The Raam-Ta'al MK, Taleb A-Sanaa called Defense Minister Ehud Barak the "pirate in chief," in regards to today's IDF raids on the Gaza-bound flotillas.

Earlier on Monday, A-Sanaa said that the Israeli media is "toeing an official line, the activists posed no threat to Israel which has weapons that threaten the whole of the Middle East".

In an interview with Channel 2 al Sana accused the army of lying about the incident: "Military reports are lies to cover up the tragedy."
