Pro-Palestinian activists shout anti-Israeli slogans during a protest outside the French Football Federation (FFF) office in Paris on April 17, 2013.
Pro-Palestinian activists have staged a protest outside the office of the French Football Federation (FFF) in Paris, demanding the release of Palestinian sportsmen held by Israel.

Dozens of activists gathered in front of the FFF building on Wednesday to demand the federation get information on two jailed Palestinian footballers.

They say Omar Abu Rouis and Mohammed Nemer from the Palestinian National Team have been imprisoned by Israel since February 2012, and there is no word on their whereabouts.

Olivia Zemor, a spokesperson for the activists, said the two men have been behind bars without having been charged or brought to trial and were tortured during their interrogations.

The protesters were holding placards and banners bearing anti-Israeli slogans. “Criminal Israel FFF accomplice” and “Free the imprisoned Palestinian footballers,” they read.

French police reportedly broke up the protest and forcibly evacuated the activists.

Meanwhile, Palestinian football player Mahmoud Sarsak is touring France to raise awareness on Israel’s torturing of jailed Palestinian sportsmen.

Sarsak was arrested by Israel forces in July 22, 2009 and released July 10, 2012 after a hunger strike. He says he was imprisoned by Israel without any legal bases and was tortured while in custody.

According to Palestinian sources, over 4,500 Palestinian prisoners are held in Israeli prisons, many of them without charge or trial, and are subject to human rights violations such as the use of torture during interrogations.

Martyred By Israeli Occupation Attacks

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.
