Israeli violence in international waters- recording

This is a link to a recording from the Greek ship 'sfendoni' which was among those in the freedom flotilla on their way to Gaza. There were many nationalities on board, not to mention the Israelis, so there is English spoken as well. This recording needs no explanation. It is witness enough.
