In a Knesset discussion on the conclusions of the Turkel Commission Wednesday, MK Taleb a-Sanaa told the plenum that "nobody was surprised by the Turkel decisions," adding, "Is someone ready to accept this?"
Noting that there were people from 37 different countries on the Mavi Marmara, including members of parliament from various countries, Sanaa said, "They thought, what could happen? And to say that nine people were killed and there is nothing wrong with that? To say that there was no crime and no criminal?" The UAL-Ta'al MK concluded, "The thing speaks for itself. The shooting, the spilling of the blood..." before being cut off.
