Palestine Solidarity Campaign's statement PDF Print E-mail

We have been overwhelmed by numerous organisations in SA and globally who at short notice began mobilising the instant they received word of Na'eem Jeenah's detention by the Israeliauthorities.


The Palestine Solidarity Campaign of SA believes we must build on these efforts to free the over 10 000 Palestinians who continue to languish in Israeli dungeons. We are also aware that despite our joyful anticipation at Na'eem's imminent arrive to his homeland, we are saddened that over 6 million Palestinians cannot return to their country. Yet,as the recent Nakba day events demonstrate this yearning remains as strong as ever. This determination will ensure victory, despite Israel's ethnic cleansing, bullets and attempts to deceive some and fragment Palestine into Bantustans.


Those of us who lived through and struggled against apartheid South Africa consider the actions of the Israeli state to surpass even the barbarism of apartheid South Africa. Isreal is already considered a pariah state in the eyes of most of humanity. It should be treated as such. We therefore support the BDS campaign wholeheartedly. From our own struggle we know that repression breeds resistance. We are confident that Israel's actions, the cause of untold misery and hardship for Palestinians today will also be the downfall of the racist Israeli state tomorrow.  We have received information that Na'eem he will be arriving at OR Tambo, on a flight from Istanbul tomorrow (Thursday, 19th May) at 8:15am.


We encourage supporters to meet him at the airport and give him a reception different from the one he received from the apartheid Israeli state.

Na'eem Jeenah deported to Istanbul after appalling treatment by Israeli authorities PDF Print E-mail

 

The director of the Afro Middle East Centre (AMEC) Na'eem Jeenah has been deported to Istanbul after ten hours of interrogation. Mr Jeenah's passport and all his belongings were not returned. He was deported late last night and is presently in a holding area at Istanbul Airport.

We call on our government to offer Mr Jeenah full consular support and to speedily facilitate his safe travel home.

AMEC also, at the very least, demands vigorous condemnation of this unconscionable act and an official protest to the Israeli government from our Department of International Relations and Cooperation. Mr Jeenah's passport and belongings must be returned to him.

AMEC has received numerous offers of help and messages of concern from South Africa and beyond. We thank all for their support. AMEC will post an official statement on their website after Mr Jeenah's return.
