“Molkho’s” Visit to Occupied Ramallah in Light of the Prisoners Strike

May,13,2012
Occupied Ramallah- Local and international news agencies informed us last night, 12 May, that the Palestinian political establishment met with the representative of the Israeli apartheid regime, Isaac Molkho, in Ramallah to deliver the latter’s response to a previous letter that was sent by the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) on 17 April. 
This visit coincides with the ongoing open-ended hunger strike waged by Palestinian political prisoners in Israeli prisons for 27 consecutive days, in a crucial and strategic battle in which the role of the prisoners’ movement in the Palestinian national struggle is restored.  This movement is raising fair demands to guarantee the treatment of political prisoners and detainees according to international humanitarian law, especially the Third and Fourth Geneva Conventions.
Rather than boycott and isolate the Israeli apartheid regime for their unrelenting crimes against our people, and foremost against our prisoners, the Palestinian political establishment decided to receive and honor the representative of the Israeli apartheid regime, the same regime our prisoners are fighting against, as if the  crimes committed against our prisoners are perpetrated by someone else.
Our political prisoners are waging an immense battle on their own, because they have no illusions that the “peace process” can set them free or guarantee their dignity. They are armed only with their willpower and unity. Neither we nor they expected the PLO to choose Palestinian Prisoners Day, 17 April, which also coincided with the day of the beginning of the hunger strike, to deliver a letter to the Israeli prime minister nor to receive a representative of the apartheid regime. 
Molkho’s “visit” comes at a time when, Bilal Diab and Thaer Halahleh, have gone for 76 days without food in protest of the Israeli administrative detention policy.  Additionally, Hasan Al-Safadi has gone without food for 70 days, Omar Abu Shallal for 68 days, Mahmoud Al-Sarsak for 56 days, Mohammad Taj for 57 days, Jafar Ezzedine for 53 days, and Abdullah Al-Barghouthi for 32 days. 
Our political prisoners have struggled for our dignity and have sacrificed their lives to make the PLO the sole representative of the Palestinian people, and they deserve that we stand honorably to support them.   
Therefore, we demand that the PLO:

          ·         Stop all negotiations and meetings with the Israeli apartheid regime.
·         Use its political, economical and moral weight in support of the prisoners’    strike and formulate a national strategy to liberate the prisoners.
·         Respect and protect, at the next PLO Executive Committee, the free will of our political prisoners and the sovereignty of the prisoners’ movement in its decisions.

  1. Why ur not mentioning the source which you have copied this article from??!!! or this way you will look smarter?

    your English is as good as my Chinese.. so no way in hell the above article was written by you… it seems that every jobless loser/poser is a radical writer and a freelance artist of some sort.. and you don’t have the talent nor the artistic taste… get a life man.

    • first, its not an article, its a statement made by a group of youth in Ramallah to protest Mlokho visit to the PA headquarter, and if u look below u can see the group name. its signed. I did them a favor and published it! so, congratulation, u caught me!
      I am aware about my bad spelling and terrible grammar, I am still working on it! its not my first language anyway!
      I am not a writer, nor i am an artist, I never claimed such thing! I just have a blog to bitch.
      I do work, I actually have 2 jobs. 🙂
      I do have a life, well, at least I have enough life to keep me from wondering around wordpress insulting ppl I know nothing about!
      finally, thank you, I appreciate what u did for me, u made me look smarter, by making a douche bag of yourself, again I appreciate this 🙂

  2. Thx for the reply.. i was browsing through the net for that particular article.. and i sent you that comment coz u made it harder for me to find the real article coz i need to use it and i have to mention the credits and the source of the original article.. which i couldn’t find on this blog!!

    and just to clear out the confusion… blogger = writer… and if you are not mentioning the sources then by default this means that these are your words.

    its really frustrating nowadays to support the Palestinian cause.. due to fake posers who don’t add shit to the struggle by copy-pasting worthless shit.. just to join the cult and the activism hype!! got it? :d
