AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- Hundreds of Palestinian families have organized a sit-in at the center of Al-Khalil city, south of the West Bank, calling for the release of all Palestinian political detainees in the PA jails in the West Bank.

The sit-inners also expressed their disapproval for not implementing the Palestinian national reconciliation agreement signed in Cairo a couple of months ago, saying that hundreds of their sons and relatives were still under detention in harsh incarceration conditions.

They also shrugged-off the PLO-Fatah step for Palestine's full membership in the UN, asserting that those who indeed want liberty for their people shouldn’t chase and arrest them without charges.

"Fatah movement should first release all Palestinian political detainees in the PA jails before urging the Israeli occuaption to do so? Indeed, Mahmoud Abbas should provide internal freedom for his people before flying to the UN and apply the statehood bid," said the sit-inners.

They also made it sound and clear that the era of fear has gone forever and that the Palestinian people will not be less brave than their brothers in the Arab Spring revolutions.

The West Bank is Arab occupied Israeli land.

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Writer Charles Krauthammer...
Israel is the very embodiment of Jewish continuity: It is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name, speaks the same language, and worships the same God that it did 3,000 years ago. You dig the soil and you find pottery from Davidic times, coins from Bar Kokhba, and 2,000-year-old scrolls written in a script remarkably like the one that today advertises ice cream at the corner candy store.

What would happen if the Palestinians finally run Abbas and his illegal government out of the West Bank?

Travel bans and other human rights violations on all Pallies under the Hamas nazis

Hamas Bans Gaza Students Studying Abroad
Gaza's militant Hamas rulers have banned eight teenage students with scholarships to study in the U.S. from leaving the territory, a Palestinian rights group said Wednesday.

The move appeared to be part of an intensified Hamas campaign against independent groups that they view as a challenge to their rule and against activities that believe promote a Western lifestyle.

The Palestinian Center for Human Rights said the eight students were granted AMIDEAST scholarships, a program that educates talented teenagers from the Middle East and North Africa for a year in the U.S. At the end of the year, students return to their home countries to finish their education. The students were granted scholarships based on their academic achievements.

In a statement, the rights group said Hamas' education minister rejected a travel request by the teenager's parents for "social and cultural reasons." It also accused Hamas of breaching the parents' right to educate their children as they choose.

Hamas would not confirm the order, much as it has in the past with similar orders travel bans on Gaza residents.

But the parents of 15-year-old Aboud Alshatari said their son was traveling to the border Wednesday when Hamas police turned him away, saying the Education Ministry refused to let him leave Gaza. Alshatari was slated to attend school in North Carolina.

The ban comes a day after a network of aid groups in Gaza criticized Hamas for forcing aid workers and employees of civil society groups to register with them before traveling for work outside the Gaza Strip. And last week, Hamas shut down the U.S.-financed International Medical Corps after it refused to submit to a Hamas audit.

The Iranian-backed Hamas overran Gaza from the secular Palestinian Fatah party in bloody street battles in 2007. Since then, Hamas has slowly imposed its radical interpretation of Islam on residents of the Gaza Strip — a world view that is even more stern than what traditionally religious conservative Gazan's follow.

Other Hamas crackdowns include trying to ban male barbers from cutting women's hair and forbidding women from smoking in public and outlawing scantly clad female mannequins.
