THE HAGUE (PIC) — The Palestinians in the Netherlands commemorated the 64th anniversary of the Nakba in a sit-in tent outside the Parliament in The Hague, highlighting the prisoners’ issue and their suffering in the Zionist occupation’s jails, celebrating simultaneously the victory of the prisoners, who finally achieved their humanitarian demands after striking for twenty-eight days.

Adnan Abu Adas, a member in the Board of Trustees at the Palestinian house, an assembly of Palestinian activists from all affiliations, said in a press release: “The Palestinians in the Netherlands who commemorated, on Tuesday, the Nakba anniversary were showing a strong determination to achieve their right to return to their home (from which they have been displaced sixty-four years ago), more than ever before.”

Abu Adass stressed on the need to start preparing for practical steps to achieve return, pointing out to the adherence of Palestinians in the Diaspora to their right and their readiness to sacrifice their life to regain it.

Abu Adas said that the sit-in tent, pitched outside the parliament in The Hague, was displaying pictures about the Nakba, the displacement of Palestinians and their strong adherence to their right to return to their villages destroyed by the occupier.

He also pointed out that during the event, many activities will be held to draw the attention of Parliament and the Dutch society to the suffering of the Palestinian people, particularly prisoners, under the occupation since more than six decades. The tent was displaying a model of solitary confinement in the occupation’s prisons and models of handcuffed Palestinian prisoners.

In addition, Abu Adas said that the activists in the event distributed leaflets, aiming at drawing the Parliament’s visitors and the MPs’ attention, stressing that the Dutch citizens, during their visit to the protest tent, were showing a great sympathy towards Palestinians.

It is noted that the Palestinian house assembly announced that, in cooperation with the Dutch Friendship society, the Palestinian community Association and the Palestinian Return Association, it will organize a conference to commemorate the anniversary of the Nakba and to highlight the Palestinian prisoners’ issue, on the nineteenth of May, with the participation Dries van Agt former PM of the Netherlands.

انّا للہ و انّا الیه راجعون

May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ ala grant the Shuhada Jannatul Firdaus, and ease it for their families, loved ones and anyone around them. Allahumma Ameen ya Rabbil Alameen. ‘ Inna Lillahi wa ‘ Inna ‘ Ilayhi Raji’un, Allahu Akbar


* The list of shuhada does not display, the numerous victims of the zionist occupation which are undocumented by media. Nor it displays the victims of the “silent onslaught” due to restrictions of movement, ability to go to hospitals for treatment or life saving surgery, due to lack of medication because of the blockades and so on. For example: The Slow Motion Genocide by the Siege on Gaza only, killed 600 patients since Gaza got under Israeli Siege.

Neither does this list, display the avoidable mortality. A clear and statistical factual evidence, about the number of deaths due to indecent ruling by occupation forces. For even an occupier has obligations under International Laws, Geneva Convention and the Hague regulations, which it is neglecting. These circumstances, together with deliberate policies of the occupier to neglect and even deny every basic human right, severes avoidable mortality which is totally silenced by media or reporting organisations. While in the Holocaust, 1 on 6 Jewish people directly died of deliberate neglect, so if we believe the facts over 1 million due to avoidable mortality, neither should these same circumstances be ignores which are ongoing in Palestine. For this report displays a avoidable morality of at least 0,5 million Palestinians.

How many more dead corpses of Palestinians does the international community need to see in order to act? How many more cruelties and violations of Human Rights, Regulations and International Law will be needed to intervene so this ongoing warcrime is being stopped once and for all.
