GAZA CITY (Ma’an) — More than 100 Palestinians from Gaza have been stuck at Cairo International Airport for more than three weeks after being prevented by Egyptian authorities from traveling to their final destinations.

The stranded passengers told Ma’an that most of the group had escaped from Gaza during a five-day ceasefire in mid-August in order to fly back to their places of residence in Saudi Arabia.

Egyptian authorities prevented them from flying, however, because their visas had expired.

Abu Ahmad, 54, told Ma’an that the families’ visas had expired because they were unable to leave Gaza during the Israeli offensive, which lasted more than seven weeks and left more than 2,000 dead.

Abu Ahmad said that the families had taken the first opportunity to leave and return to their homes in Saudi Arabia, but were now being forcibly kept at the airport by Egyptian authorities.

He added that the families had almost no money to cover their expenses in Cairo.

Abu Ahmad said that the dozens of families stuck at the airport had contacted the Palestinian embassy in Cairo and the embassy had appealed to officials in Saudi Arabia, but they were still awaiting a response.



 

THE LEGAL RIGHT OF RESISTANCE

Is Resisting Genocide a Human Right?

Right to Resist

81 Notre Dame Law Review1275 (2006). Conducting an in-depth study of the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, and also discussing other genocides, this article details the inadequacy of many of the international community’s response to genocides, such as “targeted sanctions” or international peacekeeping forces. Examining international legal authorities such as the Genocide Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Court of Justice, the article demonstrates that groups which are being subjected to genocide have a legal right of self-defense. International treaties, Security Council arms embargoes, or national gun control laws cannot lawfully be enforced in a manner which prevents self-defense resistance to a genocide in progress, because under international law, the prohibition against any form of complicity in genocide takes legal precedence over lesser laws.

Genocide in Photos

Since 1937 (Pre)Israel terrorism commits ongoing massacres in Palestine. Violent genocide, but the least known, silent genocide causing excess death by deliberate racist policies of deprivation. The same deprivation which according the Israeli narrative have cost 1/6 of Jewish Holocaust victims (1 of 6 million). The cost in human lives by avoidable mortality for the sake of the creation of Israel according to research (by Dr. Gideon Polya) in Palestine and neighboring countries is 24 million lives.
