Panorama exhibited footage taken from the Mavi Marmara showing IHH head Bülent Yildirim saying the following:Naturally, the Beeb's rare honesty provoked ethics complaints from pro-Palestinian groups annoyed that the network was less anti-Israel than usual.We’re going to defeat the Israeli commandoes--we’re declaring it now. If you bring your soldiers here, we will throw you off the ship and you’ll be humiliated in front of the whole world.Corbin:You said that if they board the ship you would throw them into the sea. Isn’t that a provocation, saying that to your supporters on the ship?Yildirim:I spoke correctly there. I spoke beautifully. I watched it again afterwards. Israel stole these images from us, but we’re not denying it. If we organised another boat, and Israel attempted to illegally invade it, we’d use our right to passive resistance. We’d throw them into the sea.
