?

The video shows Bulent Yildirim, leader of the IHH group which organized the aid flotilla to the Gaza Strip, speaking before the dozens of activists on board the ship. [I attached a picture of Yildirim during a meeting with Hamasnik Ismail Haniyeh, January 2010, Suz.]

"We don't want to be recorded in Allah's book as cowards," he said, encouraging the ship's passengers, "Those who stand against us are numerous. They are so weak that for four – five days they have been engaging in propaganda. They have been humiliated in front of the whole world."

"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 crowd, who responded by chanting "Allahu akbar".
At 2:08 you can see Mohamed Beltagy, a Muslim Brotherhood parliamentarian from Egypt:

Sheikh Raed Salah, head of the Islamic Movement's northern branch, can be seen sitting among the crowd in the front. [Archive picture:]
