Standing Up to the Enemy... Again

(BETHLEHEM) - My Associate, Mazin Qumsiyeh, had his day in court today….. again….

Just days before his appearance he called the ongoing harassment of himself and other activists a blatant attempt by Israeli authorities to stifle dissent, and to silence those who would dare to speak out publicly against Israeli policies in the West Bank.

The Occupied West Bank is a hotbed of criminal activity. The Israeli government along with the illegal settlers commit crimes against the Palestinians on a daily basis, ranging from murder to land theft. These crimes continue non stop….. BUT, Mazin Qumsiyeh is the one treated as a criminal. WHY?…. simply because He writes about these crimes, lectures about them, and participates in protests against them. THAT, the Israeli government sees as a crime! He IS guilty of one thing … fighting for Human Rights…. his own in particular!

I just got off the phone with him a few minutes ago. He told me that after waiting for two and a half hours to be interrogated by 'Intelligence’ Officers, he was told to come back tomorrow. Not one question was asked of him. It is obviously an organised, government sponsored ploy to harass him, nothing more, nothing less.

I will report again tomorrow with an update on the situation, as Mazin himself always says, "the struggle continues"!

In the meantime, there are things you can do to help Mazin and the many others in his situation. Click HERE to see what.
