Press TV is an Iranian international news network, which broadcasts in English.

Highlight of the show – and get a load of that set:

Lauren Booth: “Israeli commandoes…committed a massacre of innocent civilians sailing aid ships to the besieged Gaza strip”.

Kevin Ovenden (Viva Palestina): “[Israel‟s] inhuman and illegal blockade of the people of Gaza…This was the use of lethal force for political ends”.

Bahjat El-Helou (Palestinian Independent Commission for Human Rights): “[Israel] is a state above the law”.

Yousef Al-Helou (Press TV correspondent): “Israel‟s piracy in the Mediterranean Sea ended with a massacre”.

Haidar Eid (Political analyst): “The martyrdom of the supporters of the Palestinian people on the freedom flotilla”.

Lauren Booth: “This was obviously a barbarous attack on civilians…One thing is certain: As Turkey buries its murdered citizens and in Britain we welcome home our brave and injured, the brave men and women on those ships, in one move, have shifted world opinion against Israeli apartheid”
