    LONDON, (PIC)-- A High Court in the UK held two prolonged sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday over an appeal against the deportation of Palestinian political leader Raed Salah.

    It was ruled that further hearings would be postponed until Tuesday to finish presenting witnesses and evidence.

    According to the British media, UK Home Secretary Theresa May sent emails in search of a reason to exclude Salah from the country ahead of his expected visit to participate in conferences. The Home Secretary was warned by officials in the UK Border Agency not to deport Salah as the evidence against him was “finely balanced” and could be challenged in the courts.

    Meanwhile, the Turkish Mazlumder human rights organization in Turkey has written a formal letter to the British Authorities, including the Queen of England, the Prince of Wales, and UK Prime Minister David Cameron, appealing for Salah’s release as well as an apology to Salah and all Muslims, saying that arrest served as a profiling attack.

    Things are moving on and hopefully this will have a just conclusion

    How the CST got the Home Secretary’s ear | Jews for Justice for Palestinians

    The UK government is currently acting disgracefully. Wanting us (the Conservatives anyway) to opt out of EU Human rights and refusing to go to the UN conference on racism.

    But possibly for Raed Salah personally it is equally important that this is seen for the sham it is as at the time of his arrest, Israeli papers were whooping it up and saying that if Britain sent him to jail what were they doing letting walk him free. Now it looks like it was them who set him up in the first place. Fingers crossed our courts sort this out.

    It's not about Muslim countries respecting human rights. It's about Muslims in countries that do respect human rights demanding those rights.

    I'll leave this up to the courts and lawyers and speak on it when the final considerations have been written.

    What rights should be accorded to those who accuse Jews of ritual killings in an attempt to incite violence against them? Throw the motherfucker in the Mediterranean with concrete slabs on his feet.

    On Tuesday, proceedings accelerated as Salah’s team squeezed three DVDs of video evidence and all four of its witnesses in before the end of the two-day slot allocated by the court system. Dr. Stefan Sperl, an expert in Arabic poetry from the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, gave an analysis of the original text of a poem by Salah called “A Message to the Oppressors” saying it was addressed to all “perpetrators of injustice,” whether Jews or not. He said a Jerusalem Post article characterizing it as anti-Semitic was deliberately misleading. A version with the words “you Jews” inserted into the poem seems to have been used in the UKBA document.

    Aside from the mangled version of his poem, the other main citation the government gave was a speech Salah gave in Jerusalem in 2007, in which he had talked about Israeli soldiers shedding the blood of Palestinians. The citation had reportedly included the line: “Whoever wants a more thorough explanation, let him ask what used to happen to some children in Europe, whose blood was mixed in with the dough of the holy bread.”

    Hostile press coverage in Israel inserted the word “Jewish” in square brackets before the words “holy bread” (“Islamic Movement head charged with incitement to racism, violence,” Haaretz, 29 January 2008).

    There was a similar government attempt to misrepresent the word “intifada,” which Sheldon classified as dangerous language. Salah explained he was referring to a civic uprising against injustice, and as proof of this pointed to his call in the relevant speech to lawyers, heads of state, scholars and political parties to join the intifada.

    This whole thing started when an Israeli propaganda organization lied to the British government.

    Palestinians are the most fucked up people in the worlod, even other Arabs hate them. :lol:

    Wall Street Journal: The Arab World's Dirty Secret".
    But, here is why I'm proud to be a Palestinian :clap2:

    1. There is no such thing as Mothers Day. No worry about cards, gifts, and expensive meals. There is no honor in being a woman in our culture, so there is no reason to devote a day to her. We do, however, get to enjoy watching our fathers beat our mothers senseless for the slightest real or imagined infraction. Also, if Dad suspects that Mom spoke to a strange man in the street, he gets to kill her to preserve the family honor!

    2. Weapons. Every child, from the time he can grasp an object, is trained to feel comfortable with a rifle or pistol in his hand. And every Palestinian has a weapon: a gun, a rocket launcher, a pound of C-4. What good are hands if they aren't used to kill?

    3. Hate. Boy, we love to hate. Hate is the very basis and foundation of our culture. From the time a child is old enough to understand language, we teach him to hate. Hate Jews, hate the West, hate his fellow man, and most of all, hate himself. We have no love songs, we do not preach love, the word love does not appear anywhere in our society. Hate is the fuel that runs our motors.

    4. Death. The moment a Palestinian Arab child is born, his parents begin to plan his death. How will he die? Will he be struck by an Israeli bullet while being used as a human shield by Palestinian gunmen? Will he get shot while throwing rocks at Jewish soldiers? Will he be packed with explosives and sent to blow himself up, killing others? Or will he merely be one of the many Palestinians murdered by other Palestinians in the normal course of daily life in
    the death-culture of the Palestinian Arabs? Who knows? That's part of the thrill.

    5. Unemployment. Palestinians used to have jobs, working in Israel. But then, our leaders had a brilliant idea: suicide bombings! For their own protection, Israel had to close its borders, preventing Palestinians from going to their jobs, so they could sit around unemployed and blame the Jews for it. What great fun to be your own worst enemy!

    6. Martyrdom. Who in their right mind wants to be a martyr? Among normal people, a martyr complex is considered immature and obnoxious, if not downright crazy. With us, it's the central syndrome of our society! Hey, look at me, I'm gonna kill myself and become admired! And then, when we do kill ourselves, instead of being considered pathetic, we DO get admired! It's a whole complete cycle of sickness! American kids collect baseball cards; Palestinian kids collect martyr cards (really! no joke!).

    7. A feeling of entitlement. When Israel came into being, we declared war. We lost. We fought again. We lost. We fought again. We lost. Israel had the right to kill us all (we sure would kill all of them if we got the chance). Instead, they allow us to live on land they conquered. But we can't leave that alone. We have to claim entitlement to live on land that we lost in 6 wars. Since when does the loser of a war get to claim the land he fought over? They don't. But we do. Not only that, but we happily kill our kids over it! Hey, what's more important -- a chunk of dirt, or some worthless kid who isn't going to amount to anything anyway?

    8. Uselessness. The Jews have won more Nobel Prizes than all other ethnic groups combined. Their contributions to science, art, literature and the humanities is far out of proportion to their population. What have Palestinians produced? Nothing! Not a thing. We don't do anything productive. We're too busy rioting and killing and chanting and screaming and calling for everyone's death. And we blame the Jews for it, as though the Jews stop us from being productive.

    9. Friends. The Palestinian people sure know how to pick 'em. Saadam Hussein. The Taliban. Adolf Hitler. You name a psychopath, and we embrace him. And look who our supporters are! The American Nazi Party. The KKK. Just check their websites and see how they stand in solidarity with us. When you support the Palestinian "cause," you're in real good company. Bring your white sheet!

    10. Freedom. The biggest laugh in the world is when people call us "freedom fighters" or they say we're fighting for our freedom. Take a look at all 22 Arab countries. Do you see any freedom there? Well, that's what our country will be like if we ever get one. It
    will be a dictatorship run by armed, masked thugs who will kill anyone who dissents. Just like we are now. Freedom???? LOLOLOLOL The word doesn't even exist in our language. Hey, just like George Orwell said: "Freedom is slavery. Long live big brother!"

    Remember: Israel is bad!
    Its existence keeps reminding us what a bunch of losers we are.
