The War on Human Rights Groups

by New Profile Saturday, May. 10, 2003 at 2:30 PM

This is the beginning of the War on Human Rights Groups, perpetuated by the IDF and aimed in particular at those who wish to help Palestinians in the Occupied Territories and Gaza.

The ISM and Raproachement offices in Beit Sahour were raided today. Three women were taken into custody. Two internationals were arrested, both apparently American (one is Flo, the communications coordinator). A Palestinian is being held for questioning. The 2:00 and 3:00 PM radio news reported that the internationals were illegally here, but the ISM office confutes that. In addition to the arrests, 5 computers and 3 lap tops were confiscated.

This is the beginning of the War on Human Rights Groups, perpetuated by the IDF and aimed in particular at those who wish to help Palestinians in the Occupied Territories and Gaza.

At present, legal aid is being sought to try to release the women and to recoup the computers. Action beyond that is also needed. If the attack on the ISM and the document below that foreigners will from now on be forced to sign are allowed to succeed, then all other international human rights and anti occupation groups will soon follow, and after them, also Israeli ones. Black days are ahead if we do not act fast.

Here is the sequence:

Subject: [EMEM] New Israeli military declaration targets ISM -Singling out

ISRAELI MILITARY INTENSIFIES ASSAULT

ON INTERNATIONAL PEACE WORKERS

SINGLING OUT INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY MOVEMENT

As of Thursday, May 8, 2003, humanitarian organizations working within the Gaza Strip, Occupied Palestine began receiving a new declaration created by the Israeli military.

This document (included below) demands

signature of all international groups working within the Gaza Strip and any internationals attempting to enter the Gaza Strip. In addition to stipulations of not holding the Israeli Government responsible for the death of

internationals, the declaration specifically states that the individual signing can have no connection to the International Solidarity Movement(ISM).

The ISM, a Palestinian led non-violent group which attempts to provide protection to the Palestinian people and to enable them to non-violently resist the Israeli military occupation of Palestine, has recently come under attack from the Israeli Government and Army.



This attack, including the targeting of ISM volunteers that left one dead, one comatose and one severely injured, and now this new declaration, are all aimed at discrediting and inhibiting the peace work of the ISM.

Here is a copy of the declaration:
