Letter from Samer Issawi, Palestinian prisoner on hunger strike close to death (211 days without food)

[here in Palestine, we had regular vigils, demonstrations, and confrontations with the occupiers to de mand the release of Samer and other prisoners of conscience unjustly held by the occupiers.  Samer and others were released as part of an exchange of prisoners and tehn Israel rearrested or kidnapped them under the unlawful system of "administrative detention" without charge or trial. Samer's brother Shadi was also arrested on Sunday in a way to pressure Samer and the family.  Please do write to officials in your country asking that they demand Israel comply with its own prisoner agreements and with international humanitarian laws].

Action: Open Shuhada street campaign 25 February

The Center for Constitutional Rights, in collaboration with the National Lawyers Guild and others, is organizing the Palestine Solidarity Legal Support initiative in order to protect and advance the constitutional rights of Palestinian rights activists across the U.S.

A new genetic study of the European (Ashkenazi) Jews and Middle Eastern and European populations shows again that the Zionist idea of Jewish dispersal and return to Palestine is false.  Most of the genetic affiliation of European Jews falls squarely in clusters of other Europeans with very limited Middle Eastern input.  By contrast Iranian, Iraqi and even Azerbeijan Jews are Middle Eastern (by and l;arge).  See figures in the original paper titled “The Missing Link of Jewish European Ancestry: Contrasting the Rhineland and the Khazarian Hypotheses” by John Hopkins scientist Eran Israeli-Elhaik
