When will I get my documents and my confiscated property back?
How would you feel if you’d been kidnapped, assaulted and robbed?
I was kneed in the thigh and bruised when I was removed from the Tahrir by force. I didn’t get any names or badges, it was dark. What I need is our boat to be returned, can you arrange that?
The Canadian Boat to Gaza, this is a matter of public record, you can find us on the internet. Can I have my Canadian consular representative present for this interview? (Ehab and I had met with the vice-consult shortly before).
Also a matter of public record: London, Ontario, Canada.We were told we would get our electronic equipment returned before we board our flight out of Israel.
That is public information, you can find it on our website and in our press releases. Do you need help with finding information on the internet too? I thought Israelis were supposed to be good with technology.
You have my passport (he is holding it, I point and he opens it). There is a departure stamp in it: see, the port of Fethiye, November 4.
This information is also in my passport: see, an entry stamp on October 29. Can I have my passport back now?
I stayed at a hotel between the airport where I landed and the port of Fethiye.
It’s maybe 45 minutes or an hour’s drive.
I shared a taxi with some others delegates, and some of the journalists.
We shared a taxi to split the cost. People were responsible for getting themselves there.
They didn’t need a lot of organizing, mostly. Different people contacted different journalists and media outlets.
We don’t try to control what journalists say or write, unlike you. We just let them do their jobs.
I laugh out loud.
Did I say something funny?
If you think I know about computers, your sources are even less reliable than I thought.
But someone must’ve been responsible for setting up the communications systems.
Different people did different tasks. We work as a team. Can I go now?
At this point, yes. I will have a better idea when I see the media back home.
As I told one of your colleagues the other day, there are a lot of things we aren`t going to agree about.
You do not look as old as the age shown in your passport.
(For that I had a variant of the same answer as earlier):
Solidarity keeps us young, you guys should try it.
For which he had clearly prepared a (somewhat menacing) response:
Maybe it would be safer for you to try something less dangerous to keep young, like sports perhaps.
Maybe one day there will be peace between our countries and you can visit Israel under different circumstances.
I hope one day to visit a free Palestine.
