Speech of Sheikh Raed Salah to the Israeli Government commenting on Israel's Attack on Freedom Flotilla 2010.

Sheikh Raed Salah , Arabic: الشيخ رائد صلاح‎ , is the leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel. First known among Arab citizens of Israel as a poet and father of eight children, Salah also served as the mayor of Umm al-Fahm - an Israeli-Arab city bordering the Green Line - in the 1990s.[1] His popularity increased after his arrest by Israeli authorities in 2003 on allegations of funding Hamas.


Involvement with 2010 Gaza flotilla

Early Palestinian news reports indicated that Salah was critically injured by a gunshot wound to the head when Israeli commandoes raided a flotilla of six boats carrying 10,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid bound for the Gaza Strip. However, Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs dismissed the reports as "rumors" and claimed that Salah was not seriously hurt, but suffered minor injuries. He was removed from the ship and taken to Ashdod, and questioned. Salah along with the head of the Islamic Movement's southern branch, Hamad Abu Daa'bas, was relocated to the Ela Prison in Beersheba to await a court hearing in Ashkelon on their involvment with the flotilla. He was released to house arrest, on NIS 150,000 bail, and temporarily barred from leaving Israel.
