We; the wounded, veterans, families of martyrs and all the participants of the freedom flotilla find it necessary to share our thoughts about the recent claim that Zionist Israel and Turkey reached an agreement.

Israel's attack on the Mavi Marmara has left deep scars in all of our conscience. In all courses, it is recognized as a crime against humanity.

When the truth is this visible, and all negotiation talks have been disrupted by Zionist Israel's unfaithfulness till this day, an agreement to normalize ties between Turkey and Israel will harm in particular Turkish and Palestinian relations and then the entire Muslim geography.

As you already know their game, all Mavi Marmara passengers, the wounded and families of the martyrs have declared in their previous statements that their top priority is to remove the blockade on our Palestinian brothers, not the compensation which is to be paid nor anything else.

Within this scope;

1- In the Mavi Marmara case; as our respected President has said several times on different platforms the one who has suffered has the right to decide in the Mavi Marmara case. Any case and initiative that could mar the procedure is regarded as illegitimate by us, the victims. We declare that we will fight against any circumstance in which the case is dropped or any situation which is similar in this matter.

2- In the case to arrest four Zionist Israelis which has been open in the courts of the Republic of Turkey, we find malicious intentions behind waiting for about two years for this matter to be raised at Interpol.

3- Without falling into the trap of the word games about the lifting of the embargo and blockade on Palestine, this matter should be insisted on, and in any case which the embargo is lifted, we request that no other agreement should be reached.

As for the matter of compensation which has been talked about in the public agenda, the application does not cover the damages. The public is misinformed about this issue. Within the scope of the informed application, Israel was to establish a compensation fund for the relatives of the victims. We do not accept any form of money which is to come from Zionist Israel under such deceit. When taking similar incidents into consideration, the $20 million which is said to be given is in fact a comic figure. In all terms and conditions there will be a compensation and a price to be paid which will hurt Zionist Israel and protect the rights of the victims.

We do not accept any agreement which will hurt mankind in any way, the Mavi Marmara's freedom walk to Jerusalem and the overall best interests of the nations.

As victims, we declare that we will continue to fight in our legitimate struggle.
