SOLIDARITY WITH POLITICAL PRISONERS IN ISRAELI DUNGEONS – Demanding Immediate release of Samer Issawi

The Palestinian people have been victimized for far too long but the worst part of Israel’s brutal occupation is that the world has pointed their fingers at the Palestinian people for the past 65 years. Shaming the Palestinian people for their resistance instead of shaming Israel for its illegal occupation of Palestine. This past year Political prisoners in Israeli dungeons wrote history. Breaking history records of H-Block prisoners and Gandhi as they go on hunger strikes. Yet even when the Palestinians use means of “non-violent” and peaceful resistance they are not awarded the recognition they deserve.  The shocking violence against the dying handcuffed hunger striker amounts to torture and took place in court in front of the Israeli judge who took no action to protect the defenseless prisoner. These videos show Samer Issawi and his family being violently attacked by the Israeli prison officers while in Jerusalem’s Magistrate Court on Tuesday, December 18th: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmGjFn5RVF8 http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=S1wqiEOxHD8 “PHR-Israel condemns the violent treatment of hunger striker, Samer Issawi and his family members while in Jerusalem’s Magistrate Court on Tuesday, December 18th and calls for the immediate release of Samer” http://www.phr.org.il/default.asp?PageID=116&ItemID=1679  Samer Issawi’s hunger strike continues and his condition is deteriorating and is very severe. The International Committee of the Red Cross and prisoner support and human rights groups have been denied access to visit him. He is committed to continue his strike until freedom and has refused deportation.  A Doctor concluded his Medical Report: He has recently started suffering from severe pain especially in his muscles, abdomen and kidneys. He has an acute vitamin B-12 deficiency and his body has begun to eat his muscles and nerves. Also, his sight is weak, he is fainting around six times a day and his body is covered with bruises. Moreover, he is vomiting blood, his heart is weakening and he can barely breathe. He has begun to feel pains in his chest due to having been assaulted by Israeli police at his latest court hearing on December 18th. Until now, he has not had the necessary tests conducted on him after that attack against him and so far the hospital administration refused to test and X-rays his chest. His health continues to deteriorate and his body is eroding and he has lost sense of the extremities (the hands and feet) as well as in his lips and he has lost a great deal of hair,” said his mother, in evident distress.  “I will not withdraw from the battle for freedom”: The Story of Samer Issawi by Malaka Mohammed http://t.co/2vzrHdEu
