Commission publishes articles of the agreement to end hunger strike

Ashkelon Agreement

Prisoners and Ex-Prisoners Affairs Commission published on Monday the most important humanitarian demands agreed upon during the negotiations between the leadership of the Palestinian prisoners movement and the Israel Prison Service (IPS).

Under the agreement, which was called “Ashkelon Agreement”, the prisoners announced the suspension of their 41-day hunger strike.

The agreement includes allowing regular family visits, improving the conditions of these visits, lifting the security ban imposed on thousands of prisoners’ relatives and the unjustified ban on more than 140 children who have never been allowed by the IPS to visit their parents.

As for female prisoners, it was agreed to gather them in Sharon prison, provide them with handicraft tools, set a special system for their transfer to and from courts, and bring female guards to search them instead of males.

The prisoners demanded improving conditions related to detention, education and transfer especially for children.

They asked for a radical change to be made in the prison’s canteen that involves the quality and price of the products available and for modern sports equipment to be provided in the prison yard.

They also required solving the problem of overcrowding in the prisoners’ cells, equipping prisons with cooling systems and providing a fully equipped ambulance especially in the prisons that are far from hospitals.

The prisoners asked to be transferred to prisons close to their families’ places of residence and demanded the IPS to stop its night raids and searches conducted into the prisoners’ cells by the so-called Metzada units.

Returning the prisoners who were transferred in the beginning of the hunger strike to the prisons from which they were transferred and lifting the sanctions imposed on them were among the top demands.

In addition to the previous demands, further mechanisms were put in place to continue the dialogue on issues that received initial positive responses and others that received negative ones through a joint committee that will begin its work immediately after the strike ends.

Seif Meets Dutch Envoy to Syrian Opposition, Urges Support for Basic Services Projects

President of the Syrian Coalition Riad Seif met with Netherlands Special Envoy for Syria Gerard Steeghs and political advisor Renko Verheij to discuss the latest political and field developments in Syria in Istanbul on Monday.

Seif said that despite the scarcity of resources, the Syrian Interim Government (SIG) succeeded to achieve several successes with regards to the provision of essential service to the population in the liberated areas. He called upon the Netherlands to support SIG projects in view of the systematic destruction of vital civilian infrastructure by the Assad regime.

“We look forward to the support of the Dutch government for projects in the liberated areas aimed at alleviating the suffering of the Syrian people,” Seif told his guests.

With regards to the Astana meetings, Seif stressed the Coalition’s rejection of giving Iran any role in the agreements reached during the meetings in the Kazakh capital. He emphasized that the Astana track cannot replace the Geneva process.

“We are concerned that the latest agreement in Astana is designed to establish separated cantons paving the way for the division of Syria,” Seif said.

The meeting was attended by members of the Coalition’s political committee Ahmed Sayed Yusuf and Yasser Farhan. The meeting focused on the need to step up services to the population in the liberated areas as participants stressed the need to preserve Syria’s territorial integrity and restore security and stability.

Egypt blocks financial newspaper website, widening media blackout

Egypt has blocked the website of one of its most prominent financial newspapers, the paper’s owner said on Sunday, expanding a media blackout initiated last week to curb what authorities called support for terrorism and fake news.

Egypt blocked access to a number of news websites including Al-Jazeera and Huffington Post Arabic on Wednesday after similar actions by its Gulf allies Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

The censorship of Al-Borsa, a widely read financial newspaper that generally steers clear of politics and reflects the views of a largely pro-state business community, suggests a more expansive attempt to control private media coverage.

The website of Al-Boursa’s sister publication, the English-language Daily News Egypt, was also blocked, a statement by parent company Business News said.

Al-Boursa and Daily News Egypt newspapers express their strong condemnation for the ongoing government campaign to restrict them

Egypt last month declared a three-month state of emergency after two suicide bombings at Coptic churches killed more than 45. In an address ushering in a new era of martial law just after the attacks, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi warned the press to be careful in its reporting.

Security sources told Reuters last week that 21 websites had been blocked for allegedly being affiliated with the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood or being funded by Qatar.

Business News said the decision to block its sites came as a surprise because they were not among the 21 blocked last week.

The company had its assets frozen last December for alleged ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, a charge it denies.

“We point out that all information on our company, its shareholders, financial statements and contracts are available to all relevant government entities,” the company said in a statement on Sunday.

Websites such as Mada Masr, an Egyptian news website that describes itself as progressive and has no Islamist or Qatari affiliations, were also blocked last week.

Chairman of regional council: Gaza siege threatens our security

Farjun siege Gaza

Ashkelon Regional Council Chairman Yair Farjun warned of the consequences of the deterioration of the living conditions in the besieged Gaza Strip. The siege affects the security of settlements in the vicinity of the Gaza Strip, he opined.

In a press article in Yedioth Ahronoth Hebrew newspaper, Farjun opined that preventing a humanitarian disaster in Gaza is an Israeli interest in the first place. He called on the Israeli government to work on putting an end to the aggravating suffering in the besieged coastal enclave.

“Even though the siege prevents Hamas of entering weapons and rockets into Gaza, Israel has to maintain its security in the surrounding settlements by facilitating the entry of people’s humanitarian needs”, he said.

He believed that allowing basic humanitarian requirements to enter the blockaded coastal enclave might prevent the escalation of security conditions and reduce the risks coming from Gaza.

The facilitation needed includes the entry of goods and medications into Gaza as well as maintaining basic humanitarian standards of living conditions in Gaza, Farjun clarified.

Trump’s visit to Israel: How Palestine disappeared from US media coverage

Trump and Palestine

By: Ramzy Baroud
As if he has, overnight, been transformed into a master politician, Donald Trump’s 27-hour trip to Israel has left many analysts mystified.
Quoting former Israeli political adviser Mitchell Barack The New York Times referred to Trump as the “Liberace of world leaders,” in reference to flamboyant piano player Wladziu Valantino Liberace. The latter, known as “Mr. Showmanship,” was, at times, the highest paid entertainer in the world and his successful career lasted over four decades.
New York Magazine Online quoted former US ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro too, trying to decipher the supposedly complicated persona of Trump.
“Either Trump’s visit was substance-free — or he ‘is being uncharacteristically subtle’ in planting the seeds for new round of peace negotiations,” NYmag quoted and paraphrased Shapiro’s tweets.
“Liberal” US media, which has stooped to many lows in its attacks on Trump — including his family, his mannerism, his choice of words, even mere body language — became much more sober and quite respectful in the way they attempted to analyze his short trip to Israel, and the very brief detour to Bethlehem, where he met with Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas.
“Mr. Trump’s speech at the Israeli Museum was so friendly and considerate of Israeli emotions,” The New York Times reported, “that one right-wing Israeli legislator described it as deeply expressive of the ‘Zionist narrative.’”
Palestinian emotions, however, were of no consequence, neither to the Trump entourage, nor, of course, to The New York Times or others in mainstream media.
The Washington Post, on the other hand, still found faults, but certainly not because of Trump’s lack of balance and his failure to deride the Israeli occupation and Israel’s mistreatment of Palestinians.
Despite the fact that Trump has, indeed, fully embraced a “Zionist narrative,” and a right-wing version of it (for example, he made no reference to a Palestinian state), he still fell short. His performance at Israel’s national Holocaust Memorial (Yad Vashem) did not impress.
Max Bearak wrote in the Post: “Trump’s entry in the guest book at Israel’s National Holocaust Memorial was strangely upbeat, self-referential and written in his signature all caps: ‘IT IS A GREAT HONOR TO BE HERE WITH ALL OF MY FRIENDS — SO AMAZING & WILL NEVER FORGET!’”
Bearak found such choice of words and the style in which it was written sort of offensive, especially if compared with the supposed thoughtfulness of former President Barack Obama.
In contrast, Obama wrote a significantly longer note, which partly read: “At a time of great peril and promise, war and strife, we are blessed to have such a powerful reminder of man’s potential for great evil, but also our capacity to rise up from tragedy and remake our world.”
Neither then, nor now, did the Washington Post bother to examine the historical context in which this particular sentence was written and find the hypocrisy of the whole endeavor.
If they bothered to ask Palestinians, they would have found a whole different interpretation of Obama’s words.
Indeed, wherever occupied Palestinians look, they find “man’s potential for great evil”: a 400-mile Israeli wall being mostly built over their land; hundreds of military checkpoints dotting their landscape; a suffocating military occupation, controlling every aspect of their lives. They see the holiest of their cities, Bethlehem and al-Quds — occupied East Jerusalem — subdued by a massive military force; thousands of their leaders thrown into prison, many without charge or trial. They see siege; an endless war; daily deaths and senseless destruction.
But since none of this matters to the “Zionist narrative,” it subsequently matters so very little to mainstream American media, as well.
Trump’s trip to Israel, however short, was, indeed, a master stroke by the ever-unpredictable Liberace of world politics, although, it takes no particular genius to figure out why.
From an American mainstream media perspective, to be judged “presidential” enough, all US presidents would have to commit to three main policies. They are, in no particular order: privileging the economic business elites, enacting war at will, and unconditionally supporting Israel.
So far, US media, which has been otherwise polarized based on political allegiances, has taken a break from its raging conflict over Trump’s presidency, and rallied behind him on two separate occasions: when he randomly bombed Syria, and during his visit to Israel.
Ironically, the man has been often judged for lacking substance on numerous occasions in the past. In fact, his trip to Israel was the most lacking and most divisive. However, the fact that he, time and again, reiterated Israeli priorities was all that the media needed to give the man a chance. Their collective verdict seems to rebrand his lack of substance as his unique “subtle” way of making politics.
Israeli media, which is often more critical of the Israeli government than US media ever dare, needed to keep up with its “democratic” tradition. But Trump’s groveling also gave them little room for criticism. The often-impulsive Trump, this time stuck to the script and followed his repeatedly rehearsed speech and media comments to the letter.
But Josefin Dolsten insisted on finding a way to nitpick, composing for the Times of Israel the “7 awkward moments from Trump’s Israel trip.” One of these awkward moments, Dolsten wrote was “a White House statement listing Trump’s goals for the trip included a hilarious (and juicy!) typo: ‘Promote the possibility of lasting peach’ between Israel and the Palestinians. Yes, we get it — it meant to say peace, but who’s to say the two sides can’t bond over some delicious fruit?”
For Palestinians, it must not be easy to find the humor in these tough times. Hundreds of their prisoners, including their most popular leader, Marwan Barghouti, were enduring a prolonged and life-threatening hunger strike in which they were making the most basic demands for better treatment, longer visitation hours with their families, and an end to arbitrary detentions.
More telling, on the day Trump, along with right-wing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, lectured Palestinians on peace, 17-year-old Tuqua Hammad was shot for allegedly throwing stones at Israeli military vehicles at the entrance of her village of Silwad, near Ramallah.
Tuqua “was shot in the lower extremities and Israeli troops prevented a Palestinian ambulance from accessing the victim to treat her,” Ma’an news agency reported.
Merely a few miles away, Trump was writing his remarks after visiting Israel’s Holocaust Museum. Regrettably, he failed to meet the expectations of the Washington Post, for unlike Obama, he was not poignant enough in his language and style.
The irony of the whole story is inescapable; but American media cannot see this, for it, too, seems to follow a script, in which Palestinian rights, dignity and freedom are hardly never mentioned.

Prisoner continues hunger strike in PA jail as release order is refused

Hamza Zablah in PA jail

Hamza Zablah, on hunger strike in PA jail since May 23, 2017

By: Lily Leach

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Palestinian authorities have continued to detain six men in a Hebron jail as of Monday, despite an order being issued mandating their release, as one of the detainees has been on hunger strike for six consecutive days in protest of his arrest.

Hamza Zablah, a former prisoner from Hebron in the southern occupied West Bank, declared his hunger strike an hour after he was detained by the Palestinian Authority (PA)’s preventive security service last Tuesday, Palestinian outlet Shehab news agency reported at the time.Zablah’s wife Dania Qawasmeh said Wednesday night on Facebook, as her husband entered the second day of his hunger strike, that he had been “kidnapped” by the “so-called preventative security services” after he was summoned to appear for questioning, with Qawasmeh writing in the post: “No to political detentions. No to security coordination.”
A statement on Hamas’ official website published Sunday morning said that Zablah, who Hamas referred to as a “political prisoner,” remained on hunger strike in a Hebron jail.
A representative of Palestinian prisoners’ rights group Addameer told Ma’an on Monday afternoon that an initial investigation conducted into the case revealed that Zablah was one of six Palestinians held in the Hebron jail, and that release orders issued for each of them had not been implemented by authorities.
Ma’an was not able to confirm the political affiliation of Zablah or his fellow detainees. However, Hamas has repeatedly accused the PA of escalating security collaboration with Israel through politicallymotivated arrests, by “adopting a revolving door policy” of funneling Palestinians from PA jails into Israeli prisons.

While the details of the case remained unclear, Addameer noted that the public prosecution was usually the body responsible for appealing release orders and postponing their implementation.Addameer said that it was conducting further investigations into the case of Zablah and his fellow detainees, in order to reveal the details and demands of his hunger strike.The launch of Zablah’s hunger strike coincided with the culmination of a mass 40-day hunger strike staged by Palestinians in Israeli prisons.

Last year, six Palestinians held by the PA launched a hunger strike between Aug. 28 and Sept. 6 in protest of their unlawful detention. The case sparked widespread outrage against the PA’s security coordination with Israel, particularly after one of the hunger strikers Basel al-Araj was killed by Israeli forces after he was released from PA prison.
Meanwhile, Hamas also reported Sunday that PA forces arrested five Hamas supporters during West Bank raids the previous night, saying that the detainees had all formerly been imprisoned by Israel.
The report also noted that as of Sunday morning, Omar Shakhshir, a student at al-Najah National University, had been held in PA custody for 34 days; another student identified as Abd al-Rahman Wadi had been held for 13 days; Mustafa Darwish had been held for the past 33 days; Nasr Bitawi for five days; Ahmad Awwad for 11 days; while PA security in Tulkarem had continued to detain Khadouri University engineering student Yahya Sawi for the 12th consecutive day; and security forces in Ramallah continued to detain two Birzeit University students — Muhammad Saqer for the eighthconsecutive day and Ahmad Nirat for sixth.

Fadwa Barghouthi confirms halt of mass hunger strike after misleading reports

Marwan Barghouthi

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — After reports emerged early Monday morning that leader of a mass hunger strike Marwan Barghouthi was still refusing meals in Israeli prison two days after the strike ended, the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners’ Affairs and Barghouthi’s wife Fadwa denied the reports and confirmed that the hunger strike had indeed been fully suspended.

Al Jazeera news network reported in Arabic early Monday morning, quoting a joint statement purportedly issued by the same Palestinian Authority (PA)-run committee and local NGO the Palestinian Prisoner’s Society (PPS), that Marwan Barghouthi refused to suspend his hunger strike until he was returned to Hadarim prison and could confirm that all hunger-striking prisoners who were transferred since the beginning of the strike were also returned to their original locations.
The report implied that as of Monday morning, Barghouthi had not given up his strike.
However, Marwan’s wife Fadwa Barghouthi explained that Al Jazeera’s report was misleading, explaining that “the leader of hunger strike should be the last to end hunger strike after he makes sure everything is alright with all other hunger strikers,” and confirmed that her husband had been moved back to Hadarim prison after the agreement was reached.
On the first day of the hunger strike, Barghouthi had been taken to a solitary confinement cell in al-Jalama prison, and finally to Ashkelon to take part in the final negotiations.
Commenting on the information in Al Jazeera’s report, Fadwa said, “This was a procedural issue and should not be interpreted that Marwan remained on hunger strike.”
Fadwa added that “so far, I haven’t been allowed to visit Marwan, and the Israeli Prison Service stipulates that his lawyer must obtain a permission from the judicial adviser of the Israeli government in order to visit him.”
Her comments were corroborated by director of the Bethlehem office of the prisoners’ committee Munqith Abu Atwan, who told Ma’an that Barghouthi refused to eat before he made sure that hunger-striking prisoners were returned to their original locations.
“Barghouthi headed negotiations that led to the decision to end hunger strike, but he notified the Prisoners’ Affairs Committee that he would not eat until all other hunger strikers were safe and sound and that they all started to eat first, to ensure that the Israel Prison Service would not impose any punishments on the prisoners,” he said.
The committee previously reported that the hunger strike’s conclusion came after 20 hours of negotiations with the Israel Prison Service (IPS), which saw 80 percent of the strike’s demands met by IPS.
Head of the committee Issa Qaraqe formally announced the results of the hunger strike in a news conference in Ramallah city on Monday, in the presence of the head of PPS Qaddura Fares and the head of the Higher Follow Up Committee for Prisoners’ Affairs Amin Shoman.
However, an IPS spokesperson has denied the committee’s narrative to Ma’an, and said that the only outcome of the strike was the restoration of family visitation sessions for prisoners to two times a month, resulting from an agreement made between the PA and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), in which the PA would fund the second visit, which was formerly facilitated by the ICRC until the international organization suspended it last year.
It should be noted that PPS said back in August 2016 that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had already approved a decision to cover all financial expenses for the second visitation.
Since the strike’s suspension, the only statement apparently released from the prison leadership, apart from updates from Barghouthi being conveyed by the PA and his family, came from imprisoned Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) Secretary-General Ahmad Saadat, who had joined the strike on its 17th day.
Saadat issued a cautious congratulation to hungers strikers on Sunday for their apparent victory, in the absence of an official statement from the strike’s leadership, as reports regarding the outcome of the strike had so far only emerged from the PA-run committee and IPS.
“While it is too early to provide a final assessment of the achievements of the strike before the official statement of the strike leadership, we can say clearly that the inability of the occupation to break the strike or contain it is a victory for the prisoners and for their will and determination to continue the confrontation,” he wrote in a statement from Israel’s Ramon prison, published Sunday by Palestinian prisoners solidarity network Samidoun.
Saadat highlighted that “the confrontation does not end with the strike; Instead, it must continue in order to strengthen the achievements of the strike, expand them and build on them.”

Zo eindig je de vastende dag!

De sunnah is om het vasten direct te verbreken zodra de zon is ondergegaan en de tijd van het magreb-gebed is binnengetreden. De profeet vrede zij met hem zei:

“Het gaat goed met de mensen zolang zij haast maken bij het verbreken van het vasten.” [Bukhari]

Die goedheid is er omdat zij de sunnah van hun profeet vrede zij met hem volgen door het vasten direct te verbreken. 

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor sunnah

Dadels
Een andere sunnah is om het vasten te verbreken met dadels en als die niet aanwezig zijn, dan met water:

Anas, metgezel van de profeet, overlevert dat de profeet vrede zij met hem zijn vasten verbrak vóór dat hij magreb bad met rotab (dadels die nog wat rauw zijn). Als die er niet waren dan met gewone dadels, en als die er niet waren, nam hij wat slokjes water. [Abu Dawoed]

Het is ook veel beter voor de maag om met dadels te beginnen, te rusten en dan later verder te gaan met ander eten.

Vreugde
In een authentieke overlevering zegt de profeet vrede zij met hem:

“Voor de vastende zijn er twee vreugdes; een vreugde wanneer hij zijn vasten verbreekt en een vreugde wanneer hij zijn Heer ontmoet.” [Bukhari]

De eerste vreugde is omdat de vastende blij is dat hij de vastende dag heeft afgerond en weer mag eten. De tweede vreugde is wanneer hij zijn Heer ontmoet en ziet wat zijn beloning is. Moge Allah ons die tweede vreugde schenken net zoals Hij ons de eerste vreugde schenkt.

Een ander gegeven wat de gelovige verheuging brengt, is dat Allah met elke iftaar gelovigen van het Vuur bevrijdt (iftaar is de maaltijd waarmee het vasten wordt verbroken). De profeet vrede zij met hem zei:

“Allah bevrijdt ten tijde van elke iftaar (gelovigen van het Vuur). [ibn Maajah]

Degene die Allah van het Vuur bevrijdt, zal dit nooit betreden. Moge Allah ons tot één van hen doen behoren.

Anderen voorzien van iftaar
Ook is het sterk aanbevolen om de vastende te voorzien van eten waarmee hij zijn vasten verbreekt. De profeet vrede zij met hem zei:

Wie een vastende te eten geeft, hem komt dezelfde beloning toe als deze vastende (die te eten is gegeven) … [Tirmidhi]

Ontneem jezelf deze grote beloning niet door jouw huisdeur gesloten te houden voor familie, vrienden en met name: onze bekeerde broeders en zusters. Dit is de maand van vrijgevigheid en samenhorigheid!

Beste broeders en zusters

Gedenk wanneer je het vasten verbreekt en jij het water door je aderen voelt stromen, Allah’s gunst op jou. Een glas water dat totaal geen waarde heeft in onze ogen, maar in werkelijkheid heel veel waard is.

De bekende kalief Haaroen ar-Rachied stond aan het hoofd van het islamitische kalifaat eeuwen geleden. Zijn heerschappij reikte van het westen tot het oosten.

Op een dag was deze machtige en rijke kalief omringd door geleerden, en hij hield ervan om geadviseerd te worden.

De kalief had een glas water in zijn hand en net toen hij wilde drinken, zei een van de geleerden tegen hem:

“Momentje O leider der gelovigen, stel dat u hevige dorst heeft en dit glas water u wordt ontnomen, met hoeveel van uw bezittingen zou u het glas water kopen?”

Na even nadenken antwoordde de kalief: “Met de helft van al mijn bezittingen.”

Hierop zei de geleerde: “Gaat u gang”, waarop de kalief het glas leegdronk.

Vervolgens vroeg de geleerde: “Stel dat dit glas water wat u heeft gedronken uw lichaam niet wil verlaten, hoeveel van uw heerschappij en bezittingen zou u afstaan om dit water er weer uit te krijgen?”

Na even nadenken antwoordde hij: “Met al mijn bezittingen.”

Hierop zei de geleerde: “O leider der gelovigen, uw gehele rijkdom is niet meer waard dan een glas water!”

Hierop moest de kalief huilen.

Ten tijde van de iftaar nemen we plaats aan een tafel bedekt met al datgene wat ons hart begeert. Dat glas water zien we niet eens staan. Zo gaan we om met de meeste gunsten van Allah. We genieten ervan zonder stil te staan bij Degene die ons ervan voorziet, laat staan dat we Hem dankbaar zijn.

Al gelijk na het nuttigen van een uitgebreide iftaar zijn velen van onze broeders en zusters Allah ondankbaar en ongehoorzaam door het magreb-gebed te verzuimen.

Weet dat er een dag zal komen waarop we zullen worden gevraagd over de genietingen en of wij Allah daar dankbaar voor waren. Allah zegt:

“Jullie zullen die dag (Dag des Oordeels) ondervraagd worden over de genietingen.” [102:8]
