Note from occpal: Previously by Israel released prisoners received a Presidential Pardon of Peres. Also called Amnesty or Clemency by law to restore ones civil rights and being totally pardoned for the (alleged) crimes if even in the case of Palestinians’ ever charged before at all. Re-arresting pardoned prisoners without any charge is a severe violation of human rights.

GAZA, (PIC)– Regional director of the council for the European Palestinian relations Rami Abdo said he started to try to dissuade FC Barcelona football club from inviting the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit to attend one of their matches.

Abdo stated on his facebook page that the council is making efforts to convince the club management to cancel its invitation because such step goes against the values of justice and the spirit of sport and damages the reputation of the club in the Arab world.

He noted that soldier Shalit was captured from an Israeli tank that bombed populated areas in Gaza, questioning why the club, instead, does not advocate the cause of thousands of Palestinians being held in Israeli jails.
