Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD has condemned the mistreatment of Palestinian prisoners by the Israeli government which he described as “a violation of their human rights and a breach of international law”.

Gerry Adams urged the Minister for Foreign Affairs Charlie Flanagan TD to “urgently relay to the Israeli government the concern of the Irish people at the hunger strike of over 1000 Palestinian prisoners”.

In a letter to Minister Flanagan the Sinn Féin leader said that “the difficult search for peace and an end to the long conflict involving Israel and the Palestinian people will not be helped by the punitive ill-treatment of Palestinian prisoners, the violation of their human rights and a breach of international law”.

Teachta Adams said:

“There are approximately 6,500 political prisoners in Israeli jails, 300 are under the age of 18. 536 are held under administrative detention, which is essentially internment without trial.

“The conditions under which the prisoners are held are appalling. Torture has been documented. The Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association has reported the case of Arafat Jaradat who died six days after he was arrested by the Israelis in 2013. The post-mortem showed he had six broken bones in his spine, neck, arms, and leg. He died of cardiac arrest.

“The ill-treatment of Palestinian prisoners reflects a brutal Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories and of the siege of Gaza, which denies the Palestinian people their right to self-determination, is unjust and inflicts widespread poverty and deprivation on Palestinian citizens.

“Currently, over 1000 Palestinian prisoners are on hunger strike. They are protesting the mass incarceration of the Palestinian people by the Israeli authorities and the serious deterioration of prison conditions. The prisoners are seeking basic demands, including access to books, newspapers and clothes, and the resumption of bi-monthly family visits. They are also seeking the installation of air conditioning in prisons where summer temperatures can regularly be over 40 degrees centigrade.

“According to Addameer, more than 800,000 Palestinians have been imprisoned or detained by Israel in the last 50 years.

“On Friday, many Irish people, at home and internationally, will commemorate the death on hunger strike of Bobby Sands in 1981. Irish history is replete with examples of hunger strikes and of their potential political impact.

“The ill-treatment of political prisoners never advances the cause of peace building. As part of our peace process, the Irish and British governments understood the process would not work without agreement on the release of prisoners.

“With some Palestinian leaders, exasperated and outraged by the Israeli stance, speaking about a possible intifada, I would urge the Minister for Foreign Affairs to stress to the Israeli authorities that the ill-treatment of political prisoners is counter-productive, breaches their human rights and international law.” - Gerry Adams (@GerryAdamsSF) · Twitter

Good statement. It's a disgrace how political prisoners are being tortured and abused by the rogue Zionist régime.

Another Pally stunt that garnered a lot of support for murderers from anti Semitic arseholes -
but ultimately fizzled out.:cool:

I'd say torturing Semitic people is pretty Anti-Semitic. Particularly given that many of the Zionist leaders don't actually have a drop of Semitic blood in their own veins - Khazars.

Haven't you heard?

It's the Palestinians that are the Khazars!!!
That would be difficult, given that the Palestinians never traveled through Central Asia. No, the Palestinians are made up of Israelites who converted to Islam in the 7th and 8th centuries, along with some Christians and native people that the Israelites hadn't managed to totally exterminate. The European Jews are a mongrel breed from here, there and everywhere. A rootless seed.

Your memory is on the wane.

I referred to this, with a link, on another thread recently.

So you're only spoofing.:cool:

He didn't condemn the mistreatment of innocent civilians blown to bit by the IRA
Or the mistreatment of innocent people imprisoned for those crimes
Naked jumping around is de'regeur by the condemned it would seem

''The suicide attacks against Israeli civilians are reprehensible and we call for them to end but so too is the invasion by Israel of Palestinian territory, the attacks against Palestinians and their homes and the deliberate targeting of Palestinian leaders. This must stop and the International Community must intervene to achieve this. I welcome the emergency resolution from the UN Security Council calling for a meaningful bilateral ceasefire and for the Israelis to withdraw from Palestinian territories. Calm voices need to be heard at this time. If both nations are to avoid further suffering, there needs to be a swift return to the historic compromise between Peres and Arafat marked by the Oslo Agreement." - Gerry Adams Easter commemorations - AN PHOBLACHT/REPUBLICAN NEWS

Paul Murphy calls for an intifada against Israel, July 2013.

In an interview (jump to 07:11) on Russian state TV he calls for an uprising, not against the Russian dictatorship but against the democracy of Israel: "You've seen significant protest, significant movements, the potential to redevelop a struggle along the lines of the first intifada. That's the kind of thing that is necessary. Such a movement could link up with the genuine Israeli left, with working people and young people, who don't benefit from the oppression of the Palestinians, overthrow the capitalist establishment of Israel."

What a sinister nutcase.
  • In a passive-aggressive way, he later explains that this is not of course a call for killing. This "intifada" would be peaceful - unlike both previous intifadas.
  • But he is not totally opposed to jihad violence against Israel. Paul Murphy, 25 July 2013, openly supports violence against the IDF. "I think the Palestinians have a right to defend themselves against [Israeli] aggression and that may involve armed defence against soldiers - I wouldn't have a problem with that".
  • He lives in some imaginary world where the jihad targets the IDF rather than all Jews! - The Irish left and Israel - Politicians - Mark Humphrys
''The first intifada, which I referenced, was overwhelmingly based on the tactics of mass struggle from below – major protests, strike action, marches on checkpoints. This is what I think is absolutely needed now. The first intifada brought the Israeli establishment to the negotiation table, where shamefully the aspirations of the Palestinian people were sold out by the PA leadership, with the signing of the Oslo Accords.'' - Paul Murphy MEP defends call for intifada - Socialist Party (Ireland)

My views on the Arab Spring in February 2012:

''Gene Sharp, the American behind the Arab Revolution? In 2007, Hugo Chavez accused Sharp of being part of a CIA-led conspiracy to overthrow his government.'' - The Movement for a Socialist Republic. - Politics.ie

There's Adams statement from the Easter commemoration in 2002, where he clearly condemned suicide bombings against civilians. At that point in time, Éirígí members were in SF, and by extension, supported the Oslo Accords. It was only when they got into bed with the Socialist Party that this thought pattern began to appear, in which bombing civilians became acceptable as a tactic in a mass struggle. I would share the views of Paul Humphrys with regard to the Socialist Party. If they are the Left, I'm a Neo-Nazi.
